INSPIRATION: Steampunk in film.

{Sketch by Hannah Greene }
I'll post the rest of my drawings from a steampunk figure drawing session I went to last week a little later. For now here's a collection of costumes from films that go along with that theme.

These films are actually more period-with-a-twist or fantasy than true steampunk, but that's what I really look to for inspiration when I'm in the mood for some industrial era nostalgia.

BE WARNED: Not all of these films are good (I'm looking at you, Wild Wild West). However, they're fun and definitely worth watching for the absolutely fabulous costume and production design.

I purposely did NOT include The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
No one should ever be subjected to sit through that movie, 
no matter how good it looks.
