One of the most popular Steampunk costumes is the Steampunk Plague Doctor costume for Halloween or cosplay featuring a long cloak and bird-shape mask. We have listed it on a few of our pages that have collections of costumes, but until this post, we hadn’t given it a separate page. However, since so many of our readers want to get the costume, we decided to devote an entire post to it.
Plague doctor costumes are simple to create because they essentially just require a mask and a robe. That’s because when these costumes were worn by real doctors (or what passed for a doctor during that time), these outfits were designed to keep someone from contracting the Bubonic Plague when treating Plague sufferers. If you’d like more information on the Bubonic Plague which took place during the years of 1331 to 1770, there is a great page, The Black Death: The Plague, 1331-1770, on the University of Iowa’s website.
