A Little Bit of Steampunk – Halloween 2017

Standard

Y’all, I haven’t blogged in almost 2 years.But it’s Halloweentime, so Imma put up some pics. This year we decided to go steampunk. If you don’t know what steampunk is {I’ve learned a lot of people don’t know what steampunk is}, think Victorian era fashion meets utility and gadgetry. Or something like that. There’s probably a wikipedia page if you want to know more.

So we started with just “steampunk” and then Boy Numero Dos wanted to be a chemist, and then we all ended up with some kind of a caricature to draw inspiration from for our costumes. So here we are, in all our gears and glory {trying out the slideshow feature for the first time}.

We had a lot of fun {and put in a lot of time} coming up with these costumes! They look simple but all of the little details really add up. Steampunk might end up being one of our favorite costume themes. We’re trying to figure out where else we can wear them because it’s so much fun! Do you do couple/family/group costumes for Halloween? What has been your favorite? Share in the comments!
