This is a steampunk pirate costume I designed and made for a customer. The belt has little glass tubes to store pearls and herbs, a hook to hold keys on, and a small pouch. The belt buckle I made by placing a plastic bird skull decorated with chain. The bustle can be let down by unlatching decorative hooks on the waistband.
Very impressive gallery of craft and design. I could easily see my character of Dr. Catherine Seward (Widow of the late Dr. John Seward) wearing this in my Steampunk stage adaptation of "DRACULA, the Mina Harker Journals". The belt is particularly perfect for her to carry about the medicines and inoculations she administers to patients (Such as the unfortunate Mr. Renfield) in the asylum she runs.
