HARD TO STARBOARD

I am breaking my long-held radio silence to STEAMPUNK UP THE PLACE. It is amazing, I am like the last person to post these photos, EVEN THOUGH THE SHOOT WAS *YESTERDAY* CHRIST THIS IS EFFICIENCY.

ANYWAY.

This was a TRULY STUPID AMOUNT OF FUN. The cosplayers were all friends, all lovely, and entirely drama-free. ;D The photographer (David Tang was *amazing* - talented, super-quick and honestly the nicest photographer I've dealt with so far. And the support crew: the make up artist (so friendly and helpful, and damn good at what she does!), the organiser (poor guy was put through his paces), the modeling coach (that was new, but she was so lovely about giving advice) and the marketing advisor (coming up with ideas and things!). Everyone was just fantastic, and the day went brilliantly.

So please, my dear friends;





From L-R: Myself as Captain Aubrey Kirk Shakespeare WHATEVER, _leareth as our French turncoat pilot, Alice the Second as our esteemed navigator (she had a COMPASS in her PIMP CANE) and fahye as our long-suffering doctor.


Our weapon of mass destruction. >D


Sword? What sword?


What you don't know: how much Disney karaoke this shot involved >.>




The character posters. <3


'tis barely a scratch! God I love this photo. Apparently fahye actually took my pulse too, which is fine (just in case you were interested). XD


TRAIN.


Getting into character - and seeing how they developed over the day - was one of the best parts of this shoot. Also, meet our Villain, the Dastardly Jonathon!


The Flashback Episode, wherein we meet our eventual pilot for the first time. I am a little over-zealous following a sighting of the Fleur-de-lis brooch, subsequently we try to kill each other.


When it eventuates that we have a turncoat on our hands...well. What's a bullet wound between officers?




Damn but fahye is amazing in this shot.





Man, what a wonderful day. I don't think it'll be the last by any means - so looking forward to the next one. Also, if anyone reading this (Rena, Abi, I'm looking at you!) has a steampunk outfit (or wants to make one) to showcase on a catwalk at a Steampunk party on October 21st, let me know!

Also there's a steampunk party on October 21st. XD

Now I'm just trying to lure the photographer towards cosplay - apparently he's done it before, but has had some bad experiences with people in the subculture. D: I SHALL STILL TRY!
