Big River Steampunk Festival
I got to spend Sunday and Monday at the Big River Steampunk Festival and I had a wonderful time. I went by myself as everyone else had something already planned or just wasn't into Steampunk. What is wrong with those people? lol ; )
But I did have a good time once I warmed up to the event, and I am not being punny even though the weather was quite hot. I have seen lots of people on the Big River facebook page complaining about the heat. Yes it was hot did it ruin my good time? NO! I have experienced equally hot weather in May at the Ren Faire. I have also experienced torrential downpours and I think in all a hot summer day is far better.
Besides I had a good excuse to wear my Pith Helmet. Yeah! I pretty much went as myself both days, as in I wore what I tend to where everyday. I just added the Pith Helmet on Monday. And I got to pick up a lovely parasol from Artifixer. I had seen a lady with one earlier and thought what a lovely shape and later while roaming the vendor tents I spotted it and knew it had to be mine.
Perfect for keeping the sun off. And as Amelia Peabody says ...
