Dragon*Con and Steampunk Star Wars!

Well, another Dragon*Con has come and gone! We had a blast this weekend costuming, seeing friends, and getting our party on. ^_Q

The Outland Armour crew participated in the steampunk fashion show on Friday, one of many wonderful events presented by the brand new Alternate History Track at Dragon*Con. We modeled our newly created Steampunk Star Wars designs, and they seemed to be a pretty big hit with the crowd. It was a lot of fun! All of the models and designers in the fashion show did a great job and there were some really beautiful designs from everyone involved. Excellent stuff.

Earlier on Friday, Lindsay and I were representatives for Outland Armour on the Steampunk Maker's Panel, and then Sunday the whole crew presented our Steampunk Costuming with Outland Armour panel. Both panels went well, but we especially had a great time hanging out with the crowd and answering questions at our Sunday panel. Thanks again to everyone who came out to see us, and our apologies to anyone who didn't get in. Hopefully the con will see fit to give the track a bigger room next year!

So all in all, a fantastic Dragon*Con. We took tons of photos, all of which I will be posting to our gallery on Zenphoto, as well as to my journal here as soon as I get them back from our photographers.

Our Star Wars group included the following characters:

Queen Amidala - Megan
Padme Amidala - Christa
Luke Skywalker - Craig
Mara Jade - Lindsay H
Princess Leia Organa "A New Hope" - Laura
Princess Leia "Slave Leia" - Meredith
Han Solo - Joe
Chewbacca - Ryan
Darth Vader - Mike
Boba Fett - Danny
Aurra Sing - Lindsey L

I did already manage to find a few good snapshots around the net however! So without further ado, here are some teaser pics of our new Steampunk Star Wars costumes!

Sets of the Boba Fett and Darth Vader armor are available for purchase on commission, as are steampunk light sabers and blasters. Email me at Laura@OutlandArmour.com if you're interested.

Anime Weekend Atlanta is only 10 days away, so we have to take one deep breath to recover from Dragon, and then it's back into the workshop again!

Thanks again to everyone who came to our panel! Much love!

I am FLOORED by the creativity and awesome job you guys have done redesigning one of the most iconic science fiction films into steampunk. Just amazing. Rock on.

I especially love the Boba Fett costume. Making something so immediately recognizable yet so distinct and fresh takes a lot of ingenuity.

What kind words! Thank you so much! We have a lot of fun doing this stuff. <3

Those are friggin' FANTASTIC! Love Fett's costume, in particular!

It was good to meet you. I saw a couple of other SW steampunks around, too.

Did you see teh awesome powered wheelchair?

The Professor X? He was amazing! We snapped a photo with him, hee.

Yes, it was beyond cool. I need to get my pics loaded. Tomorrow.

Well, later today.

My favorite thing about the Fett costume-- and I'm not sure if this is intentional or not, because it doesn't really matter-- is how the two buckles on his chest look like the form a "B".
Sep. 8th, 2009 04:32 am (UTC)
As always, was great seeing you guys and you looked fantastic!!! <3
Sep. 8th, 2009 04:58 am (UTC)
Holy smokes - you guys all look amazing. I absolutely love the wings on Vader's helmet! And I can't wait to see more photos -- please post again when you have more! ^_^

Awesome! Yep, Boba is particularly effective but as a bit fan of mara i like what I see so far :)
Sep. 8th, 2009 06:16 am (UTC)

Well played, people, well played!! I would also be keen to see more pictures of this. Very steampunk and very recognizable as the original characters too.
Sep. 8th, 2009 06:43 am (UTC)
Agreed, you guys should have some proper portraits taken!
Sep. 8th, 2009 10:17 am (UTC)
Ok that's just FANTASTIC!
Great job you guys!

Re: <-- see icon
She's posted a few on her Flickr, and I'll post more here when I get the professional ones back from our photographers. But for now here's her Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/miss-lindsay/

She and the Luke are a real life couple and they were just sickeningly cute together the entire time. <3
