    That was a very hard choice. Wanted to vote for the Princess, and the Wizard of Oz as well.

    All are gorgeous but that Steampunk with leather is quite amazing.

    All the costumes are brilliant but the Steampunk Action Bustle is amazing and for me has to be the winner. The design would be difficult enough in normal fabric but in leather I cannot even begin to imagine how difficult it was to put together. The person who made that outfit obviously has great skill.

    All the costumes are well made with a wonderful imagination and result in a difficult vote on my part. I had to choose Steampunk Action Bustle as it is quite amazing and in leather -wow! An impressively skilled sewist!

    All of the finalists are fabulous ... but I had to vote for the Steampunk Action Bustle costume based tackling leather for a design that's far less than 'simple'! Awesome skills!

    The Steampunk is amazing, that is not easy sewing all those details but MY VOTE IS FOR: WINKIES OZ GUARDS, this just was very original and super creative and i've never seen them before!

    All amazing and awesomely impressive. Especially love that evrryone either designed their own or greatly altered a pattern. In particular, the craftsmanship of the Winkies and the Staempunk blow me away! The Blackbeard looked amazing too, but the photo doesn't seem to have dome all the detail work justice. Thanks!
