Gail Carriegr Wears a Dark Garden Alyscia Corset with Pencil Skirt and Patchwork Boots for WorldCon 2018 in San Jose


This is probubly the outfit I got the most complements on in person. The internet liked the polka dot one the best.

It works best in person, I think.

Gail Carriger in Red Steampunk Pin-Up At San Diego Comic Con 2017


For the Saturday of SDCC, Fashionable Reader, I wore what I'm calling my red pin-up steampunk.

This is turning into a new favorite outfit. I also had on gloves but I forgot them in the photo, and a parasol for when I went outside.

Gail Carriger in 1950s Retro Red Pedal Pushers and Leopard


For the second day of San Diego Comic Con I wore my coolest outfit (literally and figuratively). For this one I went pure pin up.

I like red and leopard together, but then I love red, so... Leopard is so very versatile.

Here is another way to do Leopard, although, not in Canada. (One gets mistaken for local comedic talent, as it turns out.)

And here is the last time I wore red and leopard together, on the Sword & Laser podcast & video.

Right, now where was I? Oh yes... Comic Con.

Outfit Breakdown

  • Turban style hat. I've gotten really into these lately and am planning on buying more (I already have red, white, and leopard). They come in quite a range of colors, styles, fabrics, and prices, this one is $8. I want to try one of the ones with a bow next.
  • I paired it with a leopard flower hair clip (similar $8).
  • Steampunk earrings (similar $17).
  • Red sunnies $9 (they seem out of the red, but the red and black are killer). 
  • I'm wearing the Bumbersnoot necklace from Badali jewelry that they SOLD OUT at Comic Con. There are more on their website, $23-48 depending on material. (I'm currently giving one away to a lucky winner via my newsletter, The Chirrup.)
