Thursday Setup and Friday
Some of the Brass Engine crew arrived Thursday to set up the steampunk area and make preparations for opening day of Planet Comicon. After the time machine and some tables with props were set up, the crew retired to a local bar and grill to relax and prepare themselves for what lied ahead.
Friday was an exhilarating success! As the crowd of thousands poured into the convention center, the steampunk area was one of the first things they would see and experience. We felt honored to be front and center in such a huge arena. So many folks admired the props and asked for their picture on the time machine (see Time Machine photos here!). When the convention closed on Friday, we all made the short walk to a local mexican restaurant to celebrate the birthday of our very own Steampunk Vader.
Just like any other convention we attend, there will always be shenanigans. One of the big reasons we decided to make the Steamworks and Shadows web series was how much fun we had being in character. Of course, Saturday was also filled with some of the best cosplays, and we even got a steampunk group photo in front of the time machine!
The last day of a convention is always the hardest. You’re completely exhausted, but it’s been such a wild ride that you push yourself to make it through one more day. We photographed even more amazing cosplays, and even got our photo with the Delorean from Back to the Future!
