I have to turn down two Halloween party invites if I want to go to the dance at Steamcon (and I might have to skip that too so I can get up early the next morning for the workshop). What was Steamcon thinking scheduling their convention the weekend before Halloween? Don't they know that's a MAJOR party weekend? Common sense should tell that anyone who loves to dress in a steampunk costume probably also loves to dress in other kinds of costumes. And that means they want to be at all the other costume parties that are the same weekend as their convention.

I hope who ever planned this thing comes to their senses before the schedule next year's Steamcon.


I think you're taking me too literally.

I'll break it down:
Clubs = dark, crowded, alcohol, smoking (sometimes)
Parties (big) = dark (some areas), crowded, alcohol
Parties (small) = maybe not dark, but still indoors after dark, have to sit on furniture (need comfy costume), same with 'snuggle piles'.

Again, either way, the sentiment is the same. If I spend a lot of time and effort (esp if I make it from scratch) on a costume/outfit, and others do too, I'd rather go somewhere where I can see there's show off mine, and people watch other costumes. At a con, there's room to move around, better lighting (or during the day activities), alcohol & smoke-free areas, and things to *do* in between the visiting, catching up, and (maybe) partying. I know other people are like that too.

Also, it's not like Steamcon is *on* Halloween. Most holiday events are on Halloween weekend.

The End.
I do wish I was going to Steamcon. But at least I have my steampunk costume ready for next year. Heck, by next year I will have a different steampunk costume for every day I am there!
I was just saying that's why they might have done it so close to Halloween, cause you asked what they were thinking.

I'm not going either, but that's because I didn't want to.
