Passionate About Purple

15 comments Leave a comment

In today’s post we are taking a look at some to die for pieces.  They all just so happen to be the same gorgeous color; purple. Besides browsing fantastic outfit inspiration, we are learning all about purple and hopefully surprise you with a bit of fun purple-trivia along the way.  If this is your favorite color you are in for a real treat. 

Royal Fashion 

Have you ever heard purple is the color of royalty? I’m here to tell you; it’s true. Back in the Byzantine Empire only the most important imperial rules wore this lovely hue. The Holy Roman Empire also used purple to signify royalty. If that isn’t enough evidence ask Japan. They associate purple with both aristocracy and the Emperor.

Feeling a bit regal but you haven’t quite locked down that European prince yet? I’ve got a few fashion ideas to hold you over.  Until you get your own purple coronation outfit. Take a look at this first piece.

This new arrival to the store is my absolute favorite. It’s soft, delicate, and just looking at it makes me feel like a queen. The mauve-purple tone is unique and creates versatile options for styling. It features a side zipper and back lacing. The satin fabric lets it feel as pretty as it looks. A pair of black skinny jeans or an A-line skirt would look amazing with this halter overbust corset. Throw a blazer and some sparkly earrings on then sit back and get ready for some royal attention.

If you want to add a bit of regal flare to your wardrobe, but can’t decide how, try these sheer purple thigh-highs. The pretty lace bands will keep them in place. Show off your legs with these subtle sexy tights.

Color Psychology

There is a whole field of advertising science dedicated to figuring out what us consumers think when we see a certain color. The field of color psychology is fascinating. Research shows that specific groups of people respond to color differently.

Have you ever been on a website that had totally conflicting neon colors and honestly you just couldn’t stand sticking around to see what they offered? Those websites, did not follow color psychology.

This corset here can be our example. What comes to mind when you see this corset? I would choose words like, Victorian, romantic, sexy and classic. Now imagine this corset was yellow and green plaid with orange polka dots. That would totally change my answer. That’s  the power color has over our perception.

The Business of Purple

Marketers and designers don’t choose colors to use in ad campaigns on a whim. Those intense Mad Men-style meetings full of whisky and cigarettes were not kidding. Advertising is serious business. 

Purple is used in advertising to mark a premium service. Think “the deluxe” package vs. the “the basic”. When used in the younger demographic, 18-27 years old, purple packaging screams; sexy and naughty. The 27 and older set view the color purple to say: superior, sophisticated and powerful.

That’s pretty amazing to think about. How many regal ads have you seen recently decked out in purple?

 

 

Want to give yourself some shape to show off your own “deluxe” packaging? Try an underbust corset. This purple underbust corset fastens in the front and laces up the back. Can be worn under clothing, but it’s so lovely I recommend showing it off over a white button up shirt or other long sleeve lightweight material items.

As a bonus, this piece can double as a waist training corset. It has steel bones, a modesty panel, and a heavy cord to lace-up. 

Magic and Mystery

Feeling a bit mysterious? Purple is the color of magic, imagination, and spirituality. So cool right? Who knew one color could so much symbolic influence.  

I’ve got the perfect mystical corset dress to spark your mysterious side. This strapless overbust corset dress can be worn for a burlesque performance, to spice up a costume, or if you are feeling a bit goth- throw on a pair of fishnets and hit the club. The sparkly brooch on the bust will guarantee you dazzle, even without adding a necklace. 

 

Soul philosophers consider shades of violet and purple to connect us to our higher state of consciousness.  On the spiritual side, those who study auras believe that those with a purple glow are in a state of balance and happiness.

 

This sheer purple overbust halter corset will put you in a state of happiness when you see how great you look in it. Sequin bling, ruffled bottom, and bows will put a smile on your face.

The Purple Eye

Let's talk make-up. 

Wearing strong colors like violet, purple, or fuchsia inspire the smokey-purple eye. Purple is the suggested go-to color when it comes to playing up green eyes, but its versatile enough to look good with any eye color or skin shade.

Highlight your new purple corset by adding a lavender smokey eye. Here is a fantastic tutorial for a simple purple eye over at isimplylovemakeup. Have some fun. Take your time and play around with different color palettes until you have found the right look for you.

