10 Years Ago: Machina Nostalgica

Fashion Show Machina Nostalgica
Ten years ago I was allowed to be part of the Machina Nostalgica, the first German steampunk exhibition in the Kreismuseum Prinze├čhof in Itzehoe!
I got to meet so many wonderful, creative and talented people and host my first opening weekend fashion show.
At this point a big thank you again to my great, beautiful models Raja, Jasmin, Josepha, Lea and Swenja, and of course also to the hairdresser Marlies and for the invisible but indispensable help in the background to my dear friend Sandra!

The small film contribution to the opening weekend can still be found at: Steampunk Exhibition Machina Nostalgica.

It was a wonderful time and I like to think back on it often :-)

Reminiscing… yours

Machina Nostalgica in Kiel

Machina Nostalgica in Kiel
The Machina Nostalgica has landed in Kiel :-)

Horatius Steam and Phonepunk continued the exhibition that startet in Itzehoe last year. There was a great opening week-end with a Museum Night on friday, workshops on saturday and the grand opening today on sunday.
The location of the event is the Maschinenmuseum in Kiel and they could not have found a better place for it ;-)

It was a wonderful week-end!
And therefore I want to show some pictures from the grand opening today, made by NeedMoreCoffeeMan.
More pictures from the other days can be found here.

Yours,
JessiCat

Finisage

Machina Nostalgica
The Machina Nostalgica closed its doors for the last time last weekend. There was a Finisage and we all took down our exhibits together.
Therefore my closet is bursting with bustles once more, although I left my Time Lady with all matching accessory behind because it was sold by auction at the exhibition.

It was a fantastic experience and I got to know a lot of wonderful people :-)

And now to new projects!

Yours,
JessiCat

This fashion show is about my competitioner’s creations, who are the wonderful ladies of Steampunk Decadence.

My First Fashion Show

Fashion Show for the Machina Nostalgica
At the garden party for the grand opening of the Machina Nostalgica it was the time:
I did my first Fashion show :-)

And of cause I don’t want to keep the pictures from you.

I have to thank my beautiful models Raja, Jasmin, Josepha, Lea and Swenja, my great hair-girl Marlies and for everything else my dear friend Sandra!
I do hope, that this was not our last fashion show ;-)

Yours,
JessiCat

Machina Nostalgica: Grand Opening

Kreismuseum Prinze├čhof
The time has come: This weekend is the grand opening of the Machina Nostalgica!

There you will find three of my bustle dresses: the Copper Dress, the Dark Victorian Gown and the Time Lady, each one with all accessories.

The Time Lady with accessory is for auction there!
So if you want to own a JessiCat-Original, this is one of the rare chances, because I almost exclusively sew these outfits just for myself ;-)

On sunday, the 18th of August there will be a garden party at the museum as The Festival of Crazy Inventions where I will present five or six of my other outfits in a little fashion show :-)

So maybe we will meet in Itzehoe this weekend!

Yours,
JessiCat
