Steampunk Airship Mechanic by mbielaczyc Steampunk Airship Mechanic by mbielaczyc
This is the beginning of my costume for this years Dragoncon. It is going to be a Airship Mechanic aboard the SS Aradan.

Me and the others at Aradani Studios came up with an idea that the humans when trying out a ship to jump through time, actually jumped into the middle of the city of Alvaron, a steampunk era fey city. So the elves, orcs, ogres, dwarves and gnomes now trade regularly with the humans by jumping through the "Never".

The SS Aradan is an elvish run ship that is a "Riftjumper" or an airship that travels back and forth between the lands.

My character is a half faun, half elf mechanic who keeps the engines running.

This is just the basic under costume. I am working on some props including a fancy airtank/mask combo as well as some leather work.

I really love your steampunk costume! I was thinking on making a costume like that, with a few modifications.

Really cool costume! Any advice to someone just starting out? I hope to have a steampunk airship pilot costume soon, but any advice you might have would be great! You look like a pro!

But when they want to they do a hell of a job. I guess it depends on the ship and how interested they are ;)

If I can manage to get there I'll come down and see you. I've decided my costume won't be ready by then though so I won't be the one with the gears and goggles.

If the Aradan doesn't work out, the ladies on the S.M.S. Zepherus are always in need of a good-loo.... competent mechanic.
