Gail Carriger Black & White Check Pedal Pushers at Phoenix Comic Con 2018


I have a long and contentious relationship with capris (or in this case pedal pushers). It's well documented in this blog.

I've settled on them being OK, but for me only with high heels. Rather like pencil skirts and dresses.

So here I am on the final day of Phoenix Comic Fest in my favorite pair.

I paired them with a knitted octopus pinned to my head, some black & white accessories, and my new teapot bag!

Gail Carriger Wears Silver Sparkle 1950s Cocktail Dress at Phoenix Comic Con 2018


This is one of my very favorite dresses, Gentle Reader, and a marker of why I love real vintage so much. The details and the design.

I love a sparkle cocktail dress. Just love it. I can't remember what vintage shop I bought this from, but is sure is a winner. It is a bit low in the front, even after reduction, so that's why I have the silver flower pin at the decolletage.

Gail Carriger In White & Wine At Steampunk Worlds Fair 2017


Perhaps I'm being inspired by Wonder Woman, I don't know for certain but I wore this outfit the last day of the convention.

I call this my circus corset, because it feels like I ought to be ring mistress in it. It's from Dark Garden (like all my others) and was a customized fabric Christmas special based on their corselette style. I wear it all the time. It's probably my most used steampunk corset because it travels so well and is so very comfortable.

Outfit Details:

* I'm wearing the Circus over a little white chiffon dress I picked up at Ross when I was going through a summer is hot Greek phase (similar $19).
* Wine velvet caplet meets shrug with flutter sleeves bought on sale from a fancy shop in some resort town over a decade ago (similar $40)
* Octopus on burgundy lace necklace & earring set made fro me by a fan (similar in black $11)
* Crochet octopus hair bob I got in Alaska last month, find similar here.
* Soft brand gold sandals with big flower, much beloved, no longer available

Sorry I got these shoes years ago and haven't seen ones like it or even similar. Also I really want a hair thing that's like that gold leather flower.
