One of the highlights of the gaming and steampunk convention Templecon, held earlier this month in Warwick, R.I., is the steampunk fashion show.

Those of you who know me personally understand that, although I enjoy seeing all sorts of wonderful and well-constructed cosplays, cosplay mashups have always been my favorite.
