Gentleman Steampunk Pirate by Lillyxandra 
"This is the matching costume to the Lady Steampunk Pirate Costume. One of my goals making these costumes was to be able give both costumes a steampunk feel with out having useless gears all over them. Both costume have a skull theme that is fitting for pirates.  For his shoulder armor I altered a toy skull and embellished it with leather straps and metal finding.”

Trust me. Lace in this order only.

Unless you’re really, really good at tree pose. :D

What SLD said! I have always been able to get on my shoes and boots on/off while corseted. It may take longer/ take some getting used to, but whoever said it was absolutely impossible, eithera) is wearing a corset that was too long or not the right fit,b) has super short/ inflexible hamstrings, orc) is not trying hard enough.

Yeah, I always put my shoes/boots on after my corsets and it’s not really that much of a problem.  I suspect this is much more of a problem for those wearing cheap corsets made with all flat steel that totally restrict waist movement.Also anyone heard of bending at the hips?
