Today we had a photoshoot at Mission San Jose, in San Antonio. I wore this outfit. My Steampunk character is supposed to be from South Texas, (specifically the defunct Republic of the Rio Grande) and I have taken pains to give her outfits that kind of flavor. Many of the people in that area are technically criollo Tejanos, and not Mexican. It seems like a slight distinction but one my relatives are very fussy about. Touchy points of pride and all that.
