Waaaaaaaay OT: Corset Help?

I have been asked to DJ a steampunk party next month at SoonerCon and I really want to look the part. Can anyone give me some pointers on making an underbust corset? I have found some patterns online that seem easy enough, but can I buy steel boning at craft stores or is this something I have to order? I'm going to need the strong stuff to hold all the me in!

Thanks for any help you can give me!

The Boning you can pick up at most Joanns wont cut it it is to lightweight,
Check here
Another alternative is Heavy duty cable ties from places like Lowes or Home depot, these may actually work better for you, they are strong but still flexible, & washable.

Hey woman! Thanks for the comment! Dude, when you figure out how to make the corset, I need to commission you to make me one! ha

SoonerCon sounds like fun! Is there a site with more information about it, like where what times and stuff? Dudette you'll be a kick ass DJ. You need to come join my roller derby league too :p. You could just be a referee even if you don't want to skate! I know you'd love it.
