Why I am Over Steampunk

You might have noticed a considerable lack of Steampunk pictures in my batch of photographs from this year’s Dragon*Con.  This is for several reasons:

1) Nearly all of the Alternate History (aka Steampunk) events were held in the Westin hotel and…

2) I never went to the Westin (despite the fact that the Whedon track was held there, I love Joss Whedon and all he has done but didn’t attend any of the panels this year) and…

3) I never went to the Westin because I am over Steampunk.

I have to admit, I was a little relieved about Steampunk being given its own corner, far away from me.  Yes, I had an initial honeymoon phase with Steampunk and costumed Steampunk my first Dragon*Con and briefly last year.  Jon and I even attended last year’s world record attempt for most Steampunk costumers in one photograph.  But seriously, y’all, I am so over Steampunk.

Over It
