Steampunk Burlesque

Here's the crazy headpieces I made for a party - Pic by Angela Wells

What is Steampunk? defines steampunk “is set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of HG Wells and Jules Verne”.  I explain it not so detailed as that but as fashion trend taking Victorian clothing, adding the Industrial age with fantastical steam machines, with a twist of travel.

I started off trying to do a ‘Busty’s Lusty List of 10′  for steampunk but fell short a bit.  I have some great links to how to’s for costumes and some performances.  Can you add yours to get the list up to 10?

  1. Steampunk costumes
  2. Sparky Strange and Chassy VanKlass
  3. Some costume bits tutorial
  4. Louise Black on Etsy – great cameo corsets
  5. Miz Sharky
  6. Lovechild Boudoir on Etsy

    Not exactly burlesque, but… is the biggest steampunk forum and blog, there is also the Steamfashion group on livejournal –
    There are also several Steampunk conventions springing up in the States which are getting big!
    Scoundrelle’s Keep does custom corsetry and dressmaking: as does Blasphemina’s Closet and several other sites, and sellers on etsy. phew! and that’s just off the top of my head!
