I was hoping EJ Wesley would've met us at ConDFW, but noooooooo. He had better things to do--like promote his latest book, Blood Fugue.
Even though I know Angela, LD and I would've been far more entertaining than a book tour, duty must come first. Go pick up Blood Fugue so EJ's sacrifice will not have been in vain. It's only 99 cents.
I'll talk more about the con when I'm more recovered, but meanwhile I'll leave you with some steampunkery. I was so stoked to learn how creative you could get building these costumes and accessories. It really appealed to my frugal side.
The pictures don't do these actors justice. There was so much in the details, makeup and even to the stitching on the clothing. They were so much fun to watch while they went into character too.
I apologize for not getting everyone's name. But my hat is off to them. They brought steampunk to life and turned me into an avid fan.
Steampunk was especially popular at this con, from the characters in costume to the Dealer Room where they sold books, accessories, clothes, and glossy magazines with slick photos of models in sexy steampunk attire.

So how about you? What's the last conference you attended? Have you attended any where people walked around in costume?
