Presenting the onstage photos from our Steamcon II Kambriel fashion show in Seattle, WA! The song we performed it to? Aqualung by Jethro Tull... yes, really (though our version was minus the long guitar solo thanks to our friends Summer and Roger kindly remixing it for us)!
Feel free to play this in the background whilst you're looking through the photos/reading the descriptions to get a bit more of the full effect:
I'll likely do a follow up post with some backstage antics as well, but starting things off for now are the runway photos courtesy Amber Clark Copyright 2010 Stopped Motion Photography, www.stopped-motion.com.
