The Brass Harpies are a trio of artful and sophisticated travellers from the Steampunk Imaginarium - three intrepid ladies who whimsically roam festivals and events in curiously curated costumes, entertaining passers-by on all things Steampunk whilst engaging them in splendid conversation, much laughter, and wondrous photo imagery!
Their magnificent vintage pram "Persephone" is resplendent with Victorian-inspired goodies - bespoke hats, Steampunk attire, dazzling bling; all manner of delightful props for people to don as they pose for gorgeous, serious, or silly images - forever captured within a glorious (time) frame for photographic posterity.
The Brass Harpies will happily put a top hat on anything!
Affectionately known as Milly, Abs and Hep, let their passion for Steampunk transport you to an era where top hats reign supreme, adventure is the noblest of pursuits, and the future is an invention of brass and steam.

"The Brass Harpies are a favourite street performance act at the PAVE Festival. Milly, Abs and Hep are professional performers with a relaxed and easy to work with attitude. They're all about engaging with their audience and generously share their delight and fun, stopping to chat, posing for photos, always in character and always bringing laughter, joy, surprise and delight. They received rave reviews the first time they appeared in 2019 and we are pleased to have them back, time and time again."

"Steampunk came to Marian College in Book Week courtesy of ‘The Brass Harpies’. A chance encounter in the historic town of Clunes during a Booktown weekend led to a fabulous day of celebrating romance, magic, fashion, all things Victorian, gadgets, machinery, and adventurous literature with feisty female leads. The Marian College students and several staff members enjoyed a day of celebrating all things Steampunk. We talked, laughed, shared stories and dressed up with our wonderful story telling chair taking centre stage. We highly recommend that you ‘Get Kraken!’, 'Get Frocked!’ and have a splendid time!"
