With the end of April fast approaching, I traversed the web to find interesting events happening far and wide. Quite a few caught my attention. Not that catching it is overly difficult, though retaining my attention and interest is. One of my many faults. Or virtues depending on how you look at it.
I degress. The events that I followed through and both hope to attend or wish I could afford to attend are below. If anyone happens to find there way there, a comment would not be unwelcome.
The Steampunk World Fair is happening in Piscataway, NJ. Not that far, especially compared to some of the other events I dream of attending. The Steampunk World Fair boasts being the friendliest event for those that are coggers and coggettes as well as those that are just curious about those who are steampunkers. Personally, this is where I would go, and hopefully shall make time to, as a novice to the possibilities of steam. There are sure to be numerous examples of DIY fashion and gadgets. Performers such as steam-DJ Vourteque, Steam Powered Giraffe, and Barquoe & Hungry will be there entertaining the masses, with invitations to dance, enjoy, and celebrate.

There are tons of other entertainers attending the Steampunk World Fair as well as workshops to distract and amaze the guests.
South Korea’s Steampunk event, The Art of Victorian Futurism, will be open until the 18th of May. Of course, I can’t read the scroll, but the pictures are fascinating.
And this weekend the 3rd and 4th of May, Das große Steampunk Kunst- und Kulturfestival in Deutschland is happening. The Aethercircus will not only have concerts and workshops, but a fashion show as well for inspiration. This website I can actually read, unlike the one in South Korea, but if you are not one to comprehend the German language, scroll down – there should be English at the bottom of the page.
And so those are the events I most wish I can wonder around and gather ideas and information at. Can you hear my long sighs?
