Steampunk photo shoot!

"Bring Your Camera!" If you're going to go to STEAMFest, you're probably going to be wearing your best antiquated expressions of Victorian fashion. You're going to the Festival to get transported to another fantastical time that never quite existed. You may as well get some snaps to send to the folks at home.

Using the Harryhousian approved process of "rear projection" we will project a scene onto a screen behind you and from there you can pose for a friend or a Whiskey Tango Foxtrot representative with a camera that can shoot you in your attire atop a blimp, inside a fiery inferno, or exchanging blows with an automaton.

Bring an image file or a great idea that we can look up and we'll put you in that scene.

SteamFest 2011 at 4:30PM in the Classroom

Wilco Tango Foxtrot, as already mentioned, will also be presenting Journey to the Center of the Earth!
This year at STEAMFest, those droll chaps from "The Game Is Afoot" will be mocking, callbacking,and generally steampunking the 1959 
steampunk classic, Jules Verne's "Journey to the Center of the Earth." 
Join them for a campy, yet watchable film where James Mason undertakes  the daunting task of reaching the center of the Earth while Pat Boone  undertakes the more difficult task of trying to come off Scottish. Put  on your goggles and load up on smarm and join us at 8:00 at the Academy  Theater in Avondale Estates.
All the fun and excitement begins tomorrow so be sure to arrive in time to get your tickets 
before all the fun begins 4:00!

Venusian Trading Company

I am pleased to announce that one of the finest builders and purveyors of all manner of steampunk finery will be joining us once more at STEAMFest this year. Bill, Cat, Becky and Gail have displayed their talents at such fine establishments as Chattacon, Anachrocon, Dragon Con, Anime Weekend Atlanta and more! They make such wonderful items as weapons (most creatively constructed), clothing, accessories, jewelry, and of course goggles. You simply must see them!

Here is a link to their website:

Also, returning after a delightful performance at The Midwinter Fling, Wilco Tango Foxtrot will feature Sketch MacQuinor, Brian Troxell and co. in a hilarious but loving commentary on the classic Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Third Annual STEAMFest!

There is more information in about STEAMFest 2011!

There will be a performance by the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company: a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the art of audio theatre. Since their founding 24 years ago they have been performing live audio theatre at wide variety of such notable venues as DragonCon, Stone Mountain, the World Fantasy Convention, and now STEAMFest!
There will be a Victorian style wrestling match presented by Platinum Championship Wrestling (PCW). PCW presents crowd pleasing excitement and I'm sure their Victorian presentation will be no exception.
Also, there will be a staged reading of the new play The Adventure of the Capercaillie Bridge by Maegan Mercer-Bourne. This play explores the family life of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes while the two brothers team up to solve one of their most baffling crimes!
And of course there will be an artist gallery with the best in Steampunk clothing, jewelry, weaponry, and artwork, a high tea, many exciting workshops, and panels!

Be sure to get your tickets now!
