MEDINA – Members of the Buffalo-based Pyromancy performed with fire on Friday night during the SteamPunker’s Ball at Leonard Oakes Estate Winery.

Leonard Oakes for years held a Steampunk Festival but has split the event over several days throughout the year. The winery started putting on “the festival of bizarre proportions” in 2011.

This costume won “Best in Show.” Most of the attendees at Steampunk wear futuristic costumes with a Victorian theme. They wear outlandish costumes, with top hats, goggles and robotic arms as accessories.

This costume won for “Best Mechanics.”
