Fancy Dress Theme and Inspiration Thread




It’s going to take longer than anticipated :roll_eyes:

BUT I will be working on it all weekend while @corders is spending a month working nights at Waterloo, away in his own little hotel room and everything.


Took a few snaps for inspiration at a local steampunk festival! how convenient :smirk::roll_eyes:


A few items I have at the mo along with my laser tag guns , I’ve even taken the laser out of my circular saw lol to go in one goggle :grin:


I have NOTHING! I really need to pull my finger out and do mine and Daves outfits…;/


That steampunk festival looks like Bioshock came to life!


An evenings work got me a couple bits almost complete


@Ricky_Ricardo that’s cool as!! Big respect :smiley:
I’ve just found two cool AF feathers on evening walks with pupper… do I need to find him an outfit too? :joy:


Strap a gun and goggles on him!


Shouldn’t that be doggles ?



a little touching up needed but almost done with these.


I see your pew pew and raise you retro style…

There’s also these… but I think they’re too heavy… and require a licence :joy: ##onlyinbirmingham


Haha yes I did consider the air rifle route but it’s only fun if you have pellets with you which bring up a bunch of other problems :sweat_smile:


Bin doing bits tonight , sky remote and circular saw butchered for laser and battery comp lol , need a jacket then add cigs etc to that.


. Few bits to finish this!


Well… my extra steampunkery bits haven’t arrived yet… they only have three more days then it will be too late :disappointed_relieved: so I have an outfit… not many accessories… anyone have any ideas?


I’ve got same problem. No solution.


Ignore the gauntlet itself, but the rest is all made from scrap bits.

Dig out those old foot pumps, and grease guns, some old belts or dog collars, and buy some bronze paint :slight_smile:


Cardboard, duct tape, some faux leather, super glue, and an old bag strap.
