On the Street

Ellen the Victorian Adventure Woman (as someone called me). I rose above the radar with this outfit. After years of being the stealth fan, it was disconcerting to have people looking at me and commenting on my costume. ;->
Rocky and his mistress, with Bill in the background. Rocky is a perennial favorite. He's got three or four new outfits every year, with something splashy in the Masquerade.
Steampunk Wonderwoman -- fantastic costume.
She's a costumer, so gave us a detailed rundown on her costume. She was also at the Steampunk Con in Seattle(?) earlier this year. 80% of the participants were costumed, many of them with working parts!
Two Adventurous Gentlemen.
Rocky takes a break in the Dealer's Room.
The "Spiderman", an adventurous spider hunter whose quarry got the better of him.
The Ice Cream Social (what there was of it -- they ran out of ice cream 15 minutes into it. Part of the general poor planning we experienced all weekend. (Double booking panelists was another.)
Making me some rum raisin ice cream with liquid nitrogen, always fun to watch.
Found it humorous.
Being a gentleman, Bill leant his hat to a young lady who was dancing the male role with her sister.
One of WETA's kewl steampunk guns.
Folk Harpist Moira. She has an operatic voice (she did selections from Phantom and Cats to show it off). She had a nice selection but she talked more than she sang.
More to come. 8-]

Progress is slow now, with light switches and trim and blinds to be done.

Translucent Ceiling Panels 8-]
So it turns out you can get translucent ceiling panels (among other things). It's hard to take a picture of a light, but these panels are glowing from the skylights in the roof. These are the samples in Steph's office.
There's glass in the windows and knobs on the doors!
Flash off the glass in Bruce's office.
Same shot without the flash.
Bill and Jan watching the Muppets' Bohemian Rhapsody video.
This is getting a little old.
