As said elsewhere, I have started a second Steampunk costume, given that I consider Torvald Faust virtually finished and I recently purchased a very fine rifle of a (fellow) Dutch artist, Ed Vieveen. His rifle, now mine, fits with a few costumes I have, but given the fine-ness of said rifle, I figured it deserved a costume in and off itself, hence, Eustace Hargrave, British Royal Huntsman.

The rifle at the bottom of all this, looks as follows:




Ed makes really crazy things from scratch, but also on base of replicas and such, as you can see. And as cool as it is, I still feel there's room for improvement.

One, where the hammer used to be:


He replaced it, as one can see, but the new hammer is rather...limp. I will be replacing it once more Wink

Two, at various places he used Philips screws, such as here:



Those will be replaced as well.

Lastly, I feel the instruments and other aiming devices could use a little tweaking:



That being said, it is still a very, very fine base to work from and as soon as I am able, I will show the actual clothes I have got in mind for this costume. Sorry for going a little Tactile on you all, but I feel it is all part of a costume Smiley

I quite agree, else I would not have bought it Wink

A big stride forward should come soon-ish. I have a lot more costume pieces since I started Torvald Faust, and I am thinking of using a lot of things I have already.

It is a long day since I have seen such a functional looking weapon, truly a work of art. Some of the armaments here look a bit too Flash Gordon/future retro for my taste

My dear Mr Faust,

A splendid looking armament indeed and I look forward to seeing your 'enhanced' version in due course.  And the outfit to accompany it?  I am intrigued sir.

Best of luck.

Fair skies!

Thanks, gentlemen Smiley Before I can showcase the 'prototype costume', I need to procure some help and that is hard nowadays...

Time for a little revival; the doctor is in!

Meet Doctor Charles Yersin, British Royal Apothecary:


The Black Death returned to Europe in the 16th century. This time around, the British Empire resorted to more extreme measures to quell the plague. Their solution were the Royal Apothecaries.


Part doctor, part sniper, and according to some, wholy madmen, they were to cull the ammount of plague victims, all the while searching for their 'holy grail'; Patient Zero.


My plans are largely the same, but when I finished that plague doc mask, the pieces started to gell with each other a whole lot better Grin
