In an effort to highlight the occasional Steampunk event in my current location of Dallas, TX, I’d like to bring your attention today to a “Steampunk Fashion Ball” at Panoptikon in Deep Ellum on Friday, May 7th at 9PM. The House of Mob will be presenting their latest line of Steampunk fashion for the viewing delight of all Dallas Steampunks. Best of all, the event is free; there is no cover or entrance fees to witness this exciting event.
House of Mob has a five page spread in Twisted South Magazine that came out on May 1st at Barnes and Noble, Borders, Book World and Waldenbooks across the USA, Puerto Rico and the UK with some stores carrying the magazine in France and Spain. It is a limited edition magazine, so if you like what you have seen on House of Mob’s website, consider picking up a copy, and be quick about it!
This is a excellent opportunity to meet some local Steampunks in a town where Steampunk seems scattered and a bit disorganized. I’d like to be able to say that I will with all certainty be at this event, but with the way my work is, I can make no certain guarantees to my presence. If you decide to go, let me know how it was!
Where you will be able to see me, with all certainty, is at A-Kon in June, specifically, at the Abney Park concert. I have no idea as to why Abney Park is playing at A-Kon. The connection between Steampunk and anime is feeble at best, but the fact remains that Abney Park will be in Dallas, and I therefore, must be there, and I hope you will be as well. Early registration for A-Kon is closed, but you can still buy tickets at the door when the Kon starts.
