"Everything about Jett Gallatin told the world the black-clad drifter was either a gambler or a shootist- or both- but no one in their wildest dreams would think Jett Gallatin was a girl." Dead Reckoning

I tried to give Jett's concept a bit of an updated look while maintaining the integrity of her character. The basic pieces for this look consist of black skinny jeans and an over-sized sheer tunic top with metal accents, which is worn over a black holster top (which also doubles as a bra). Black fringe cowboy boots match the leather corset belt, and the whole look is tied together with an ox-head ring (because nothing says "don't mess with me" like an ox-head ring!) and a metal rimmed cowboy hat. If you're lucky enough to own a horse like Jett, don't forget to dress up your stallion with a black saddle complete with similar silver metallic accents! What do you think?

Of course, what steampunk/western outfit would be complete without a spectacular harness or holster for easy storage of guns, booze, or salt for killing off zombies. Etsy offers a number of great options if you're looking for that perfect holster to match all your transporting needs. They say everything's bigger in Texas, so don't be afraid to get crazy with this look! Just remember that in case of a zombie infestation, you should go for practicality over aesthetics. Jett learns the hard way that corsets and ankle length calico skirts do not a great zombie hunting outfit make. Or you can take Gibbons's and the suffragette approach and sport a Rational Dress, which combines femininity and practicality all in one neat pantaloon-y package! Vaya con dios mi amigos!
