Busy week! (as I'm sure it is where you are, if you are celebrating Thanksgiving this week. And have a house full of people. And deadlines..)
There was a room devoted to live music at Steamcon (what is steampunk music you ask? Yeah, I did too... Was told it was classic sorts of songs done with a twist... You decide if that is at all satisfactory.) At any rate, here are a couple of the performers that were at the convention last weekend...
And for your viewing pleasure - more pics!
Yes, that *is* a birdcage on her head (she had one of my favorite costumes all day).
A very debonair couple...
More of the boy...
It's for *all* ages!! :-)
The theme this year was "Wild, Wild West" - and behold! Steampunk cowboy!
These guys were from the League of S.T.E.A.M. (www.leagueofsteam.com). This fine gentleman demonstated his zombie-fighting apparatus by having me grab the metal prongs. Zowiee! Pretty shocking - literally! (and powered by baby electric eels, no less...:-)
Hand-powered wooden chain-saw.
(they have paranormal adventures posted on their website..)
Another awesome get-up...
And this is the lovely Gail Carriger, signing her books for me. (squee!)
*Everyone* looked great. Over 95% of the people there were dressed to the nines. So much eye candy. I wish I could have taken a picture of *everyone* there.
But the company was the funnest part - the son, a good friend and some face time wandering about with Greg Manchess (who is the best sport of anyone I know).
Already looking forward to next year (which will be 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea :-).
