what's the weirdest attempt you've seen someone do to make clothing "steampunk" ?
For me it's probably this kilt with a bustle:

A bustled  Billie kilt?  Or a kilted mini bustle?  Grin

A wee bustled kiltie would be just the thing for braw nights in the airship.

I rather like the illustration, but is it intended for the lads or the lassies?  The idea of bustles for men strikes me as just the thing for the next steampunk fashion trend.

It looks a bit Vivienne Westwood to me.

It's more of an external set of frills than what I would consider a real bustle.
Wearing any kind of bustle-pad or frame under that kilt would just lift the rear hem up to an embarrassing degree.   Shocked

Frill, bustle, I think it's brilliant! And also cute.

Definitely, but it would be even cuter if shamelessly short*.

Perhaps, but as an hirsute-posteriored chap over thirty, I assure you that nobody would appreciate the twin moons of Strange in a short kilt, frilled bustle or no.

More likely you would all learn why the English of Edmund Longshanks were so traumatised by the troops of William Wallace.

"...but nevertheless, these kilted boys were called the ladies from hell..."

It all makes so much sense now

Oh, sweet irony, I went agoogling to find a suitably kiltlifting picture of the 'Devils in skirts' from Carry on up the Khyber, and half the images are of this lot...

There are only 2 correct answers for the age-old question:
1. Nothin'
2. Yer mam's lipstick.

Fair warning is now given. I have a Utilikilt on order for when I get home. There will not be photos here.

Anyway, back to other weird fashions....
