1st Annual Steampunk World's Fair

Still going over photos from the Steampunk World's Fair, but I think I'm halfway done with my photos now... I think...

You can see more photos from the convention here.

Steampunk World's Fair Overview

The Steampunk World's Fair was insane! A lot of great events!

I ended up taking just under 3,000 photos. Got to see a great band, Unextraordinary Gentlemen, who I didn't know was going to be there until I actually saw them! Met up with some new friends, as well as old ones. Did many photo shoots, as well as attended many presentations and panels.

Only down side was the end of Saturday night when my camera battery died. This was my back-up battery, while my main battery was still recharging back in my hotel room. Of course it died during the performance by Cosplay Burlesque and The White Elephant Society :\

The only other downside was being woken up by Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band at 4-5am in the morning on Sunday... awesome. Not.

I stayed at the Embassy Suites hotel which was nice, but the only downside was I needed to pay for wireless internet in my room, to which I said, "Fuck that!" Luckily they had a internet cafe that was free for guests in the lobby.

Now I'm slowly going through the photos. I was going through them in order, but the designers from Sunday's fashion show already started asking me about them, so I'm trying to finish up their photos first before I handle the regular photos.

Here's some quick previews:

Sakuri Matsuri

Checked out the Brooklyn Botanical Garden this past weekend for their Sakuri Matsuri celebration, or what was left of it, since the cherry blossoms bloomed earlier due to the fluctuating weather this season.

Did two shoots, but aside from that I didn't snap any photos of the cosplayers. Kind of tired of shooting the same cosplay outfits, heh.

The two shoots I did were related to the Kuroshitsuji series. The first one was for Lisa and the second one was for Donna and Christine. Lisa's shoot was her in her Ciel outfit, while Donna and Christine's group was the characters in kimonos.
