Steampunk Fashion From World Steam Expo 2012 with Gail Carriger

What my room looks like moments after arriving. Costume explosion!

Gail delighted to meet her own character alive and in person.

A close up of the lovely Alexia cosplay.

With fans on Friday night. For opening night I chose my fancy iridescent outfit, the one with the tea died blouse.

I also me a very Ivy hat. It reminded me very much of the work of Lilly Daché.

Steampunk parasol!

Speaking of parasols, I received this lovely parasol pin gift.
There was also octopus nail art!

The beautiful Miss World Steam 2012.

And just for fun: girls in mustaches!

Many more blogs to come, I'm running with a back log right now.

Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.

  1. HI! Miss Carriger, what do you think of this corset: http://draculaclothing.com/steampunk-octopus-corset-p-1355.html Isn't it simply prettyful? With octopus decoration!!!

    I would love to buy it, but I don't have anyone close to me who can tie corsets properly - or are willing to learn, and I can't tighten it as much as I want to by myself... Besides; should I ever dare to just buy one online, without trying it on?
