Presumably 'take someone else's Steampunk clothing OFF' would be a vulgar answer? Wink

Just sayin', this style being frankly one of the most attractive a gentleman can possibly wear...!

What would I like to do in Steampunk garb?

Get lucky, springs to mind… preferably in an airship, steamship or Pullman carriage.

And I would like to try a classic driven game hunt in Edwardian style (although I did do a quail/pheasant hunt in Scottish kilt/field attire once). Perhaps flycasting with a classic two handed salmon rod on a good run in Victorian/Edwardian style would be fun, or driving a vintage pre-1905 motor carriage, or attending the opera in formal Victorian attire, or flying in a biplane as more of a pre-WWI dieselpunk.


So would I!! All sound fantastic ideas (though I might skip fishing, and the biplane).

I would SO love a sleigh ride. *Dreamy sigh*

 No one has mentioned a formal garden party.

 That would be a grand idea with cucumber sandwiches on the lawn and peacocks   wandering about

That sounds absolutely delightful; fresh strawberries and  iced tea in the shade of elegant pavilion on a glorious summer's day. One can dream...

Everything I could... but like many others who've commented my 'steampunk' clothes are ones I use for general use anyway (just a few tasteful accessories to set them off).

Things I wouldn't do in 'steampunk' clothes include have a long soak in the bath, sunbathe on a nudist beach (kind of defeats the object but raises the question whether the skin of a steampunk would be 'steampunk clothes' there)?

My steampunk clothes are just that - clothes that I wear at steampunk events.  The fact that I might also be seen putting fuel in the vehicle, carrying a basket at the supermarket, sitting on a train and so on in them is just one of these things.  Steampunk is life.

Personally I do not wear them about the house or when doing the gardening. But that is only due to the difficulty of cleaning them afterwards and I do not want them to wear out.  They take too long to make.

Tour a Honduran chocolate plantation/factory seemed a little too unlikely  to add to the list.

ok too late now...but I remember being an undergrad at York (1989-92) where, on the lake that the campus is built around, at the end of the 3rd year and after the final exams, we rowed 4 boats out from Wentworth College...tied them together and perhaps 8 to 10 of us had a pimms party on the lake

awfully civilised don'tyerknow

now if that was done with a steampunk theme as well it would be perfect

More gin anyone

Play quasi-period (say, 1890s) music on Banjo, flute and concertina. I do that anyway, but sans the Steampunk accoutrements. I'd like to busk in full Steampunk outfit, just to see what happens...
