I got introduced to the Gaslight Gathering Convention when they had a table at last year’s Stan Lee’s Comikaze where I did a brief interview (link on YouTube) about the fun steampunk convention. It’s a great way to be introduced to the Steampunk lifestyle since she’s such a friendly welcoming person that is accepting of everyone. I know as someone who LOVES conventions but hasn’t tried cosplay I think this is the event that might get me all decked out with somewhere to go. I love fashion, the Victorian Era style (VERY complimentary for plus size ladies) and that the men are sooo dashing spats so sexy! Also that I’m a big lover of San Diego! It’s especially welcoming since SDCC can be overwhelmed with the sheer mob of all the attendees and that it’s so spread out.
The event also has Victorian Tea perfect event for anyone of all ages. It’s the perfect opportunity to be transported in time especially those with fancy dolls .. American Doll girls I’m talking to YOU..well parents and grandparents who will PAY for the ticket <snicker>), the opportunity to attend the ball (I LOVE dancing) and a
tour of the Gaslamp District!!! What’s not to love especially since the hotel is offering a great deal for attendees! So let’s head down to San Diego and explore our Steampunk Side! If you’re unsure of what it takes make sure you go to Gaslight Gathering where they have photos of previous attendees as well as follow their Facebook page for outfit ideas!
