On the Bridge by *ArcanaPhotographic
Just starting out with photography, so I’m trying to get my work seen. Hope you like it. Props to a wonderful (and infinitely patient) model.
Photo taken by the amazing Brandon Herman. It was for a pin-up girl/steampunk themed photoshoot for a steampunk-themed burlesque to benefit Coney Island after it suffered in Hurricane Sandy. A great time for a good cause :)
I have found a new favorite Steampunk Beauty.

Even better? they’ve had someone pledge to match whatever is donated from now until the end of their campaign.

Really? Steampunk Poison Ivy? This shit is getting ridiculous. What… she waters her plants with a brass sprinkler carried on her back? And ALWAYS with the goggles.
God, this steampunk shit is being overused.
Hey there! Sorry to hear you don’t like my costume. Fortunately for me, a lot of people do and recognize the work that went into it. I was with a large group of highly innovative individuals that did something new with their favourite DC characters.
Oh, and speaking of Steampunk conventions, you hopefully noticed the distinct lack of gears or other unfunctional paraphernalia on my costume. While the goggle are typical, there was a good reason for their addition. As Poison Ivy has always been a botanist, I felt it was a good idea for her to have some sort of eye protection. She works with volatile chemicals on occasion. Also, it helps keep dirt and such out of her eyes as well as disrespectful bullshit such as your comment.
Thanks for playing along!
you madam are verrrrrrry beautiful
Burrrrrrrn. and she is STUNNING
Steampunk beauty of the day is sassy as she is beautiful! Way to tell off those nay-sayers!
I am flabbergasted! This image and dialogue exchange is *still* getting hits on Tumblr. I never had even the slightest inkling it would go so far.
My eternal thanks to those who have enjoyed and commented on this. There’s really no better satisfaction a cosplayer can receive than knowing their work has been acknowledged and has maybe inspired others.
The Steampunk community has your back.
strawberryoverdose asked: I don't know if anyone mentioned it yet, but I've been going through all your beauties (I just found this today). And I noticed on the picture of Felicia Day you left a comment about Felicia modeling for Kato? Kato's business is called 'Steampunk Couture' and 'Clockwork Couture' is run by Donna Ricci. If you check out Felicia's Channel on youtube 'Geek & Sundry' you can watch The Flog episode where she goes to the Clockwork Couture store and tries a ton of stuff on and has that photoshoot. =D
Thanks for the info!
