A steampunk affair…

Happy Saturday, tout le monde!  These are some snaps from a friend's birthday party a few weeks ago! We had a Steampunk-castle-picnic and it was absolutely amazing!  I've got to hand it to the people of the past: sitting and eating a picnic lunch in a corset and bustle is no easy feat!  We were stared at by oodles of people ogling our costumes and I felt ever so slightly like a zoo animal, but heck… it was fun! 

… also, I've never  had the opportunity to glue gears to my face before, and I actually didn't want to take them off when I got home after the party.  They do lend a great space-age-punk-rock-I-wanna-be-a-robot vibe to things, don't they?
