I attended the World Steam Expo in Dearborn, MI on Saturday May 29, 2010. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect based on some of the things I was hearing prior to the event. Would people show up? Would it be well organized? I needn’t have worried. From the second I arrived, it was clear that the attendance was high and that just getting a glimpse at what people were wearing alone would justify the price of admission. But I got much, much more. The vendor booths were filled with great clothing, costumes, art and steampunkish accouterments. There was music by bands like Tartanic and Abney Park, a fashion show, various kinds of enlightenment in the form of seminars, and a fancy dress ball to top it off. But the thing that really made it worth while was seeing friends and all of the amazing outfits people put together.
