Steam comes to Palmerston North















I'm not generally a big fan of steampunk meets bellydance. There's something about the corseted neo-Victorian-with-wind-up-mechanical-bits that doesn't quite fit with the slinkyness of bellydance for me. Joy and Dianne made it work well though, I think mostly by sticking to the wind up toy idea, and largely dispensing with the corsets.

I need to assemble my Explorer outfit and get pix, but the skirt is off getting embroidered.
A friend got one of those computer aided sewing machines.

I 'spose that's OK then. As long as it has brass bits.

I didn't check under there. Isn't that rather private?

It's your skirt. If anyone's allowed to check underneath, its you...

What's funny about that is that a friend of mine has told me that the problem I have with finding a boyfriend is that I usually have bigger balls then the ones I've wound up with.
Brass ones.

Yes, yes there is. Plenty of videos on youtube, of greater or lesser degrees of accomplishment......
