Here's an awesome steampunked video game cosplay we haven't seen before: Mario and Princess Peach! We also love the reason they decided to go Steampunk:

"We were looking for cosplay ideas, and I said Mario and Princess Peach, and she said "I will not dress as a Princess" and so we became steampunk."
The details really make the outfits here. Notice the cute metal crown at a jaunty tilt on Peach's head. Her lace necklace mimics the neckline of Peach's dress, and includes her iconic blue brooch. The white paper parasol makes an excellent, less-girly version of Peach's magical parasol, Perry. 

Mario's red felt bowler hat is decorated with a white feather, a metal 'M' and gears. He carries a copper plunger and throws the occasional homemade LED fireball.
