Hello all,

So, I've decided to head over to Morecambe for the splendid weekend in a couple of weeks. For the Saturday night, there is a requirement for one to "look splendid".

I've been assured that my usual Victorian attire counts as looking splendid, but I'd like to make some little steampunk embellishments, just to make that little extra effort (considering it's a majorly steampunk weekend).

So, I'll be wearing:

A top hat.
Cravat.
Shirt + Waistcoat.
Trousers (Unless something goes horribly wrong).
and some smart shoes.

Got an old pocket watch and chain, some brass and pewter rings I used to wear.

Any other suggestions to steampunk my outfit would be gratefully received. (I should probably add, I'm bloody useless with a needle and thread.)

Cheers

To be honest that sounds pretty spot on already! Smiley

You could always, if you want, add the iconic pair of goggles atop the hat, but otherwise I agree with Mr. Longeye - your intended dress sounds suitably dashing as is.

A walking stick is always a suitable accessory even if such does not contain hidden devices or other surprises.

A medal or two would add to the look

Thanks for the feedback, chaps and chapesses.
Good thinking on the medals, I know a chap with a forge that owes me a favour or two.
As for a walking stick, maybe I could have a compartment fashioned with which to conceal a scone in the top?

A monocle pinned to your lapel and a sharp watch fob.
