This upcycled leather Steampunk Festival Belt is really fun. It’s got a steampunk octopus. Who doesn’t love a steampunk octopus? It also has a steampunk dragonfly on the other side, and tentacles embroidered on the iPhone pocket in the back. It has magnetic snaps to keep the pocket flaps in place, and zippers inside to keep your stuff in place in case of handstands or sudden drops in airship elevation.
It’s made from two colors of leather (upcycled from used leather jackets), a gorgeous coppery fabric, and faux leather for the side pocket flaps. All the creatures are embroidered on. For stamina.
I wear one of these every day in lieu of a purse or backpack and I absolutely love it. It has enough space for my moneys, my lipstick, my business cards, and my phone (fits an iPhone 4 or 5, I haven’t tried it with a 6 or an Android phone), with two extra small secret pockets behind the phone pocket for frequent buyer cards and hair ties, or of course, spy documents.
I made this for me, but then realized it isn’t .. quite .. me. It certainly is someone though. So I’m going to sell it. It’ll fit hip size 35-45 or thereabouts. I’m asking $150. Send me an email if you’d like it.
