Time Traveller’s Ball: A MidWest Steampunk Extravaganza
Calling all retro futurist time travelers and neo-Victorian lovers! MidWest Steampunk is putting on an extravagant do in celebration of the 145th birthday of one H.G. Wells. Perhaps you’ve heard of the chap?
The Time Traveller’s Ball will have all manner of steampunktastic delights; bands, burlesque, belly dance, vendors, art, the hookah lounge, and more. What’s the ‘and more’? I don’t know, neither the website nor their Event listing on Steampunk Empire go into further details. I suppose it will be a surprise.
