decided to upload a recent ID pic. Yesterday at Lake parade. Was a great day, The music rocked, the people were awesome, the costumes were crazy ! I chose Goth/steampunk because it is my absolutely favorite theme.

I was wondering at which sea this was taken, but a quick check in google said the Lake Parade was in Zürich, so......

Geneva..... For me there were 4 kinds of Geneva.....

- Summer / weekend ==> the most beautiful time
- Summer / Monday - Friday
- Winter / weekend
- Winter / Monday - Friday ==> terribly grey

For me Geneva was not Switzerland, Geneva was Geneva.....
I was working at University, Sciences II, 30 Quai Ernest-Ansermet, my very first year in Switzerland (although I had been there as a student for 3 months in 1986). It was quite new and strange, I was glad to leave.....

I've been back here several times, but now as a "tourist" to visit the beautiful places, like Le Jardin Botanique

I know you said this isn't cosplay, but it recalls Sisi on the shore of Lake Geneva on the day of her assassination (if you know that story).

Thank you:) it was quite appreciated at the festival. I think at least 100 people stopped me to take a photo with me. It was very appreciated the costume and very much stared at.

yea, it was a great costume. I never really understood the cosplay kind of things. But I have a couple of friends who are/Archaeologists/historians and they do it as their day job :)

it is not really cosplay. I though cosplay means when you actually try to impersonate a game, movie, cartoon or novel character. This is just a dress up in Victorian style. I am a photographer and i have a collection of all kind of fashion accessories and clothing.

at 42 I am not really what i can call a youngster and certainly a person in their 20s would not call me youngster. But as I do commercial photography from time to time, i need these accessories and outfits. Thank you for the lovely message

Valentina by Colin-Bentham   Hope you don't mind. I took the liberty this morning to have a play with your steampunk outfit, and added a Victorian building in the background.
