ConTemporal Steampunk Cosplay Gallery

Check out some of the best steampunk garb from out in the Aether.

This past weekend, the first annual ConTemporal convention moored its dirigible in Chapel Hill, NC. The science-fiction gathering had a strong concentration in the steampunk tradition, complete with clockwork prop displays, steampunk authors like Cherie Priest (Boneshaker) touting their wares and fanciful Victorian costumes. The Escapist team had a great time exploring the airship station and meeting the denizens of a bygone era.

Here are some of the individuals, families and couples who made an impression on us, recreated in jpg format from the original daguerreotypes:
