International Steampunk Symposium

More than half a decade ago, dozens of airship crews from all across the state, the nation, and even the globe converged in Cincinnati, Ohio to compete in the first ever Steampunk Olympics and began the annual gathering known as the International Steampunk Symposium!Founded in 2012, the International Steampunk Symposium is one of the longest running Steampunk festivals in the world. On a mission for the promotion and preservation of all things Steampunk, the Symposium plays a vital part in its dedication to the Steampunk Community, and is also a jolly good time where you are likely to find several friends whom you have yet to meet! Our theme for 2018 is Steampunk: Superheroes and Villains

CostumeCon 36

May 11th-14th 2018

San Diego, CA 92108

Costume-Con is an international convention that has been devoted to costuming of all kinds since 1983. All skill levels, from beginners to masters, and all types of costumers are welcome, including cosplayers, historical reenactors, doll dressmakers, science fiction enthusiasts, fantasy fans, and more. The theme will be “Ports of Call” and you can interpret that as broadly as you like. Maybe you’re captain of a dirigible tethered in town. Or perhaps you work on an intergalactic cruiser currently in orbit. Maybe the year is 1942 and you’re shipping out to the South Pacific.
