Steampunk Abe Lincoln Costume

This is a Steampunk-inspired costume I made for the Dragon*Con sci-fi/fantasy convention held in Atlanta, GA in 2008. The model wearing the costume is my brother-in-law Daniel.

Construction time was about 35 hours, maybe a little more.

It was based on Herrenmedia's drawing, seen here.

Thanks for the compliments on my Steampunk Abe lincoln Copstume.  Thanks goes to herrenMedia who came up with the original artwork that I based the costume off of.  I thought the same thing when I saw his art... "No gears??? YES!!!!!"
