Log in

It is the summertime. The time has come for us to escape the stifling heat of the cities, not to mention the choking fumes of the Industrial Revolution..

To the country! To the GARDEN!

But since we're only that rich in our fantasies, we'll have to escape locally.. and locally shall we do so, at the US Botanic Garden in Washington, DC! http://www.usgb.gov/

A Stroll in the Garden
US Botanic Garden, Washington, DC
Sunday, July 31, 2011
2:00PM - 5:00PM

Suggested Dress: Victorian, Edwardian, Jazz-Age, Rococo, Regency, Steampunk, Dieselpunk, Neo-Victorian, Gothic Victorian, New Romantic, Semi-Formal

I look forward to seeing your amazing styles, but, most of all, your even more amazing presence among us, as we stroll the garden at our country manors.. in our minds. ;)

Spreading the word

It's a bit far to drive for DC area folks, but I figure there might be a few who'd be interested in this event.



If you're on Facebook, you can sign up here. Otherwise, go to the DVLGS website and sign up there.

The event is free, though donations are certainly appreciated. Advanced registration is required so adequate support can be arranged.

Event Reminder!

Is everyone ready for the Cherry Blossom Festival? - L. K. Pendragon

Before you embark upon the Steampunk Cherry Blossom Walk and Lantern Lighting Ceremony, come and dine in elegance with us at the Victorian Cherry Blossom Picnic, Sunday April 3, 2011, 12:30PM until 2:30PM!

Dress: Victorian, Neo-Victorian, Edwardian, Jazz-Age, Rococo, Regency, Imperial, Steampunk, Dieselpunk, Gothic Victorian, Semi-Formal, Asian-influenced dress a plus!

What to bring: Consider this like the "Cemetery Potluck", except in the spring instead of fall.. bring blankets, silverware, glassware, and small snack items (especially if your name is [info]ladyaelfwynn.. hehe).

We will locate the best possible spot for our picnic and hang there..

Afterwards Amber Dionne will be hosting a Steampunk Walk and Lantern Lighting Ceremony starting at 2:30 until 5:30; consequently, the picnic will only be from 12:30pm until 2:30, but she ensured that we are free to "crash" her walk with our combined elegance and make it a grand old time!

Come one and all to dine amidst beauty.. not just our own ;)

More info..

Psyche Corp. is a cybersteam music conglomerate seeking to combine art, fashion, dance, and science within the framework of a technomythological world of life-extension and virtual reality servers full of wonderful nightmares. Specializing in an unique genre often described as dark Victorian fairytale science fiction, the band itself is named after a dream manufacture group from the future where widespread neural implants have allowed people to jack their nerve endings directly into the internet and download dreams. As a performance group, Psyche Corporation has at various times incorporated robot exhibitions, steel origami cranes, contortion, corsets, flashlights, and old radios. The music spans genres; a recent song has mixed tribal singing with classical piano while embedding the DNA of deadly polio virus into its percussion.

To get an idea of how our music sounds, here's one of our songs, Institute, behind the cutCollapse )

Photo locations

Howdy,

I just moved to Baltimore a few months ago and I was wondering if anyone knew of some interesting indoor or outdoor locations for a photo shoot in the Baltimore or DC area?

Thanks,
