I saw these posted to a steampunk community and thought they were fantastic. (1, 2) This isn't the first time I've been envious of those liviing in NYC. I've always wanted to learn to sew and make costumes but wow, these outfits make me want to learn RIGHT NOW.

Oh my lord. I would LOVE to see that! Twelfth Night is actually my favourite of all Shakespeare's comedies, and maybe overall. I love Viola, and Orsino is such a maudlin fool, and I love when they play up his confusion at his apparent attraction to a young man.

Those costumes are fantastically drool-worthy.

I'm embarassed to say I have yet to read Twelfth Night but based on your review I think I'll grab it the next time I'm in the mood for Shakespeare. My favorite is The Taming of the Shrew. I saw a hilarious rendition of it for an intro to theatre class many years ago that I still giggle at once in a while when I think back to it.

Those costumes are amazing right? I would love to have a wardrobe like that. One of these days I'm going to take the plunge and learn. There are so many cool crafty things I want to get into that I don't know where to start.

I know how to sew, but I'm very, very lazy about it. I've made full length gowns and renaissance faire costumes, and all kinds of other random crap. I should totally try my hand at steampunk.

There is a really, really good film version of Twelfth Night. It was set in an era that wasn't quite Victorian, but somewhere near there. It had an excellent cast, Imogen Stubbs, Helena Bonham Carter, Ben Kingsley, Richard E Grant, and others I can't remember off the top of my head.
