My long awaited Steampunk fashion shoot is here at least, shot on set in front of (and on top of, and next to, and inside of) historical steam locomotives. I had the pleasure of working with the incredibly beautiful (and sweet) *MeganCoffey, the first model I've ever contacted on DA to collaborate with. Thanks to, Karen von Oppen's beautiful Steampunk designs, this shoot really came alive.
As for some cool news, you'll forever be able to see a piece of this shoot in Google Maps, because Google was on set photographing the railroad for a Google Maps 360 Tour of the place, and asked if they could photograph one of my models (~WingedInfinity) to be used in the tour! That's one way to get published!
As always, comments and feedback are always greatly appreciated. This is my first full-scale production with a fashion designer's wardrobe, multiple models, a make up and hair stylist, an assistant, and a licensed set.

Well no, I meant, ...share their stories, just like friends do. <3
This is a Steampunk outfit I've been planning for two years now, when I created a character called The Lady of Time, a girl who sells pocket watches. However, her goods aren't as normal as they look, since every watch points to a different number and once you buy from her, you purchase more than just a ticking little clockwork.
Everything about this cosplay revolves around the image of time. I tried to include as many details as I could and liked. The costume also inlcudes many little presents from my character's best friend, a deep-sea explorer, like the compass or the neclace. Overall many many thoughts and a lot of love went into creating this costume and this character, more than I could possibly utter here. Wearing it almost felt natural.

An original costume designed and constructed by me. I created the top hat first and built the rest of the outfit around it. The jacket, harness, collar, and hat are all totally handmade. The bird inside the hat is also decorated in a steampunk style and has metal parts and his own tiny ray gun.
This design won first place in the steampunk category at the All-Con 2013 costume contest.
