DIY Steampunk Inspiration by batman-n-bananas at Deviantart

DIY Sreampunk Inspiration: Steampunk Portal Boots by batman-n-bananas at DeviantArt here. Also check out her Steampunk Satchel, Wallets, and Aperture Steampunk Handheld Portal Device – AMAZING. First seen at EPBOT here. How she did it:

“These started as two pairs of shoes, one cheap pair of black pleather boots and an old pair of canvas shoes. The heel ‘spring’ is actually plastic tubing as I could screw this straight into the heel to secure it firmly (plus a lot more sensible to walk in).”

DIY Hot Air Balloon Costume by Rook No. 17

DIY Hot Air Balloon Costume. Cutest Halloween costume ever and actually doable. Tutorial (and link to find the balloons) at  Rook No, 17 here.

truebluemeandyou: Skully Tee. For those of you who need a last minute costume!

DIY Cut Out Skully Tee (or Halloween Costume that could go horribly wrong). Tutorial from  Cut Out and Keep here. The picture above is a version of this project. The original is a skull cut out on the back of the Tee. MardyBum’s Tee (pictured above) is posted here - and understandably has generated lots of comments about it being a “different type of shirt” if it had been cut higher. So I guess it depends what kind of costume or skull shirt you want it to be!
