Rather than mixing these in with my other costume posts, I figured I'd showcase all of the best steampunk costumes I found here. That way, if you're sick of steampunk, you can just skip this one. (And also the steampunk fashion show post, and steampunk exhibition post. Heh.)
I have two sets of steampunked Wizard of Oz cosplay to show you. Here's the first:
Glinda's crown was pretty awesome, and the flying monkey was wearing a rocket pack.
Here they're joined by two more "friends":
Gorgeously done military/stewardess uniform:
This next guy on the right was huge, and his costume had so much going on it was hard to take it all in:
I'm sure it will shock absolutely none of you to learn that John reeeeally liked this girl's outfit:
This was taken at the steampunk ball, which unfortunately was so dark and crowded that I got very few useful pictures. (Boo.)
And finally, my favorite of the whole con: the ultimate steampunked/post-apocalyptic Wizard of Oz cast:
I don't have particularly good photos of these guys, so what I lack in quality I'll try to make up for with quantity. Heh.
Here's a shot with the flash on:
The girl on the floor is Dorothy; in her lap is a little stuffed Toto. I love that she's wearing red booties for her "ruby slippers."
The Wicked Witch's metal corset was amaaaazing:
As was Glinda's dress. You'll see better shots of it in my steampunk exhibition post; they had it and the Tin Man costume on display there.
The flying monkey is decked out in an aviator cap n' goggles and a Rocketeer-style jetpack. The scarecrow is a zombie scarecrow, because, as they pointed out, what did Scarecrow want? That's right: Braaaiiins. *giggle*
UPDATE: I believe the Tin Man suit is the same one used in the short movie Heartless: The Story of the Tin Man. (I overheard the suit makers mentioning a movie.) It's a gorgeous film, and only about 20 minutes long, so definitely go see it when you can.
The group later moved downstairs, so I tried again there with the flash:
And there you have it! Between this group and the steampunked X Men who won the costume contest, you could say that steampunk really ruled the con.
I didn't manage to photograph the X Men myself, but here's a photo by Daniel Valdez (who is the guy in the chair):
You may recognize Daniel's wheelchair; it's quite famous here on the internets. If you *haven't* seen it before, though, then definitely watch this:
