Expressing your steampunk-style is simpler than you might think.

Be bold with your clothing, hairstyling, jewellery and makeup. The trick is to remember that Steampunk should be a mixture of fashion trends from different historical periods. Include some kind of contemporary element to your outfit, or try wearing a modern gown, and including unique vintage elements into your accoutrements. Most importantly, don’t be afraid to get creative! Steampunk culture is about being proud, and uniquely individual.

We encourage guests to dress the part. You never know, you may just go home with a little something to help accentuate your next outfit!
