Steampunk Adventurer Costume #1 by Nymla Steampunk Adventurer Costume #1 by Nymla

This is what I've been working on the last ten weeks in school! It was my final project at university where I study prop making.
I chose to make a steampunk character and make the clothing, an octopus headpiece, a brass tank and a gun.

Part of why I wanted to make it was because of the steampunk festival that will be held in Gävle, Sweden in the summer 2014.

The character is an adventurer in a world alot like ours but with 19th century technology and supernatural elements. The octopus lives on her head, she found it hurt while out on one of her adventures and she helped the octopus to survive, since then they've been friends. The brass tank is connected to the octopus via tubes and in it there's a weird green aether substance that keeps the octopus alive and well.

The jumpsuit I have sewn from scratch, the octopus is made from mainly latex and leather, the brass tank is made from mainly air-x, pvc-tubes and MDF, the gun is made from mainly MDF and glass tubes.

The photos were shot at an old power station that was built 1908 and is now a museum. An awesome setting with lots of big old steampunky machines and stuff! Located in a small village called Finnfors outside Skellefteå in Sweden.

Behind the camera was my talented friend Evelina Wallin.

Thanks for looking! ^^
