Your costumes are put together very well!

Is the red band in some of these photos somehow significant?

Hi! Thank you!

Yes, actually. In our fictional steampunk world we made up for the airship pirate characters, our airship is called the H.M.S. Amaranth, after the Amaranth flower which represents eternal beauty and fortitude. It's often alluded to in classic English literature, most notably in the poems of Milton.

So, we wanted to incorporate an accessory into all our costumes that represented the Amaranth flower, which is a big droopy red blossom. So, we made these red bandannas with big drooping, hanging pieces. They're kind of like our pirate gang colors I guess, lol. ^_^

You're very welcome. Your entire group {crew?} does excellent work. Here is something you may like: [link]
It's an article on Cracked.com that has links to, among other things, *Airships & Submarines.* Something to aspire to, I suppose?

I, too, have a red armband, but it doesn't go-over too well when I wear it around. It was just something else to add, I suppose, & I don't Mind the controversy. People have actually called the police because of "the Nazi they see around town" & I even kind of made the local newspaper over it {someone wrote a letter complaining to the editor}, but they can't do anything about it, even if I was one of those Neo-Nazi assholes, absolutely overflowing with racism, bigotry, & hatred.

Oddly enough, Ayin, Kat, & Autumn all like the outfit. They think it's awesome, *even though they're Jewish.*

I suppose I've bothered you enough. Sorry about that. Keep up the great work! I hope to see more stuff from you all soon!

Would you mind if I used some of your photos for my friend's panel? I need to find examples of steampunk fashion. You'll receive full credit, of course.
