This coming weekend: Otakon!

A quick note to say that I will be a-wandering again this weekend: this time, to Otakon, the largest anime convention on the East Coast! There, Lucretia Deafour and I will be assisting friend-of-the-blog Jonathan Nori at the con’s steampunk events. See our schedule below.

Steampunk 203: A DIY Workshop
Friday, 5:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Workshop 2 (BCC 343-344)

In this workshop, you will learn the beginnings of making steampunk gear all on your own! Learn from a real artisan crafter, Thomas Willeford of Brute Force Leather and leave with your very own steampunk ray gun!

Steampunk 201
Saturday, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
Panel 6 (Hilton Key Ballroom 1-6)

The Fantastic Made Real! Retro-futurism and the merging of the technological and industrial is a common theme in anime. The uneasy merger of technology and culture, and the variable progression between the two, offer a way to explore very human themes in contrast to cold, hard mechanics. This panel explores Steampunk in anime, literature, art, fashion, and science.

Hope to see some readers there! 😀
