I just carry everything in my portable device. It also makes a nice conversation piece.

Hmmm, I had to look up "reticule" and found quite an interesting pair of definitions...

Noun 1. reticule - a woman's drawstring handbag; usually made of net or beading or brocade; used in 18th and 19th centuries
handbag, purse, bag, pocketbook - a container used for carrying money and small personal items or accessories (especially by women); "she reached into her bag and found a comb"

 2. reticule - a network of fine lines, dots, cross hairs, or wires in the focal plane of the eyepiece of an optical instrument
graticule, reticle
cross hair, cross wire - either of two fine mutually perpendicular lines that cross in the focus plane of an optical instrument and are use for sighting or calibration; "he had the target in his cross hairs"
eyepiece, ocular - combination of lenses at the viewing end of optical instruments
network - a system of intersecting lines or channels; "a railroad network"; "a network of canals"

There must be a way to combine the two! A reticular reticule!!!1!! MWAHAHAHAAAA! Ahem.

Hmm, what do I have in my bag?  Well at the moment:

Keys
Purse
Primary glasses case
Secondary glasses case (which is slightly bigger than the first, so I use to house any make-up I decide to take with me)
Phone
MP3 Player
Dictaphone
Gloves
Deodorant
Baby Wipes
Camera
Pack of AA batteries
Pack of AAA batteries
A polystyrene..sparkly sequinned...egg...?
Small notebook
Pens
Pack of Nurofen
Small mirror
Tictacs
Lighter
Vicks menthol inhaler
Comb
Two USB memory sticks
Spare character sheets
Current character sheet
Dice
Torch
Earphone splitter
HMV gift vouchers.

Quite a small bag too...it's amazing what you can fit in a space sometimes  Grin.  When I don't feel like taking my bag out though, I tend to just shove a few 'absolute essentials' in my pouch belt.  Usually consists of phone, purse, keys, MP3, batteries, torch and character sheet (well you never know!)

Gentlemen are permitted as long as they are frocked, beautiful and also discussing things as we are, aha. No male trolls allowed.

I feel I must vote that 'Pics or it didn't happen' apply here ^_^.  You'd better be dedicated if you want to contribute to this thread  Tongue.

I always have my iPhone, wallet, Pocket Ref, mini tools, safety pins, lipstick, studio fix compact, and usually various other things.

They REALLY need to make a Pocket Ref ap for the iphone. That thing takes up too much room!

Hello! Glad to see this group on the boards!

To answer the question of what's in my purse at the moment:

1 bag of Earl Grey tea
1 bag of chai tea
Hairbrush
Small comb
Allergy medication
small bottle of Ibuprofen
3 tubes of lipstick

My wallet, phone, and keys are actually in my pockets. I prefer to have those things on my person in case something should happen to my purse.

well, If we're all done keeping the men out *excuse the forum noob Grin* I do have rather a problem.
How exactly can I continue to dress so wonderfully steampunk once I'm shipped off to band camp? Band camp is quite infamous for being the hottest week of the summer, and as I'm rather new to the steampunk scene (just a few months, really) I need some fashion tips. I currently wear nice full skirts with blouses to school, or at least a frilly top and an oil stained vest with jeans and boots, but summer is going to be a whole different story, with weather being in the high 80's to low 90's.

There is a delightful set of cotton unmentionables ("Edwardian Pyjamas"), quite suitable for frolicking, available at www.devalifewear.com .  Look in the "Lounge and Sleepwear" section.

They are available in a range of sizes (up tp 3X), and in colors (royal blue, black, moss green, purple, white, and natural), for the incredible price of $38 a set!  I myself have purchased a pair of the white (which unfortunately tend to become rather see-thru when frolicking upon the lawn at a Victorian Sprinkler Party).  But I believe the colored sets would do admirably wet or dry.

I'm going to try and solve the pocket problem at some point next week by designing some suitably feminine cinchy/peplum/belty things with pockets in....

I have solved the pocket problem for the fall/winter by making a muff with interior pockets, but I need to make something for the spring/summer months.

Steampunk fanny pack, perhaps? They might be 90's, but they do hold useful things.

It's contents are the bare minium:
small case for ID, bank card etc.
money
cell phone
picture of the little one
oil blotting sheets for touch ups
pill case with advil and tylenol
gum
keys
lip balm
lip gloss
a few random bits of jewelry- an ear ring and a couple of scatter pins
inhaler
band aides
sunglasses

I think I am going to stitch pockets into the lining of my waistcoats, so I can at least listen to my ipid and cary shopping at the same time. It dosn't do to look like one is struggling down the high street.

A stout leather satchel may look somewhat eccentric but is very practical I find

I have a military map/navigation case that I want to use as a purse it has all sorts of little pockets for storing stuff but a clear plastic front for your map of course so i must do something there.

Pockets on the inside of the waistcoat is a good idea I may steal that one.  Wink

At some point there was thread on making an utility corset and it sounds like a better idea all the time.

Brilliant - like a utility kilt for gentlemen.

I also favour a long lens case for transporting pens pencils etc

One thing I tend to do, especially when I am more dressed up is granted more of a medieval sort of solution but I make my reticules on a long cord that can be tied around my waist so I can have the pretty ornate thing and still have my hands free. If I want to wear it on my wrist I can tuck the long cords inside it just fine.

You can what I mean here: http://threethirteen.net/x/wedding/IMG_9330.JPG <---- big ass pictuure.
