Your gun has been primed and painted and is looking pretty good. But we don’t want a good looking gun! This is steampunk. We want something that looks like it’s been around the block a few times.

So I hear you want to make a steampunk weapon! You’ve come to the right place. It’s really not very difficult at all, even if you have never done it before. Better yet, you can do it for quite cheap.

But I’m going to take you through some steps to show some basics of sewing your own costume.
