Auckland Timetravelers' day
Just getting in early as I had a meeting today with the organiser.
And yes this is not just an event to wear your steampunk/historic costume/cosplay but there will be activities for making stuff!
I'll be doing two demos: fitting a Vicctorian bodice and drafting a skirt. Each one hour and they will be in the programme when it comes out.
They are centred around historical methods (c1880ish) but will be very adaptable for punking and adapting. And it means you will be able to have a unique base that no one will be able to play Guess the pattern with ;) A few links to my own website
I'll also have a display of my historic costumes as a timeline which I hope will give Ideas.
There will also be a parade of costumes for the attendees to watch or participate on. You will need to register at the gate. You can also register to enter to be judged (I'm one of the team of three).
There will also be kids activities, but I don't know how much ore I can say, so I will update as soon as there is a full programme.
So start using what this community has shared and get involved.
I shall try to be dressed to my persona Miss Verity Pride with bloomers and baldric. And maybe later a very pretty silk gown...
