Multiculturalism for Steampunk is starting up a weekly art challenge, and it looks promising. SO EXCITED. I’ve had a bunch of ideas for non-Western steampunk outfits floating around in my head, and it’s nice actually having a weekly deadline to motivate me to finish some of them.
This is pretty subtle in its steampunkery (read: no extranneous metal bits), but I was just trying to bring in a few western/Victorian elements to traditional Indian clothing- legomuttoned sleeves, the double breasted, collared choli, and adapting the churidar into buttoned spats.
…Also a sweet hat.
Leave it to Ree (Leave it to Reever? No?) to reblog something awesome. And oh god a South and Western Asian take on steampunk would make my year, Let alone something from other countries. For real, I only watch the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Movie for Captain Nemo and his badass ship. (plus his master sword combo) [OH GOD African Tribal Steampunk. Must draw!]

I am neither an artist or a writer but I think this project is really interesting! Steampunk AND fantasy? These are two of my favourite things!
