Lagenlook : Almost Steampunk

I nearly came undone curating this set of images from Pinterest. My aim was to show Lagenlook designs that harked back to the Victorian era. However, many of the more elaborate and fussier designs also fell into the category of Steampunk. It became harder and harder to separate the two. I just happen to love both equally.

I wanted Lagenlook pieces that could be worn to conventions such as Comic Con or SupaNova or similar, that were flowy and comfy but weren’t uber Victorian Steampunk. So, minimal trinkets and accessories, no pistols hidden up bloomers, no top hats or fascinators, no fob watches. But definitely kick-ass boots, low or high, or otherwise strappy Roman sandals.

And most definitely ruffles. Lots and lots of ruffles. And what’s Lagenlook without layers?

Maybe think of it as pared down Steampunk?
