I note that the Salon Con
(September 2008, New Jersey) is still accepting applications from performers. Anyone here tell stories in Victorian, neo-Victorian, Edwardian, or Steampunk attire?
If you're not a follower of the comic book, fantasy convention, or Burning Man scene, you may need an introduction to Steampunk.
The New York Times has just what you need, although it doesn't begin to cover the beautiful visual aspects of the movement. Link.
