Haworth Steampunk Weekend

The other weekend we toddled over to Haworth Steampunk Weekend, it was a late decision as I came across it on the internet only the day before. Haworth is near and we visit regularly because it’s such a nice place to go. Steampunk style is one of those things where you know it when you see it and I really fancied seeing lots of it.

We weren’t disappointed, people put so much effort into their outfits!

It’s kind of a cross where Victoriana meets fantasy, meets engineering, meets explorer all kind of mixed together and goggles are de rigeur my dear. Above all, it’s fun and that’s rather appealing.

Not a great photo below as the gent was moving at speed away from me but I wanted you to see what is on his back – a converted tennis racket – ingenious!

These ladies are part of the Four Hundres Roses dance troupe. I thought they looked fantastic.

Notice the man on the right below – he’s half armoured!

I’m not one for fancy dress but some of this quite appealed to me. The huge dress I could do without but explorer style, now you’re talking.
