May 2016: Steampunk World’s Fair

I have a great love of costume, fabric, texture, collage and layers, and oddities, and this has led me to many places and events: belly dance expositions, the Society for Creative Anachronism’s Pennsic War (and other events), museum exhibitions and displays, craft shows, and similar occasions. This past weekend I was able to attend the Steampunk World’s Fair in Piscataway, NJ on the weekend of May 13-15. Music, a fashion show, booths with all thing Steampunk, from clothing to artifacts, and the best part, people dressed in wonderful costumes and characters strolling around the grounds shared by the two host hotels gave me a wonderful day. Here are my favorite photos of the event. (Oh, and I was not particularly notable, dressed in “protective coloration” – maybe next time I’ll go full out and get into true character.)
