Completed:  ---
Worn at: Various Steampunk events, FanExpo 2010, FanExpo 2011

Why I chose this costume:
I have several reincarnations of my Steampunk costumes, but most of them revolve around the same various pieces. My 1876 walking skirt from Harper’s Bazaar, the leg ‘o mutton sleeve blouse, a new black crinkle-charmeuse top worn exclusively with an underbust corset, a leather bustier… and countless accoutrements are part of this ever-growing wardrobe.

My main Steampunk character’s name is Miss Camille Léon, (but sometimes goes by Ms. Grenadine). She is a rich widow, with nothing but time and money on her hands to go gallivanting at her leisure.

Lady Léon: the final-ish incarnation of my Steampunk costume still includes my walking skirt, but also a black crinkle-charmeuse and wasp-waist corset, reticule purse, as well as a black top hat, dreadfalls, and large lilies. I think this is my favorite look so far.
