Fopperies & Frivolities

A lady living in Philadelphia; an ex-pat, an occasional artist; an enthusiastic but unskilled cook; a vintage lover; an aspiring crafter. Things that make my heart flutter: top hats, old silver candlesticks, costumes, books, Victoriana, peacock feathers, masks, stockings, burlesque, feminism, retro pin-ups, kitsch, fantasy, sci-fi, and all manner of misfits and oddities.

I blog about my Russian heritage, steampunk, Sherlock Holmes (in his multiple modern variations), art, pretty clothes, pretty ladies, and whatever tv shows catch my fancy.

Great renditions of steampunk Supergirl and Batgirl by Mahmud Asrar.

I often see steampunk-dress versions of comic heroines that are completely impractical for the purpose of, well, superheroine-ing. I suppose here the bustle on Supergirl is a bit long (but then it seems let out—it can probably be bustled up more?), but overall these are really believable versions of what these ladies would wear in a steampunk universe.
