I made a thingy.
I just recently came home from the show Steam Powered Giraffe played in Bakersfield, and got a chance to snap a shot of my “Saloonerella” Cosplay.
For those of you not acquainted with the Saloonerella character, she is indirectly referred to in their song “Rex Marksley”, in the lyric “all the women blushed and fainted when Rex winked his eye”. And where there is a western hero, there is always a gal to admire him.
She is featured on the lyric booklet (illustrated by Bunny Bennett) of the “2¢ Show” album.
When I saw the album art, I felt extremely inspired by this character (‘cause I like cowboys) and realized that I had about 90% of her outfit just hanging in my closet! Soon after, I inquired about her name, and Bunny Bennett replied, “Saloonerella”; to this day, I am unsure as to whether she was joking, made the name up on the spot, or if that was always the character’s name. ^_^
The first time I wore it at the Calico Ghosttown Halloween Haunt, it won first place as best costume.
When I have a chance, I will post my other cosplays which include: *Zero-suit Samus (from “Metroid other M”), *Femme Indiana Jones, I’m with the other Indiana Jones’ in SneakyZebra’s ComicCon 2013 video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-I3h15VgyE)
*Slave Girl Princess Leia (I know it’s cliche, but it’s a classic)
*Gentern (from “REPO! the Genetic Opera”) * Miku Hatsune (the vocaloid) *Currently working on a Dungeons and Dragons cosplay; a Kalashtar Ardent
Show Poster Gallery Part 1
I’ve done a lot of work on Steam Powered Giraffe’s posters over the years. I bet some of you collect ‘em when you can! While not all of them have ever been printed- wouldn’t it be nice to start your own collection at shows?
Look at this near timeline.
