I think these shoes will be both cute and comfy to wear as part of a Steampunk OC cosplay. I’m starting to work on it for a themed Tea at a convention in 2014. I think they would look nice in a brown Lolita coordinate as well but I’m not sure I like brown enough to wear it for something that isn’t a costume. It will depend on whether the skirt I use for the cosplay is brown. If it is, I may use it in a regular Lolita coordinate with them.
