Bollywood Steampunk (Lady Sunahala Registana) by MakeupSiren

When it came to designing this bollywood steampunk cosplay I wanted to use the draping style I seen in the bollywood film "Jodhaa Akbar" I love the way the saree in the movie was done and wanted to do the same kind of style for my bollywood steampunk. The color was another aspect i want to bring into look as well. Steampunk seem to always be on the dark side. I wanted to start bring more color into the bollywood steampunk cosplay. I mean who wants to wear black or brown all the time.

Character Bio
Star! Lady Sunahalā Rēgistāna Bio Star!
She is an Indian girl born and raised in Rajasthan, sunny desert of India. Her father named her after the beautiful land she was born in (Sunahala: Golden, Registana: Desert). She is a part of tribe called Rabari, a tribe that has lived for 1000 of year in the desserts of India. She Lives in a village with her tribe that is a mix of Indian tradition and steam power living. Her father is a well respected creator of the town. He created industrial machines call sand riders, that help the tribe ride the large desert sand dunes and hill. The sand riders is important to the tribe since it help send and receives goods to and from market.  They are much faster than dessert horses, so it is preferred to all in the tribe. Sunahalā is smart girl, free spirited, and love riding through the sand in her land. She is a skilful swordsman and is handy with a gun. She works side by side with her father, working on new inventions and new way of improving the sand riders (her favorite toy). The tribe never wastes anything in their village. so some things that might be consider waste to others, are vital things for them. Sunahalā likes to use the extra spare gear that her and her father uses to create the sand riders and turn them into beautiful and unique jewelry pieces.  The woman in the Rabari tribe decore themselves in many pieces of jewelry on a daily bases (a mix of tradition and competition). She creates her jewelry as her way to keeping tradition and stand out in the tribe.

Great cosplay.  I initially thought that it was just the sword, holster pistol and slung googles that made it Steampunk.  (I noticed the peace-bonding btw)  But then I looked more closely and saw the jewellery was made out of cogs, and that really lifted it!

Thank you for sharing.

Oh, and I like the characters bio as well.
