two packages arrived today

BOTH head pieces for my steampunk costume arrived today. The goggles are not as small and delicate as they look in the pictures. They are big and overpower me a bit. Also one pearl and one filigree fell off when I handled them. I glue gunned those puppies back on. I think they are a bit much for my little head but would look good secured to a top hat instead. Pyramid Collection has a steampunk top hat for only $25 but it is on back order and won't be available for a few weeks:




The belly dancer head pieces with the coins and flower and feather matches the skirt pretty well and definitely is the crowning bit of my costume and screams to the world: "I'm not just steampunk, I'm BELLY DANCE steampunk." No mistake about it now.

I find it a bit sad and ironic that I spent $100 total on head pieces that I probably won't get to wear to steamcon so I can attend the workshop instead. But if I opt out of steamcon for the weekend long workshop, I can still wear my steampunk costume to steampunk night at the Vogue and at the Steampunk Ball in December.
