|Kian as Abdulhaq, his Afghani scientist.|
Miss K: Here is Kian's background about Abdulhaq:
Miss K: How long did it take you to make/put together your ensemble?
|Options are endless: Kian mixing an Indian jacket with a European waistcoat.|
Miss K: Why would you recommend making an Afghani-inspired steampunk ensemble to people?
Kian: I would recommend it, as well as any style of steampunk ensemble that breaks out of the increasingly stringent bounds that are forming in the steampunk subculture, due to the need for ‘outside-of-the-box’ thinking, in order to keep the sub-culture alive and ahead of the curve. Also, as my research showed me, there are infinite possibilities for thrilling steampunk adventures and characters in the Afgani line of being. I strongly encourage any and all to seriously look into the Afghani culture for inspiration for all things steampunk.
Amen, Kian. Thanks for showing us your fantastic and very educational outfits! (I had NO idea that's how the sherwani developed! I'm actually going to make one in the near future and that makes so much sense taking into account the garments that came before.)
If anyone has any questions about Kian's outfits, persona, or his rich heritage, he can be emailed here- or post them below.