Purple Hair

Our last section on the fabulous color of the day focuses on the super-hot trend, of rich crazy hair colors. Whether it’s pure purple passion or the ombre look- purple hair, is here to stay.

      


I think it’s safe to say, while the rest of us are drooling over how great this hair looks, no one loves purple hair more than the divine Miss Katy Perry.

Katy is an unstoppable force this days. She has been nominated for over 363 awards in the life of her career, winning 92 of them! Go Katy. Still hasn’t grabbed that Grammy (can you believe it??) but we all know she’s going to keep making great music, so it's maybe this will be her big year. 

Besides bestselling albums and sold-out tours, she also made history by being one of the select few to rule the world during her 2015 Super Bowl half-time show. Add to her list of achievements, having every color hair under the sun. Purple, being one of her favorites. Really, is there anything this woman isn’t doing?

 

You know what else Katy is a huge fan of? I'll give you a hint. Something that shows off her sexy hourglass figure, always flatters her, yet still comfortable enough for her to dance on stage for hours. If you guessed corsets, you win!

I've chosen this last corset especially with Katy in mind. I think she would love the front clasps and showing off her waist in this one. And of course, because it's Katy we are talking about- pants are optional. For everyone else- pair this with a skirt and get ready to feel sexy!

Have you been rocking the royal/ mysterious/ power-infused purple lately? Let us know in the comments if purple is your favorite and of course which corset you loved the most. If you need any help choosing the perfectly purple outfit, send us an email at support@atomicjaneclothing.com

Top 7 Steampunk Movies

0 comments Leave a comment

Here at Atomic Jane, we’re a little obsessed with Steampunk these days and with good reason. That reason? Because it's awesome.  Are you a movie buff who loves the unique? Adore a fantastical story set in another era, or even dimension? If you enthusiastically said "Yes!" then you need to check out Steampunk movies. 

*Bonus we've thrown in a few outfit ideas if you want to pay a little homage or get into some cosplay. Without further adieu – let us begin:

Mad Max Fury Road

This Steampunk movie took the world by storm. I mean, hello? It was nominated for an Oscar. Not just any Oscar either, Picture of the Year. While it didn’t win, Fury Road fans are a fierce and fiery bunch so you can guarantee there is a sequel in the works. 

 

PHOTO Forbes.com

In this crazy high-action, thriller film – we get to experience a post-apocalyptic world filled with Steampunk delights. The best way to describe this story: Man is captured, man escapes, man and a tribe of beautiful women go on the baddest, bloodiest, road race you have ever seen. 

As you might have noticed above, yes, Charlize Theron is in it, and yes, she is wearing goggles. If that doesn’t say Steampunk we don’t know what does. Be sure to enjoy all the details of this film, the metal, the chains and, of course, those bad boy cars.

 

Mad Max Inspired Fashion

The female costumes in Mad Max range from tattered-torn rags and leather to well-fitted bodices. For that reason we choose this bad girl- one shoulder Steampunk over bust corset. 

This black faux leather steel boned corset features a heavy cord lace up back. Heavy cords can be used for tight lacing.  Front zipper closures and underwire cups will help this piece hug your body and give your bust support. 

 

Golden Compass

The film adaptation of the beloved modern classic, The Golden Compass, absolutely makes our list. If you are unfamiliar with the story here is a brief summary. This story takes place in an alternate universe where a church, named the Magisterium, rules the world.

Our hero is young Lyra. Lyra is accompanied by her animal – which also happens to carry a portion of her soul. After witnessing some horrible stuff, Lyra goes on the grandest of adventures. Did we mention there are also evil kidnappers called the Gobblers?

As you can see from this image, Lyra’s animal companion is wearing the coolest armor any animal has ever had. This mix of fantasy, mechanics, and wonder makes the Golden Compass steam lover approved.

 

The Golden Compass Inspired Fashion

This outfit combo honors the films magical moments, yet nods it's hat to the classic pieces featured throughout the film. 

This lovely black over bust corset is solid in the bust area with a see through elastic mesh throughout the bodice and has a black ribbon lace up back. If you are feeling a bit modest layer this corset with a tank of your choosing underneath.

