Amaizing! Have you ever thought of using some paint to create a worn-out look in your jacket? It might add to the awesomeness of the rest of the outfit.

I hope it will never be finished ;)
I'm still working on the outfit. What do you mean exactly with "paint to create a worn-out look"? (I'm hungry for every new idea for the outfit) Could you give me an example?

Haha that's the spirit! Well what I meant is that the entire outfit has this worn-out look, like it has gone through battle or something, except the jacket, it looks new.Instead of waiting for it to gain that look naturally you could use some paint to add to the effect. I found a tutorial that might express better what I have in mind: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQaS7VGv60c There are a lot of common do-it-yourself tutorials for the steam-punk, and related trends, that I am sure that can help you. I hope this clears it up. :)

Oh, ok. Thanks a lot. Now i know what you mean. I have to do some tests, the jacket is black and made of felt. Hm, not ease, maybe sandpaper could make a great effect.

Who knows, the sandpaper could do the job. Whatever method you use, I hope to see the results. I am sure they will turn out great. Good luck!

Thank you very much.
The mask was made by a friend of mine. He used two bottles for spray, a golden shower pipe and a some leather and brass (waterpipes). You can find 90% of the mask in your bathroom ;)

Thanks a lot.
Im still working on the costume and the character.

It's a post-apocalyptic-Steampunk Character. You will see it on DA if i have something more. And yes....its world-wide the first Steampunk character with googles which make a sense :D

Very awesome! I love how you used the Freddy claws! I have the same glove from Halloween four years ago...

Thank you. The claws have caused "some" attention at this great event.
One of the smallest countries in the world, but they have the biggest steampunk-event in continental europe.
