My friend Owen has informed me that there is an upcoming steampunk convention in Detroit
called the World Steam Expo. Brilliant!
It looks like there are going to be tons of events that I would like: a mad science fair, high tea, craft classes.
I'm kind of wondering what a steampunk masquerade would look like. Masquerade is usually associated with the Renaissance, not alternative-19th century. Also, I feel like if I go to a masquerade right now, all I'm going to be able to think about is the feminist theory I read a few months ago on the subject. Which might be reason to go in and of itself.
