I was invited to a wedding this past weekend that was in a Steampunk style. Now, full disclosure: I was an SCA geek for 20+ years and have no problem getting dressed up in historically accurate garb and going out in public. Steampunk, however, is new to me. So in my own defense, this outfit is thrown together from a thrift store top, a skirt and belt I owned, my beloved boots and a hat I bought on ebay.
If I end up doing more streampunk I intend to get a set of red crinoline for under the skirt and a waist cincher that will cover the whole middle area.
I’m not entirely wild about how my face looks in this picture; it was hot, bright, and the wedding party was indulging in nearly 2 hours of picture taking. (Pet peeve: take most of the pictures BEFORE the ceremony so your guests aren’t sitting around bored and waiting for you!) Plus my lip stuff had worn off.
The coolest thing, however, is that the shirt is really cute on it’s own. I may need to do more thrifting.
