Steampunk First Mate by ArtCreationist Steampunk First Mate by ArtCreationist
This is my finished First Mate steampunk garb.yay  I created the sleeveless jacket using a vintage 1960's dress pattern that I modified. (I moved the opening to the front, took the sleeves out, added a collar, and added slits at the sides and back. I also used metal findings and chains as closures and accents. In the hem of each panel, I sewed in 4 glass marbles so the jacket would swing when I walk. I do like ball bearing better for that job but I was out. In addition to all that, I made the jacket reversible. I hope to use the flip side as steampunk circus garb.):trenchcoatnoid:  The shirt was created from the same pattern as the white shirt in my profile photo but, again, modified. (I added a sheer metallic overlay and metal findings and scales at the points of each sleeve.)Sailing the seven seas  The red shirt is one I received as a gift. Pirate The velvet pants are hand-me-down (gotten from a friend who had no more use for them). The boots...I'm almost positive I bought them at Hot Topic and I added a chain onto each which I hung scales from. I wanted them to jingle when I walk but in a certain way. Pirate Flag I was satisfied with the result, so I guess that's a win! Lovely Shoujo Emoji (Yay Hurray) [V2] I created all the medals and the patch out of woven and grosgrain ribbons, metal findings and charms of all sorts and brooch backings. .: Gold Rosette :. The hat is from our time in the Society for Creative Anachronism. I also wore a red cape I made years ago, back when I was sewing strictly by hand, but I chose not to add it in the photo. Double Paws I made the earrings I wore. I added a large Asian themed coin pendant onto a hoop for one ear. Smile_Coin In the other ear, I created two dangling earrings of different lengths, using metal star charms, metal bead separators, and scales.Star Bullet (Yellow) - F2U! The belt was my dad's and he wore it when he was a teenager back in the 60's. They used to make stuff that would last!INDEED!  I added my stainless steel orb on a black ball chain to the belt, as well as a chain with a gear on it to help hold the end of the belt up and keep it from flapping. Metal emote   I worked on this photo at least an hour and a half (since I started working on it during the second half of Batman and finished halfway through Star Trek). I'm still learning Gimp, still a beginner, but this is pretty close to what I was trying to achieve.Neko Emoji-38 (Music) [V2]  I'm so pleased with all the results, both in the costume and the photo edit. bunneh icon14 bunneh icon3

I'm tired of clicking 'edit' and I couldn't leave out the guest appearance of our cat 'Grey.'Pusheen Emote  If I didn't mind cat hair or claws on my silk brocade that I can't replace, I'd have held her. cat I think it would've been super cool!Pink Kitty I also have to thank JDKittlesPhotography  for helping learn how to use the layer mask in Gimp. Love cat icon I'd have less hair if it wasn't for him. :goatee:
