Steampunk is many things: a fashion statement, a literary genre, an attitude. And while it may seem like just another passing fad, those in the know understand that this lifestyle will always be a thing of the past – and that’s a good thing.
We’ve got a staff full of the pop and counter-culture obsessed, so steampunk has been on our radars for a long time. But for the uninitiated, Steampunk embraces the simplicity of pre-industrial revolution technologies, such as steam power, while at the same time taking on a beautifully modern design aesthetic. This makes for a look that is both retro and modern, which makes it uniquely stylish.
This women’s steampunk costume will help you stand out in a crowd this Halloween by showing off that modern sophistication through retro details. The women’s costume includes a dress that has Hook and Loop fastener tabs in the back for a secure fit. The bodice, sleeves, and yoke of the costume are all made of brown velvet for a classic yet elegant look. The dress has cream interlock ruffes at the edges of the sleeves as well as faux suede side panels and an interlock center panel on the bodice. The keyhole cutout below the high, ruffled collar gives it an added bit of detail. The skirt of the dress has an asymmetric hemline that is longer in the back for fuller coverage. The included faux leather buckled straps go across the wrists of brown velvet gloves. The foam top hat never loses its shape and has a brown velvet cover to match the rest of the look. The final touch is the plastic goggles that have an elastic band for a secure and comfortable fit. Add a pair of sexy high heeled boots for a complete look that’s out of this time period!
Wasn't sure what my costume would be until a couple of weeks before. First, a mermaid, but didn't fit in the "tail" skirt. Saw this and really liked it.
When it came, I tried it on and it looked really good and fit like a glove (bought the 8/10).
I bought the petticoat to go with it even though I have black tutus from ballet; the one that came was the high/low one.
I bought the gators to go over my boots separately and they looked OK, but were hard to keep up with the garters that had nothing to hold onto. It still worked overall, though.
I didn't like the white rope changed out the one on the hat, but didn't get to the dress itself. In the picture, I'm wearing round old-fashioned glasses that didn't stay on very well, but was fun for pictures. The "gun" is from the dollar store. Many compliments and would love to wear it again somehow. It would be good to wear over a "real" steampunk skirt to be more authentic.
The tulle in the shoulders was a little itchy, but overall very comfortable.
Y’all!!! This fit like a glove! I am hippy and boobish so got the XL - stuff the hat the week before so it holds its shape! That’s my one suggestion! I added nothing but boots. A petticoat would have been cute cause it’s slightly see through but I wore bike shorts so no issues! It’s comfortable - it’s adorable! If you are teetering between l and xl - do xl - it’s tight but it stretches
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
This steampunk costume was awesome and turned heads at a couple of different parties. The costume got many compliments for its authenticity and high-quality look. I loved the fact that the costume was complete (everything except the petticoat and boots were included); comfortable; and reasonably priced. I highly recommend this costume!
My order came 5 days earlier than promised, which was great all by itself. Then the costume fit really well based on their size chart. I bought one size up from my normal size because of the measurements. The costume itself appears to be made quite well and the best part was that when I put it on everyone thought I looked totally awesome! With my tall brown boots, this is a winner!
I’m 5’1 and got an xs, this costume fit terribly and it’s clear it’s only made for taller body types. Looked really cheap and was not aware it didn’t include the tutu/skirt, which you will need to purchase separately. There wasn’t a single spot this dress fit me right I regret buying.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
The costume fit me perfectly for once! I’m petite and it’s been a nightmare to find one that works. It comes with all the accessorizes that are listed! Hat is perfect. Wish people knew what a steampunk is tho!
I think that this costume is great. I order the XS and the front length on here says 31" but in realty it is about 10" shorter, I now need to find something to go under it to make it appropriate to wear to a child's Halloween birthday party this weekend.
Love this outfit and when i ordered it, it stated it would be here on october 14 but it came the sixth. Love how early it came! Also the costume is great quality for the price, comes with the whole outfit: gloves, hat, dress, goggles. Very pretty, only downside is hat is made cheaply and is colapsable. But for the price i am happy. If you get certain coupons i only paid thirty five bucks so whoop
