For the last couple of years, i have wanted to cosplay as Steampunk Princess Leia. Well this year for Megacon, I finally made it happen!
I love the steampunk look and we all know i love Star Wars! So I mashed them up! And we all know i love a good mash up!
I must admit, i didn't get all the pieces for the costume done in time. I am a procrastinator and thought i had all the time in the world. Next think you know, it's the week of and i still don't have the fabric bought for my holster. I also hadn't painted my gun yet either! So off to Joann's I go to buy everything. It's Monday when i went shopping and Megacon starts on Thursday. Sure all the time in the world...
So i start to spray paint the gun and i get a little over zealous with the paint. I forget to leave the orange tip and i painted so much that it clumped up and actually ate through the plastic of the gun. So i bought another gun on Amazon and it wasn't going to be delivered until Friday.
Well that made my decision on what day i'm dressing up - Saturday. Saturday morning, i was less zealous with the spray paint and the gun was ready in 10 minutes.
Back to the holster making, well... that didn't happen. It was busy week last week - work, kid, life. So i made the decision to hold off on making the holster. Steampunk Leia is a cosplay I plan to do a lot, and I will be adding to the costume as I go. Next time Steampunk Leia comes out, she'll have a holster.
Here's some pics of my costume! I had so much fun walking around Megacon as Steampunk Leia! I can't wait to cosplay again!
Hair and make up done!
There was no way i could put the corset on myself - so i had to come to Megacon with a flower shirt on! haha! I call this Hawaiian Steampunk Leia!
And here's the final look
