This is actually from Norwescon, but I'll be looking forward to the steampunk costumes and cosplay at SteamCon this weekend. There's always plenty of nifty costumes to look at there.

I’m looking forward to Steamcon in a few weeks! Here’s my itinerary.


Steampunk Reimagines Fairy Tales Regency B 5:00PM – 6:00PM
We’ve been seeing Steampunk reinvent familiar fairy tales more and more. From novels like Snow to comics like the Gears of OZ. Does Steampunk allow us to explore old stories in new ways or are we just changing the setting?
Lisa Mantchev (M), Cat Rambo, J.R. Boyett

Women Explorers: No Place for a Lady Auditorium 6:00PM – 7:00PM
Take a look at the lives of women explorers in the Age of Steam, as they battled not only the dangers of travel in often hostile climates, but the censure of their society for traveling where few would dare go.
Carmen Beaudry (M), Cat Rambo, Lori Edwards


Great Quests of the 19th Century Regency C 2:00PM – 3:00PM
The Victorian and Edwardian era saw explorers often times competing with each other as they searched for everything from the source of the Nile to being the first to reach South Pole!
Cat Rambo (M), Joshua Merrill-Nach

Cryptozoological Expeditions of the Victorian Age Maple 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Great expedition in both fact and fictions has taken us on treks looking for dinosaurs in darkest Africa to the Yeti at the top of the world. Come explore the hidden world with our intrepid guides as they take you on a Victorian Cryptozoological tour of the world!
Cat Rambo (M), Anthony Jon Hicks
