Lady Vadore

Lady VadoreOh. Wow.

Jen of EPBOT decided to create a female steampunk Darth Vader costume, because why not. She’s been documenting her progress in stages, detailing her adventures in turning a flashlight into a lightsaber, not to mention the epic hackery that turned a plastic Vader mask into this steampunk confection.

She’s finally finished, and has revealed the entire costume. There are dozens of splendid little details, like a belt buckle made from a vintage compact (which doubles as a business card holder), and feathered epaulets.

Most of the costume was made from thrifted bits, and her build notes are full of great ideas for adding a steampunk vibe to plain articles of clothing. The whole thing is a fantastic source of inspiration; check it out!

    Darth Vader is Goth, hence the Dark Side…Boba Fett and C3P0 are steampunk. =p

    Oh. My. Gods. This is amazing. I had the opportunity to refine my steampunk costume recently and I’ve lots of work to do, but this is so damned inspiring!!!
