SteamPunk

I love SteamPunk! I think it has an incredibly equalizing property that most cosplay doesn’t have.  What I mean is that when I dress up as Batgirl, no matter how much I love Barbra Gordon and how much I know about her, it never feels like it’s enough when I go to shows.  Someone will inevitably start talking to me about her and there will come a time in the conversation where I start smiling and nodding.  And I know a lot about her.  It just never feels like enough.  When I wear my Dalek dress, I will run into another Whovian who will put my knowledge to shame.  It’s not that I’m not obsessive.  Ask my friends, I am a constant fountain of weird nerdy babble, I make nerdy clothes that I can wear to the office, but I’m obsessive all over the place.

This is where SteamPunk is wonderful.  SteamPunk looks cool and it doesn’t have a huge backstory I need to know to wear the clothes.  I understand the concept, steam powered engines, we never split the atom, futuristic Victorian style.  All of these things are awesome.  Also, I have yet to mean a NerdGirl who doesn’t like any excuse to wear a corset.

  1. There is this myth out there that corsets are uncomfortable or even painful. Its not true. It just means someone is either laced up waaaaaay to tightly or they have a super cheap corset with no support that was made for 10 cents in China. If I could get away with wearing a corset every day without it being socially awkward and probably marking me as super eccentric or crazy, I would do it just because I love them.
