Less than one week!
I am sooo excited!
Wild Wild West Con II Steampunk Convention and Festival is scheduled for Friday, March 8 through Sunday, March 10, 2013 at Old Tucson.
WWWC2 is America’s first and only Steampunk convention/festival to take place in a western-themed town.
WWWC2 celebrates three fun-filled days of Steampunk fashion, merchants and music. You’ll find Victorian sensibilities combined with retro-futuristic technology against the backdrop of an 1880s town. Hundreds of devotees will descend upon Old Tucson to celebrate all things Steampunk. Much like a Renaissance Fair, many of the guests as well as convention staff members and guests will be outfitted in full Steampunk regalia.
Steampunk culture blends Victorian Age dress with a retro-futuristic vibe. Think Old West/Victorian dress meets inventions based on writings of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne with a
sprinkle of the "The Wild Wild West." Add cogs, gears, goggles, and tricked out guns and you get the idea.
The Con features more than 40 panels, workshops and concerts during the three days of the convention. Topics will range from "101" classes for those new to Steampunk to "make and take" workshops to advanced hands-on classes for those who want to expand their skills. Panels include interactive entertainment, exclusive video presentations, Meet & Greet panels with many of the artists and musicians, and more! Even little Steampunks will enjoy arts, crafts, and games as well as all the cool stuff already in place at Old Tucson.

WWWC2 will benefit Kids Need to Read, a non-profit organization that works to create a culture of reading for children by providing inspiring books to underfunded schools, libraries, and literacy programs across the United States, especially those serving disadvantaged children.
