The Sisters do Steampunk at Dorian's Parlor

                                       Here I am with Gil Cnaan, the mastermind behind Dorian's
Yes, my little zombie snacks, when I’m not writing horror stories or ghost hunting, I’m Steampunking. Gil Cnaan did it again! He and his staff pulled together one hell of a grand Steampunk Event on Saturday, July 20th. Dorian’s Parlor was a flurry of activity as the guests began to arrive.
                                                                    Jane  and Steampunk Granny
                                                  Marianne, Jane, Me and Patti
My sister Jane had her first encounter with Steampunk and absolutely loved it. I wrote an article about the event on Biff Bam Pop! Check out the site and the other writers on this Pop Culture website.

Marianne Bascelli: a writer; health wellness coach, and a very good friend from my days at the Academy of Natural Sciences, attended the event for the first time. She looks stunning. Here is her site: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Marianne-Bascelli-CHHC-The-Art-of-Holistic-Wellness/264930523544897
                                                       Patti and Steampunk Granny
Patti O’Brien: member of the South Jersey Writers Group, Editor, writer, and a very good friend was also a novice of Steampunk, but I think she’ll be attending other events. Here is her site:
It was a grand night and I wanted to mention a few people who made the night special.

Here are my friends from Steampunk Works: www.steampunkworks.com  Make sure you check out their site. They have fabulous clothing and antiques. I also promised a young lady who was a model in a fashion show for Steampunk works that I would promote a few events for her. Here goes:
Pump It Up on July 24th at the Barbary. www.mikesaga.com
Safari Themed Event on August 23rd at the Starlight Ballroom www.mikesaga.com

Makeup Artist Triell Freschi, it is always a pleasure to see you: www.triellfreschi.com

The Fashion show was presented by Nikki Cohen, owner and designer for May Faire Moon Corsets & Costumes: www.mayfairemoon.com  The dresses were stunning.


The Acts
Gil Cnaan always schedules enough diverse entertainment to keep everyone happy. There was a special presentation of Georges Melies Voyage to the Moon with accompaniment by DJ Kiltboy.

When Hugh Casey introduced the movie, all chatter ceased and everyone settled down to watch it. What a treat. If you have a moment, learn about the amazing Melies.


There were jugglers, a classy striptease with a hula hoop; I kid you not. We were treated to several great musical groups: Psych Corporation, The Cog is Dead,

                                            Frenchy and the Punk (my favorite act),


                        This Way to Egress, was awesome and we all danced the night away.


In November, there will be a special Steampunk Event called The Gilded Festival and as soon as I get more information, I will be sharing it with all of you.

Well, my little zombie snacks, it's sad to say that I have to pack away my outfits until the next Dorian's event. But that's okay for now because I'm busy taking classes in ghost hunting 101 in order to join a professional ghost hunting investigative team. Wish me luck.
