The Kelham event showed just how wonderfully creative Steampunks are when it comes to their masks as well as their costumes, and there were some beautiful and very unusual masks on display. Even though we did not have to wear them all the time, just in the toilets, bar and at stalls, most people kept them on all day.
I wore mine all the time, hopefully this is the only time I will have to wear it but was very pleased how well it went with the outfit and I even got featured on the event Facebook page for having a lovely mask which was very nice 🙂
As usual there were some stunning outfits, lots of bright colours and detailed work having gone into all of them.
I particularly loved this sea themed outfit, Ellen and I are going for this type of theme for next year at Whitby.
It was nice to meet up with people from previous events, these in the above pictures are the people we met at Whitby Abbey.
We also met this lovely lady again,we first met her at Clumber during the WW2 event and then at Lincoln. She had a gorgeous bee hat and sunflower bustle.
I was very pleased with how my whole outfit came together, I wore the same purple skirt and top as at previous events .
I was also very pleased to find this fabulous little purple handbag the day before when we were charity shop browsing in Retford. How cute is this!
Ellen had a wonderful ringmaster outfit, she used the jacket she made for Steampunks in Space a couple of years ago, and a skirt adapted from a charity shop find.
The hat decoration was part of the same set of tunic fabric that I used from Bombay Stores.
This is one of my favourite pictures of her, even with the mask you can see her smiling!
James and Kerry looked equally lovely, James had a new waistcoat for the event, with matching mask. His Mum made these and the waistcoat is stunning, such beautiful work.
The hall itself is amazing, we are hoping to go to other events there. We didn’t get chance to go inside but had a lovely picnic just outside, using the new basket.
A wonderful chance to have fun and here’s to many more normal weekends in the future.
I hope that you have enjoyed the costumes, I will be back later in the week with an update on the knitting progress. Meanwhile, take care, stay safe and thanks for visiting.
