First Steampunk Fest Fashion Show at Cite des Arts
Ballerina in the middle & the girl in green on the right will share the Win
both of them made their costumes

the girl duo with the umbrella did a skit with their costumes
which I think was a Fab idea to do that in the theater next year
skits or plays or ??

I missed earlier the reading of The Raven with the Steampunk Puppeteer's (Rick Rowan) acting out of the poem by none other than Edgar Allen Poe





 

 
Rick Rowan as Steampunk Puppeteer
with his rod puppet
 
note: later on November 20th he'll be interviewed on KRVS at 88.7 FM for nearly an hour & will include talking about his participation in this First Steampunk Festival at Cite des Arts...

First Steampunk Festival Cite des Arts
Original poster art by Kody Chamberlain
(note: I will buy one of these t-shirts...
it will become my Steampunk costume - best I could do on short notice...
that & my Kraken necklace accessory, thank you Arts Kinetic/aka Forrest from NOLA for that?!)
 
 
link to a review of: A Steampunk book series? Yes please--tho it says in the blog post it's for tweens mostly am still intrigued (how does one write steampunk? hmmm...most curious...now must read one...) - The Crown Phoenix series by Alison Deluca...
 

 

 
Steampunk cake from the UK - friend went to a wedding, took photos...
 
note: this may have been the first I heard of Steampunk as in crossing over into the real world & into weddings or at least in the UK (here I've still had to tell lots of folks what Steampunk even is...)
 
I was living in Stavanger, Norway at the time (so over 2 yrs ago now) when a friend from the UK went back home for a wedding & she dressed in costume & she took photos & she told me that...
 
This couple getting married dressed as did the guests in Steampunk fashion & their whole ceremony/reception room was also in this theme, as of course was their cake--what great fun, I would so love to attend a Steampunk wedding...
 
Brillian Idea for Next (the Second / to be Annual) Steampunk Festival in Lafayette, LA at Cite des Arts on Vine Street...
 
Someone please get Married & do that Party up Right?! Aie...
(or in Texan talk that would be YeeHah with a cowboy hat in the air?!)

Nooo....
I have sadly/oddly run out of photo storage on Google
do I want to pay to post more photos?
should I delete all photos in Picasa - that are saved elsewhere in order to get more space?
well until I decide what to do--that's it for the Blog photos I guess - Urgh... :o(

  1. Thank you so much for "covering" our first annual Steampunk Festival hear in Lafayette. I am on the organizing committee for this year's festival and it promises to be even better. Tentatively, it will be November 9th, 2013. Thanks for the interview plug as well. - Rick Rowan

    1. Great to hear you'll be helping with the organizing for this year's Steampunk Festival & now I know the date?! You were the Best Puppet Master last year--then I find out in the interview why...because you know puppets very well. Thanks backatcha' for the comment & as for "covering" the first festival--that's a lovely compliment...I can't wait to see how this Steampunk Festival takes off from the first & I'm going to try harder to make a costume?!
