World Steam Expo

World Steam Expo

Well we survived our second World Steam Expo and lived to tell some very interesting tales of the weekend. Charlie, Aloysius, Halcyon and I all had a very good time. The number of attendees did seem a bit lower this year but everyone in attendance had a great time. I saw lots of new faces, and surprisingly there was a significant minority who were not in steampunk gear. But the people who I spent most of my time interacting with were old friends and familiar faces. Steampunk is a fairly small community and it was very exciting this year to realize that I am starting to know many of the people who do the circuit. People like Lord Bobbins from Telsacon, Jeff Platt of Highwind Steamworks, Scott and Samantha from Frenchy and the Punk, and friends like Kylan Toles.  The bands were great as always, and we particularly enjoyed getting to see Steam Powered Giraffe live. I’ve had their song Honeybee stuck in my head ever since. The parties were legendary and the people were amazing. Take a look at the pictures and see for yourself.

The four of us finally arrive.

Amazing costuming was everywhere.
