I was approached By Thea who suggested I check it The Steampunk meeting at Rose & Crown (based on the way I was dressed.) Then James gave me info to get in touch without the Assemblage.
I love every aspect of it that I have heard about so far, but the unlimited use of imagination, the dress & association are at the top.
I have a beautiful black top hat (I wear for everyday use), A white Derby, A wide rim hat with tool train. A 3/4 length fitted black coat. A short white with roses under bust corset and a silk Royal blue over bust corset. Black high sued boots with silver buttons up the sides. As well as several tops. (All but 3 pieces acquired before I knew what Steampunk was.)
I love the idea of going to Ribtor and such places to look for unique items as a group as well as costume & antique shops. Social get-togethers. I guess I'm pretty much open to most kinds of events.
Hi I am just learning about myself in this remarkable aspect of my life. I am a therapist, writer, have a degree in mind sciences and love the hug of a good corset.
They are awesome & so helpful. Thank you again Caroline for taking me. Also to Andrew 'Doc' for the ride downtown afterwards. Looking forward to the next event for sure!
