Made for the Steampunk Asylum held every year in Lincoln.

Made from heavy grade leather, with brass and copper details. Articulation provided by buckles in the required places.

Time taken? About four weeks.  It took so long and would cost so much to make that I’ve never put one on sale. Something like this would be a custom job only, and even then it’d have to be someone living nearby due to the amount of resizing and measurements required.

Steampunk Hoopskirt made from leather and brass.

hoops!

I made this after my wife requested one for a steampunk party. I had no idea how to go about it at the start, so I learned as I went. In the end I made the hoops out of the leather first and used the brass to give structure, and attached it all to a leather belt. This took several days of work and quite a lot of leather and brass.

This is a one-off, one of a kind design, but similar pieces made to order would be something I would be OK with doing. Leave a message in the comments if it’s something you’d like to see.
