Steampunk’d cosplay

Steampunk pretty much does what it says on the tin (or brass). The steam half of the name taking influence from steam powered engineering, particularly from 19th century British and American culture (think Danny Boyle’s 2012 opening ceremony – factories and engineering). Punk hinting towards the grunge and rebellious nature, loving a gritty, clunky and unapologetic engineering process over the sleek and often hidden or invisible process of digitisation.

Steampunk translates well to fashion and cosplay in particular, for those who want to adapt a character into a look they have created they add a steampunk edge, making them more badass as unique. These are the best of the best…

”My work is multi faceted, and is inspired by my perception of reality through mediated modes of communication. It is also much to do with ones reading of scale, as well as idealistic, and comments on class and taste also. I am interested in simulacra and make large free standing sculptures that physically exist in the real world as well as fabricated miniature constructs (or still lives) that I photograph to assume an alternate reality, these mirror the physical works that I make to form a circulatory dialogue between fact and fiction”.
