Does that have a filter in it? Could make a stylish COVID mask. I haven't even looked around, to be honest but there must be a number of adapted Steampunk masks around.

Thank you miranda!
And yes, Wilhelm, there is a removable fabric mask inside the leather. I found this one on etsy and was in love in an instant

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Sadly, the relationship didn't survive the whole covid situation. So... No.

Ha! I got a full length Pride of Scotland kilt me self. Love the tartan's pattern and colours (and it's commonly available for export/import). I chose mine in acrylic, not because of the price, but because it's washable! It's a tad less bright than natural wool but looks the part. Being gender fluid /non-binary, I also have a woolen 13 inch Billie kilt in the same tartan  Shocked Roll Eyes , you know, for hotter days?  Wink

the ones I got are 70 % wool 30 % synthetic wool, according to the etsy page. being agender nonbinary myself, I am quite pleased with it managing to hide my hips quite well... though it is making me realise I should loose weight Sad

also...ones?

For the longest time, I've been trying to get my father's family tartan (Erskine green & red, 18th C ) in wool. But they're expensive. I content myself with a scarf from Lochcarron, which still looks as bright as when I bought it circa 1983.

this one in the black watch tartan...

[tartan pedantry] I don't see much red in it so it can't be the dress version (has white too); must be one of the military setts like Blackwatch by Wilson's of Bannockburn (coarse) [/tartan pedantry]

I bought a print by Bobbie Berrendson W of the St. Augustine Bustle Racing Club several years ago and wanted my own bustle racer ever since.  In 2019 and with my husbands help I finally managed to build one. 

That's me with the bustle so large it needs a driver.

I made the bustle and while I was sewing the dress my husband offered to do "something simple" for the inside.  And proceeded to go superbly mad.  He even installed miniature fire extinguishers and a still for the driver, Gnome Oscar.

Wonderful! A bustle with wheels! Makes perfect sense to me.

Apologies for the late response (December was a stupidly busy month for us) but may I just say that is superb! How does one signal the miniature driver as to which way to turn? A bell system such as on a ship, perhaps..?  Cheesy

Well, after spending very little of 2020 'punked up I've decided I'm not going to let 2021 slip by in the same way and will take on any excuse to put on the finery; heck, I think even if a documentary about Queen Vic comes on the telly I may dress for the occasion. Anyway, on New Year's day we had an evening of Victorian parlor games, and here's a piccy from the end of it.

Gorgeous as always my dear Miranda.

I have been wearing long skirts every day too, but no bustle. 
However  I did make a couple of long victorian pinafores to keep them clean - I've even made one with shoulder ruffles but that is far too pretty to wear when it might get dirty  Cheesy

Thank you!  Smiley I'd love to see pictures of the pinafores, although I do appreciate arm-wrestling BG into showing images can be rather challenging*.

Wow, these amazing costumes are now making me worried that my puny efforts won't be up to scratch... I was looking at more of a Victorian walking outfit (aka Beatrix Potter type style). I do love the colour of that tartan, and the green dress looks completely Christmas and totally splendid!

Many thanks  Smiley. I do hope to see your walking outfit at some point, which I am sure will be completely wonderful. Talking of tartan, I was wondering if it was worth putting together an outfit for our Burns Night meal later this month (at home of course, we've just gone into yet another lockdown in the UK...), although I'm sure it would just be a pale shadow of Caledonian's.

Miranda.

I have so far received the dress patterns, (although I can see they need modification as they are a bit frilly for my austere taste...), my hat (top hat/ladies riding hat), some goggles (now disassembled and being modified) and some rather splendid upholstery 'fabric' which looks like old timey leather. I knew just by handling it, that it would be easier to sew and handle than the 'leather look vinyl' which was also being sold. It feels much nicer. I hope it works out OK. Will have to find a photo hosting site and upload some pictures. (I am surprised by how excited I am by all this!)
