Steampunk fairy queen - try-out by Firefly182
Steampunk fairy queen - try-out
This weekend (25 & 26 April) I'm off to parade on the Elf Fantasy Fair aka Elfia in The Netherlands. Of course I have to try out my costume to spot any flaws that I can still fix.

So, here is my steampunk fairy queen outfit (a rush job, I admit). I made everything myself except for the shoes and stockings. From the skirts, waist reduction corset from purple taffeta, leather bracer with LED lights, intricate bead neck piece, fairy wings, hand-dyed and styled wig and the leather crown: it's all me :)

I will add some beads or sparkles to the stockings to make it a bit more interesting to look at. The bottom part is a bit plain now... Also: heavier make-up and purple cording in the corset :)

Hey there reader of my bio. I am Rachel, living in IJmuiden - The Netherlands. My favourite thing is creating costumes that catches the attention. The bigger the better I say! Whether it's fantasy or historical, I love being creative and let my mind do things for me.

Apart from costuming I also like modelling as a hobby. So check out my online portfolio at www.racheldekooker.nl and let me know what you think :)

Hey - thank you so much for the fave! Really like your work too, especially those wings.
What did you make them out of?

Hi there! Thank you very much :) The wings you are referring to are made from cellophane and epoxy resin. Not recommended for the long run though ;-)

Hey you! It was nice to see you indeed :) I'm also very curious about the bike. I mean: it's in the shed but it's still green and white :P
