Eastbourne Steampunk Festival 2018
About the Steampunk festival in Eastbourne
These photos were all from a really great annual Steampunk Festival event held on the seafront at Eastbourne, East Sussex in September 2017.
Steampunk fashion is such an incredibly varied collection of styles, it is extremely rare to see two people at a Steampunk event in the same costume as there is no one correct costume. There were so many really great costumes and amazing clothing, from complete, complicated Steampunk style dresses with top hat, corset, boots and goggles, to quite normal outfits with just Steampunk goggles added.
This event is all outdoors, which is risky, most people won’t wear fancy costumes out in the rain, but they have always been very lucky when I have been there.
I have been to this great free event a few times and it’s always been good, so would recommend it, especially if you are new to Steampunk or just curious and want to find out more. Steampunk can be something you dress up for once a year like a fancy dress party or it can be a regular thing you do every weekend (there are lots of other great events), some people even live the lifestyle every day and take it extremely seriously.
