BV4 Giveaway: A Pair of Weekend Passes to TeslaCon 4, the Congress of Steam


Since we’ve always been about international relations, it only makes sense that today’s giveaway comes from TeslaCon 4: The Congress of Steam! The premiere steampunk immersive convention in Madison, WI, is setting its sights globally for its Year Four. The propagator of this event, Lord Bobbins, has been inviting steampunk communities around the world to participate. One of the stated goals is to have a space where people from different communities can talk about what steampunk is like where they are from, and — perhaps — even come to some sort of fandom-wide agreement. That’s pretty ambitious, but whether you want to come for a rousing debate or some cultural exchange, I think that TeslaCon 4 has a lot of potential for being a convention to remember for years to come.

And Lord Bobbins is serious when he says he wants international folks to come — in fact, he’s giving away hundreds of weekend tickets for free to all international attendees. And Beyond Victoriana is lucky enough to grab a pair of tickets to give to one lucky winner. This is a $136 value and a helpful discount for anyone planning on booking a flight to come to the US this November (but anyone inside the 50 states has a chance of winning these too of course!).

  3. This terribly exciting! I’ve admired TeslaCon since its inception, and am so excited about the plans for this year. Of course, I should be delighted to attend.

  4. This is wonderful! Kudos to Lord Bobbins! I would love to be a part of TeslaCon and to share my experiences as a Steampunk POC / Steamfunkateer. 🙂

  5. Oh Brilliant, yes please! What a great way to pull Steampunks from all around the world!

    I haven’t been to Templecon yet. It would be awesome if I get to go though.. Its just a bit expensive cuz I gotta take a plane i think.. I live in Boston. I hear its a really good and fun convention though! A few of my friends went last year and they loved it. 🙂

    Having been to the most recent Teslacon, I will attest- this is not an event to be missed if you can arrange it. There is an energy, an atmosphere, a vibe to this even tthat is unlike any other convention. It isn’t just unique, it is priceless.

  15. This would be amazing!!! Travel, plus international groups and steampunkers! Count me in! Thank you for the opportunity. 🙂 ❤

  16. Kendra Dawn

    I NEED to be there!!!!

  17. Karen LeMieux Erickson

    I already have my ticket, but would love to share a pair with my steampunk folks Jean Martin and Christopher Erickson in San Jose.

  18. Kim

    We bought our tickets, but I would love to have a pair to give to a friend. We need to introduce Steampunk to more people, and Teslacon would be the most awesome way to do it!

  19. Wow. This would be a great weekend! I’d love to win these!

  20. I would love to be chosen so that I wont be the only one in my family that can go due to the cost of 4 of us wanting to go.

  21. Susan Claire

    I would love to win!

  22. TeslaCon! Man, that would just be the best! My friend Gordon, a fellow puppet builder, always goes to this Con. I would love to win the opportunity to go to such a great Con. This is an amazing blog, thanks for putting such work and passion into it. Kimberly

  23. What a fabulous goal! I think steampunk needs to encourage more worldly participation and celebrate the whole multiculturalism that really came about thanks to the sun never setting on a certain empire! 🙂

  24. allen

    This is great. Thank you for doing this. Fingers crossed I win.

  25. AKS
