Stunning Stained Glass-Steampunk Costume

Some costumes turn around and make you do a double take, and this is one of them. Paige Gardner wore this original costume, dubbed Abbey, at Dragon Con last year. I wish I would have spotted the creation in person, but if I did, I probably would have blocked traffic while I took as many photos as I could and talked to her about the build. It’s simply gorgeous.

The Abbey costume was inspired by Warhammer 40K Adeptus Ministorum and features elements influenced by art nouveau. Gardner repurposes items she’s salvaged from places like thrift stores and turns them into incredible costumes. She hopes her methods encourage others who want to make costumes since she executes her outfits with limited resources. This project started with a stack of thrift store coloring books. She explains:

“…this costume evolved with my traditional tool kit of thrift store elements, no-sew shortcuts… tiny investment but lots of persistence. It’s worth noting that I actually measured some things for this project (with a real measuring tape), which I consider a significant leap forward on my “things I can do” list.”
