White lace, black suit with shorts

CIMG5436 A partygoer in a white lace dress and a huge silver bow in her hair; a guy in a black suit with shorts. Seen at the steampunk party at SXSW 2007.

The “Futures Past” steampunk party was thrown by EFF and several other organizations at the SXSW conference on March 12, 2007 at Scholz Garden in Austin, Texas. I didn’t know many people there, so I went there mostly to see the costumes. Ah, the costumes! Unfortunately, I don’t know the names of any of the people I took pictures of. On the technical side of things, Austin’s own Robot Group had an exhibit there, showing many all sorts of new flashing, singing, wiggling mechanical creatures I haven’t seen since their last exhibit.
