This is the last planned outfit so far (maybe I'll do some more, but I will tell you then! ^^), Offiicer Octopus. While everyone seems to be obseesed with airships and pirates in steampunk nowadays, I'm heading to be a marine! This time I borrow an idea from a reader - Fräulein Mieze. She painted thick lines on her mad tea party skirt and bloomers, I would like to paint lead coloured stripes on my pants (and maybe disaster bloomers in case it will be 35°C again). I hope that you don't mind, otherwise I will have to rethink my bottoms!
Other than that I will sew a shoulder cover with matching overseas cap, a corset and maybe a blouse (I have something at home which I might wear if time runs out). I will paint an octopus on the back of the shoulder cover and the cap.
The corset might be in grey or black, while the other colour will be the frame. For the buttons I'm considering the skull buttons that *wollmaus* gave to me as last year's birthday present. Or maybe some simple black/silver ones.
On my feet I will wear my 30 hole boots that I already have at home.
