Community Tips: We are a friendly association, and would like for this to remain so. Please be kind to your fellow visitors. Hold them in the regard you yourself would like to be held. Constructive criticism is always welcome, cruelty and mean spirited comments will not be tolerated at all.
We adore seeing most of all: New steampunk outfits, gorgeous clothes bought or handmade , modified props, lovely home wares. We also don't mind interesting art, fine film and literature, and news items of note as long as fashion has something to do with it. Steam themed events are also beloved, providing you note what country and state the event is in. The sun never sets on Steamfashion, after all.
Now on to eye candy so you who have seen this all at one point have something new to look at.
The hat and veil are so pretty...

Hello! I just completed an instructional video that I thought could be of interest to some of the members of the community who may be new to corset-wearing. People are often baffled when I tell them that it is indeed possible to lace up a corset by yourself, so I decided to make a video to show how to do this. I also have a free diagram on my website, Wilde Hunt Corsetry showing how to thread your laces in the pattern I show in the video. I hope you find it useful!
Please send me some cool pictures...not so much of accessories...but of awesome interesting clothing for men...
This survey is quite long, so don't feel obliged to fill it all out straight away. Thank you for your assistance!

I either hand-sewed or depended on my MIL for the sewing work required.
However, I found that I wanted to do more, and depending on someone else was not going to work, so I pulled out the sewing machine that was a birthday present 10 years ago, and actually used it for the first time.
I found a Damsel in Distress corset secondhand through the FB Steampunk Fashion group, and went from there. I'm very happy with the results, although I'm still figuring out a persona to guide the accessorizing.
The brown skirt is a thrifted, altered prom dress. Yellow blouse is thrifted. Bustle and apron made from a thrifted shower curtain using Simplicity Pattern #1819. Ebay jacket - vintage 80s Wilson's leather . Corset from Damsel in this Dress. Sleeves in last picture made from scraps of the shower curtain and thrifted sheer material.

I got a 1941 copy of Gray's Anatomy at the 2011 one. The last one, I snagged "The Nineteenth Century and After, Volume LIII, January-June 1903, a monthly review edited by James Knowles" Which I reallllllllly need to find a way to delicately scan. A monthly review of 1903?! I recall at one point they were actually scoffing at the thought of a large scale war. Ya know .. that big one.... named One.
