As for the topic of this thread I really hate to break it to everyone but Steampunk has been at Conventions since the Mid 80s in some sort or another.

Here is what it boils down to from someone who has worked Convention for over 20 years we(The folks who run cons) need to make X amount of money to turn a profit so we can keep having Cons very few if any Cons in North America don't set limits on what type of Costume you can wear the one exception is Pedro bear which many Cons are now starting to outlaw for legal reasons. I personally have been doing Steampunk for 20 years and I must say that over the past 10 years I've notice that it has grown allot at Cons but the same can be sad of other costumes b eit Star Wars,Doctor Who,Lolita ect ect it the nature of the Cons as more folks have better access to all sort f stuff the more different and exciting costume are being displayed at Cons. Which really if you want to get down to the brass tacks the diversity in Costume and Genera make for a far more exciting Con then just the same old stuff.

I thought I mentioned Conneticon....and Anime Boston....

And there is no way i can make it to Canada or NY on my budget thanks... =/ But maybe these are newer cons because I have not heard of them even when I googled a couple years back.

But it doesn't matter I like to keep local as possible because of budget. Portcon is the only one I missed that I think I would attend. Not that it matters, AB is pretty much the only con I can attend being insanely poor and a college student.

And the point is kind of moot, these are still mostly Anime cons.

.
Agreed. Steampunk is simply an evolution of industrial/goth fashions that has gone more mainstream. Eventually it will lose its freshness/novelty, just as all trends do, and transform into something else.

God I hope so as someone who has been doing some sort of Steampunk for over 20 Years this new fade is teeth grinding sort of reminds me of how Lolita became the thing. As for being at Convention well as I stated the more variety of cosplayer that come to Cons the easier it is for these Cons to keep going.

Well Bakuretsu Con is going on 12 Years now as for Bamcon this is their 1st Year, Bakuretsu Con haas been around for a few years can't remember how long but unless your 21+ you can't attend this Con I think it's the only 21+ Con on the East Coast and Arisia has been around since the mid 80s one of the 1st Cons I worked at.

I think I have heard of Arisia but, never Bakuretsu.

Thanks I figured if anyone would know of some good nearby cons it'd be you (though I did know of Boston comic con, I didn't know Conneticut had one) Why haven't I found have these cons? @_@

I am hoping of going to AAC, but I hope I can scrimp up enough. Simply it's just my financial situation atm that keeps me from attending many cons =/

I go to conventions to enjoy them.

I very much enjoy steampunk.

When the two are combined, it makes me a happy camper, whether it belongs or not.

Well I can think of this website have you check out the calender section also if you belong to some of the other Cosplay website most of them have calender some have a better break down.

This site is rather good for Anime,
http://www.animecons.com/

as for Comic and ScFi there are a few good one's out there also. Same goes for Steampink I belong to this forum if your into Steampunk I highly suggest you join.
