I follow an amazing artist online, called Brian Kesinger (http://www.bkartonline.com/) who a number of months back issued a challenge to cosplayers, to dress up as his steampunk girl character Victoria, who has a pet octopus.
I decided it would be more interesting to scale this down (especially since I had already made a suitable octopus from modifying http://knitty.com/ISSUEdf14/PATTopus.php

The results are interesting - this took some time! Doll does not have human proportions or full movement and fabric sourcing can be tricky, but final result is fun!

No goggles made yet - I may attempt another one of her ensembles another time...


All hand-swen and designed by me (though the bloomers started off as a trouser pattern from the Makie doll forum, modified to make them cuter and frillier!)

I'm not familiar with the comic, but I love what you've done!
