Steamposium!

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon, in Seattle!
You know you  married the right person, when he takes you to a Steampunk Convention for your Honeymoon/Birthday!
We had an amazing time!
I had the honor of meeting a lot of really cool people, including the amazing Steampunk fashion designer and model, Kato!
It was more fun than I could possibly describe!
I was so busy mingling and meeting people, that I forgot to take a lot of photos! I did manage to remember to get a photo of each outfit I wore, though, so here are those photos! Please let me know what you think!

Day 1 in the morning:
I made the hoodie, all of the jewelry, and the belt.
Boots – Famous Footwear
Corset – gift from a friend
Leggings – Cato’s
Socks – American Apparel
Pouch – Army Navy Surplus store in Chicago

Day 1 for the ball (my outfit):
I made the lace cuffs, and chocker.
Corset – gift from a friend
Shrug – I think Marshals.
Purple shirt – No tag, from goodwill
Skirt – Charlotte Russe (in like 2005)
Petticoat – from my mother, I wore it under my wedding gown last week! (I think she got it from a thrift store)

Honestly, the only thing I can say for sure about Tommy’s outfit, is that I made the crevat out of a strip of fabric from Joann Fabrics.

Day 3:
This is the fun one!
Okay, so first, I’ll just list off:
Jewelry and lace cuffs – I made.
Fingerless gloves – Hot Topic
Scarf/shawl – Dillon’s Grocery Store
Leggings – Boutique in mall
Socks – Sock Dreams
Corset – gift
Tank Top – Walmart
Boots – Macy’s

Now the skirt! I decided on Saturday night that I didn’t have anything super cute to wear with my outfit on Sunday, so at 10:00pm on Saturday night, I drug my husband around Seattle, looking for something (anything) lace! We went to a couple of stores before we found Walmart. Amazingly enough, it had a fabric department, so I found this white lace and got two yards ($3.50/yard – you can’t beat that!). We went to Starbucks, then went back to our hotel room, where I had some ribbon, and a small hand sewing kit, and threw this skirt together last minute. I think it turned out really well!

Again, we had a really great time! It was a honeymoon I won’t soon forget.

This is going to be a long post, but there are 2 exciting things to share!

First, my blog is now officially a website! emmspage.com!

Second, through connections (via my brother) it looks like some of my jewelry will be for sale near Wild Wild West Con in Tucson, AZ.
I will give you more details when I get them, but I am very excited!
On that note, here is some of what I made for the Con. Sorry, in advance, for the picture overload.
