The Steampunk and Cosplay Fashion Design and Illustration is a wonderful book, with so much ideas and fabric to use when creating these looks. I love how Samantha Crossland made it so simple to follow and understand which patterns and styles that would work best with the Steampunk look. The book itself is so nicely illustrated and shows real patterns and styles that I am interested in using for my next designs. 
This book really does help me understand how to make a look more Cosplay or Steampunk verse the traditional styles that everyone are use to wearing. It actually is a perfect beginners book and anyone who has interest in learning to use Steampunk in their designs.
The best part, is the step by step projects this book has to offer and the full information and photos that help guide you through each project, which makes it so much more easier to understand and create. I absolutely love this book!
