Egyptian Rose

LVG Vampires & Steampunks: No direction required here – this queen of the ancients has lots of excellent poses ready – this was probably the best. Great eye contact for this one, probably the shot of the night.

Gentleman Scholar

LVG Vampires & Steampunks: Played around a bit to get this nice grain effect with lots of contrast for this one – the lighting was low so all these shots were high ISO anyway – but I just liked how this turned out, especially with the light from above.

Feathered Contemplation

LVG Vampires & Steampunks: Catherine in contemplative mood – maybe the bar had just closed, who knows. The hat has a great purple band to it, but this was the best angle with the feathers leading out of frame.

Divine Light

LVG Vampires & Steampunks: A Chance shot this – I’ll not take all the credit here – the dance floor lights caught this couple in a moment (hope they don’t mind this one going up here, but I like it a lot!)

Tank Girls

LVG Vampires & Steampunks: Two very intense looks one from the Tank Girl on the right – great party this, way more steampunk type outfits than vampires – which was a surprise.

Steamy Details

LVG Vampires & Steampunks: Many sets of well crafted goggles at this event – these were some of the best – can’t resist those detail shots sometimes.

Professor Mandible

LVG Vampires & Steampunks: This fearsome gentleman had travelled from New Zealand and was rewarded with the best Steampunk prize – the syringe mandibles are inspired by the Predator and the colourful tattoos finish this off nicely. Can’t remember what he was offering me money for…

Steampunks & Vampyres

Off to the London Vampyre Group‘s Steampunk/Vampyre party tomorrow night – hopefully get some good shots there, what this space…

Mad Scientist

This chap purchased these wonderful steampunk shades at WGT – and with the goatee, he’s surely off to the lab to throw his hands in the air and shout “It’s Alive!”

Spider Geisha

Superb makeup on this girl at WGT 2008 – the perfect death bride look. Swarmed by togs everywhere she went which she didn’t look happy about (I’m guilty too)
