Time for me to do a real sewing post again.

In a unplanned  twist, sis has decided her Halloween costume already, and I'm going to be making a costume in a a simler theme, so that we can be a pair. After I splurge and got her a top hat for her birthday, she has decided she want to make a Steampunk plague doctor, specifically one like this hibbary over on DA draws

The Grand Doctor by `hibbary on deviantART

Eve of the First Snow by `hibbary on deviantART

Yes, scary dude.
And now her, modeling the top hat that started all this.

hibbary has kindly give her permission to copy as much for those drawing as she like to. :)
And how am I going to pair with this? I'm going to be the Steampunk nurse.
The challenge is hibbary didn't draw a nurse... I have to make it up. And try and make them "match" in the way scary things like that match. With out looking like something from Silent Hill.
I know I want a mask as well, but I think I do something like those little nurse masks, but in leather. After that, it all in the air as to what I doing with this. Do I go a Victorian looking rout? Hoe do I keep it Steampunk? How do I keep it from truing too fetish? (A little is all right, but I'm now wearing tight leather here!)

And you know what would be reall cool? if we could con bro to go as a GRAVEDIGGER! *evil laugh*

Funny, I didn't recognize who was posting this until I saw the pic of your sister and thought, wow, she looks familiar! LOL

I LOVE the artwork - your costumes are going to be fantastic! Ms Boo wants to do a FHANTOM event near Halloween, so you'll have yet another place to show them off!

Hey, that's actually a pretty good outline of a nurse outfit. I'm kinda think something in that style.. I'm thinking, darker, scarier colors (like making the apron dark red)

Meh, but this is more fun! :P
