How cool is this? Steampunk Ash! What a distinguished demon-slaying gentleman.
Gores Truly has a nice long interview with Clifton, the creator. He talks about how he got into steampunk, why he chose the character Ash, and how he made the costume.
It’s a great read, be sure to check it out!
I don’t know if it was growing up reading classic sci-fi like Jules Verne, the romantic Victorian flair, or my previous career as an engineer, but I found that the steampunk style innately appealed to me. At the time, I was wearing a movie version costume of Ash from Army of Darkness and it occurred to me that the Evil Dead trilogy had a lot of Steampunk characteristics. So the idea of an alternate-era Ash with a ridiculous steam powered chainsaw became the top choice for my next DragonCon costume.
