Steampunk cosplay: Which one? by Wolfsoul125 Steampunk cosplay: Which one? by Wolfsoul125
Hi guys!

I'm planning to do a steampunk cosplay and I just wanna know your opinion. So, which one should it be? :)

1. Treasure hunter
2. Scientist
3. Engineer
4. Racer
5. Pilot

Please include that I'm kinda short (163 cm) and not a model slim girl but not chubby either (I'm somewhere in between...). And my face, let's say it, not really pretty but make up can do miracles!:dummy: I hope :"D

Wow, we're the exact same length and from your description I get the idea that we also have sort of the same body type. My own steampunk outfit will be a bit like the top of 1 and the bottom of 3 (short-sleeved shirt, corset, one long glove, shorts and bustle skirt, belt with bag, stockings, knee-high socks and lace-up heels).

based on your description i'd say number 1 would be perfect for you - it'd flatter and hide the appropriate places.
stripes are amazing when used right (up and down 'lengthens' you), and the belt around the middle sometimes emphasises the hips a bit too much if you have wide hips to begin with, but a corset does wonders, and the two should compliment each other. that dress/jacket combo is stunning, and it'll be comfy to wear as well.
failing that, i'd go with number 4 - cut outs tend to emphasise the place where there's no material, ie; your thighs, but if you work the cutout right, it can also make you look thinner (like your thighs are only as wide as the darker material).
...though i do like number 2....
stay away from the coat, though - coats aren't a good look for shorter people.
your call, anyway.
i love all of them, btw - are they your designs?

Piolet is cool! If you are short, long dresses aren't the best idea ^u^

1,5 így rajzon ezek jólnéznekki XD talán még a 4 [csak a csini mellényt necces beszerezni, de a többirészét könnyebben :'D]

A 3 az túlfuri XDD ruhára lenge, de nem túl nőies a többi része [ kesztyű,se a csizma a szerelős-csavarkulcsos övtatyóse]

#5 though I'm a sucker for adding scarves to steampunk pilots. That's my vote. Though I find that props are very important to selling a steampunk. maybe brainstorm a few if you aren't doing the engineer.

#4 might work better if you didn't have the midriff opening- unless you've got abdominal definition(strong). Looking like you can handle lifting heavy equipment/wrangling an out of control vehicle is generaly a big advantage for 3 &4.

#2 mould work well if there were other props/lab apron/lab-coat. it speaks of something else as it is. And stockings for the garter-if it can be functional without violating laws of some sort it's more authentic if it's functional. Excluding nerf gun mods in conventions

and #1 needs props the most to not end up feeling like a bar-wench cosplay.- something to test metals/electricity, check the authenticity of jewels, something to handle danger... A bigger pouch or several might be ideal.

Ah, I guess I went and critiqued as well. I apologize if I trod on toes.

Nah, it's okay every critique helps me so I appreciate yours as well. :)
I know that steampunk is the best when it's detailed. These sketches are just the very bases of my thoughts so it'll be with more props and accessories.
But I really like your ideas and thank you for sharing your opinion. :)

Thanks. I know a lot of people are expanding well past the victorian aspect of steampunk. I'm still waiting on one of the locals 'roller derby girl' steampunk. I think that would be fascinating.

steampunk roller derby?
...
all i can see now is big poofy skirts and scary girls throwing oddly luminous vials around O-O;;
while wielding oversized, modified wrenches with extreme prejudice.
thank you - the laugh is appreciated! ^_^

3, 4, or 5. 1 seems more like a boutique worker, and 2 looks rather dainty for steampunk designs.

I think that if you're not very slim or model-like , number 1 and 2 would fit better that the others... for example number 3 in for skinny ones like Number 4 is for normal ones.... Though I think that number 5 would fit too :S i dont know.... anyways i rly love number 4...the Racer xD

They are all very good. I'd go with 1 personally, but I would've had a tophat with goggles. I luv dem goggle-tophats. xD
5 would've been my second choice, but it doesn't feel as steampunkish as 1.
Hmm yeah, I'd have to vote for 1.
