If you’re wanting to go around the steampunk world in almost 80 ways, this fashion show is not one you want to miss.

The Welcome Bay Lions and Steampunk Tauranga are collaborating to put on an evening of colour and shenanigans at the Greerton RSA on Saturday, July 20.

Steampunk Tauranga member Lindsey Morgan, or in the steampunk world better known as Lady Hannah Dashery Buckle, says it is going to be a great evening with local groups coming together.

“The profits from the show will be used to support community groups.

“The Lions are organising the ticket sales, the music, sound tech, off stage, and we are doing the performance. The Lions are working tirelessly behind the scenes, and the Greerton RSA are hosting and catering for the show.

“It is a wonderful harmony of things.”

Lindsey says steampunk enthusiasts from all over the north island are travelling to take part in the show.

“We have people from Paeroa, the north of Auckland, Thames, Waihi, Katikati, Athenree, some from Hamilton to strut their stuff.

“It’s a collaboration of a lot of interesting people.”

Andria Goodliffe or Inconsequentia Stitchneedles, who is another avid member of Steampunk Tauranga, says fashion show goers can expect the unexpected.

“There will be a lot of entertainment, colour and people strutting their stuff. In the ticket, goers will also get their first drink and a light supper, so there will be entertainment and they will be fed.”

Lindsey says it is not only a fashion show; she describes it as a riot of colour and shenanigans.

“There will be singing, dancing, some skits, we’ve got a photo booth.”

Tickets for the Welcome Bay Lions Steampunk show are $30 and can be purchased at Robyn’s Cottage in Greerton or at the House of Science’s new address on Cameron Road opposite Tauranga Boys’ College. 

The show is taking place at the Greerton RSA on Saturday, July 20, and doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
