Steampunk Monday

So, I wouldn’t say I know an awful lot about the Streampunk movement – my friend Ruth really likes it and she is where I first heard the term, but I didn’t think much more of it until I stumbled upon some very cool steampunk themed weddings on OffBeatBride.com!

It totally inspired me to have a go and putting some of my own lonely old clothes together to see if I could create a similar effect. So here are my efforts!

I would try and give you an explination here of what steampunk is, but it could go inaccurately and embarrassingly wrong seeing as I really am only inspired by it, I do not know that much. If you are curious you are probably much better wiki-ing it yourself :)

I tried to capture the stripes and tweed kind of Victoriana feel, and I now kind of feel like that character out of Wind In The Willows… you know the one…

No all I need are some goggles I suppose..

I feel like my glasses are such that they could potentially do?

Anyway, over and ………..

oh yeah small matter of little importance…

I WAS FEATURED ON WHATKATIEWORE YESTERDAY.
