The Dragon*Con steampunk fashion show was scheduled to last for 2.5 hours. I'm guessing this was a typo, though, because it actually lasted about 15 minutes.
Then again, since it started an hour and a half late, maybe they figured it would all even out in the end. :)
Besides, I can't be too upset; it was a really fabulous 15 minutes.
I believe each designer had three pieces, so you'll notice similar groupings in that number. (I don't have every piece, though; we missed a few due to poor lighting/focus.)
This next designer has a younger style that I thought was adorable:
There were also a few men's styles, but this was the only really interesting one:
He had a tailor's theme: he flourished a pair of scissors at one point, and had spools of thread wrapped around one hip.
Believe it or not, John really liked this. Which shocks me, since he's been completely adverse to kilts (and, I would assume, corsets) up until now. Personally I prefer corsets on girls, but I have to agree that the rest of it is pretty awesome.
The exposed dress hoop swung around a lot while she was moving, like a pendulum. The movement was interesting, but the fact that her gloves were draped over it made it look a little like a portable clothes line. Heh.
And that's the show! If any of you have pics of the dresses I missed, please e-mail them to me! There was another cute schoolgirl design and a beautiful teal dress that I'd like to include here, if possible.
UPDATE: Leah And Mark, two photographers based in Atlanta, have posted some fabulous shots of the show recently. Here are the two outfits I missed that I really loved:
And here's the teal skirt I mentioned:
