Steampunk Mini-Con Downtown Library

I attended a "Steampunk Mini-Con" at the Oklahoma City Downtown Library today.

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

There is a slight typo in the OctopodiCon address, it's http://octopodicon.org.

Thanks, and we're so glad you liked it. I know where your awesome softie is and can have it for you at OctopodiCon!

Thanks, it is misprinted on the book mark? That's what I used when I wrote it. Yes, I do want my toy! Thanks for saving it. I'll be there.
