Gaslight Gathering 4, May 2nd - May 4th

The Gaslight Gathering Steampunk Convention was very special to me this year. My wonderful boyfriend Daniel of five years proposed to me during the Steampunk Ball on May 3rd. It was so amazing. We were in the Ball where they were playing some wonderful Jazz music and he said he wanted to go outside for some air and so we walked out and were heading down the staircase and the photographer Jerry was standing there and said hi as we passed him. Then as we got half way down the spiral staircase Daniel got on one knee and proposed all the while the photographer started to take pictures. Daniel was so nervous and cute. So I'd thought I'd share the photos from Jerry Abuan that he took. He did such a great job they are so amazing and it's so great to have photos from that special moment.

So now that I've got to share that with everyone I'll share all three days that we got to be there. First of all. It was so cool to be able to be there all three days and be able to experience everything and hang out with all my fellow steampunk friends!

My Mum insisted I get my nails done which I thought was pretty impressive for me. I almost backed out but I did it. I really have a problem being touched especially by someone I don't know. It can be almost painful.
