This week, it's all about the gatherings, it seems!

Some photos from GenCon give a slight hint of how much steampunk there was. It was impressive, to say the least.

If you're looking for places to show off your finery and meet others, there's Renovation SF, going on this weekend in Reno and featuring a decidedly steampunk bent. One example is a panel entitled " Ultimate Steampunk – Could the Victorians Have Built a Flying Carriage?" David Malki! will be taking photos and sending them out on Twitter! On the other side of the country, the people behind the ever-fantastic Coilhouse are throwing a fundraising party in New York City this Sunday, and it looks like it's going to be amazing.

Looking into the future, the Time Traveller's Ball is happening next month here in the Midwest (come visit us, we're fun people!), and then in October, back on the west coast, Anaheim is hosting "Steampunk: History Beyond Imagination." You can't complain that nothing is going on in the world of steampunky stuff these days.

Many thanks to Bunny, who sent me the link to these 1920s mugshots. I'd featured a few of them before here, but this post annotates several photos with the stories behind the faces, adding to the experience!
