Steampunk vs. Renaissance Costumes
There is so much to the Steampunk Costume
. While the dress may seem like your typical Renaissance faire costume, there are several key elements that define it. While both share a fitted bodice, chemise tops with short to long sleeves, and voluminous skirts, Steampunk costumes often incorporate darker sets of clothing or use many brass and copper tones, like in the Ornate Sophistication Steampunk Bodice
set. This full length skirt and top set has the traditional cut of Renaissance garb but also brings a dark black, brassy brown and cream paneled skirt and matching bodice with an ornate copper and brass design.
The small touches are what makes a Steampunk Costume its own, from the choice of brass buckles to dark metallic shades of brown and black. The costume as a whole is very versatile - with just the slightest alterations you can change the entire tone of your Steampunk costume. Youíre never left with the same look! If you were a nobleperson for your first Renaissance faire, all you need is to add a pair of monocles or gadgetry to your clothing to become a scientist!
