These are not pictures from sci-fi movies, these amazing costumes are actually hand made by Alexander Schlesier in his spare-time. Without any commercial purpose, these stunning looking steampunk works were created only because of Alexander’s passion. Using only authentic materials, such as old leather, steel, brass, copper, wood and glass, Alexander made these steampuck costumes with screws instead of glue. Since there are no plastic parts inside, sometimes the costumes are pretty heavy, like the below one which weight almost 90lbs!
