10:58 pm - Steampunk Festival a Success!
Yesterday's Steampunk Festival was very successful. The museum was hoping for 300-400 people and got over 1000! People seemed to be having a great time.

My talk on props only had a few attendees, but it started only half an hour after the festival opened so I am not surprised. In any case I had a nice chat with people about prop ideas. After that, I strapped on my personal airship and had great fun wandering around the festival while wearing it. I can actually get through crowds quite well -- it's tall, not wide, so as long as I do not encounter any wandering stiltwalkers it's fine. I got lots of compliments and posed for many photos, and at the end of the day I was declared the winner of the People's Choice costume contest, so my ego is quite happy! :D

There was also a raffle. I donated a prize, a painted Nerf Maverick, and also bought some tickets to support the museum. Of all the prizes available, guess which prize they pulled my ticket for? :P I told the MC "I made that, so pull someone else's name!" ;)

Here are a couple of photos:
