I'm sure you would never wear your gadgets to work but do you dress in your victorian/edwardian style clothing to your job? I'm sure for men a vest and nice slacks would be very appealing to an…Continue

"I cannot really go too Victorian at work, largely because it is a very jeans-and-T-shirts sort of place (I inspect dvds for a well-known rental-via-mail business). I always wear long sleeves, partially because I'm cold, partially to cover the…"

Prof. Black replied to Katherine's discussion Steampunk in the workplace
"I work at home, but there is the possibility of future speaking engagements, in which I fully intend to dress up for. It goes quite well with my profession, and I think I could "get away with" more because of it."

"I own several Utilikilts and generally wear one daily... until I get to work. I work in a large commercial bakery, in the production department. The one time I bought a white Workmans and wore it to work, I lasted about five minutes before the…"

"There are quite a few companies that have been making work clothes since the late 1800s that one can buy from, like Carhartts or Levis or Dickies.  Up here in Alaska just about every clothing store carries carhartts and/or levis and/or dickies."

"I have worn vests and a pocketwatch since the late 60's I guess that's loosely Steampunk. Does that count?"

"I work at a tattoo shop and can generally get away with wearing whatever as long as it doesn't get in my way and I don't mind the possibility of getting ink all over it. What I've found works well is to dress on the more utilitarian…"

"I wrote about this very thing in my blog.   I work as a baker in my mom's shop, so what I wear is always covered up by a big black apron.  One time I wore my aviator's cap and goggles to work in lieu of my usual hair net.  I…"

Profile Information

Introduction
Greetings! My name is Katherine and I am relatively new to Steampunk. Though I have had interests that skirt the Steampunk scene. My parents are Luthiers, my father being a master of the art of bow making (violin, viola, cello, bass), so I had the privilege of growing up with the classic arts. I often attended symphonies, plays, ballets, concertos and the occasional opera.

I currently live in the haunted attic of my parents' 1880's East Lake style Victorian home while I attend school for BioScience Technology. I am currently working on extracting latex from dandelion roots. Oh, the wonders of science! I very much enjoy the Victorian style science fiction, my preference often being in written form rather than motion pictures. I do dabble a bit with the study of Thanatology, something I find absolutely fascinating. Don't let that scare you, it is not an obsession just a fascination. Its perfectly harmless.

Soon, I should be able to attend the various events in my area, after the appropriate preparations have taken place. I look forward to my first voyage on an airship, it is something that I have been wanting to do for some time.

I do love a good adventure...
