Do you ever get tired of modern technology, not because of how it works, but because of how it looks? We totally get it. Sometimes even state of the art gadgets and gizmos look like cheap flashy junk. If you're the type of gal that prefers brass, gears, and leather over plastic, LCDs, and wi-fi, then this Plus Size Steampunk Lady Costume is just the getup for your retro adventure!
What exactly makes something “steampunk”? A lot of times, it's something that you just know when you see it, but there's definitely more to making something steampunk than slapping some valves on it and putting it on board a zeppelin. It's a unique style that fuses Victorian Era fashion and sensibility with the loud, gritty, and dangerous look of the Industrial Revolution, which makes everything appear more exciting! For instance, would you want to drive your boring old car to work everyday if you could pilot a “pneumatic powered quad-wheeled auto-buggy” instead? Even though those are basically the same things, the second one sounds much cooler!
The same goes for costumes, and this steampunk getup is much cooler than an average outfit. This costume includes nearly everything you'll need to look daring on your outing, and features a corset-style bodice and a ruffled skirt with industrial-looking faux buckle straps. The matching sleeves and glovelettes add dashing detail to your ensemble, and the foam shaped top hat and vintage style goggles should come in handy if things get dicey. Add a pair of fierce buckled boots and some tights to complete this sassy look, and you'll be ready for some steam-powered action!

The costume is of a very high standard. I took a larger measure because I was afraid the fabric would be strong. I should not have taken a measure anymore. I would recommend a friend for this costume!Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Was this review helpful to you?
- Fits like a gLOVE!!! ;-DBy Shaharazad | September 10, 2023
I read many reviews on both this site and Amazon and a lot of women my height (5' 3.5") and weight (239 lbs) OR a bit plumper chose the 2X like I did & they were all RIGHT!!! It does not hug the belly area, which is MY biggest insecurity at the moment and the arms fit very nicely. It was a TINY bit big in the chest area for me because I have more hips and less in the top but it still fit pretty amazingly in my opinion. The material was not cheaply made like I thought it would be based on some reviews and nothing came apart at all! I just wore it to the Time Traveler's Weekend for the New York Renaissance Faire and got many compliments (seriously.... not trying to toot my own horn!) I enjoyed wearing this and definitely recommend it! <3Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Was this review helpful to you?

Height 5'3" | Weight 325 | Size 4XThis costume is truly awesome! I'm always nervous about ordering costumes online for my super plus sized bod, but this fit perfectly and had just enough stretch to be wonderfully forgiving where you'd like it to be! The included accessories were great, too. Super quick shipping. I did add a petticoat to give the skirt a boost based on other reviews and was glad I did (I added a mesh undershirt, too, but that's not needed). If you're on the fence let this be your nudge to go for it!Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Was this review helpful to you?
- Lots of compliments...By Laurie | October 30, 2022
Height 5'3" | Weight 245 | Size 2XI ordered this in a 2XL to be sure I had enough "wiggle room." My bust is 42-44DD & I wear a 16W or 18W in jeans & I'm 5'3". Didn't have to take anything in, it fit perfect! I put a petticoat underneath it to give it volume. I also bought my own hat & decorated it for more "umph." Sewed gears onto the gloves, too.
I got SO many compliments at the event we attended! Saw one other lady in the same costume, but she styled hers a little differently so no problem there.
Overall, great purchase. Fabric was substantial, colors were true to the photo & fit was great. Good job!Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Was this review helpful to you?
- Better than expected and good fit!By Anonymous | October 24, 2015
Just got this today and was really surprised at how well it fits; and how well made it is for the price.
I bought this costume to go to a Halloween wedding; that is steampunk themed. I bought the 3X and it fits really well. It is more snug than I ordinarily wear my dresses, but, as you can see by the model, it's supposed to fit closely to your torso.
A few things to consider when buying this costume:
The goggles on the hat are cheap plastic and the band is too tight and squishes the top hat.
Also, you will want to get some spray starch and a hair dryer set on high heat to help pop your top hat open and keep it that way. You just spray the heavy duty starch inside and use the hair dryer until it sets. Make sure to buy the spray starch that does not leave marks on dark fabric. I did mine four or five times, inside and out, to make sure the hat will keep it's shape, even if it rains. I used the lace up the front. I did mine from top to bottom to leave the bow closer to the band; and the scarf and added an Alice in Wonderland brooch to the front of the hat to pull it all together. A nice set of goggles would probably also work well.
I also bought a black petticoat to help fluff out the skirt a bit. That adds a really nice touch.
The only other items you will need are some shoes and whatever type of leg covering you choose. I'm going in black and white stripe tights with steampunk heels with gears and brass fittings on them.
I highly recommend this costume, and I will post pictures after the wedding.Was this review helpful to you?
- Great Costume!By Anonymous | September 17, 2016
Listed my measurements for size comparisons.
Size Purchased: 3X
Pant Size: 24-26 US
Bra Size: 44DD US
Arm Circumference (Widest Part) 18.5 inches
Waist: 38 inches
Hips: 51 inches
Height: 5'5" (Five foot five)
How it fit:
I put this on and oh. My. God. It was beautiful on me! The arms were just a bit tight for me, but everything else fit nicely. The length was good and when I get my petticoat it's going to look even better.
My recommendations if you buy this costume:
1. *Gently* tug out the tags. They're placed in a rather uncomfortable spot in the arm and it will itch otherwise.
2. If you're handy with a sewing machine, top stitching wouldn't hurt for just a bit more security.
3. Petticoat is a must for a full looking costume!
4. If you decide to just use the goggles instead of putting them on the hat like I am, I would suggest attaching them to a headband or attaching cloth to prevent sliding.
Happy shopping!Was this review helpful to you?
- Cute dress, but hat leaves a lot to be desired.By Robin | August 17, 2023
The dress and gloves are actually really cute. We are using them for color guard and they are loved by all of my girls. The only problem is the hat is very low quality and the goggles look like a toy for a 3 year old. Not very realistic and the band that holds them on the hat makes the hat squeeze down weird.Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Was this review helpful to you?

- Halloween DressBy Anonymous | November 1, 2017
Got this for this years Halloween 10/2017.
Costume size- 3x
It fit pretty well a little tight in the bust but the way my bust popped out the top looked good ha ha! . I also switched out the white cord on the hat and chest for a maroon lacy ribbon which gave the overall look a bit more oomph. Adding a petticoat is a must also!
Only problem I had was the dress stitching was BADLY done. There were loose threads and a rip on the side and thread along the gold trim in the front was coming apart too when i took it out of the bag and I hadn't put it on yet but I didn't have time to return/exchange before Halloween so i babied it the best i could. I would recommend buying as long as you have time to either exchange it or have someone with a sewing machine who can reinforce or fix the threads if it shows up like mine did.Was this review helpful to you?
