The Steampunk Symposium in Seattle…and GG Cosplay Contest

Girl Genius Cosplay at the London WorldCon!

Girl Genius Cosplay at the London WorldCon!

Our beloved SteamCon is dead, more’s the pity…especially since Phil and I were finally going to get to be guests this year. Oh, well.

Taking its place is the Seattle Steamposium. The folks putting it on also do Steampunk conventions in Sacramento and Long Beach–and I believe they’re also the people responsible for the fantastic time I had on the Queen Mary a year or so back. At any rate...

The Seattle Steamposium is September 26-28. It’s coming up soon. Phil and I will be in the Vendor’s hall, as usual, and I hope we’ll see a lot of you there. The main reason I’m posting, though, is that the costume contest has a “Girl Genius Cosplay” category. I’m kind of hoping someone will actually enter in this category…this could be kind of embarrassing, otherwise. By the way, the category is there not because we asked for it, but because the lovely people putting on the convention thought it might be fun. In other words, they did it on their own. Excuse me while I squee a bit…

Squeeee!

Okay. I’m good.

So, if you’re in Seattle, and heading for the Steamposium, please consider entering the Costume Contest! In your Girl Genius gear! Yes! We’ll be giving out some lovely prizes, and I’m even going to try to have new badge ribbons for the con, assuming I can get them in time.
