Some people completely outdid themselves. Linda Lea took a page out of Rasputina's book for this outfit. She's wearing a dress over a skirt, both artfully gathered, boots with that classic Victorian heel, a form-fitting top, a lacey ruffle necklace she threw together, and a top hat over some very Rasputiney braids. A whole lot of steam, and a nice bit of punk. And Paul looks dashing in two pieces of a three-piece suit. Most of the guys were rocking vests and the adhesive mustaches I picked up.
Katie's costume was ingenious, and I believe it all came out of her closet. A lacey white top, one satin skirt artfully gathered into a can-can skirt, great lace-up boots, and best of all, a holster for her pistol way up her thigh.
Jenn constructed unbelievable costumes for herself and Jon - I can only imagine how much time this took.
Jon's got an aviator's cap and leather-rimmed goggles, and that pipe is classic. His cravat, watch fob, and homemade wrist-guards full of gadgets steal the show. Suddenly he's not just a guy wearing a leather jacket and khakis - he's a Victorian man riding a fast aeroplane to the FUTURE.

|Goggles and a vest? Instant steampunk.|
|Shannon is on an adventure! Sweeet holster for her|
ray gun, totally hot leather cincher, Victorian key
around her neck, and googles for high speed travel.
|What better time for an antique mink stole than at a |
party that takes place about 100 years before
PETA was establisehd?
|Way to rock that vest and watch chain, Rob!|
|Craig's armband and cravat are great touches.|
|Ladies, get ready for some sexy corseting!|
|Jane is giving me Victorian boot envy.|
|And Fish's pointy lace-up boots should help her |
evade the clutches of Jack the Ripper.
|Heyyyyo, mustache party!|
