Part two of our Steampunk gallery is chock full of giant metal arm. Yay.
You didn’t think we were done with the 5th annual Steam Punk World’s Fair, did you? The big event happened over the weekend in Piscataway, and as we saw in our previous post, it drew out a ton of talented cosplayers with insane imaginations.
So many, in fact, that we have enough images for a second gallery. I’m not going to overstate this, but we may have saved the best for last. Hula hoops? Steampunk Avengers? Giant fists? There’s all of that and more in today’s slate of images. Read on, and enjoy a glimpse of what you missed.
First, as some of you no doubt know, Airship teams are a common theme among the steampunk cosplay crowd. And here, we have Eddie Connor, Quartermaster Greaves, Melanie Connor, Helen Resseguie, Kyle Robertazzi, Amanda Pancoast and Jason Lee, otherwise known at Chaos Aether

Here’s Messrs. Rob Stater and Paul Fasciana of “Her Majesty’s Colonial Marines,” along with Mike Savin of Burning Sky Cosplay, in front of one of the Steampunk World’s Fair’s most popular attractions, a 16-foot tall robot created by Thomas Willeford of Brute Force Studios.
See more of Burning Sky Cosplay here.
Azkadelia Hattress performs a series of acrobatic stunts that this picture fails to do adequate justice to. Amazing stuff, and you can see more of her work here.
A trio of Potter-verse characters apparently got off at the wrong train station. From left, Lorraine Rosenberg as Ginny Weasely, Elizabeth Voss as Bellatrix Lestrange and Ashley Monticello as Harry Potter. I’m impressed that Ashley is doing a straight up Harry Potter – well, a straight up Steampunk version – and not a Rule #63 Harry Potter.
Here’s Megan Cross, fitting right in as the Mad Hatter, and Kirsten Davis as a science hero version of Wonder Woman. Cross also runs plush store Cross’ Critters, and you can visit here.
Aya Kartal gives an impromptu hula-hoop demonstration.
Husband and wife Robin and Jennifer Fordham show off their homemade, Arduino circuit-board powered contraptions, the “semi-automatic melody generator” and the “Aether prognosticator.” More of their work can be seen at their Facebook page, Cons, Costumes & Cosplay.
Emperor Justinian, of creative collective The Red Fork Empire poses with his mechanical arm, “The Will of the People.” Look upon his works, ye mighty.
Steampunk Avengers Matt O’Grady, Greg DeBonet and Peter Koumparoulis. Apparently there were quite a few Lokis running about. No doubt they had a steam-powered rainbow bridge thingee.
And here’s one of those Lokis, Jesse Jarvis in dapper Victorian garb. Apparently, he’s using the Teseract to mind control steampunk Link (this time portrayed by Emma Muller). You can see more of Jarvis’ cosplay here.
Noblewoman Nina, with “Herr Otto von Kraken, gentleman spy,” and Steampunk aficionado Stuart share the company of “Martian killer” Thadeus “Griff” Griswald.
Last but not least, here’s Karen Ulric as Ms. Frizzle, ready to give the class of “The Magic School Bus” a lesson in alternative history.