 

Wild Wild West

Next up; an oldie by goody. Will Smith’s 1999, Wild Wild West takes on the western Steampunk movie genre head on.  Technically, it's a remake the 1960’s television show – but most would agree this film had little to do with the original inspiration. This rendition is all gadgets, gizmos, and giant mechanical spiders.

A central point of Steampunk is taking the past, and re-imagining with technology from the future. By definition; cowboys + robots = Steampunk.

Wild Wild West is a comedy. Rare, when it comes to Steampunk movies so don’t expect deep thoughts. Instead, sit back and get lost in the steam tankers and flying machines…and cowboys.

 

Wild Wild West Inspired Fashion

This Steampunk Halter has steel bones and captures the essence of steam with its black and brown steel boned bodice. The faux leather and metal accents will look great with chunky accessories like boots or platform sandals. Heavy cord lace up back, for all you gals who love your tight lacing. 

 

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

League of Extraordinary Gentleman is a Steampunk triple threat. Originally a graphic novel, the series boasts mad spin-offs, and of course, the 2003 film. Starring Sean Connery, this was his last performance before entering into retirement. Back in 2003, the world was not yet obsessed with comics turned to film, not just yet. Because of this the movie fared only so-so with viewers.

But that doesn't mean it's not still one fantastic steam movie.On a previous blog we reviewed the series if you’re interested in learning more about the plot – which features beloved characters from the Victorian age, such as Mina from Dracula and Captain Nemo. 

The graphic novel series is straight Victorian Steampunk, and the film tried to stay as close to volume one in the series as they could. Great news for Steampunk movie buffs: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen 2 is in the works. You can expect more on this later this year.

 

A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Inspired Fashion

In the film, Mina sports a black metal overbust corset. Since a full-on metal corset might not be the most comfortable, we went for the next best thing. Check out this vegan leather overbust corset, complete with tons of metal.  

 

Haven't heard of vegan leather yet? Check out a past post and learn more about it. This overbust corset can be paired with leather leggings, jeans or your favorite bottoms for fighting crime and saving the world. 

 

Van Helsing

Monsters galore! If you love steam, and you love horror –  it should be no surprise Van Helsing made our list.

Van Helsing re-imagines the slaying of Dracula. Only this time, Frankenstein and werewolves are involved. Amazing, right?

Action packed, dark, gothic, and full of Victorian Steampunk nods. Starring Hugh Jackman as the title character and Kate Beckinsale as Anna. This is Kate’s second time being featured here on the Atomic Jane blog. We adored her Underworld corsets in that post and she looks just as amazing in film.

 

Van Helsing Inspired Fashion

Kate's costume is a super-sexy underbust corset. Underneath she wears a blousy- light, floral top.   This brown faux leather underbust would totally get her character's approval. 

The side halter design gives extra support. This stunning halter under bust has awesome front buckle details with a front busk closure, and stud details along the edges. The back laces up for cinching and, of course, it's fully steel boned. Take your inspiration from Kate and match with a pop of color and your favorite jeans. 

 

Sleepy Hollow

1999 was a good year for Steampunk movies. Not only did we get Wild Wild West, but Tim Burton brought up Sleepy Hollow. To be fair, pretty much anything Tim Burton touches will usually have Steampunk undertones. Sleepy Hollow, however, is the real deal.

The movie starrs, pretty much, everyone’s favorite actor, the one and only Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci. The movie is based on the 1800’s story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  Depp plays Ichabod Crane, a police constable investigating a slew of grisly murders and a nightmare invoking bad guy, eloquently known as, the Headless Horseman.

My favorite part of this movie is the fashion. Victorian, corsets,  and velvet, mixed with Gothic fashion – give tons of inspiration for your next Steampunk outfit.

 

Sleepy Hollow Inspired Fashion

A movie about a man without a head totally deserves an outfit with a spooky flair. 

The Atomic Black Skull Underbust Corset features an all over skull print, solid black trim, a steel front busk closure and a lace up back. A matching thong is included. Take cues from our outfit combo above and layer over your favorite little black dress. 

 

Robots

It might surprise you that a cartoon made the cut. This isn’t just any cartoon. The adorable and addicting 2005 film, Robots, is amazing. The graphics are terrific. There are tons of inside jokes, only adults could appreciate and it’s seriously steam.

