|Faux Leather and tulle|
|This one is a little more Victorian that Steampunk|
|This gown is breathtaking...if you have endless income to afford its ridiculous pricetag....|
This one is not a wedding dress, per se, but it could definitely work!
|It is a cosplay, but awesome.|
There are a lot of talented seamstresses and artisans out there--especially if you peruse etsy--that can create some breathtaking wedding gowns in the aesthetic of your choice. Though personally, the pricetag on these items are too much for me. Which is why I chose the beautiful dress that I want and will Steampunk it up with accessories and possible alterations (I am undecided).
So in Part 1 I looked at a few hats, a garter and some tights. I am going to explore some other pieces that I really think would augment any bridal attire.
CorsetsAnother thing to consider with the dress is if you have a two-part ensemble, what you want for your corset on top. And even with a full dress, it is sometimes possible to augment the dress with a corset.
You could try a belt/cincher corset style:
|I might use different laces, though.|
|Here is a beautiful two piece ensemble. Just promise me that you will wear your corset responsibly and not like it is shown in this picture. That's just gross looking.|
CORSET STORY has a lot of inexpensive corsets.
For example, this beauty:
|Which may actually work with my dress! Maybe. It might be wishful thinking.|
This one has even more potential!
|The gold detail might work better.|
|I was considering goggles to match the dress, but the difficulty of finding ivory goggles...Of course we could make some, but we will have to check on our time...THESE, however, are the best of both worlds.|
There is also the possibility of making our own goggles. Here are some instructions I found--and am dying to try--that walks you through a tutorial.
More white ones:
|Awesome. With actual UV protection.|
|Actually, I really like these.|
Something else to consider: gloves, glovlettes or wrist cuffs. I love ZenandCoffee on Etsy has some beautiful items.
|I like the lacing on these.|
|Cuff in ivory lace.|
|Long and Lacy|
Look for another post about wedding dress/attire in the coming weeks!
