For the first year, there is dedicated steampunk panelling at Fan Expo, courtesy of members of the Vancouverites for Steampunk community, and organized by Tracey Ernst and Fan Expo. In addition, the Time Travelers’ Bazaar is making a special appearance in Artists’ Alley, in our own little enclave featuring 12 of our vendors! Step out in your steamiest splendour and join the thousands of costumers at the geek extravaganza that is Fan Expo!

Steampunk Panel Schedule (something every day!):

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 10
5:30 pm – Room 2
STEAMPUNK 101
You’ve heard about it, but what exactly is Steampunk; aside from being the fastest growing sector of science fiction culture? Here is your chance to ask the questions you have and gain the insight of the many Steampunk experts that are attending Fan Expo Vancouver. Panelists include: Kristina Uyeda, Bob Lepine, Deb MacKenzie (Rosemary) and Dolce Douleur.

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 11
11:30am – Room 2
STEAMPUNK PARASOL & NERF GUN DUELING
How do the fine and gracious ladies of Steampunk settle a disagreement? With a parasol, of course. It’s not fiction; in this demonstration our gals will be using the official rules from Madame Hemlock’s parasol dueling league. And an added attraction, the spectacle of specially modified Nerf Guns in the dueling arena! Panelists include: Jayne Barnard, Kevin Jepson

4:30pm – Room 2
STEAMPUNK GADGETS, GIZMOS AND PROPBUILDING
Fantastic gadgets and weapons play an important part of many a Steampunk costume… Steampunk is after all a form of Science Fiction, and gadgetry of all sizes help add the “Science” to that equation. Our panel of expert prop-builders have years of experience and will share techniques and tips on making your own. Panelists include: Bob LePine, Scott Murphy

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 12
1:30pm – Room 2
STEAMPUNK COSTUMING ON A BUDGET
It might seem like everything called “Steampunk” costs an arm and a leg, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Learn some tips and tricks for getting a steampunk look starting in your own closet, or from items picked up at a traditional store. Panelists include: Tracey Ernst, Deb MacKenzie (Rosemary), Anna van der Loos-Meyer, and Dolce Douleur

3:30pm – Room 2
LEATHER WORKING AND COSPLAY
Eva Foam and Worbla are great! However, leather is classic, durable, and long-lasting. Over the course of human history, this versatile material has been used for clothing, accessories, and armor. Get to know it, see it, smell it! Join us on a tour of how we use this amazing material for cosplay and everyday uses including handling, storage, tooling, and much more. Panelists: Dolce Douleur, Bob LePine
