Steampunk Party - Part One

I went to my first Steampunk event. It was a local party sponsored by Ravenworks, a store that caters to costume wearing folk. I didn't really have ANY idea of what I was going to wear quite literally until I put it on and decided: That'll do. Reena's band, al Khemia, was playing and I was on duty as photo-meister. It was an ... interesting night. I cannot say that I was overwhelmed, but that is certainly due in part to my 1) being at work and, 2) not being a steampunk aficionado. My costume choice met with favorable comments so it must have been passable. This woman caught my eye several times over the course of the evening, and despite the truly terrible lighting in the room, I managed a lovely candid portrait:

There are a double-handful of images in a SLIDE SHOW at my Flickr site. More will be added in the next day or so. In the meantime, here is another sample of the steampunk goodness that was providing ambiance...
