We’re Always Tinkering With This Page

This is where we talk about Steampunk style – where do the ideas come from, and how can beginners get started? If you’d like to contribute to this page with images, discussions, or links, let us know.

A very useful collection of tutorials, good for steampunk beginners to experts, can be found at the Steampunk Fashion Guide.

Vendors of Style

Steampunked Out - Makers of Clothing, Gear, and Gadgets

Steampunked Out

Steampunked Out is one of the primo vendors for fashion and gear. Their items are well made and they WILL make you look good. It’s always a pleasure to find them at a big event, but you can always order from them online. Their styles tend toward the Wild Wild West variety, which is perfect for our event.

Lurcher Gallery - Steampunk Style

Lurcher Gallery

While Lurcher Gallery is located in Wales, they ship all over and they’ve been around a long time. Their Etsy shop is worth browsing, but they also will make items for you.

Mad.Girl Clothing

A division of Pendragon CostumesMad.Girl Clothing makes their items to order so they fit you properly. They specialize in 1890’s jackets for women (poofy shoulders!) and leather coats for men, but they have many other items.

Steampunk Fashion - Historical Emporium

Historical Emporium

A good starting place for basics, for men and women. Historical Emporium will not break the bank and will get you on track if you’re starting out.

Harlots and Angels - Steampunk clothing and leather patterns

Harlots and Angels

If you want to learn how to make your own leather items and clothing, Harlots and Angels makes great kits and PDF patterns to show you the way.

Thousand Formed - Steampunk Goggles and Masks

Thousand Formed

If you’re looking for high-end masks and goggles, and willing to pay what those kinds of things are worth, check out Thousand Formed.

Premier Victorian - Steampunk Fashion

Premier Victorian

Also an Etsy shop, Premier Victorian is very historically oriented which makes an excellent baseline for your Steampunk outfits. The majority of items are blouses, skirts, and belts for women but there are also accessories for men and women, capes, petticoats, and men’s collars.

Parasol and Hats for Steampunk Style

M’Lady’s Parasols and Accessories

Parasols and Ladies Hats, handmade at a good price. Check out M’Lady’s Parasols and Accessories.

Corsettry - Corsets for Steampunk Style

Corsettery

There are MANY corset makers out there in the world, and a lot of them live on Etsy. For steampunk, corsets do not have to be authentic in style. Prices range quite a bit too, and to be honest most very cheap corsets are going to be uncomfortable and look, well, cheap. So in this case we’ve selected a corset maker that is moderately priced yet understands the proper silhouettes. Therefore, check out Corsettery if you’re in the market.

Steampunk Style - bustles

Showbelles

Etsy is a great place to find these makers! Showbelles has some lovely dresses in different time periods, but perhaps most usefully, they have a large selection of bustles and crinolines. They are well made at a good price.

  1. Thousand Formed was literally up yesterday, and shop is down today. We hope it isn’t another COVID casualty – we’ll keep an eye on it to see if it returns.
