I bought a new boater today, with a black ribbon. I wore it with my goggles, black waistcoat, striped dress, petticoat and black boots. There was even a Steampunk stall at our local river festival - I was impressed by this! A few people said I looked 'great' - made me even more sure of the importance of wearing Steampunk to any event!

I am partial to the word REGATTA  - it is evocative  has a ring to it.  

 JUBILEE, FLOTILLA,   RENDEZVOUS, AVANT GARDE, SERENDIPITY & LIBERTY are others redolent  with  having a DAMN GOOD TIME

  and the VICTORY ROLL has so many permutation

All lovely words!  I quite like WATER PICNIC and SON ET LUMIERE (can't do the accents) and EXHIBITION but they have to be attended by people who are out to have a DAMN GOOD TIME!  People in Steampunk dress.

 I'd like to see a picture of the river festival outfit with the new boater and the striped dress -- it is never too hot for a boater!

As promised, images in my 'everyday' Steampunk outfit. I wore my favourite hat today as I was performing magic to 140 children at a school. My friend took these photos, but I am a bit embarrassed as they are so 'posy'...

Hope you like.

Thanks for sharing the photos of the outfit -- that is a perfect example of incorporating Steampunk elements into everyday wear.  It looks marvelous.  You should get on over to the Pin-up thread!

All those shirts have long since hit the bins.

I've still got the jacket though, you never know when it'll come in handy.

As for myself, I rarely dress steampunk unless at a party or an event.  Mainly I dress neat casual with jacket, sweater and jeans.  This is just because, I like to be un=noticable and fit in with the crowd, due to the fact that I spend a large amount of time dashing round the city in cafes and restaurants.(I am that fellow with the coffee and large newspaper and sunglasses sitting on the corner seat)  I don't really have a problem with it, it is just it I like to keep it out of day to day wear.  Wear it too often and it feels overused.

This is a photo of my best friend and I at a punk rock gig last night! I seemed to be the 'enigma' of the evening as nobody really knew what I was! I did get loads of nice comments, though, so obviously people like the look!

I am still surprised at how little people know about Steampunk! I was asked - by an inquisitive punk-rocker - what bands I listen to, and I listed the obvious ones people on here would know. He hadn't heard of any, even though he admitted he spends hours searching for new bands. At a punk rock gig, I was pretty surprised to be the 'odd one out'...

Anyways, I am actually quite glad we are still a mystery! That is what makes this genre so beautiful!

After seeing the good Mr Van Diesel, I may have to retract the statement in my previous post.

If Grandad shirts, waistcoats, leather jeans and brown docs are acceptable, then when not at work, I dress Steampunk pretty much most of the time it seems, there ya go.......

Must buy meself a suitable hat methinks.  Wink

Not around these parts, they ain't — city folk wear sports caps, country folk wear seed caps, old folk wear Tilleys. Damn, what I wouldn't give to find a decent hatter!

New styles must originate from somewhere - go forth and spread the golden message of 'hat'...

More or less Full Steam everyday...sorta.  Lifestyle Bohemian, so full-time weirdo at least, and casual observation from a casual observer seems to be read: "Steampunk", though defining self is generally more complicated, even with something as on-the-surface as styletribe.

Odd story, though: I was at a con awhile back and a street-clothes dressed feller come up lookin' at me and says: "Steampunk?"
Well, not my favorite introduction, but I'm courteous, and con folk are often socially...um, 'differently abled' or something.
So I respond: "Well, something like that, I s'pose!" with a big friendly grin on my face, fully expecting to engage in conversation.

...but he kinda stomped off grumbling under his breath Popeye-stylee something along the lines of: "Well you LOOK like a Steampunk, you blah blah mean guy..."

Huh
