So the Alaska Steamposium in Anchorage was a tiny but enthusiastic little con, well worth a visit if you are in the area. They treated me like royalty and I had a lovely time.
One of the things that they did was challenge the con com to dress as a Gail Carriger cover. Beatrix took this literally…
Yes that is real dandelion fluff on a spoon. The hat was full of little inside jokes like that.
I wore my black simple outfit with the circus corset.
As you might imagine it was cold so I have undershirt and sweater on. Smaller hat (easier to pack) and so forth for a generally rather simple look. Just wait until you see what I wear to World’s Fair next month. Last time I was there it was SO HOT, that this time I am packing super light. You’ll see me in some steampunk outfits that have never debuted before.
This isn’t one of them…
Romancing the Inventor in Audiobook. A maid bent on seducing a brilliant cross-dressing scientist who’s too brokenhearted to notice. Or is she?
