I also signed up for and paid for the healing workshop that is the same weekend as SteamCon. I am VERY sad about missing SteamCon. Going to conventions and wearing a costume is one of the happiest experiences of my life. But hopefully I'm giving up a day or two of happiness for skills that could last me a lifetime. And I still get to wear my steampunk costume to the steampunk ball in December.
Now it's time to choose my outfit for Noc Noc tonight.
