It was another wonderful year for Colorado's first and only Steampunk convention! There was a wonderful historic venue, with lots of great spots for photography. A long list of musical artist and author guest to give talks and performances. Movies, gaming, workshops, a Grand Ball (that's when this photo was taken), competitions and lots of other fun events! I was one of dozens of vendors with handmade goods for helping people build their outfits.
But there were some downsides, the old building is confusing, and being on a college campus there are draconian rules. Also, people who came from afar (and there were many!) had trouble finding affordable lodging nearby. Not to mention the lack of cheap close parking. Next year is already booked for a large hotel venue, so many of these problems are going to be solved!
