This was not your average historical exhibit.
At least, not according to the lens of MG Photographer Bill Lescohier, who captured plenty of color at the International Steampunk City at Morristown’s Historic Speedwell on Sunday.

As MG Correspondent Aaron Karlsruher explained last week, Steampunk is…
a whimsical art genre that blends alternative history, Victorian culture and science fiction, “steampunk” envisions the world as the 19th century English may have imagined future technology running on the steam power that fueled the industrial revolution of their time.
Evidently, it also includes 19th century burlesque, as envisioned by 21st century Americans!original article
This is an awesome blog post by mastermagnius
, talking about what Wicked Faire
is. There are some fantastic pictures and a great synopsis of the event. Toward the end of the blog, the writer talks about various acts that appear at Faire and mentions the White Elephant Burlesque Society:"The nights are filled with acts like the White Elephant Burlesque troop, Voltaire, and Shadowcasting of Repo The Genetic Opera.
The White Elephant Burlesque troop is a highly entertaining and engaging performance troup that hark back to the days of speak easys mixed with a modern day geek aesthetic. Make sure you get there early since it is standing room only long before they start their performances."Photo by mastermagnius
