Dressing in Steampunk outfits is known as cosplay,a portmanteau word constructed from the words ‘costume’ and ‘play’. Cosplay is the perfect descriptive noun, because ‘play’ infers ‘fun’. And we were all having tremendous fun at the Steampunk Charity Ball. As always, I was stunned by the creativity and craftsmanship of the ball gown and suits.

It takes a lot of imagination and a selection of different skills to be a cosplayer. I can’t sew with any confidence, but I manage to sew my own costume items. I’m not a great crafter, but I managed to dress a bear in Steampunk gear for our door prize. The loving details lavished on the ball outfits leaves me in awe.
