1.- Ardette Bombaerts by Steampunk-Girl 1.- Ardette Bombaerts by Steampunk-Girl
First piece of the Steampunk project. After gathering enough visual reference, courage and caffeine, I started with these retro-verisons of the characters from the TF2 rp in Tegakie. So far they're going to be grey-scaled sketches, as they're quicker for me to do and you can still be able to spot the details and stuff...

(notes)
RED Spy: Ardette Bombaerts
I mixed a few concepts here. Even if she doesn't pretent to, Ardette is a very fashinable character without being superficial. Even if her clothes were going to be beautiful, they still had to be wearable and good for her purposes. That's why I didn't give her full trousers in the first place: she's still a lady in some kind of XIXth cent like place and she has to "melt" in the crowd of fasionable gents and ladies. Still her long skirt can be easily opened at the sides to gainmobility and allow her to reach for her knife and hidden spy-ish stuff (legs are protected with leather "stokings", hard and flexible enough to run and jump). She's holding a (badly drawn) Colt gun and her pocket mirror. Also, I remembered the fact she's actually a widow! so I added the typical spotted veil to her hat.
Comments and suggestions will be rewarded with clockgears and cookies :)

Enjoy!

I was wondering if I could use the skirt as reference to the one I actually plan to make for myself?

Hey !
I love it soooo much that I'm going to make a cosplay of it !
(I'm not joking, it's for a very special weeding)
Any preference for the colors ? Any specific detail that I must absolutely respect ?
Because I'll dedicate the pictures to you ^^

Damn! I think I have a note from you asking the same thing!
Think about colors like red, dark pink, creamy white... anything related to red (she's a spy from RED team, hurr)

I don't really have a more detailed view of the costume. I have a view of the character's "undergarments", hope it can give you a feeling and more ideas for details! ;) [link]

I lurrrrrrrrrrrv steampunk. There's something about how it's classy, yet so gritty. Also, even the petite girls I see in it have at least SOME meat on their bodies.

Absolutely! I think the main part we're trying to use as inspiration is the skirt, which is just wicked cool. But the rest of it is already very much along the lines of what we were already planning for her.
