Hallowe'en '08—Steampunk Plague Doctor

I had a lot of fun with my costume this year. It came out pretty badass, and as one guy said after seeing me, "I'm soooo glad I'm not on shrooms right now."

Everything but the mask I already had lying around, accumulated around Toronto thrift stores and various other places. What I can remember:

Top Hat— Courage My Love, $75 (high school graduation present to myself)
Goggles— Army Surplus, $40
Beaked Mask— Malabar, $15
Cane— somewhere in Chinatown, $3
Tailcoat— Black Market, $10 (what a find!)
Black w/ Red Pinstripe Waistcoat— H&M, $15
Tie— Exile, $3
Black w/ White Pinstripe Dress shirt— Hot Topic, $10
Turtleneck— H&M, $15 (all about the layering)
Skinny Grey Jeans— H&M, $30 (not period by any means, but I wanted to look really distorted—hence, big hat, wide shoulders, skinny legs. plus, the grey is nice.)
Shoes— Moores, $40


Now comes the hard part: resisting the temptation to dress like this every day.
