You might think that Steampunk fashion is uncomfortable and not practical, but I don’t. It’s only the corset look that is. Get rid of the corsets in favour of elasticated belts and you can wear the style comfortably.
You may not be in a work environment where you have total freedom to wear what you like, but I do because I work at home. There’s nothing to stop you going all out and being creative with your clothing when you’re not at work though. I find myself having some lovely conversations with people in the supermarket who enjoy my choice of clothing.
Here’s me in one of my favourite outfits. The skirt has an elastic waist and the top is stretch fabric, so it’s very comfortable.
The hat and bag are my own creations. See all the hats I have available at the moment in my Etsy Shop.
