Airship crews, mad inventors and Gentlemen Adventurers will come to the rescue of historic Green Lawn Abbey in a display of brass, leather and clockwork amidst the stained glass and white marble. The evening highlight is a fashion show by The Alley Vintage & Costume and a display of jewelry and fine art by artisans that specialize in the Victorian science fiction aesthetic known as Steampunk. For those unfamiliar with the style, it is typified by the books of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells or movies and TV shows like League of Extraordinary Gentleman, Wild, Wild West and the latest version of Sherlock Holmes.
While not required, patrons of Steampunk Rescue are encouraged to dress in steampunk-style and a gift certificate will be awarded to the most inspired steampunk-costumed visitor of the evening. Need inspiration? Visit the website www.thealleystore.com. Delicious finger foods provided.
