Atlanta Hilton, Poolside.  Steampunk ruled the pool this Sunday at the Atlanta Hilton. Better photographers than me stalked the walkways, but I got the little point and shoot out to please you! Here are some images caught at the shoot.  Please, if you are in these photos, let me know who you are!

Uh-oh! Gunplay!

Don’t these guys look great? They were manly 100%.

Beauty is Steam!

This fine woman spoke to me and Henrietta for some time. She and her husband make a fine team. (See below.)

Don't mess with Steampunk.

Our very own Henrietta Hoppingood, Professor of Esoterica, met a kindred spirit, G.D. Falksen.

Steampunk at Dragon Con

Steampunk is the new Vampire! Overflowing rooms, photo shoots, meet-ups and gadgets! Steampunk is WAY hot at this year’s Dragon Con.

By far, the strongest impression I came away with is how NICE the Steampunkers are.  Not one was rude to me. All were open and giving about how the cobbled together their costumes. Every man was handsome. There is a reason that the Tuxedo has been in fashion for more than 100 years; it looks good on just about everyone.

But enough about what I thought. Were you there?  What turned your rock? What annoyed you?
