Steampunk Events in 2012

steampunkLast week I attended Her Royal Majesty’s Steampunk Symposium at the Queen Mary here in Long Beach, Calif. While there, I learned about few other steampunk events that you might be interested in attending.

I apologize for the late notice on the first one … I’ve been swamped this week! But I hope if you happen to be in Austin this weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to check it out and have some fun.

Steam Powered Giraffe will be there. I saw them perform last Friday and was really impressed. Other guests include O.M. Grey, who I met at the Symposium. A very nice and approachable lady.

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.

    This is Lady Mari! Thanks for mentioning my Costume Walkabout! I hope to see many more folks at my upcoming Costume Walkabouts including those hosted by The San Diego Symphony. Visit my “Upcoming Walkabout” webpage. The best thing about The Costume Walkabout is that is always FREE!
