Promoting Steampunk Locally
Individual events (more than are detailed here) can be found posted separately under the category of “Events”, and our Calendar is updated live.
Jaunt to the Seaside
Sunday August 16th, 2015 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!
Don your vintage-styled or steampunk beachwear and join us on Jericho Beach to enjoy a day of vintage summery seaside fun! Unlike the United Kingdom, I think we can promise relatively warm waters! (No freezing by the North Sea!). 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, it was also quite appropriate in all these time-periods to also head to the Seaside in your long dresses, trousers and suspenders, etcetera. So steampunk, Victorian, Edwardian, ’20s or steampunk togs are also perfectly acceptable. Ladies can even trundle out in their bloomers and chemise! (Shocking!)
I have created a photo album in the Facebook group specifically for resource photos etc (see full event posting).
Alas, I will not be able to arrange a charabanc to get everyone to the site, but Jericho Beach is accessible by car and public transit (# 4 bus takes you right there – get off at Wallace, the stop past Alma).
