In search of the Victorian.
This is a journal of my quest; to turn the back room of an Arkansas frame house into a 19th century study. A 19th century, Time-traveler's, Steampunk, Gothic vampire's study. With knobs on. And to do this on a pocket-money budget. I'm trying to get to that piece of roadside furniture before you paint it white. I'm going to make make tassels and tapestries and tea-trays and recreate gloomy, Gothic London in Arkansas' brilliant sunshine. Wish me luck...

Steampunk on Sunday: Invitation to the Ball
We all want to go to the Ball because we all know we're Cinderella. We're all left with the dirty work while others go off and have fun and sometimes, we want to dress up pretty, to be Transformed and enjoy ourselves, too.
So, you have your invite to a Masquerade, a Steampunk Ball, a Dickensian Christmas or a Vampire LARP and you want to know what to wear. You start here. It's rather long, but it does have everything you need and I've tried to locate all the mentioned links for you.
