It’s by no means compulsory to dress up at White Mischief – we welcome every type of mischief maker, no matter how they are attired. Still, we encourage everyone to enter into the spirit of the occasion and past shows have seen some fabulous outfits: everything from giant pandas to steampunk rocketmen. It needn’t be expensive: imagination costs nothing!
This time round the theme is “Around the World in 80 Days”, again drawn from a Jules Verne novel, allowing those of you with a love of Victoriana to indulge your steampunk fantasies. For everyone else there is a whole globe’s worth of inspiration to make use of. India, Africa, China, Japan, Mexico, Polynesia, the USA, Ireland, Scotland, Holland, France, Germany, Indonesia, Thailand, South America, Egypt, the Middle East, Brazil, Spain… literally any country could become the basis for a look. Check inside for videos, photos and links not only to our articles on steampunk but also links to our huge directory of London’s best second hand, charity, vintage, retro and antique clothing shops – plus information on costume rental locations, accessories providers and hair salons.
