Steam Punk, Corsets, and Such: Thinking on Halloween…
Every year I try to do something outside of the box and adventurous during the month of my birthday, striving to add something truly memorable to my stock of life adventures. My birthday is also in October – only the coolest month of the year! So my memorable pursuits naturally tend to extend into holiday festivities.
Halloween, the climax of the month, is the one day that I can totally play dress-up and have fun, no matter my age or status as “mom.” I think it just might be my favorite holiday.
As I’ve been working on my crochet spider webs and spider web patterns this year, I’ve also been preparing for my costume theme this year: Steam Punk.
I have always loved Tesla and gadgets, not to mention corsets, bustiers and cinchers. I don’t have a specific character in mind, but certainly a look that speaks to me. In my hunting around for costume ideas, these Etsy items really caught my eye.
I’m thinking that clockwork bra would be a great birthday present…..
