We are a flamboyant bunch. We try to offer a visual as well as an aural feast at our shows. What we lack in boyish good looks, we (over) compensate with wardrobes that reflect our personas in vivid detail. We usually stand out from the crowd, with Weekend at the Asylum being a notable exception. This year marks our second appearance at the world's largest gathering of Steampunks and we enjoyed it immensely. We were hard-pressed to stand out from the crowd but gave it our best effort. Mr. E was resplendent in a new bespoke creation from Diamantequeen Designs and Lord Harold debuted a stunning new airship pirate coat. The attendees of Sunday night's Punkus: The Steerage Ball were bedecked and bedazzling in a stunning array of amazing costumes. Some of them were so ornate that it looked like it would be impossible to dance in them, but dance they did. The Captain of the Lost Waves opened the show, taking us on an amazing journey across time and distance. Next up were the wonderful Frenchy and the Punk with their charming and crazy carnival of fantastic songs. We closed out the ball with our usual madness, songs of death, drink and debauchery. The sprung dance floor was put to the ultimate test as manic Cossack dancing ensued. It was great to see old friends and make new ones and we look forward to next year's shenanigans.
