Ohayocon Steampunk Competition


Clockwork Crescendo 

This is a contest where participants are judged on the craftsmanship (design, construction, execution, and general presentation) of a costume based in the Steampunk genre. Costumes may be a Steampunk intrepretation of a known character or an original design. This competition does not conflict with the Masquerade Competitions and you may enter both!
You can enter as no matter your age or skill level!

Steampunk Category- This covers all original design costumes as well as reinterpretations of known characters. Must be 65% handcrafted by the participant. Participant will be judged on both Costume & props (if applicable) Props should compliment the outfit and not just a random grouping of things.
SteamProp Category- This is for Props only, Participant's costumes will not be judged. Must be 65% handcrafted by participant. All Weapon & Costume policies apply.

Steampunk Awards
Overall Steampunk King/ Queen (highest overall score)
Best Male Outfit

This competition will take place on Friday and the Overall winner will be introduced to Ohayocon during the Masquerade (provided they are not competing in another costume). Overall Winner will receive convention admission and a prize. Other winners will receive prizes as well.

Just in case you were wondering about the competition- you can request a registration form at

Hello Ladies and gents!

I hope everyone is keeping warm as the temperature starts to drop here in Ohio. Following up on my last email out I have some news so here goes.

SO at lot of people have been asking about Ohayocon and I can get badges for a few people who are willing to help out with the con. We are going to be running a steampunk gallery where people can setup outfits and props to display for con goers to gaze upon. The room will be locked at night and staffed during the day. Which reminds me if anyone would like to contribute anything to the gallery that they have made let me know. Now for those people who are not doing panels but still want to help out and earn a badge here is what we need.

"helping staff the cosplay gallery (at least 2-3 people a few hours a day- we are short on con staff so having the 3 steampunk groups will help) you know it's pretty easy- make sure people sign in, and i'd like the crews to talk to people about their stuff and steampunk in general. If anyone is interested we could use bodies backstage during cosplay as well and at lolita crush saturday morning. I'd like to have some people in gear from each group for ambiance and ready to help out if we are short"

So if anyone is interested send me an email and I will let you know what needs to be done. I need to have a final list in by mid December so it's first come first served.

Next up on January 12 The Archon shall be hosting an evening with Eli August ( It will be a small potluck style parlor where Eli (guitar and ukulele) and Mike (upright Bass) will do an acoustic set for all those in attendance and pass a hat around at the end for a few donations. This show is to help provide them with funds to get back home to Baltimore, Maryland from Madison, Wisconsin. The event will be at in the Captains Quarters unless someone with a larger home would like to volunteer. Let me know what everyones opinions are on this.

Last but not least I'd like to get as much of the crew together for an end of the year meal either lunch or dinner, potluck or at a restaurant. Do we have any suggestions on a Day, time and place?

Your input is greatly appreciated!

Hello all

It's not really a fetish party. Some people wear fetish wear, some people dress goth, a lot of people wear Halloween costumes, and some people wear tshirts and jeans. It's kind of like any theme night at Outland.

Here's the FB event for Outland Saturday -!/event.php?eid=118783441509230&index=1

Sucks that you can't make it to Trauma. Yes it is a fetish party. I've never been but the boyfriend says its lots of fun. I'm not dressing too skimpy aka in a costume that involves pasties, not my style.

Yeah I just found out about Trauma yesterday, so my outfit isn't ready. Wish I could go... I heard it was a fetish party kind of thing? I was supposed to go to one of those last year, but it fell through last minute. So Outland it is then. Do you have an info link?
