Be very impressed with the steampunk couture these brides pull off

Photos by Jillian Powers Photography

Alexis and Chelsea got married just a few months ago in a small ceremony in Illinois. And, no big, they were only decked out from head to toe in absolutely fabulous steampunk finery. Alexis is making it look like she wears a corset, bustle, and high-heeled boots every day, and I only wish I looked as good as Chelsea does in a checkered vest and pinstripe pants. The ceremony took place at a Spanish-style mansion, amid bouquets of Edgar Allan Poe book pages. Being awesome is kind of this couple's stock in trade, you might say. They're both artists, working from home on an Etsy jewelry store and three webcomics (and, y'all, I love my webcomics. Go check out Alexis and Chelsea's). Looking for more cool geek cred? Be on the lookout for their spinner rings — convenient stand-ins for 10-sided dice!

  1. Squee! I love all of this. Spats, tails and corsets, oh my! And please tell me those gears are chocolate! I hope the blue-corseted gal got her modesty panel straightened, but I really want to know where she got her outfit. THOSE COLORS.

    • Critsuccess is an awesome company. Tell your husband he is amazing.

      I saw their kickstarter pretty early, and pledged without a second thought. I ST World of Darkness games and my wife plays in them, so literally having d10s on hand was a sweet dream come true.
