This should be a banner year for Steampunks & Dieselpunks attending SDCC!
Firstly, there will be an actual *gasp* panel organized by steampunks about steampunk! I don't have the actual title yet, but it'll be something like Steampunk in Media. It's on Saturday, July 23, 10 am - 11 am Room 23ABC Guests will include Phil Foglio, Lon Muckey of Mantecoza, Greg Broadmore & more. FB invite here http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=221966507828466 but not much info yet
Secondly, there will also be a meetup & photo shoot at 1 pm that day on the stairs outside the mezzanine (where the fan tables are, look for the stormtroopers!) along with this year's Starburner Awards http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=134544416620005
And last but not least, that night will feature a Steampunk SDCC wrap up party with Abney Park and Unextraordinary Gentlemen & more. The show is ALL AGES but will also have beer & wine. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=210847495621189&ref=ts
I am also working on this year's Steampunk at San Diego Comic Con list which will highlight exhibitors, special features, panels & meetups, and offsite events. It's a lot of work, so don't expect it immediately. It will be found at http://machinafatalis.blogspot.com/ when ready.
Looking forward to seeing some Dieselpunks come out and show their stuff!
Dress your Diesel best & we'll see you at Comic Con!
