I wanna let you guys know about this Western Steampunk Convention. it's going to be a GREAT photo opportunity, being that much of the con is taking place at Old Tucson Studios.
Where Steampunk meets the real West
Wild Wild West Con is Arizona's first and only steampunk convention and festival. This is a revolutionary re-invention of the standard hotel-based convention. The core of our event is within Old Tucson Studios, a famous movie studio and amusement park built in 1939. For this weekend only, Old Tucson is transforming into the town of Rusted Gear.
The year is 1896 and it is Rusted Gear's centennial celebration. The town is hosting an amazing number of events and an active story line during this celebration including: music concerts, a dinner theater, a tea party with a published author, a charity fashion show, a freak show art show, a mercantile pavilion, a street parade, street performers, a high noon dual competition, a fast draw competition, a gaming parlor, live action stunt shows, cabaret saloon shows, ghost tours, a masquerade ball, a mad scientist lab, costume contests, courtroom discussion panels, how to workshops and much more.
For anybody who is interested in going out to AZ from the Southern CA area, the League of S.T.E.A.M.
is hosting a party bus
to get to the event.
