Photos: Steampunk Cosplay at AnomalyCon 2016

Sci-fi took a right turn at the Victorian Age and never moved on – and the result was steampunk, a cult genre that's here to stay. And that's particularly true in Denver, where steampunk fans gather each year at AnomalyCon for a stellar weekend of cosplay, guest panels, parties and contests. Photographer Danielle Lirette brought back these images and more from the 2016 convention.
