Whether you are new to Steampunk or are pretty familiar it, this workshop offers the opportunity to get ideas and help with creating a persona/costume for Steampunk. Please feel free to bring props, projects, hats, fake weapons, clothing, pictures, etc. of costume ideas that you have.
Sewing skills are helpful but not required. A lot of clothing and accessories can be found in thrift/antique stores, online, and at booths at conventions, etc.
We can also take a trip to the fabric store a few doors down.

You can also take an established character like a Disney princess and make it a Steampunk version.
Here are some commonly used personas: aristocrat, scientist, pirate, mechanic, academic, and military.
