Ganei Tikvah, Is...
My boyfriend and I have really fell in love with the artistry and beauty in Steampunk. This year, we decided we would go all out in full Steampunk gear…. =)
He, always fasicnated by how things work and such, decided to be a tinkering pilot wanna-be. We designed his clothes and I sewed everything – pants, shirt, vest, bomber hat and goggles (also used metal parts from the inside of a broken fan!). He is fully equiped with lots of pockets for all his tools, a pleather wrist band holding his compass and other relevant accessories.
The wings and harness were designed by him and he did the wood work and I sewed the fabric for the wings. Harness 100% pleather. No animals were harmed in the making of this costume!
Photos were taken by a friend of ours, Ilan Rosen, photographer.
Pleather – lots of it!
Cotton blends and such.