Robot’s introduces us to a world where everyone is…you guessed it! A robot. The main character, Rodney Copperbottom (how cute is that name?) is voiced by Ewan McGregor. Some of the other big names you will recognize; Mel Brooks, Robin Williams, and Greg Kinnear.

Steam powered machines, futuristic technology, and lots of gears make Robots full steam ahead. We highly recommend adding this little gem to the Netflix cue.

 

Robots Inspired Fashion

If you have ever wanted to be a robot, but worry all those actual gears and metal costume might be a bit confining, this under bust corset is the next best thing.

This stunning Atomic Dark Brown and Black Steam Steel Boned Underbust Corset is a brocade Steampunk underbust featuring 14 steel bones, heavy cording and a modesty panel. That means you can get your tight lacing on to your hearts desire!

It features so many leather accents, four heavy front metal clasp closures, four zip front details, and a long, metal Victoria style chain. The bottom has metal rivet details over triple cascading black faux leather. Let your inner robot our with this super-steam-loving piece. 

There you have it, our favorite 7 Steampunk movies. Have you seen them all? Which was your favorite (we're going to guess, it was Mad Max). Go ahead and let us know in the comments.

Steampunk Books – Reading Recommendations and Your Guide to the Genre

3 comments Leave a comment

Today we will be diving straight into the ever growing eclectic and enticing genre of Steampunk literature. So grab your finest reading monocle and get ready to discover your new favorite Steampunk book.

Mini Steampunk Overview

In case you are unfamiliar with Steampunk – here are the basics.  You can read  a more in-depth history of Steampunk here in this blog post. 

Steampunk is a retro-futuristic style of art, clothing, and as we are talking about today, literature. The style includes Victorian, fantasy, the Industrial Revolution, and often a futuristic Wild Wild West.

You know how Star Wars is kind of like, the Cowboy and Indian days of the future on a planet with super-technology? Ok. Now, hold on to that thought and imagine our own history re-imagined with super-technology involved.

Pretty cool, right?

The Steampunk Book Genre

The genre is active and rapidly growing. A quick search on Amazon Kindle available titles launches over 700 titles in the Steampunk genre. That’s a pretty pennies worth of metal gears and top hats. If you are looking to check out some passionate, period-set adventure stories; start with Kindle eBooks.

One reason, if you have Prime subscription most of the books are free. Another, most of these self-published books can be snatched up for $3.00 and under. Since the most authentic steamers would probably prefer a leather bound hand-written novel – they might protest. However, an electronic reading device is kind of amazing in itself and the other half of the authentic steam community should appreciate this. Touché.

Must Read List Featuring Amazing Steam Heroines

Here’s a list of reading material to scratch your steaming itch for a good read.

  1. The Girl in the Steel Corset

Come on now, you know I was going to love this one! The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross (Kathryn Smiths pseudonym) is the first book in a YA series The Steampunk Chronicles.

Don’t let the YA label be a turn-off. After all, Harry Potter is technically a children’s book. YA brought us Twilight, The Hunger Games, and by way of proxy, 50 Shades of Gray.

In Cross’s story, Finely Jayne the lead protagonist is a certified badass. She’s totally empowered, not afraid to fight the bad guys, and brilliant to boot.

Make sure you buy the copy with the prequel novella introducing you to Finely so you don’t miss a thing.

  1. Boneshaker

Cherie Priest brings alive Briar Wilkes in the adventure loving novel, Boneshaker. Part of The Clockwork Century series, Boneshaker is full of; mysteries, airship, Steampunk elements…oh, and zombies.

Yes! I said, zombies. Cherie, how could you know to hit every sweet spot in one short book? Briar wandering through a post-apocalyptic Seattle in the 1800’s will leave you delighted and sometimes terrified. But, in a really good way. I promise.

  1. The Clockwork Scarab: A Stoker & Holmes Novel

By now you may have noticed, the word, “Clockwork” is popular in Steam Lit. Don’t let that dissuade you from trying out Colleen Gleason’s heck of a ride-read.

Ok - are you ready for the juicy details? Get this. The sister of Bram Stroker, Evaline, and the niece of Sherlock Holmes, Mina, team up. To solve mysteries…and hunt vampires.

