Having a blast at the Grand Canadian Steampunk Expo already. The concert by Jardin Mécanique last night was wonderful, they put the punk in steampunk, and really can turn a phrase. Not to mention scream like pros. The band is super sweet and stuck around for pictures and autographs.

Professor Elemental was frequently spotted roaming the fort all evening, and penned a lovely note for Jon.

Marathon sewing for fun and coats

After a full day of sewing with Alli on Saturday, the costumes for the upcoming steampunk convention are mostly complete!

- Alli’s outfit is fantastic, and only missing jewlery, which I will be loaning her.

- Jim’s outfit is fully done, is very very awesomely golden, and only his vest still needs any actual sewing, as I have to rearrange the buttons slightly to better fit him.

- Jon’s outfit is mostly complete, we found some last bits while shopping today.  I’ve got some accessories to find for him but the rest is complete.

- My costume is done, minus the coat which still needs some sewing.  I need to put the last sleeve on, combine the outer shell and the lining, then sew on some buttons and I’m done.  I have all the accessories I need already.

Here are some pictures of one variant of Alli’s costume (including bonus Zoé), and of Jim’s partial costume, minus his vest.  Please forgive my shitty cellphone camera.

superhappy

This gate-keeping bullshit on nerd girls is ridiculous, I am glad she trolled him! Thanks for playing, rando nerd dude, but you clearly don’t deserve to talk to an awesome nerdy girl. GTFO!

(PS, I can name dozens of anime that I’ve seen that aren’t on Netflix or Hulu. Also can name dozens that are less than 24 episodes. Plus, been playing vidya since the Atari 2600. Don’t test people’s nerd cred, it’s shitty behavior.)
