Love kawaii art & culture but can’t get to Japan?

Sydneysiders can go to TAP Gallery in Darlinghurst, where as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival, the Kawaii Girls Art & Pussy Portraits is on display until 22 September. (And get your mind out of the gutter; there are a lot of cat portraits, OK?)

As you can see, the works all have a playful character, a sweetness and cuteness that are the heart of kawaii.

Sydney Steampunk Symposium

Yesterday was a big day for the Sydney Fringe Festival – and for Steampunk!!

I attended the Steampunk Symposium at the Enmore Theatre (conveniently located 10 minutes walk from my house) and had a most splendid time!! I was quite astonished at the amount of effort patrons went to, both in their attire and their inventions and displays.  Firstly, my own attire – I went more as a steamship tinkerer or traveller, rather than as an elegant steam lady.

And now for my esteemed fellow steampunkers, whom I met on the street before I got to the theatre:

There were airship pirates and adventurers with steam-powered jetpacks

   

Sorry this one is blurred but they had GREAT costumes:

  

There were lovely ladies

     

Dashing steam dandies

    

There were lots of fascinating stands with artefacts and items for sale:

There was even a Steampunk R2D2 and radiogram!

   

There was also entertainment in the form of song, mime, burlesque, globe sorcering and more…

Or one could just wander around and take photos with the steam contraptions.

And that was merely the START of my night, as after this I went home and changed into gothy lolita gear for alternative fashion show Lunarmorph. Coming up next!
