Historic Cotton Mills Art Studio in the River Arts District of Asheville A Cool Steampunk Circus Event

My friend Krista, talked about here & here, did the graphic design work for the Historic Cotton Mills Art Studio opening.

It was a steampunk circus theme with a big top that had a DJ & speakeasy bar.

Since there were so many separate artist rooms, I'm showcasing my fav room.
This one with many headdresses.  Winter is wearing a thrifted American Girl velvet coat with fancy ribbon bow and comparing her narwhal to the horned floral themed head pieces.


My favorite were these two:

Cozy little gypsy hang-out up there----you're welcome to join :)


So many glass pieces.

There were fire-dancers and grinder girls, as well as a balloon making clown.

Free peanuts, cotton candy, & popcorn!

More music inside----this band was so fun!

Grinder girls, sparks flyyy!

Free henna tattoos!  Coco Loco's:

Krista & Tommy!

LondonDaBridge's henna tattoo!

I'm wearing an 80s Victor Costa dress & vintage gloves I've had since HS, a borrowed tiny top hat headband, & a vintage torn velvet coat (not shown here).


Love & Light, 

Hooking up:

  3. A Steampunk Circus event? How fun it that? I would have loved to attend something like that. Loving those headpieces. And your dress and little top hat are fabulous!
