Enter the steampunks!
This is the same steampunk Boba we saw at the Star Wars Celebration. (I really should have gotten his name; nice guy.) He and his group also made what I think were the best costumes at the entire con. Stay tuned for pics of those.
Nifty steampunk scooter-thing. I have close-up pics I took at the Steampunk Exhibition, too, so I'll post those along with the steampunk Fashion Show pics. (Am I giving you enough teasers?)
If I'm posting a lot of cute steamer girls, it's only because I'm collecting ideas for my own costume. And because they're really cute.
And a very steampunked Scarecrow, Lion, and...uh...guest?
Next is the Mad Max-esque section:
Probably the best Firefly costume I've seen:
WWII - era costumes:
A rather "incredible" family:
Adorable Optimus Prime:
Watching the big baddies stop and wave at the little kids in front of us never got old.
These two were fun: "Doc" kept zooming from one side of the street to the other, checking his watch and yelling things, while "Marty" chased after him.
I get the feeling this Jedi really doesn't mind being captured:
And that's it for the parade! Next up: more con costumes, hopefully in somewhat better lighting, and a few bits on my fangirl run-ins with Odo and Doktor A. I'll also tell you about the Worst Panel Ever, the Best Dragon*Con Employee Ever, and what it's like taking your parents to D*C. [grin] I'll also have a post just on steampunk fashion and gadgetry, which should be pretty sweet.
SO...stay tuned while I continue to run myself ragged, k?
