Pictures from SteamCon II

Just back from SteamCon ll and I was completely underdressed. Nearly everyone there was dressed to the nines. Say, about 1909. Certainly 1869, as this year’s event was titled, “Weird Weird West.” The best kind of weird. Like Custer with goggles, or The Lone Ranger with jetpack weird.

This was my first SteamCon and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The level of whimsy, and flat out awesome seemed to hit a new genre high. It was grand, creative fun!

Next year I’ll dress the part, and party like it’s, umm, 1899.
