This video is so mesmerizing. Enjoy the plentiful steampunk-inspired fashion in this footage from the Edwardian Ball and World’s Faire 2013 in San Francisco. Wow, talk about an amazing party.
Mark Day shot and produced this video. Man, someday I hope to shake his hand. Mark seems to be at every major party, and he has quite the knack for capturing the magic at these events. Do check out his other work on his YouTube channel.
Take a look at this gorgeous steampunk video by directors Adrian Lazarus and Nicky Felbert. Truly stunning! It was shot in a coffee shop in Capetown, South Africa. David, the coffee shop owner, already had a collection of steampunk costumes, and the team managed to produce this video for less than $1,000.
The piece is a fantasy video showcasing the fashion, the hats, the gadgets and the lifestyle that could have been the future of 19th Century steam culture, set in the future. The decadent nature of this steam era video, is portrayed with strong gun-slinging women, and rough grizzly men. The music from Moby suits the piece perfectly.

This is SweetLoris, who looks truly amazing in her steampunk outfit. What a great photo, and I love that gun! I’m impressed that she was able to assemble this costume without resorting to the typical goggles and glued on gears. Not that there’s anything wrong with goggles and gears — I just like the uniqueness of her ensemble.
This photo shoot was a collaboration between SweetLoris and photographer Kristin Berwald. Well done, Ladies, you did a marvelous job!

The guns were so expensive that the photographer only let me hold them for a few minutes while we were shooting and then carried them around in a baby stroller with extra padding.
