Not Out of Steam Yet | Wild Wild West Con 2016

Wild Wild West Con 2016

  The Steampunk genre marries elements from the British Victorian and the American Wild West, with the alternative history idea that steam is the primary power source, rather than electricity. This was the fifth year that the Wild Wild West Con 2016 has taken over Old Tucson Studios to host the country’s only fully immersive Steampunk convention.

Phoenix DinoCon 2014 Event Review

Daniel and Dawna Davis are two local artists that have taken their DIY spirit and turned it into a successful business. Not to mention they

A Look Inside “Steampunk Style”

I was excited for this book for a number of reasons. I love Steampunk. If I could any literary world to live in it would be a steampunk one, sorry Batman. Something about it makes me all giddy. The second reason is that I am currently in the process of writing my own steampunk novel and I need ideas for clothes and things like that. I’m sorry, I don’t know much about the steampunk concept,
