Anomaly Con 2011

This weekend marked the inaugural Anomaly Con, a steampunk convention here in the Mile High City. The venue happens to be on the campus I attend classes at, which happens to be a 150 year old brewery. This makes an amazing backdrop for a genre rooted in the Victorian time period and celebrating industrial aesthetics.

I am primarily interested in the look, and naturally the costuming. I've been building a collection of clothing suitable for the neo-victorian look, and relishing the return to gentler interactions. That is, it is very nice for a gentleman to remove his hat in greeting...

I was constantly awed at the creativity and interesting materials that went into outfits and accessories. It was hard to stop roaming with my camera and actually sit down to enjoy a panel discussion. From steampunk self-defense to writer's block there was even musical performances!

It is however rather saddening to sit in an old brewery and not be able to buy a decent beer... (this is a problem about a dry campus I suppose). All in all, it was an thrilling weekend and worth every moment, I'm already looking forward to next year, and may even produce a collection of spats and cuffs to vend! More on that to come...
