Symposium Session – Full-Figured Fashion

SES2015 Schedule Button 2

Full-Figured Fashion

Presented by Edwina Tweed

Full Figure FashionThink 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 shapewear, targeted focal points, proportion, pattern, & your best accessory: the proper attitude. Let the ladies of the HMAS Dauntless show you how to turn your ‘O’ shape into ‘Oh Wow’..!

We believe that the plus-size is underrepresented and therefore under-served in the Steampunk world. So many women say “Cute outfit, but *I* could never wear that…” We want to open ladies’ minds 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!


Commander Edwina Tweed

Edwina Tweed has been a Steampunk enthusiast for 5 years and a costumer for over 3 decades. Having switched tracks to more historical costuming has led to much research and a fascination with not only the outerwear, but what’s worn underneath as well as accessories, hairstyles and customs of the era.
