Steampunk Exhibition Ball 2011

Steampunk, nurse a subgenre of alternate history and science fiction, ailment is one of the more bizarre yet visually striking events to happen in Seattle that I had no clue existed until I was invited to cover the Steampunk Exhibition Ball for The Stranger.  This year’s annual event was held at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) in Montlake, and it featured heavily costumed attendees, burlesque, absinthe, waltzing, and costume contests.  It was a fun event illustrated with more strength through photos, so please enjoy some below, with more on Flickr. Also, check out the full article published in The Stranger here.
