Like many things at Dragon*Con, the steampunk fashion show and exhibition were both pretty poorly planned. They were booked both at the same time and the same room, which resulted in one gigantic line snaking down two floors of the hotel, and made up of folks planning to attend one or the other (or in my case, both). After an hour or so, they separated us into two lines: one for each event. Initially we stayed in the fashion show line, figuring we'd be seated fairly quickly. When I realized they wouldn't be letting us in the room until the Exhibition wrapped, though, we went to check that out - about 10 minutes before they shut the whole room down. :(
So, here are the few shots I managed to get of the Exhibition before we had to leave. My biggest regret of the whole weekend was that I didn't get more time in there, because the things we did get to see were simply amaaaazing.
Here's the Tin Man:
And here's that steampunk scooter from the parade:
John and my dad ended up talking to the guy who made this almost the entire time we were there. I wonder if that means they can build me one, now. :)
These two were both creepy and fascinating:
The girl had a brass fan and scrolled metal work covering her face, plus lots of intricate gizmos (technical term) on her fingers and leg:
There were even some nice jewelry pieces out:
Most of the tables were covered and they were ushering out of the room by this point, so here's my last shot:
If any of you have a link for more pics from the exhibition, please, share them in the comments!
