DragonCon, oh, DragonCon....
There is, every year, a blood drive near the YA track rooms. Vampires line up next to corsetted and begoggled Steam-Punkers, Elves, Zombies, Jokers, Storm Troopers, and the astounding variety of one-of-a-kinders.
There are more and more Steam Punk costumes. The men are gadget-encrusted, carrying weapons of infinite copper/bronze/leather/lens/and goggle design. The woman are mostly Victorian ....lovely corsetted gowns with modern twists here and there. But I saw a few like this one...a woman actually dressed for the kind of adventure Steam Punk books usually contain. I have a Steam Punk novel banging on the door. I look forward to writing it.
