Steampunk Abe Lincoln Costume by StudioCreations Steampunk Abe Lincoln Costume by StudioCreations
This is a Steampunk-inspired costume I made for the Dragon*Con sci-fi/fantasy convention held in Atlanta, GA in 2008. The model wearing the costume is my brother-in-law Daniel.

Construction time was about 35 hours, maybe a little more.

It was based on Herrenmedia's drawing, seen here.

Thanks for the compliments on my Steampunk Abe lincoln Copstume.  Thanks goes to herrenMedia who came up with the original artwork that I based the costume off of.  I thought the same thing when I saw his art... "No gears??? YES!!!!!"

Alternate History shows that Steampunk John Wilkes Booth still made it past the body guards and committed his foul deed, but Steampunk Lincoln had technology on his side at the operating table and recovered with a vengeance. SPL and Steampunk Queen Victoria went on rampage against evil everywhere after that.

This may seem like a very strange question, but I would like to ask something of Studio Creations. I happen to be making a movie based off the original Steampunk Lincoln drawing, and was wondering if you could replicate the amazing costume produced here and possibly send it to us here in Champaign, IL. We will pay you for you work, and the shipping and handling costs. I have absolutely no clue if this is the right thing to ask of esteemed people such as yourself, so please forgive me.

Best Wishes, Naveed.

Ultimately the character 'Steampunk Lincoln' and his signature look are owned by HerrenMedia, the original artist who drew the picture that I based this costume on. Herrenmedia is here on Deviantart, give him a buzz and see if he is interested in allowing you to use his intellectual property, and then pop back over here to see if I am available for commission work.

Oh, thank you so much. It was a project that was really fun to create. Email HerrenMedia and let him know you like the character. He created Steampunk Abe Lincoln, I just made the costume. :)
