The last few weeks have been full with good looking ladies and gentlemen and got me anxious to flaunt my Steampunk gear again, as it has been too long.

Luckily, I had a wonderful opportunity this weekend, as me and a few other Dutch Steampunk lovers met to visit the Veluwsche Stoomtrein Maatschappij (Veluwse Steamtrain Company). Obviously, a true playground for this kind of thing and ideal backdrop for photos in a Steampunk setting. My favourite:

We Three Steampunks....

Two lovely steampunks from Montreal with me at a recent convention in Gatineau, Quebec.




Great picture! Quite the range of styles represented between three people.


Thank you.  There was a great range of steampunk styles there.

If you don't mind me saying so ma'am you're a very elegant Lady. I also like the way that gent is rockin his long piratey waistcoat. I'd never considered they could work so well with Vicwardian stylings, but now I see it it looks rather swish.


Thank you.  Most kind.  That gent is quite the well dressed man.

Oh well at least I think it proves that Birmingham as a whole is not ready for even my toned down version of steampunk. When they asked people to cheer, my outfit got complete silence =P I strangely feel that was something of an achievement.

It does seem that the public expects "Steampunk" to be outlandish.  I too, am more of a realist.  "MY" version of Steampunk is Victorian Science Fiction, not a goofy clown act.

Everybody has their take on Steampunk, that is mine.

I think it would have been a worse reaction if the outfit was more 'outlandish'.
Either way, I like my steampunk to be things I can wear every day.

Some great outfits on the last couple of pages, really inspiring.

BB Blackdog which cemetery is your drummer in? Looks familiar...

I tend to agree, though sometimes certain people pull off outlandish very very well.  However, sometimes just odd I fun too.  The other night a band played at the local Saloon, if you could call them a band.  Two guys, in their 60's or so, acoustic guitars and such.  The one fella looked like Kieth Richards (I found out later he was a look alike in LA for a while, ha ha) was dressed rather like a Rolling Stone I guess.  Except that his fedora sort of hat had a bandana skulls and cross bones on it, some weird necklaces, and a Civil War grey jacket, with converse allstars.  He asked first if I worked at the Saloon (which is a classic western theme, bat-wing doors and such), and when I mentioned I did not asked if my dressing (a bib-front and high-waisted trousers, belt with my flask holster and a good knife) was a steampunk thing.  Then we got to talking and it turns out he's a bit of a steampunk himself, though sort of a loner looking to find a good community.  We exchanged emails and hopefully we'll see him on here sometime.

At MCM Expo last October, the professional photographer's assistant liked our costumes so much she pestered the photographer into taking a shot of us on her phone. After five minutes of posing, the photographer got so annoyed with the iPhone camera that he picked up his own camera and took the shot. Searching his website later, I found our photo!

I think this year we'll actually have to pay him to get one of all ten of us.

I usually leave out the weapons and trade the top hat for something lower profile, but other than that, I am in the same boat.

Cheers! Nice to know I'm not the only one  Grin

I still wear my bowler but for the most part I've gotten rid of all my t-shirts (unless it's an undershirt) and all my jeans. If I wore "normal" clothes people would think something was wrong  Cheesy  I love it and other people love it so don't fix what isn't broken!

From one "cantankerous old man" to another "fuddy-duddy" great shots you've got there.  Might I ask where you found the hat in the upper photo?  I've been wanting after one since watching the King Kong remake.  Not to mention that the crusher cap I've got from WhatPriceGlory just does not seem to be crushing the way it ought to.

Actually had a similar problem with finding the right cap when I was doing Russian Civil War reenacting.  Many of those by 1919 were either crudely made or had been through so much that they had a very noticeable crushed appearance from the typical high peaked cap.  Without many suppliers in the US and the post-war versions being too stiff, I simply took a Russian visor cap, (to examine the basic pattern) some old material, (1930's laundry bag) and some scrap leather and made my own.  They are actually quite simple to make.  Getting the visor to stay outward is the only problem, though with the Russian style, it points downward thus making it even easier.

Thanks for the tip, and you did a grand job of it.  My other half is fancying herself a seamstress these days, well, a soon-to-be-seamstress (soon-to-be meaning when ever we finally take the sewing machine out of the box it was delivered in-from Christmas).  Mayhap she'll not mind making one for me (as I will be making her things of leather).

And as far as the dressing up, the bib-fronts, vests, kerchiefs, and certainly that gus-crowned hat of mine are daily attire.   The last time I was out in only a t-shirt was actually a tank top this last summer (its a replica of the one worn by Jack Burton, of Big Trouble In Little China).  Though I will mention that for the most part, say nearly everyday of the week, I'm wearing jeans.  However, when one thinks of it, that is the beauty of West Texas attire.  You put on your jeans, your boots, shirt, vest, kerchief, of course all after donning your hat, and go ride the dusty trail.  Then when it comes time for a real shin-dig, you walk up the steps, dust off your clothes and in you go; already properly dressed for the occasion.  In point of fact, a fresh pair of jeans is considered appropriate to be worn with a collared shirt, vest and hat at a wedding.  Friends of mine were married in just that fashion, he in the aforementioned get-up and she in a nice, simple, white summer dress that came to just above the knee, and tall western boots.  They were quite a sight to be seen.
