Nerfpunk!

Postby gretagretchen » Thu Sep 20, 2012 9:40 pm

Here is my latest -- a nerfpunk gown!

Nerfpunk sprung from a joke about how everyone mods nerf guns to make steampunk weapons and how people seem to think the only color steampunk can be is brown. Why mod your gun? Make an outfit to match it instead!

Some friends of mine started wearing Nerfpunk outfits a couple of years ago at Dragon*Con but this is the first year I joined in.

I made the NF dinner bodice with a modified neckline and vest front and a NF trained fantail skirt. The fabrics are kind of awesomely hideous -- that's an orange and yellow woodgrain print with small red stripes. Both fabrics came from a quilting line called Noah's Ark -- which leads me to believe they were designed for kids. I think a quilt made out of these fabrics might keep them up instead!

Anyway -- I'm thrilled with how this turned out. It's my new favorite!

That orange is vivid! I see toes peeking out; foam sole flip-flops to carry the theme into footwear?

Altogether marvelous! 8)

in the UK I was wearing black sandals as I tight on luggage space but at Dragon*Con I wore orange sandals that matched.
