Steampunk costumes for women are becoming very popular. Explaining what steampunk is though is a little harder. Generally when it comes to steampunk costumes you take a little of the Victorian (the ‘steam’ aspect) and shake it up (the ‘punk aspect’).
What this means is that there’s lots of options when it comes to steampunk fashions. Many people who are intrigued by Steampunk like to create their own costumes and part of the fun can be finding all the different elements and then pulling together the perfect Steampunk outfit.
On this page I’m just going to showcase a couple of ready to wear Steampunk outfits for women who are in a hurry.
Long Skirted Ladies Steampunk Costume
The first one I want to feature is this one –
The skirt on this steampunk costume makes me think of more of an Edwardian silhouette than a Victorian one, but I really love the corset detailing and the look of the material definitely embraces the Victorian era.
The corset style top which embraces the punk element of steampunk beautifully is simply gorgeous the brocade style of fabric used also gives a nod to the Victorian era.
Another Ready to Wear Steampunk Costume for Women
The next steampunk costume for woman that I want to showcase is this one –
I think of this costume as a take on sexy steampunk! As well as the dress, which is definitely too short for any self respecting Victorian lady, this costume includes the fun hat. This hat is a lovely accessory for any steampunker. The costume also includes the glovettes that the model is wearing.
A word of warning before you delve into a steampunk costume however, many people become addicted to steampunk which means you could end up creating your very own costume from scratch next time! There are some lovely elements that go towards the perfect steampunk costume as well as a hoard of different accessories that will breathe life into it.
