Steampunk is all about a retro-futuristic look that combines 19th century industrial style with modern shapes and colors. Take inspiration from your favorite steampunk ensembles, mix and match Victorian-era elements and add a dash of steampunk style to your everyday clothing.
Make Your Own Steampunk Kaleidoscope Goggles
You can make your own steampunk kaleidoscope goggles by adding a kaleidoscope lens to a pair of pre-made frames. To do this, first purchase the appropriate frame from your local craft store. Then, find a kaleidoscope lens and attach it to one side of your goggles. You can do this with glue or superglue if you’re good at making sure that things are airtight before gluing them together, or you can use some tape instead if you’d like a quicker solution that won’t last as long as gluing would (but is still better than using nothing). Make sure that when you’re done attaching the lens to your goggles that there is plenty of room for someone’s eyes behind it so they can see where they’re going while wearing them!
Once both lenses have been attached properly to each other and have dried completely, take some paint and start applying it onto all sides of both parts until everything looks nice and shiny in its own unique way. If necessary (depending on what kind of wood was used), sand down any rough edges before painting so that no splinters get stuck inside anyone’s skin later on down the road!
Make Your Own Steampunk Goggles/Sunglasses
Start with a pair of sunglasses, or buy a pair of goggles. Add a brass frame and chain to the glasses, as well as a brass lens. Next, add some sort of clockwork mechanism, either battery powered or hand wound. This could be a watch movement with hands that move around or it could be something more complex like an egg timer (the kind you use in cooking). You could also just leave this out if you want to go for simplicity and elegance rather than mechanical complexity.
Add some gears, cogs and other metal bits to the glasses. You can paint these or leave them shiny metal. If you’re not sure what steampunk goggles look like, think about old-fashioned diving masks with lots of gears on them. You can also add some sort of leather strap or chain to hold the goggles on your head. This is optional, but if you want to go for a more steampunk look, do it!
Make Your Own Steampunk Outfit
The first step to making your own steampunk outfit is choosing a color scheme. You don’t want to wear all black or brown, but you also don’t want to mix and match every color of the rainbow. Stick with one or two dominant colors, including neutral shades like white and gray. If you’re going for a casual look, try pale hues such as light blue or mint green; if you’re dressing up more formally, consider darker tones like navy blue or deep purple. The best fabric for creating an outfit is something that can be worn in both hot weather and cold weather—leather pants might be ideal in this case!
If you’re not sure what style of clothes looks good on you, take some time out of your day (or night) and go window shopping at your local department stores—you’ll quickly get an idea of what kind of outfits work best with your body type without having any financial commitment involved in buying them right away! As far as patterns go: there are so many different designs available nowadays that anything goes when it comes down
Make Your Own Steampunk Jewelry
You can make your own steampunk jewelry by embellishing an existing neckpiece or necklace with gears, cogs, and other steampunk-inspired elements. A simple way to get started is by adding a pendant made of metal (like copper) that you’ve etched with designs like gears and cogs. If you want something more intricate, try crafting your own jewelry out of wood or leather—then add the finishing touches with paints, rubs, and other materials.
If you’re looking for ready-made options rather than DIY projects, there are plenty of places where you can buy steampunk jewelry online. Etsy has thousands of options ranging from big-name brands like Diesel and Orelia to small independent sellers who specialize in unique pieces just like yours!
