Getting dressed in Casual Steampunk Lolita
(A project for Visual Anthropology)
On Monday I decided I had to go to the London MCM Expo | London Comic Con. I pulled out my sewing machine and went to work.
I present: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
I came, I saw, and zombies were slain. Give me a few hours to wipe the brains off my katana and I will post a making guide on The Mended Soul.
Bathing Costume, c. 1916
This is on my “to-make” list
This is free for Kindle today (and you can always just read kindle books in the browser app if you don’t have an actual Kindle): http://www.amazon.com/SteamDrunks-Steampunk-Cocktails-Drinks-ebook/dp/B006ZT0EZQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345428477&sr=8-1&keywords=steamdrunk
I haven’t read the whole thing, but so far there are some real winners. A must read for all old-school cocktail enthusiasts!
Multiculturalism for Steampunk is starting up a weekly art challenge, and it looks promising. SO EXCITED. I’ve had a bunch of ideas for non-Western steampunk outfits floating around in my head, and it’s nice actually having a weekly deadline to motivate me to finish some of them.
This is pretty subtle in its steampunkery (read: no extranneous metal bits), but I was just trying to bring in a few western/Victorian elements to traditional Indian clothing- legomuttoned sleeves, the double breasted, collared choli, and adapting the churidar into buttoned spats.
…Also a sweet hat.
Did I mention I love this artist?
ughhh. that pipe, the makeup, the book, THE LADY… I’mdead.
