Steampunk Grand Pauldron

The Alt.Kilt SteamShop had the great pleasure of working with Katana Design Studio on this project for a client.

This pauldron is made from 22ga mild steel with a sprayed and brushed powder-coat finish with a few customer requested features: bottle opener, speaker system, lighting (EL ground effects under the arm plates) and distressing. It can be worn attached to the bandoleer as shown, or solo.

Detail shots of the pauldron and it being worn with a complete set of our gear - the bandoleer and a custom gun holster follows.

So there is this cool steampunk band out it Seattle that many of you have heard of... Abney Park. Their music rocks and is some of the best eclectic punk out there. They sell a lot of different things on their website - including CD's, artwork and of course clothes. Now, I am pleased to announce, they are also offering a custom made special edition kilt from Alt.Kilt - The Airship Combat Kilt.

This kilt is available in three colors: Oxidation orange(as shown), Ship Timber brown and Oil leak black. It features rotary style pocket clasps, brass rivets and buttons, side cargo pockets and back pockets. It is a steal of a deal at only $150.

Available only through the Abney Park website.

Long Alt.Skirt - Black/Red Silk with Alternation Pleats

Rough new photos - shown with and without snaps - $150.

I just finished this one and have to find a better way to photograph it. The silk is black on one side and red on the other. When I use the flash, it shows a reddish tint on the fabric that isn't normally there. The inside of each pleat is a deep red. The skirt is made of box pleats - unlike the Alt.Kilt and other Alt.Skirt, both of which are knife pleats. The box pleat allows for the color change and adds a depth to the skirt.

I am very pleased with it. Once I add the backs of the snaps (it got a little to late to be pounding with hammers in my apartment), I will take better photos and add the style to the shop.
Available in all fabrics - twill, denim, silk, wool and cotton - and colors. Standard price is $125 with an upgrade for silk and wool.

Fabric Sample Boards

Wanna touch it first? Thanks to [ profile] mmpantsless's inquiry... my brain was jump started into this idea. One of the biggest worries about buying on the web is the ability to touch and feel what you are getting. So here it is. If you send me your address, I will drop a fabric sample card in the mail to you for free! Specific fabrics can be included - I will swatch shop patterns you are looking for or textures you desire or else, I can send a standard "here is what I can offer" card to you.

Free of charge and no obligation (and just added to the website options page!)

*As usual on Alt.Kilt posts - all comments are screened.

Mini-Kilt. Black Twill with silver stitching.

Limited Time Offer: $75

I decided it was time for something sexy! Technically, these are not going into production till after Convergence but I could easily be convinced to turn out 1 or 2 of them to be delivered in person at the con. Else... I am now taking orders for the Mini. Same fabrics as usual, same price no matter which one (at this time). Available with contrasting thread stitches (as seen above). Also, small side cargo pockets are also available for an extra $10.

Payment can be paypal-ed to or email me to discuss.

I apologize for the photo quality... I had to set my timer and jump on a chair and therefore it is a bit wonky! I need to get more photos taken with [ profile] pkstudios so these things look better.

Corset and Alt.Kilt Opening Sale

Here is the deal... put down a 50% deposit on an item and get a discounted price! Choose from fabric I have on hand - images below - or I will go out to get the color you are wanting. You want a Hello Kitty corset? You got it. You want a camouflage Alt.Kilt? You want a Batman corset or one with fireworks? You got it... I can shop for the fabric and send swatches or digital images for approval before I get started. This is custom! The deposit will hold your spot in line and I will make items in the order they come in - excluding any rush orders of which the time line can be discussed in private). Most places ask for payment in full in advance but I think that this is actually a more practical way to do it. The corset styles have multiple options that can be discussed once the order is placed - the material cost does not differ within the category. The time line is 4-8 weeks (with the ability to put a rush on the order). Don't need it that soon? Willing to wait 8-12 weeks? Take 20% off the cost and note the order.

Payment can be made via Paypal: or comment here with an email address that I can send you my snail mail address (and I'll consider the comment to be your place maker). Comments are screen on this post. Final payment will be due when completed and before I mail it out or upon hand delivery. Everything will be shipped with Delivery Confirmation and Insurance (on the house!) After I receive your order I will be sending you an email requesting all the information I will need. If you are local and need measurements taken - I will work to schedule that with you at your convenience.
