Steampunk Fashion at Fan Expo Canada

I had an incredible time at Fan Expo Canada this weekend! I promise a longer post (or many) on the subject soon, but first I wanted to share the guest post I wrote for She Does the City on steampunk fashion and crafting your own steampunk style.

It’s been a wonderful year getting to know the steampunk community in my city and the folks at the Toronto Steampunk Society are some of the most welcoming, creative and inspiring people who I’m happy to call friends now. I was worried too when I first started to come out to events, and for any and all newcomers to the genre, my advice is to put yourself out there and join in the fun! The borders of steampunk are expansive and all are welcome.

Toronto ComiCon 2015

I had a fantastic time hanging out with the Toronto Steampunk Society at ComiCon! Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello!

So many incredible costumes and cosplay! There’s a unique thrill to seeing your favourite characters walking around together. Extra special thanks to everyone who bought a copy of Tales of the Captain Duke: The Stowaway Debutante! I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing it. And once you’re finished, Book 2: From Haven to Hell will be out this spring!

Here are just a few of the pictures from today (I certainly need to take more next time!)
