"Attention Gentlemen and Ladies, this is your Sky-Captain speaking,
All hands on deck! The glorious day is upon us at last!
We are ready to launch the newly constructed G.U.E.S.S. airship, "HMS Kelvin" this Sunday at the West End Festival Wonderland event at the Botanic Gardens. This event replaces the traditional fesitval parade with a much more elegant day of frivolities in the Botanic Gardens main park, by the wonderful Kibble Palace Victorian greenhouses. There will be music, entertainment, and of course, our airship!
We are calling all Steampunks from far and wide to come out to join us on the day (a good day to see folk from Edinburgh and farther afield if you are so inclined to join us.) We are ourselves a grand attraction of the show, and we shall gather in costume and patrol the park with our ship. The natives are apt to gawp a bit at how magnificent we are, please do not be alarmed, it is of course our solem duty to educate the less enlightened.
Everyone is encouraged to come out in all the costume you can, of any type (tribal, cattlepunk, Lolita, anything from full fantasy Neo-vitctorian to subdued period dress,even dieselpunk would not turned away *gasp*) Parasoles are most encouraged, as some of us would not care to compete with the sun to make ladies swoon.
But for those who are thinking 'This sounds lovely, but I'm no fashion plate. I have but humble workmans clothes', FEAR NOT!, even the unadorned may gladly join us, and might I add that for gents a simple buttoned shirt, rolled sleeves, trousers and a waistcoat are more than sufficient for a casual day out (I have many waistcoats I can lend if needed, simply ask). For ladies I am less help, I fear it is not putting clothing onto women that is my specialty.
The day shall commence at the botantic gardern main greenhouse (brown building) at 12:30am, and last until as late as 5pm.
and after that we'll probably go get pissed!
