I have finally done my first ever “Steampunk” themed photoshoot! Oh and also my first ever pirate themed shoot. Lots of firsts there! 😛
I suppose it’s probably not 100% steampunk, like most subcultures these days I imagine there are a zillion style rules to Never Be Broken most of which I’ve probably shattered in this shoot simply due to my ignorance. So consider this my apology for offending any die-hard clock-parts-and-hot-glue-enthusiasts! 😉 (That was a joke, steampunk is lovely, you can relax now).
Hexcelle graciously modeled on the hottest day ever for this shoot. She also created the simply incredible tricorn hat with a ship on it you see in the photos, as well as her earrings and eyepatch! She is multi-talented, that one! Hexcelle is wearing Gloomth’s “Sorrow” dress in black and in the short length here.
The outfit was a lot of fun to create! Hexcelle and I collaborated on combining goth, steampunk, and pirate elements into this look. We also used a beautiful choker provided by Alchemy Gothic!
The brown/natural striped socks were provided by Sock Dreams!
You can check out the entire series in our flickr album! I can’t wait to revisit this theme with Hexcelle in future (on a cooler day). 🙂
