9:43 – Main Topic -> Traveling (literally) WITH Style!

  • corsets
  • long, fluufy skirts
  • ***give a thought to packing while you're buying***
  • Iron the day you land - you won't do it the next day
  • Check suits, and satin, and related as it cuts down on creases
  • Roll your gowns; lay them at the outer portion of your clothes and they will be the least wrinkled external bit
  • Suits -> shell the shoulders and look on YouTube for tips
  • Special suitcases exist tailored for suits
  • Tips and tricks on packing business attire AND costumes for Steampunk, Dieselpunk, etc
  • Pack your corset in your carry-on!
  • Fluffy undergarments (petticoats) can be stored in space saver bags since wrinkles don't matter that much
  • Bag your expensive clothes! Water will find its way through even the best suitcase and ruin the whole dress-up event
  • Wear your hat! Keep it safe. Unless you have a special carry-case like Dan Wells
  • Ironing Tip! -> Let the iron get hot, then iron one of your hotel towels when wet to make sure the iron is clean.
  • Inside out ironing, packing, and hanging in the closet is your friend
  • Stuff your shoes so they don't get crushed (underwear's good)
