Top Five Steampunk Costumes for Women

Forum Steampunk Vickie Complete Costume, Brown
Getting ready to hop on the steam train and go on some Steampunk themed costume adventures? Whether it's your birthday or you are looking for the perfect Halloween costume, this makes a unique, original and creative choice of costume. There are many to choose from, so I though I would share by top five personal favorites with you all. Let's get started! If you are shopping from the UK or EU, go here for Steampunk costumes.

California Costumes
Steampunk Girl
To start us off, at the top of this post is the Steampunk Vickie costume by Forum, a beautiful ensemble of tiered skirt, interesting hooped under-skirt, ruffled collar and eye-catching sleeves. This is a great place to start if you are new to steampunk and want something imaginative but low-maintenance and instantly recognizable as Steampunk style. Each set of this costume includes the ruffled top, the brown jacket, the black corset belt and the tiered and exposed hoop skirt. Why not finish off the look with some Aviator Goggles like these?

Mystery House Steampunk Lady
Next up on the list, we have the sexy deep red-brown steampunk dress costume featured on the right. It comes with beautiful gear decorated dress, the cute hat and a pair of matching aviator machinist goggles. To give the skirt a bit of lift, you can find the petticoat the model uses here, and some absolutely perfect steampunk knee high boots can be found here.

Want something a little less elaborate, more demure, but still recognizable as a wonderful steampunk ensemble? Take a look at the very pretty Mystery House Steampunk Lady costume on the left. The jacket has removable ruffles, so you can personalize it how you like, and the skirt is just lovely. Sadly this costume doesn't come with the little feathered hat you see in the picture, but you can buy that separately here.

Steampunk Victorian Moire 2-pc Ensemble
Here's another of my recommendations for those of you out there who want to keep their steampunk costume simple or are looking for a good base to work on: the Steampunk Victorian Moire costume featured above. I love the design of the shirt - it's a very original and unique look. Each set of this costume comes with the blouse and the matching skirt.

The Original Cult Inc
Steampunk Sweetie Costume
Want to jazz things up a bit and go for colors that break the mold and stand out? Moving away from the traditional browns and black doesn't break the theme, but it will make you the most eye-catching person in the crowd! That's why I'm recommending The Original Cult's Steampunk Sweetie costume, which featured a beautiful green dress with intricate cog patterns decorating it, gorgeous lace adornment and a cute matching collar.

So there you have it, my top five favorite Steampunk costumes for women. I hope you found a costume that is perfect for your party or event, and have a lot of fun dressing up.
