Corsets and Underpinnings for Outer and UnderwearIn honor of Costumery week in the Artisan Crafts gallery here on DeviantArt, this article highlights the stunning array of corset creations, helpful tutorials, and groups where DA's corset makers gather.Corsets and Underpinnings for Outer and Underwear by sidneyeileen
The corset. Whether it's overbust or underbust, curvy or straight, fancy or plain, historical or completely modern, lightly or heavily boned, it alters the fashion silhouette of the wearer, often providing a dramatically different shape from any that could be achieved without the use of a corset.
In historic fashion, the corset and related underpinnings are an essential part of the costume's foundation. Without a properly fitted corset and underpinnings, even the most beautifully and accurately constructed costume will look ill-fitting, sloppy, and shabby, making it very difficult to appreciate the time and workmanship that went into the outer part of the costume.
For modern cosplay and fantasy, the corset is a non-essential but delightful option in the costuming
Costumery Week Special - SteampunkAs part of the Costumery Week to highlight this amazing Artisan Crafts gallery, I am posting themed interview specials every day during this week. I am also posting features and specials as part of this week, check them all out here.Costumery Week Special - Steampunk by MyntKat
Today's Special is all about Steampunk Costumes and Props.
What is Steampunk?
Steampunk is a science fiction / fantasy genre which focuses around the idea of a world which widely uses steam power and is often set in the 19th century or Victorian times or even in a "paralell universe" where electricity was never invented. Technology is very prominent in steampunk and is either based on modern technology adapted to the steam energy concept or fictional technology based on the ideas of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne.
Steampunk costumery consists of costumes and accessories/props. There is also steampunk jewelry and furniture

|These are some of my favorite artworks made by other deviants!|
Born and raised in Germany, Bianca moved to Canada in 2007. She's been happily living and crafting in Vancouver for the past few years until late 2013, when she decided to make the move back across the pond to settle in London, England for a while. She will be arriving in London in March 2014.|
Generally she likes to keep busy with artisan crafts but also enjoys digital and traditional arts whenever she finds the time and place to experiment.
Here on deviantART Bianca/MyntKat focuses mostly on Artisan Crafts. She has volunteered as a Gallery Moderator for the Artisan Crafts galleries in the past and hosted several Artisan Crafts Weeks (educational weeks dedicated to specific areas/techniques with interview, features, specials and more) as well as a few contests during her volunteer term.
