Best response ever Charon.  God I love me some jarines.

Different question, how did you get the fluffy neck thing to stand up without bunching?  Is their a wire in it to keep its shape or did you stuff it with cotton balls or something?

And Charon, I couldn't wear the Molly without a scarf between my thoat guard and me, use to tear my neck to shreds.  My supply officers advice to me was to stop working out as much and maybe my neck wouldn't be so thick.  I think my pt coordinator almost lost his god damn mind when I jokingly told him about it.

Stop working out! Haha, that supply officer's trying to get you killed!
Especially with that version of the flak, a lot of us used shemaghs and other things to keep that spacer. I too suffer from "Giant goddamn neck" syndrome, and know your pain when it comes to that throat pro. Luckily, nowadays, everyone's using the plate carrier, which doesn't actually include neck pro. Kinda luckily, anyway. I mean, we all knew that thing wasn't going to stop a round anyway.

Quick project update: I'm putting together the shoulder armor from "The Way", the costume designed by Chris Piron. Should have most of the outfit done shortly, but I'm trading out the blindfold for an S-10 gas mask and tricorn cover.

I figured you might like to see some progress on this! Hopefully the rest of it will come together pretty quickly, now that I have my tools and work has settled down.

Christ those are some awesome costumes. It's nice to see people dressed up Steampunk-ish, instead of like Anime characters, for a change!


One question, why does nobody seem to have goggles? Just buy some old blowtorch goggles and add a leather strap over it or something, I imagine it would look quite amazing.

So far, everyone's done full costumes from the game. The ones that have been done already don't really have goggles. I can't remember if any of them do, originally.

Old welding goggles can be surprisingly hard to come across, the cheapest and easiest way I have seen steampunk googles done is actually by painting swimming goggles (no joke).

My wife found a pair of steam punk goggles at a convention. They consisted of a pair of threaded pipe fittings on a leather strap. They are very uncomfortable and look awful when put over my eyes. A friend of mine found some 1940's RAF goggles at an army surplus store, but I think I would have an easier time getting him to part with his left hand than to part with those.

Bodice is finally finished; added straps, secured the back, and added cogs. The arm warmers are presenting a bit more trouble than expected. Hopefully I'll have at least one done in the next week or so.

It doesn't fit my dress form very well.

I went to the Gaslight Gathering, a small Steampunk Convention in San Diego, and got my picture taken. Here is a link to the convention photographer's gallery:

Many of their costumes put mine to shame. If any of you are in Southern California (San Dego) in early May next year I recommend paying a visit to: http://gaslightgathering.org/

That's good stuff, Hamster! The Gaslamp Quarter seems like a great place for steampunk photos.
