I think the only place where such a narrow definition would be needed is at the masquerade. If an original steam-punk costume falls within the limits laid out by the masquerade staff though, then so be it.

I also need to make a nod to the fact that the roris that only wear it at anime cons, well, i feel that they're out of place, and wearing a lolita costume. That's a whole nother can o' worms there, take that up on the EGL threads.

Let's not forget that Lolita fashion originated in Japan and is a primarily Japanese/Eastern movement.

Didn't mean to cross the streams here.

Also--I wear Neovictorian from time to time. Love it. HOWEVER, I don't wear it at cons cause I realize all things have a time and place. I feel that neovictorian and steampunk don't belong at cons.

I feel, my opinion, me, blah blah.

If you don't like it let's not bicker like schoolchildren. That's kind of the tone I'm getting from you.

tl;dr Steampunk isn't an asain fashion and this is my opinion.

It's just odd that you would rather let in cybergoth then steampunk. The are both not REALLY 'anime'
Also there are some people who wear steampunk as normal clothing, So what about that. A lolita wearing normal clothes at a sci fi con (and frankly most other places) would look out of place, so should s/he be eye twitched at?

ALSO: I like how you avoided your circular logic. Since some features of steampunk have been featured in animes shouldn't it be ok to wear original steam like it is to wear original lolita?

*and also again... I don't really like the whole asian glorification thing that's going on here.

I only cosplay from anime, but I've been known to crash a few sci-fi and gaming conventions with my anime costumes. No one ever looked down on me or tried to make me feel unwelcome.

I think there's room for everyone at anime conventions. Why the big fuss?

In fact, Trekkies were real popular at the anime con I just went to this past weekend. I saw lots of anime cosplayers trading prop making secrets with the Star Trek cosplayers.

Bickering? No one here is doing that. I'm just counterpointing your assumptions and opinions, and highlighting some of the flaws in your arguement. There is no malice, just common sense.

You can't start a thread with "I don't like X, I don't want it at MY con" and then not expect at least one person to disagree.

At the end of the day there will be Steampunk at cons you attend, best off dealing with it until it fades away into obscurity again.

I don't mind Steampunk cosplay at anime cons. It means more pictures for me to take!

Yes but if steampunk is featured in anime and anime is Japanese then steampunk could be related to Japan.
And since you use the word asian a lot I can only imagine you would be fine with people cosplaying from Chinese or Japanese or Korean etc. animes... So if you are ok with something related to such hugely different countries then why not throw another different one in there?

PFAHAHAHAHAwhat.

Seriously, what.

Go on, walk past the Aunt Jemima and Waldo and Solid Snake and OC fursuit to tell a steampunk they don't belong at an anime con. I have faith that your opinion will be both valued and respected.

why wouldn't steampunk belong at an anime convention.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_steampunk_works


theres a list of movies, anime, manga, comics and all stuff related with steampunk and theres a good list of animes and manga with steampunk styles. i see no problems with it.

Mangochutney, I always agree with your posts. :,D

Anyway, I love seeing non-anime things at anime conventions, steampunk included. I think it's a really cool style, and might like to try it myself.

I never said that I felt Steampunk was the only thing didn't fit in at anime cons.

Fact is that I'm in the minority in the opinion that I like anime at anime cons, and I'm going to step back from the can of worms that I inadvertently opened up by stating an opinion other than the norm to avoid any drama and/or personal attacks from flaring up, like they're starting to.

Peace be wit' cha.
