Featured in the book "1,000 Steampunk Creations: Neo-Victorian Fashion, Gear and Art"

Limited edition NEW version! I now have these harnesses available in this beautiful metallic brass faux leather version! This harness has the same design as my other popular faux leather versions, so you may want to look at those listings for more detailed photos.

This harness is a unique item, only from Velvet Mechanism. It's a metallic brass, faux leather, chest harness bodice accented with all sorts of steampunk elements - silver buckles, authentic antique silver skeleton keys, 2 sizes of gears, and chain!

It's the perfect way to dress up any outfit and instantly make it look more steampunk! You can wear this bodice with gritty looks: ship's mechanic, aviator, mad inventor, pirate wench, post-apocalyptic scavenger - or with more refined looks: Victorian lady explorer, clockmaker's daughter, or aristocratic naturalist. It works with so many different styles! This would also look lovely with bellydance, playa or tribal outfits where you want to add a steampunk twist.

The keys are authentic antique keys, so they might not match exactly, but they'll be as close a match as I can find. The keys will be clean, dark silver and pretty much the same size (keys range from about 1" to 2"). There's one small (1/4" diameter) gear and one large (1/2" diameter) gear dangling from each key. The gunmetal chain is attached to the key on the right with a lobster clasp, so it's easy to un-hook when you want to take the bodice on or off.

The bodice is made of faux leather with an elastic back for comfort. The shoulder straps have adjustable silver buckles, so you can set them at the height that's most comfortable for you. You can also cross the straps in back in an X-shape for a slightly different look. You could wear this down around your waist as a cincher, or higher up, just below your bust (as shown in the photos). The bodice closes at the front with Velcro below the silver buckles.

This is available in one size only, however, it's adjustable, so I'd recommend it for anyone size extra-small up to large. It can fit sizes of about 28" to 34" (your waist or under-bust measurements, depending on what height you wear it at - I recommend it for underbust). Completely unstretched and lying flat it measures 12 and 1/2" to 13" across. It measures 8" tall (not including straps) at the highest point, and 3 and 1/2" tall at the front near the buckles.

I also have the same bodice available in BROWN or TAN faux leather, or GREY or BLACK velvet/faux suede! And I have a whole range of steampunk jewelry in my store in case you're looking for more accessories.

The harness is ready to be shipped and it will be sent by Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation in the US.
