Re-imagining Characters the Steampunk Way


I have been seeing a lot of great Steampunk Cosplay lately.  I have really loved the ones that take established characters and re-imagine them in the Steampunk Style.

The main image is a great Rainbow Dash -Steampunk hybrid from cosplayer Furuko Yoiko as showcased on Steampunk Tendencies Facebook Page

Here are a few I have found:

Steampunk Batman!  He is the night.  I have seen several Batman Steampunk outfits, but I really liked this one.

Batman Steampunk DC Gotham by Gaslight Jordan Monsell Cosplay

According to the site  This is a costume by Jordan Monsell and it is based off of the DC One-shot comic Gotham by Gaslight  –where Batman takes on Jack the Ripper.  Okay. I admit, I will have to read that sometime.

Besides Batman I have seen a lot of Steampunk cosplay of the Joker, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn

Another one I loved is the Steampunk Buzz Lightyear.  This is just awesome!

According to the site The cosplayer’s name is Scott N.  And his adaptation of Buzz is really beyond…beyond awesome!

Of course you can’t go wrong with Steampunk Star Wars.  Boba Fett lends himself well to an adaptation.  You can see a great example on

Another one near and dear to my heart is the Steampunk Wonder Woman.  When I was a kid I wanted to be Wonder Woman, and I even had the Under Roos!  Here is one example of a Wonder Woman done Steam style from Molly McIsaac

I loved this one because she has a great coat and the pants.

As a Whovian  I have to include a great Steampunk Doctor Who character.  How about a Cyberman.   From Fanboy Fashion  (originally from according to the image)  I found this great image of a fantastic costume.  They didn’t list the cosplayer’s name, but great job!!
