Steampunk Photoshoot by Independent Expression

I received a nice email from Troie, a photographer who runs a studio called Independent Expression. Troie recently did an awesome steampunk photoshoot with his friends Brittany, Johnny, and Nicolette.

This looks like a lot of fun! Very classy and sexy and full of punk. Apparently they had planned to do an outside shoot, but due to a storm they shot inside a weird building instead. I think it worked out great!

I thought I would share a set from a fun steampunk shoot I did with my friends Brittany, Johnny, and Nicolette. We planned to shoot outside but a crazy thunder storm canceled that idea. I have been keeping an eye on this funky building being built and it was perfect for our fun… and even more once we found a way to sneek inside.

To view all photos, visit Independent Expression on Flickr. Big thanks to Troi for the tip!

Wow, I totally love this steampunk supergirl costume! What a super creative idea, perfectly executed in a way that totally compliments her body type.

These photos were taken at Dragon Con 2010. I hope we get to see more of Steampunk Supergirl at future cons!

Steampunk Benny Hill?

LOL! Looks like our pal Steampunk Boba Fett paid a tribute to Benny Hill.

So very silly, but too funny!

Steampunk Song: I’m on a Blimp

   Posted by: manny    in Costumes, Music, Video

Here’s a fun steampunk music video, put together by DragonConTV. Called “I’m on a Blimp,” the song is a parody of “I’m on a Boat” by The Lonely Island.

The video features the steampunk musicians The Extraordinary Contraptions, as well as the famous Steampunk Boba Fett.

So very awesome!

Check out this awesome steampunk Optimus Prime, cleverly designed by Encline Designs.

Yes, he runs on coal and transforms into a locomotive. What a brilliant idea! LOL, maybe they’ll use this idea for a Transformers prequel movie? Count me in!
