Yesterday I enjoyed working a booth with the Gateway City Ghostbusters. They offered me a free pass and I was very grateful for their generosity. However, I’d worked so hard on the playhouse, I didn’t have time for to create the cosplay I wanted. But I had a decent Batgirl and a lot of fun!!
I was really looking forward to seeing all the great steampunk and NeoVictorian outfits and my hometown/region did not disappoint. Here are some of the steampunk sightings from St.Louis. Note that I asked each person for use of their image for my blog. Enjoy!
Darling in pink:
The lady in red hand made her coat. The pic doesn’t do it justice.
This young man had such a great pack!!! How creative.
You’ll know who this is if you look in his left hand. Clever!
These ladies were here last year and out did themselves. Incredible detail and gorgeous lighting.
House of Genevieve had some really lovely pieces. Some respect from one milliner to another.
Wares from Dolls Gone Wrong.
Characters from the steam web series Antediluvian looked fantastic:
A friend and local steampunk who won last year as Tink has some interesting headgear and awesome weaponry.
And I finally got to meet Marcibel MusicalAutomation who is part of Airship Vindus and Antediluvian.
Lastly, me and a few other favs from the show:
Who you gonna call?
