  •  The fashion varies (13+ / 0-)

    a lot.  Most of what gets published are the Apocalyptic Punk versions of steampunk, which is rather depressing.  We joke that steampunk is what happens when Goths discover brown.

    Through OctopodiCon, I hope to capture the zeitgeist of the Victorian Era regarding science and exploration and discovery and get people (especially the younger people) all excited about the future, to show that they can make a difference and do it in fun ways - which includes dressing in fun fashions - pleats, frills, hats, weird accessories and all.

    Itzl and Xoco help, they dress in steampunk, too - goggles, pith helmets, safari jackets, "smoking" jackets, lab coats, ball gowns and suits - and they generally wear red, orange, green, blue - they are already black or brown, so no need to wear those colors!

    All knowledge is worth having. Check out OctopodiCon to support steampunk learning and fun. Also, on DKos, check out the Itzl Alert Network.
