He was a steamy gentleman, and is hopefully joining the forum at some point today! He started the steampunk group on facebook, so some of you might already know him...

Good evening ladies, pink gin time again.
Darkshines, for afternoon tea I would wear, camisole, bloomers ,corset as a base layer then what ever you wear on the top will look fab. depends on what look you want, Blouse skirt/dress for a ladylike look or something more rugged, for a sky pirate look. A dab of eau de cologne and a smile to finnish off. Have a nice time. L.E.

Tea time dresses are lovely in filmy chiffon fabrics, and a fine hat is always a proper accessory!  However, I am sure your gentleman friend will hardly notice what you are wearing, preferring to focus on your sparkling eyes and lovely smile.  Have fun!  Wink

Mrs. S.

Filmy fabrics tend to last seconds on me, so I stick with the more sturdy and practical stuff normally! The filmiest stuff I have is silk and even that sees a lot of wear over time. I am a bit of a lummox and tend to shred delicate things.

Yes, as the weather let me down, I went for something sturdier, but thanks for all the help!

I love beautiful clothes and fabrics but am a bit of a "lummox" too, I often look like I've been dragged through the underbrush. In fact, I prefer this over the way that I look when wearing things I haven't trampled on at some point!
Fortunately this isn't necessarily always a bad look. My everyday outfits are often pearls teamed with ragged skirts or dresses, and ribbons or flowers in my hair that is looks to be full of knots.


Oh, and hello. I've been meaning to join in here for some time.

Sloe gin is good too - especially home made - the commercial variety is usually too sweet

Its easy peasy to make although I don't know if you have sloes in the USA - basically they are a small wild damson and very sour.

You pierce them with a skewer, put into a bottle and top up with gin and sugar to taste.
Store in a cool place, give it a shake every now and then and in a month or so - lovely sloe gin!

Violet Rose my dear, where do you obtain the sloes?  I would love to try this out for myself.

In the highways and the hedges -
This is what it looks like

Its worth checking out any likely trees now and keeping an eye on them for the autumn - IIRC it is distinguishable from whitethorn in that the flowers come out before the leaves.They recommend not to pick the fruit until after the first frost but I don't think I have ever bothered about that.

I'm sorry, I appear to have wandered into the wrong room: tell me, where might I find the smoking room where I may pass the port, smoke cigars and tell bawdy tales to my fellow menfolk?

well isnt it nice to have a place to talk about lady things.....
questions that have been asked i shall endevour to answer
in my handbag - of which is based on an authentic victorian handbag
wallet, various lipsticks, keys, powder, little bag of various medical tablets, handcleanser, mobile phone, a pen and my diary
I have a couple of different bags for various SP outfits - dainty beaded bags to go with my posh outfits, hip belt bags for my gypsy dancer outfit and leather crossbody bag for my adventurer outfit.

i tend to do my makeup, with dark shimmery browns on the eyes, heavy black eyeliner and dark red lipstick, im afraid i cannot leave my gothic makeup behind, although i replaced my usual colourful eyeshadow with bronzes instead!

my tea of choice? well i have a obbsession with earlgrey and vanilla tea. It is by tetleys and absolutly sublime.
Although... i tried this amazing tea at the Botham tea Rooms in Whitby called ...um well it was an exotic japanese name but was also known as 'popcorn' tea as it smelt and tasted not unlike fresh popcorn! it also did wonders for the digestive system.

Good morning Ladies, Raspberry gin is made in the same way as sloe gin, described by Violet Rose. I buy the reduced (on sale) fruit that's a bit squashed in the supermarket but it also works with frozen raspberry's when I have to make emergency bottles for gifts. Add sugar to taste and wait. It is then nice to print personalised labels for the bottles. I use about 25% of volume of fruit to gin. Enjoy , Yours ,Lady Elsie.

Frozen raspberries are, by far, the best snack in summer....Mmmm.....

I'm rather partial to frozen strawberry myself, or kiwi fruit. Mmm. Delicious!


Ladies - I have a wedding reception coming up. No, not my own, but that of a dear friend. While I'm sure he wouldn't so much as blink at me dressed head-to-toe in dark shades - afterall, we have been friends for many years - I do suspect that their family would not appreciate it.
I most certainly need a new dress for it, yet I don't want to feel uncomfortable. I'm very pale and find bright colours are often terribly unflattering for me.

I have a very curvy figure and believe a 50s style halterneck dress with a bolero or shrug will be most flattering, but I'm still struck for colour. I would like something that accentuates my natural leaning towards the dark yet is unlikely to upset the in-laws.
Perhaps a dusky pink, or shades of grey?
