Steampunk Cosplay Thrift Store Adventure

  • Apr 14, 2013 · 11:00 AM

Have you thought about creating a Steampunk persona but didn’t know where to start or do you already have one started but want to add to the flare?

Join us in finding pieces that may fit your Steampunk cosplay persona, or any other cosplay for that matter!!!

After attending an awesome panel at Arisia and getting tips and ideas from the panelists, as well as, from awesome people running some of the booths in the dealer room, myself and a few others have decided to Steampunk ourselves in preparense for Watch City in May.

The plan:

Meet at a central location and hop from thrift store to thrift store looking for anything that could help build what we need. We may also stop in to some hardware stores or other places that offer items that may be useful in the Steampunk genre.

Possible points of interest:

Big Goodwill
Goodwill in Davis Square
The Garment District
Sewfisticated
Sewlow
Windsor Button – Possibly going out of business though…
Hardware store
Note: The goodwill thrift stores are open on Sundays from 10-6.

Any other potential stops along the way are greatly appreciated! Please feel free to share some of your successful gems in the rough for Steampunk awesomeness!

Once we have a map of the day, I will post a meeting location, as well as, our itinerary for the day. This will only act as a guide though. Changes can and potentially will be made as the day progresses, so if you have a place you really want to visit, let me know so I can make sure its included.

Hope to see you there!!
