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!
