Gail Folsom dressed in Victorian costume poses as part of a group photo for the Jules Verne inspired "Steampunks" at Comic-Con International 2009 convention held in San Diego Saturday, July 25, 2009.
New old stories, re-visionary fashion, and faux fab -- history is rewritten this Friday.
FAUX FAB FOUR: No, they aren't John, Paul, George, and Ringo, but Hard Night's Day is a dead ringer for the Fab Four sound. Add their puesdo-Beatlemania to an already fun night at Lone Star Park, mix in select beers for just a buck, and you'll have a winning bet...as long as you don't put your money down on Dover. 7 to 10 p.m.
STEAM SEAMS: If you haven't caught on to the Steampunk fashion scene, the 9 p.m. "Freestyle Fashion Ball" at Panoptikon in Deep Ellum will show you the Victorian-styled, industrial-revolution inspired hybrids that mix metal, lace, and fantasy fashion. All proceeds from the show benefit Children's Charity.
BEFORE 'THE CITY': Candace Bushnell's latest, "The Carrie Diaries," highlights Carrie Bradshaw's life before "Sex and the City." We don't doubt that SATC fans are going to want to pick it up to read about the earlier adventures of the columnist and fashionista, but there is extra incentive to make it out to Neiman Marcus in NorthPark -- Bushnell will be there from 6 to 8 p.m. to sign copies for folks getting Carrie-d away.
