12 noon to 5 pm
Jericho Beach, Vancouver
Vancouverites for Steampunk would like to invite everyone to a Vintage-Costumed Day at the Seaside on Sunday August 16, 2015! Here is a map to find us! We will be on the sand at Jericho Beach – precise location will depend on where we can find an empty spot when I arrive. We will be to the West of the Concession stand, and to the East of Locarno Beach. There will also be a 10×10 shade tent which you will not fail to miss once it’s up, as it will be Union-Jack-bunting bedecked.Don your vintage-styled or steampunk beachwear and join us on Jericho Beach to enjoy a day of vintage summery seaside fun! You can select beachwear from any time between the mid-1800’s through the 1930’s. Spread the word to any costume-afficionados you know who might be keen for the excuse to try their hands at vintage beach wear! Keep in mind, if you’re worried, that, like now, it is always quite appropriate to also head to the Seaside in your “regular” period clothes – long dresses, skirts & shirtwaists, trousers and suspenders, etcetera. So steampunk, Victorian, Edwardian, ’20s or steampunk togs are also perfectly acceptable. Ladies, you can even come out in your bloomers & chemise!
I have created a photo album in the Facebook group specifically for resource photos etc.
Alas, I cannot arrange a charabanc to get everyone to the site, but I have chosen a site accessible by car and public transit. The # 4 bus will take you right nearby – get off at Wallace Street, the stop past the Alma Street stop.
Look for me in my smashing new get-up!
In the very unlikely event of inclement weather (constant rain) – I will post a cancellation notice on this website, on the Facebook event page and group page, and on twitter as @ClockworkDoor
