This Saturday, join up with steampunk aficionados, alternative-fashion mavens, and those with an interest in the mysterious at the Eye of Horus to celebrate renowned Minnesota tarot expert Barbara Moore's newest work. The Steampunk Tarot, created by Moore and artist Aly Fell, is a kit that combines Moore's knowledge with Fell's imaginative illustrations. The release party will feature live music by Pirates of the Dreamtime. KMKDesigns, headed by designer Sheridyn McClain, will showcase Victorian-inspired looks on models throughout the evening. Local steampunk jewelry darling Kristen Berwald will host a Bionic Unicorn trunk show at the event, showing off designs that give a unique spin on gizmos, gears, flowers, and nature. Be sure to come in your best steampunk fashion, as Berwald will be giving away a gift certificate to the best-dressed guest. Not acquainted with the finer aspects of the look? Combine Industrial Revolution chic with some Victorian flair, add some greatest hits from a crazy inventor's closet, and you should be there. Or, just check out some of the recently revamped Wild West or Sherlock Holmes movies for some sartorial references. Then, get out that top hat and pocket watch, and head over to the Eye of Horus for a truly enlightening experience with some of the Twin Cities' most imaginative folks. (Photo by globalreset)
