Commission: The Steampunk Tailcoat

The Steampunk Tailcoat was a commission that went wrong in a variety of ways, including the customer changing their mind about what they wanted afterwards. Long story short, the Costume Mercenary had two dark red tailcoats extra. The cotton velvet one was sold to Gracewing, but the stretch velvet remains (see Red Velvet Tailcoat).

This Steampunk Tailcoat is made from a dark red cotton velvet. The contrast fabric is made from a red-on-red faux silk brocade and the whole garment is lined in red stretch silk. The large cuffs and lapels are decorated with brass buttons.

In the photos, the Tailcoat is worn over the buckle corset top, which unfortunately obscures the brass catches of the Tailcoat.

The stretch velvet version is available at Character Kit for £75. To commission a similar coat from the Mercenary would cost in the region of £85-90.
