Abraham Lincoln, Steampunk Vampire Hunter
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Karen, the 'Abraham Lincoln' costume creator:
My 11 year old son Jacob loves history, so his vampire hunter is a steampunk take on Abraham Lincoln. His backpack "shoots" holy water and kerosene (it is made from vintage fire extinguishers) and he also carries garlic, stakes, and a revolver with silver bullets - since you never know what might attack. The little glass vials on his hat hold "hunting trophies" - ash, and vampire fangs,ade from fimo clay. Plus of course, he has Abe's trusty axe! I'm not in most of these pictures, but I'm going along in full steampunk librarian gear - the Giles to his Buffy! My mother-in-law does the sewing, and I do the construction.
