Steampunk - Topping It Off

One of the most important features of a Steampunk costume is what's worn on the head. A top hat, leather flight helmet, curved bowler, straw boater, Arctic flap hat, pith helmet, Sherlock Holmes-style deerstalker, pirates bandana, wool newsboy cap or embellished tam. Each of these is the height of Victorian style. The list for Steampunk headwear doesn't end with what was stylish 150 years ago, however, nor is it relegated to only hats. Many Steampunk costume experts top themselves off with braids, feathers, tubing, wire, or yarn to add a bit of Max Max Beyond Thunderdome punk style to the mix.
