In what is going to be an on-going series of tips, ideas, and merchants picked up while attending A-Kon, I’d like to introduce you all to Threadbanger, a do it yourself fashion and style website.
This is yet another great resource for constructing your own Steampunk wardrobe. It’s a very well built community of do-it-yourselfers who are dedicated to teaching others how to make and mod your own clothing. There are a TON of Steampunk projects one can indulge in, from goggles and spats to corsets. Personally, I prefer to buy a corset from someone who really knows what they are doing rather than make that particular article of clothing myself, but there certainly are tutorials at your disposal should you wish to undertake the project.
I’m in the process of gathering all of the required media for my post on A-Kon. It may be a while as I am working late three days this week, as well as the weekend (ugh, talk about welcome back to real life, Audelia). While all of the pieces of what I promise will be an exciting blog post are falling in to place, I’ll be highlighting some of the merchants I ran into who were running booths at the Kon.