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. It’s steam. It’s Victorian. It’s 1889 in London and it’s fabulous.  You will thank me, for this one.

Honorable Steam Mentions

Frankenstein

Mary Shelley wasn’t messing around when it came to churning out a seriously, scary story. That woman was like, “Oh, you want nightmares? I got you. “

While Frankenstein might not immediately strike you as a Steampunk book let’s examine the facts: the book is science fiction and by default, it takes place in Victorian times. Sounds steamy to me.

Leviathan (The Leviathan Trilogy)

Leviathan is one of the most beloved books in the steam genre.  History buffs will get a kick out of Scott Westerfeld’s reimagining of World War I in an alternate historically universe. There’s a bit of actual history, such as the basics of how WWI actually started. Strong female character-lovers will delight in the character of Deryn. 15 years old and impersonating a boy (Dylan) to sneak her way up on to the British Air Service war machine, aptly named, the Leviathan.

Popular Classics

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen has the distinction of making our list yet not being a “book” This comic book series is written by Alan Moore and drawn in painfully intricate detail, by Kevin O’Neill.

This story is told over 12 comics split into 2 series, a graphic novel, and a spin-off trilogy. The series uniquely incorporates many other works of fiction within the world of “League”.

League is set in Victorian England, with characters such as Captain Nemo, Fu Manchu, Dr. Jekyll, The Invisible Man and Sherlock Holmes arch nemesis. They encounter the events of Wells’s, The War of the Worlds, and Nineteen Eighty Four, among other popular steam genre references.

The Golden Compass

The Golden Compass has been described as a children’s book that can only be appreciated by the adult reader. Philpp Pulman’s masterpiece is considered to be a modern fantasy classic, and a favorite Steampunk book.  

The story features in no particular order: magic, science, theology, fantasy, and a polar bear that wears metal armor. That’s one serious punk polar bear.

Fascinating Books with Fascinating Authors

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Again, here we have a case of steam genre-by-default. This classic horror story is set in England which by now you may have you noticed, Steampunk and old-time England go together like peanut butter and jelly.

For me, I think an interesting tidbit about Jekyll and Hyde is the author, Robert Louis Stevenson. Here we have a man who writes the loveable classic Treasure Island, goes on to create A Child’s Garden of Verses. I’m pretty sure everyone reading this now had to copy his Daffodils poem onto construction paper in 3rd grade, or at some point of elementary school.

Then, after he writes a bunch of sweet children’s poems, what’s his next big move? A creep-tastic journey into the human psyche. Alright, Robert, whatever float’s your Steampunk boat.

The Time Machine

H.G. Wells. What is there to say about this guy? Can you even imagine what it must have been like to hang out with him? Not only did he give us The Time Machine – uber Steampunk, time traveling/ dark, futuristic masterpiece, but also like, a bunch of other crazy good pieces of writing. The Invisible Man, The War of the Worlds, The Island of Doctor Moreau…really?

Herbert George certainly had a penchant for crafting an enchanting tale. In The Time Machine, a classic English dinner party introduces a group of proper gentlemen to the idea of “the fourth dimension”. I don’t think I’m giving anything away here by letting you know there will be some traveling in time by the books end.  

This book is sci-fi tested, steam lover approved. As a plus, you get to tell people you’re currently reading some H.G. Wells at your next cocktail party.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

Are you ready to kick it old school, as in 1869 school? That was the date this classic was first published and it’s been a favorite among the super science fiction loving crowd ever since. Jules Verne’s is hailed as a visionary for predicting futuristic technologies, such as a suit that would allow you to dive undersea and not drown, an electric motor, and major warships.

The book is articulate, science heavy, and written in true Victorian fashion.

Whew! What a post. Did you find your next Kindle read? Don't forget, most of these books especially the classics are available as an audio book. Go ahead - indulge yourself in the world of googles, dark/ dreary London, and the future-past for your next read. 

If you find something you love - or I mentioned your favorite, please let me know in the comments. As always, if one of the corsets featured here strike your fancy we are available to answer any questions or help with sizing by contacting us support@atomicjaneclothing.com

Happy Reading!

If that isn't enough, the soundtrack is in a league completely of its own.
