Steam Cons

What’s the point of wearing an awesome costume if there’s no one around to see it (or at least, no one who gets it)? There is none, which is why steampunk aficionados like to get together at least once a year to show off. 2013 is almost over, but there are still a few steampunk conventions coming up before the end of the year. Here’s a list. See if any are located near you.

People in my neck of the woods will have to wait until March, when AnomalyCon arrives in Denver. Maybe I’ll be able to put together a decent costume by then…

Also, next May, the Steampunk World’s Fair, largest steampunk festival in the world, happens in Piscataway, New Jersey. So if you’ve got a few bucks to spare, be looking out for that one.

Lots for a steampunk fan to do! Namarie!
