Steampunk Wedding Tuxedo

A dear friend of mine is soon to be wed was talking about the relative ease her groom had in selecting his wedding attire when compared to herself. This conversation started me thinking about what a Steampunk gentleman might wear to his wedding. There’s only so much one can theoretically do with a tuxedo, right?


Alright, gentlemen. Allow me to tell you something. This tux is hot, and that’s saying something from me because I generally don’t care for light colored formal wear. I’m sure that this dapper coat would make all the ladies who witnessed you wearing it swoon.

The gorgeous tuxedo coat is a one of a kind creation by ManicManx, who specializes mostly in frock coats with a Victorian edge. As this coat is already made, not something on commission, do make sure to check your personal measurements before ordering this garment. It also might be a good idea to ask ManicManx if she has any left over fabric that the coat was cut from to see if she might make you matching tux slacks… I don’t know if she has any or not… it’s just an idea!

You can learn more about ManicManx though her website and blog. For more pictures of her previous work, visit her Flickr account here.

Steam Driven Fashion: Clockwork Couture

Today, one of my best friends and I were discussing the possibilities of my going to a prom in Minnesota for one of my MMORPG’s guild mates as his date. My friend wondered what I could possibly wear to such an event without looking like a puffy princess.

And that is when I introduced her to Clockwork Couture.

This boutique seems to have an unending vision of what constitutes Steampunk clothing and is an excellent option for those who are not particularly gifted in the modification of clothing for that Victorian flair. It also can provide the foundations for an amazing Steampunk wardrobe, which makes scouring through thrift shops a bit more focused.

I love their ideas. And, while the dress that I’m planning to wear to this possible prom isn’t sold through them, the shoes most certainly are. Take a look at these babies:

Love them! I can’t wait to order these and show up to a prom in them!
