Expeditions: The Victorian Era Passion

I have had a life-long fascination with explorers, especially in the Victorian Era where man was pushing the limits of mapping his world and searching for riches and resources. Let's have a look at the era -

Any one of the Universal Monster classic movies brings to light the era. Here's some great movie suggestions if you're in this mood - 

King Kong (1933) 
The Mummy (1932)
Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959)
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)
Tarzan and his Mate (1934)
Jumanji (1995)
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954)
Around the World in 80 Days (1956)
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)
Time Machine (1960)
Captain Nemo and the Underwater City (1969)
Mysterious Island (1961)

Don't forget to dress like an explorer - 

For more fashions, I highly suggest the Victorian Era look of steampunk clothing which takes on the explorers/safari looks.
