Agreed, Mlle. Loveless. I'm big on 'never forget'. Always be aware of the reality one bends when it comes to cosplay. Doing so fuels the re-imagining and holds the true past up for justifiable scrutiny.
You're welcome, Madame Glacer! This clip is part humor - in that it exposes a mainstream audience to steampunk - and part critique - in that it shows how steampunk can romanticize a period of history that wasn't great (understatement of the year!) for people of color. I like it for doing both of these things...
I agree! Although Milton is quite a handsome name...choosing a persona is sooo much fun!
I do too, Madame. In the end it's all about fun. Which reminds me. I need a Steamfunk name...
Love Hari Kondabolu! Thanks for posting Anita Loveless. I was at SPWF 2013...and is was a blast in the best sense!
Milton- good point made. For me, I have no problem dealing with the realities of the true past but love the imagined future aspects of a Steam world. For instance, I love the TV show 'Defiance' not because it is an absolute truth but because it is a 'what if?'. And Hari looked fab in his Steampunk wear no matter how much he joked it. Go on with your bad self, Sherlock Homeboy!
That was a great video clip.
The interesting thing is that many people of color that participate in Steampunk don't want to deal with the realities of the 19th century. We've had a few that have expressed a dislike with Steamfunk because we touch on the subject.
Did everyone see this?
This popped up on Reddit. Thought it belonged here, too.
