Day 1 of Steamcon

Top half of my day 1 steampunk outfit

I really enjoyed my first day at Steamcon, a three-day steampunk fan convention in Bellevue, WA. I actually felt underdressed. The outfits were amazing.

I went to the Airship Awards Banquet and met new people over achiote chicken and cheesecake. I went to Cat Rambo's reading of the book she just finished. I went to a panel on the Bessemer Process (an inexpensive industrial process for transforming molten pig iron to steel). And I gathered DIY tips for transforming an apartment into steampunk chic. There was also 19th century astronomy and a short panel on writing.

Today promises to be just as jam-packed. I will be going to my first tea. And maybe learning about fencing. I'll try to take some more crappy iPhone pics for you. :)

Cool googles. In a group of people the googles designate you as the leader. That's what I learned from anime. haha

The last con I went to was also Steam Punk themed. There was a woman with wings. They were awesome.

The outfits were so amazing. I could've sat and watched everybody walk by for hours if there weren't so many cool panels to attend. I sort of wish I'd brought a better camera. :)
