Cosplay at the Nova Albion Steampunk Convention!

by Megan S.


This past Saturday, Nails and I ventured down to Santa Clara in California for Nova Albion, the Bay Area's yearly steampunk convention.  2011's theme was "The Wild, Wild East" and cosplayers were happy to work Asian, Russian and Middle Eastern influences into their costumes.  Keep an eye out for my review of the exhibition later in the week [spoiler alert: it was incredible!] as well as more photos and videos from the event.

Check out the photos after the jump!

  1. Why are there so many goggles?? Two of these people have goggles (or a face mask on) plus goggles on their heads. Do they break their goggles so often they need a back up?

  3. Kyle- I'm guessing they were good scouts when they were kids and still live by the motto, "Always be prepared."

    Chip- Thanks! We'll post photos of all the Wondercon goodness after the convention this weekend so keep an eye out. I'll also link to it on the o'deck.
