I’ve noticed there’s a lot of love for belts, straps, and pouches in gaming, comics, and most fantasy/science fiction art. Don’t know why, but it’s a thing. And it’s a thing in steampunk too.
So a selection of belts, straps, and pouches — and armor pieces too, since where there is the one, there is usually the other.

Notes: Honestly, there’s never a shortage of belts, straps, and pouches in 3D. These are only a few I thought were most useful for the purpose at hand. The wide belt from the Edwardian Suit is useful for covering gaps when clothing pieces don’t quite cover the stomach. The Shadow Dancer sets are available for multiple figures in addition to V4 and M3. There’s also a V4 version of Peacemaker at Xurge’s site, and a G2M version of Hunterman at PoserAddicts.
Belts & Straps, Free
Notes: Again, the Wide Morphing Belt is useful for concealing skin or covering gaps where tops and bottoms don’t quite meet; the buckle and eyelets can be hidden.
Notes: The Cyber Extender may not be exactly armor, but for kit-bashing purposes it works as a mechanical arm…which is kind of armor. There’s a number of steampunk folks who add arm and shoulder armor to their costumes.
Notes: Basic armor that can be textured to look like metal or leather.
