Costuming: Genevieve's Steampunk Fairy

One of my yearly traditions is attending DragonCon here in Atlanta every Labor day weekend. I absolutely love seeing all of the wild costumes that are on display there. This year, I met an incredibly talented costume crafter named Genevieve. I first saw her on Saturday when she wore a stunning costume depicting one of the "weeping angels" from the Doctor Who episode, "Blink". Unfortunately, it was too late in the day to do any filming. I made arrangements to meet up with her the next day and, when we did, I was amazed at the costume she had on that day as well, an original Steampunk Fairy. This video is all about that costume and how Genevieve created it. You can read more about Genevieve on her web site. She offers up several tutorials on crafting and costuming.
