Time to display some neo-Victorian industrial styles in the liveliest color of nature: green!
A few weeks ago I entered a drawing for a set of steampunk earrings on The Punkettes- a steampunk, dieselpunk, and clockpunk blog. And I won! w00t!
I received the earrings when I returned from my trip to South Carolina, and have enjoyed them several times so far- so lightweight and fun!
Also, while at the Monsters, Music and More charity event, there was an auction with all proceeds going to the charities for whom the event was run- the American Cancer Society and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. I played the part of Vanna White, showing off the various pieces in the auction- movie posters signed by cast members of the original version of The Night of the Living Dead, a samurai sword set, and paraphernalia from local undead loving group The Steel City Zombies.
Then this deliciously lusciously green coat came into my hands. And I couldn't let go.
So for $50 this baby was mine!
Made by Lady Moon Designs, an alternative clothing seamstress based in Australia, this gorgeous brocade coat seems t have been upcycled from something else- either unused brocade material or an actual coat. Either way, the craftsmanship is second to none and the detailing is amazing, especially with the accessories added on:
