Steampunk Picnic

Jeremy and I took the boys along to our very first Steampunk event that didn't take place inside our house. It was a Steampunk Picnic.

The first person we met was Scarlet--and she is adorable!


She came up and asked if she could take our picture.


"Cheese!"

The night before I made a new hair clip since I can't wear my tiny hat with short hair. 

I was really happy with how it turned out for a quick project.

Scarlet is a member of the Airship Nox.  A fine dressed group. 

Our Picnic host and co-founder of the Great Plains Steampunk group, Jeremiah, is in the middle.  To his right is "Beans?"  For the life of me I can't tell whether or not a lot of these people are using real names or an alias!

This guy (Perrin?) who is the airship Nox Captain (Maybe?) was showing of some whip skills. 

He was so nice and let Owen try it out.

Huyah! 

Owen was having a great time, and loved being dressed up.

Jeremy and I loved that there was a party keg of our favorite Virgil's root beer!

We ended the outing with a run around the fountain to cool down before our long drive home.  But it was worth it.  It was fun to meet some new people and enjoy some steampunk fun "in the flesh" and not just virtually!
