Emilie Autumn at House of Blues, Chicago
Here are ChiIL Live Shows' original shots of Emilie Autumn's unique show at House of Blues last month on 2/25/2012. We were delighted by the demented, daring world of a Victorian Era Asylum and the colorful characters who dwell within. Emilie Autumn and her Bloody Crumpets put on a memorable live show and were a joy to photograph. The music, set, costumes and underlying social commentary were impressive.
The audience was great, too. We saw many familiar freaks from the Chicago steampunk, Renaissance Faire, and Comic Con crowds, most of whom live for an excuse to dress up. We were enamored with the creativity, talent and passion that went into this show, and Emilie and company truly seemed to enjoy themselves and the audience just as much as the audience adored them.
