GET OUTS THE HOUSE: Go see Woodhands!

28 Nov

Hey, whatchoo doin’ tonight?

Me? Going out!

And not in that “watching-someone-play-music-in-the-bath” kind of way.

First, I am attending the Woodhands show at the Biltmore (yay!) and then I’m checking out a steampunk party with a few friends.

But…what does one wear to a steampunk party?

I mean, I know it when I see it – I loved Steamboy – but how do I put it all together?

Wikipedia defines “steampunk fashion” has having no set guidelines (great). However, it says the style tends to synthesize modern styles as filtered through the Victorian era.

Mmmkay… more please.

“This may include gowns, corsets, petticoats and bustles; gentlemen’s suits with vests, coats and spats; or even military-inspired garments,” says Mr. Pedia.

Not wanting to look like an idiot at Woodhands (although, honestly, see above photo), I opted for a more subdued take on the genre inspired by this wicked laptop!

Wearing:
