SteamCon 2009 featured a photo salon where I had my picture taken in the outfit I designed and crafted myself. I decided to dress as me, Pandora Wrigglesworth, for the convention.
The skirt features a full bustle and the toolbelt is hand-sewn. I used the same materials across all pieces of the outfit. The tools and guns were adapted from toy tools and guns which I painted with metallic paints.
I got the basic patterns for the bustle and skirt from Truly Victorian
and I improvised the patterns for the blouse, underbust vest, jabot, belt, and hat.
