Up in the Aether Two Year Announcement (by LanceNotHiding)

Kind of a big deal if you want to know whats happening in the Midwest Steampunk scene.  Thats the stuff through Detroit, Chicago, Toledo and all the areas around.

Our monthly party for steampunk is now ascending into the pre-production of a new steampunk convention!

Thought you should all know :D

Question of the year

Never before have I been asked so many times “What is steampunk?” Most of my answers were cute or trying to be funny. But once I actually think about it I’m npt 100% sure what to say.
When trying to define a culture it’s never simple. It’s never easy. You will never appease everyone. But just the same, you can never be wrong. This is because everyone’s experience is completely different.

So you know how I haven’t bothered you enough about this awesome steampunk convention in may?


The name is Up In The Aether, the website is http://www.upintheaether.com/ and it is going to be AMAZING. It will be in Dearborn (really really close to Detroit), Michigan, and it’s going to have such awesome people as Aurelio Voltaire, V is for Villains, Eli August, Vorteque, Elizabeth Bear, and Scott Lynch, as well as many more!! As well as all that, we’ll be having panels about clothing, about the historical aspects of steampunk, plenty of other panels and events besides, and, of course, so many wonderful people wandering in their full, steamy garb!

The dates are May 24-26, and you should definitely all be there!
