After Christmas Sale Steampunk Necessity Shopping List by Gail Carriger

  • Christmas Tree Skirts = shawls, short skirts, foundations for bustles, cannibalize for trim and tassels.
  • Decorations = sprayed, painted, otherwise modified to become valves, switches, cane tops, jewelry or other prop style parts
  • Little motors that turn trees or run trains = other, more exciting motorized objects
  • Christmas Lights: Need I say more?
  • Scarves, brocade table runners = Gentleman's cravats or ladies sashes.
  • Fake flowers, leaves, small decorations = hat decoration
  • Wrapping decorations particularly the bows = bow ties or dress/bustle skirt decorations.

 Christmas tree skirt as a, well, skirt

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