Nova Albion 2011

Teen2 found out about this event last week so at the last minute we decided to attend. It's a short drive from our town to Santa Clara, California where the event was held. When we walked in Teen2 thought she'd died and gone to heaven. Needless to say, I think there will be some Steampunk costumes in our future.
I too, was smitten by the genre and think I'll be a lady adventurer like the one above. Pith helmet, sensible skirt and jacket, netting on the hat for a buggy day, leather accessories. She carried a bird cage with some birds in it, but I think I might add a leather notebook full of botanical drawings and a magnifying glass instead.
The vendors all had on fabulous costumes.
And everyone was happy to pose for photos.
Check out these cute girls. Only the girl on the left is not a girl. That's Matt who we just met last week at the League of Proper Villians meetup. What a fun group! Thanks for making us feel so welcome.
