Victorian Dress

 

– For those who are good with a needle and thread, try a home-sewn Victorian dress! It might seem like a lot of work, but you won’t just end up with a costume- but with an excellent piece of formal wear.

Filigree Necklace – Steampunk accessories are what really help to distinguish it as alternate history from anachronism. Finally make good use of old pocket watches and doorless keys!
