The Steampunk hidden circus was bloody brilliant. I'll make a proper post later when I find the cable to download pics from my camera but basically I just got about 6 hours of quality entertainment for £5! I'm not entirely sure how the acts were related to steampunk but it was close enough. I think the suit was the right thing to wear, there were people there with jeans and t-shirts and people there with tuxes and top hats and people with highly elaborate steampunky costumes involving feathers, gears and goggles. There were a surprising number of people with bowler hats and an enjoyable number of girls in corsets. I'm glad I made a bit of an effort there. It was hard because the urge for me is always to dress nondescript (that's that social anxiety kicking in again I think).
I went on my own because I had no idea what to expect and anybody I invited would end up coming from far away for something unknown but I wish I'd brought someone along. It was an amazing night.

Just saw Coraline and Wolverine. Two ever so slightly different movies.

Coraline is amazing. It's one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. spoilers )

I also saw Wolverine. It was pretty good as big action films go. Spoilers )

When I told people I was going to go to a Steampunk Hidden circus the first thing everyone asked was “what does that entail” often followed by “and how will you find it?”

I had no expectations except that ....more wittering and some photos below cut )
