ImagiCon, a Science Fiction and Fantasy convention in Birmingham, Alabama on May 21-23
is hosting a STRONG offering of Steampunk panels and events.
One of the events is the Steampunk Inventors' Alley
- where Steampunk makers, inventors, and builders can exhibit/model their own work/creation in an interactive forum that allows Con guests to meet the maker, "tour" the work, ask questions and see demonstration of working pieces.
Due to limited space, I am seeking inquiries from
Steampunk Makers who are interested in exhibiting their work.
Please send a brief description of your work including favored materials
(leathers, metal, modded plastic, recycled materials etc.) with sample
photos and/or a web link to images of your work.
Ideally, the work should be wearable and or easily portable. There may be limited tables for some items, but most created work will be worn or held by the exhibitor. Selection for the Steampunk Inventors' Alley entails a commitment from the maker to attend ImagiCon and commit two hours to "being on display" and answering questions from the crowd.
ImagiCon is a popular destination for Steampunk fans and this is a grand opportunity to show off your work to a welcoming crowd. I've also pasted BELOW a list of the additional SP offerings at ImagiCon
in hopes that fans of the craft AND the sub-culture will join us in Birmingham, Alabama on May 21-23, 2010.
I look forward to seeing your work!
