Presented by Edwina Tweed

Think you can’t wear the Steampunk look because you’re not young & thin? Think again!

We will demonstrate how to dress a voluptuous body using proportion, pattern, color, targeted focal points, & your best accessory: the proper attitude.

We believe that the plus size is underrepresented and therefore under-served in the Steampunk world. So many women say “Great outfit, but *I* could never wear that…”

We want you to be proud of those curves & open your mind to the possibilities that having ample assets provide: how to play up or spotlight those *blessings* while downplaying or outright *hiding* what you’re not pleased about, and how to dress that for maximum WOW factor

Edwina Tweed has been a Steampunk enthusiast since 2009 and a costumer for over three decades. Switching to more historical costuming has led to a fascination with not only the outerwear, but what’s worn underneath as well as accessories, hairstyles and customs of the era.
