Showdown at Unobtainium - Coming Soon!

Ok Steampunks... the ultimate battle between Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison is going to happen and you can be a witness. Come to the forgotten mining town of Unobtainium, Texas, on November 10 and 11 and experience the event for yourself!

From their website:

"Showdown at Unobtainium 2012: Tesla vs. Edison is a two day themed experiential event featuring music, vendors, strolling and stage actors, Vaudeville-style performances, and interactive art. The look and feel is Steampunk/Victorian/NeoVictorian/Dark Victorian/Weird West/DieselPunk/Clock Punk."

My Mad Scientist's Lamp will be a part of the art installation and you will find me there under my canopy. I will be selling my handmade wares along with some hand picked found items. Come in and browse or join me in a cup of coffee or tea in my sitting area. I am working on some fun ideas for decorating my "pavillion" so come and check it out.

And don't forget to stay for the show Saturday night! The incomparable Marquis of Vaudeville take the stage and will amaze you with their spectacle of splendor.

On the first day of class my freshman science teacher told us that the only constant in the universe is change and he was so right!  Change is coming. Good, bad...don't know for sure but we will see...

We got my father moved from Georgia last month and he is settling in well. I get to see him much, much more than I have since I was in high school and that is good.

In the meantime, the masquerade last month was so much fun! As was the cd listening party for the Marquis of Vaudeville's new CD, The Great Promenade of Fools & Ghosts. At both events I got to wear my spectacular new dress made for me by Deborah Gerard of Time Traveler Outfitters

Coming up, I am NOT going to Emerald City Steampunk Expo. Instead, I am going to Encounters Con in Wichita, KS on October 19-21 and then Showdown at Unobtanium outside of Austin, TX on November 10 and 11. So definitely look for me at those shows.
