Costume Contest – Eloise Green

Eloise Green 2This afternoon’s featured contestant in the Steampunk (Online) Costume Contest is the Baroness Evaine Morgana Blackwood aka Eloise Green.

This costume is my first steampunk attempt ever. Dare I say it, I’m a bit proud of the final product.
‘Baroness Evaine Morgana Blackwood’ is the name of this character. I wanted a strong sounding name to match this costume. And ‘the Baroness’ is what I came up with.

My challenge was to avoid buying something that I could make myself. 
This entire outfit is made from secondhand clothing, dollar shop purchases, recycled items and wonderflex. The dress is made from two dresses that I took apart and rejoined the bits I wanted. The jacket was a men’s fake leather jacket which I cut in half and embellished with watch parts. The other half I used to make leather belts. The corset I made smaller and added leather panels, clock faces and belts. To save money, I made moulds of watch parts which I then cast myself.

I used a pair of swimming goggles, sprayed it, and glued all sorts of bits onto it. The hat I made from craft foam. I used wonderflex to make the mask. And pimped an old granny shopping trolley and parasol.

Tomorrow by midnight (EST) is the last chance to enter a picture of your favorite outfit . . . voting begins June 19th.
