Now I have to go watch Doctor Who and probably cry my eyes out.
But seriously. I’ll post pictures later.
World’s Faire is in THREE DAYS and I still have to
- buy my dinosaurs
- buy a Hawaiian shirt
- make a skirt
- make a bustle to go over said skirt
- figure out how to make a gun holster for my mom
- figure out how to make a utility belt that will visibly carry books
Is slutty Wash an acceptable thing? I thought I’d have time to buy burnt orange leggings or make a jumpsuit to go under the Hawiian shirt, but lol finals, and now I’m kind of screwed. So Hawiian shirt, dinosaurs, shorts, and combat boots? Maybe?
I finished my apron last night! It’s intended to be for an Alice in Wonderland steampunky costume, but I don’t have the dress or the bloomers completed yet, so I put it on with my corset, and still absolutely love it.
The fabric, if you can’t tell, is creme with white writing. The writing is all relevant to the Alice story, so I thought it would be perfect. My bloomers are blue with color illustrations from Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece.
It has working pockets. Pockets on a costume are good. :-D
I know I won’t see Eli August. Which is really sad. But I’ll see him at SPWF.
I am very excited to see ENSMB and Frenchy and the Punk!
I made this for my friend’s daughter for when we go to Watch City. My friend KC is modeling it for me. :-D Also, after I took this picture, I added glitter. Every little girl should have purple glittery gear covered scrabble barrette.
I’m hoping to have Steampunk Belle (blue dress) completed by Steampunk World’s Faire. I can handle making the dress (for the most part, I’m still not sure how I want to make a bustle that will come off and let it be Disney movie accurate) but I need some accessories.
What I thought would be good would be to make a funky case for my ereader and to find a way to holster it somehow.
Does anyone know any good tutorials for working with pleather or for making something like what I’m looking for? Or suggestions for things I could do?
Last night the New York Nineteenth Century Society had a release party for Eli August and the Abandoned Buildings’ new cd, and Baroque and Hungry got to perform with them for a song, as well as doing their own set. All the music had so much energy, and it was just a fun, upbeat evening.
Eli and the Abandoned Buildings’ new cd, by the way, is perfect. It’s still very deep and meaningful, but the songs have this new upbeat energy that just feels different and more exciting. All of Eli’s stuff is great, but oh man is this new cd brilliant. You must listen to it.
I AM A CORSETSEXUAL.
So my friend, and lead singer of the Abandoned Buildings, Eli August, was an extra in Lincoln. And they just showed a scene he was in on the Oscars.
Therefore, Eli August was just on the Oscars.
WHAT NOW STEAMPUNK!
WHO AM I GOING TO SEE AT WICKED FAIRE THIS WEEKEND?!?!?!?!?!?!?
