Remaking Skirts into Halloween Costumes

A couple years ago I made this steampunk creation out of two skirts.

I ripped apart two skirts and turned them into a Victorian Inspired overskirt and a front panel ruffle bustle. But one thing I didn't like is that the front panel was a lot shorter than the overskirt so I had to wear another skirt underneath.

Awhile back I found another skirt that I could use for a front panel. 
So off to ripping and recreating I went.

The first costume was paired with a goldish bolero jacket. 

Cute but not exactly the look I wanted. Very gold and good witch. Which was fine my theme was simple "magick".

The new creation is below.

I LOVE it. 

I wanted more of a steampunk look. And I got it.

I combined the bronze skirt with a black and brown striped corset, brown top and black lace bolero jacket. 

Now that's a steampunk look. I can't wait to add more steampunk accessories in the future.

The two bronze skirts look so much better than the bronze and gold and it goes all the way to the floor. I also switched to buttons to hold them together this time instead of snaps. Last time the snaps kept popping open. 

Good thing I was wearing another skirt underneath because at one point the entire thing came off LOL

With the buttons I had no oops or problems with the skirt coming undone.
