Steampunk Soiree

I visited another land this past weekend.

                                             A land few people my age might consider traveling.

The land of STEAMPUNK.

Steampunk is a relatively new term coined in the 1980s to describe a fantasy world that echoes elements from the Victorian era and industrialization. 

There were Steampunk fashions.

And installations by local artists. 

The opening was held in the sculpture gallery of our local museum, 
a wonderfully off-beat combination. 

Attendees were encouraged to dress accordingly. Some were fairly sedate. 

Others really embraced the opportunity.

And others seemed born for the part.

The old gallery probably hadn't seen an evening like this in years. 

I had a wonderful time, but perhaps other reviews were mixed. 


  1. This is a great way to have fun...dress up!

  2. I've heard the term and not given it much thought. Of course the clothing is fabulous, the beer seems wonderful,and oh, that cashmere shawl over the old gent's arm.

  3. My daughter Lynn from loves Steampunk. I've never really understood what Steampunk is. I will have to have her look at your post!

    1. It really can be a world of its own. The creativity of it is fun.

  4. It was quite an evening. My favorite was the dignified man obviously well into his 70s who spent the night in swim goggles.


Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think.
