A Steampunk Halloween

After such a long time loving Steampunk style I've finally decided to go ahead and attempt to make my own steampunk costume. I've never really done clothing before so it should be interesting. These are some of the patterns that have inspired me.

I wouldn't use the exact colors (or even the exact shape) but I was thinking a walking suit/blouse/skirt/jacket combo in a nice navy grey. Or blood red. Haven't decided yet.

and the hat. you can't forget the hat. I found this one on ebay and while I can't afford to buy it it has given me inspiration. I think one of the local Halloween stores will probably carry top hats in which then I can dress up with peacock feathers, ect. ect.
