Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention March 4-6 2016by Lady Faie on 02/26/16
It's that time again for the largest Western-style Steampunk Convention in the United States! https://www.wildwestcon.com/
And what a wonderful setting! Held at Old Tucson, a historic film location built in 1939 by Columbia Pictures, home to over 300 movies and supporting not only the film industry but also the re-living and ambiance of the "old west". http://oldtucson.com/
The annual Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention, now on it's fifth year and no relation to the movie of the same name, has been awarded Best Regional Steampunk Convention.
Often attended by the likes of Abney Park, Kato, Doc Phineas, Steampunk Boba Fett, and Loop Rawlings. The historic styled buildings, entertainment, hands-on workshops, hundreds of patrons dressed in their creative costumes, and shopping will satisfy any Victorian/Edwardian Sci-Fi enthusiast.
