At the 7:00 p.m. performance of SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE BAKER STREET IRREGULARS on Saturday, October 18, families are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite Steampunk attire to get in the spirit of the play’s Victorian London setting. Those in costume may have their photo taken in the lobby upon arrival. Attending our Steampunk Night in costume adds another layer of fun for the whole family!

For women, a blouse, skirt, shoes, and lots of accessories is the basic way to complete your Steampunk look. Ankle-length and almost ankle-length skirts are the historically correct choice but skirts can also reach the mid-calf or knee. Basic accessories that would also work well include belts, hats, coats/jackets, and antique jewelry.
For men, a shirt with pants and shoes would work fine. Shirts usually have buttons that run either fully or half fully down the front, and sport a variety of collars. Men should stay away from jeans, tennis shoes, and sandals. Basic accessories that would look great for men include suspenders, vests, coats/jackets, and hats. If you’re looking to go all out, you might even consider a traditional kilt instead of pants.
