I meet many interesting people; several of whom are pictured here. I also heard a presentation on games from the Victorian era and even got to make a "steampunk toy", which I unfortunately left behind (sob).
Here are some of the folks who came in costume:
|Kit Holley and Mandy Cole with daughter|
|Caterra King, Shadowleaf Joyce, and Nikki Watson|
|Anna and Ryan McKinley|
Ryan has authored two Steampunk books: The Pirate Bride and The Lost Crew
|Heather Copple, Samantha Royka, and Matt Copple|
|Zenon Awful (that's the name he gave me)|
|Olivia, Andrew, and Nicholas|
Cat and I had a great time. I learned a good deal made some good contacts. I hope that some of these become good friends.
I am looking forward to Octopodicon, a much bigger Steampunk convention, or "Con" that will happen October 5-7 at the Magnuson Hotel in Oklahoma City. For more information, you can go to http://octopodicon.org
