Conventions - Good, Bad, Ugly ~
We love to go to conventions, of course to make some money at least to cover expenses... We've been priviledged to participate in events such as Steampunk Worlds Fair a Jeff Mach Event, also his WICKED Faire (an awesome event), Anachronism & Alternative Lifestyles Show.. Teslacon from Lord Bobbins himself as well as Steampunk Fantasy Faire in New Hope PA.... but I think some of our favorites are Horror events, you meet amazing people that think even more outside the box, NOT to offend ANY of our Steampunk friends. Our foremost is Steampunk.. but sometimes Steampunk people get stuck in their box. The word steampunk is thrown around daily like a sack of potatoes and fits wherever anyone places it.
We've seen Steampunk from the Victorian age all the way into the now... in films, literature, music and design. Steampunk is in other genres whether we accept it or not, and will be all consuming in everything because of the amazing aesthetics it presents into the future of life around us.
How do you feel about Steampunk ? Do you see it around you ? I'm probably thwarted a bit as I work in the field of Steampunk so I do see, feel and hear it daily..
What Convention do you enjoy ?
