Attempting to look Neovictorian

This is me attempting to look Neovictorian. Costume exhibitionism!

Just back from Dorian's Parlor, where I went with friends. I felt kinda popular there. I will have more to say about this sometime tomorrow, after some sleep.

The thing in my hand in the picture is the camera remote.


  1. If I were there, I would totally make you kiss my hand. :)

  2. Ozymandias, at least at a steampunk event, I normally bow and kiss the air above a woman's hand (in the traditional style) when we're introduced. You don't have to make me, you just have to give me your hand. :)

  3. Wow! Are there many steampunk events? The possibility of wearing such a costume speaks volumes in favor of more of them!

    I've always had this desire to someday be introduced somewhere by a butler. And to wear a top hat. Never happened (I even have trouble tying a tie knot), but it feels like something I would enjoy.

  4. The above comment was by me -- sorry for the mistake, this is not my usual computer.

  5. Asehpe, this is the first one other than a LARP that I've ever been too. There are a lot of conventions, I don't know if there are many monthly events like Dorian's.

  6. You loo0k totally handsome and historically gallant! :-)
