Steampunk Style Tip: A Splash of (Hair) Color

This nearly monochromatic black outfit makes the cosplayer's blue hair (or wig) really stand out. There's nothing to clash or compete with the electric blue, which makes the color pop. If you're putting together a monochromatic brown, black, or gray costume, consider adding just one brightly colored accessory, or even a wig! It can turn a simple ensemble into an eye-catcher.
