Steampunk Xena

Inger Talbot, better known within the greater Steampunk community as Steampunk Xena, is a fire performer and enigmatic personality. A staple of the steampunk community since 2012, having discovered her intense passion for cosplay and retro-futurism while at Balticon in Baltimore Maryland. Beginning with her first persona/outfit in 2014 at the Steampunk Unlimited event in Strasburg Pennsylvania. She unveiled “General Security” a modernized take on a vampire hunter, sporting iconic eye fashion aka sunglasses and inspired by military attire, she was dubbed that moniker due to the eccentric arsenal the character wielded. She first premiered her Steampunk Xena persona in 2016 at the now defunct Steampunk Worlds Fair, and has been expanding upon it updating the pieces to keep it fresh. In 2016 she also discovered a new joy and passion through fire art, spinning, eating, and breathing fire etc. Her next step was to join the Pyrophoric Fire Troupe, eventually branching outwards by creating her own troupe, the SteamFire Femmes. She has proudly performed at venues along the east coast garnering awe and applause. And after recently moving to Michigan has brought her own brand of fire and steampunk shenanigans to the Midwest, with expansions to the West Coast and Central areas of the United States on the horizon.
