Hello, friends! Today’s giveaway is a bit more ephemeral than previous ones, but no less delightful: we have two pairs of passes to three of the grandest steampunk gatherings that will be happening in the United States over the next few months:
SteamCon II (November 19-21, 2010 in Seattle, WA)
The Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition (March 25-27, 2011 in Santa Clara, CA)
Dorian’s Parlor (monthly in Philadelphia, PA)
Although steampunk conventions are a relatively new phenomenon, they in some ways mimic the science fiction conventions you may be familiar with, except with a decidedly Victorian flair, and more—and more spectacular—costumes. Panels! Readings! Concerts! Gadgetry! Dance parties! And so! much! more! Just click on the links above to see what’s in store at the individual events.
Since attending real-world events is somewhat geographically limited, we’re going to leave this one up to you: when you comment, just tell us which convention is most geographically proximal to you, or which ones you’d be willing to travel to.
We have two pairs of passes to each of these conventions, and will gleefully award them to six random winners (geographically dependent) who comment before noon on Sunday, October 24. Step right up, and out into the world!
The Official Rules: To enter, leave one comment on this post—duplicates won’t count—by noon EST, Sunday 10/24. The winner will be chosen randomly. Please check your email Tuesday or Wednesday; if we don’t hear back from the winner in 24 hours, another winner will be chosen.
