Just returned from A-kon and wow... It was great.
I missed it last year but this year really made up for it.
Revenge of the Penguins was the theme and penguins are my fav.
Originally the JRock groups selected didn't really entice me to go but when I heard Abney Park was going to be there I knew I had to grab the chance to see them live. It was a great concert and full of energy (Granted the crowd didn't move around a lot... My friend believes it is because the steampunk gear is so heavy. XD) They played a couple songs I hadn't heard before and I look forward to their next album with the direction they are taking.
There were many steampunk outfits and it seems that was the most common type of outfit this year. I had a great chance to meet up with old college buddies, talk to other steampunk artists and just grab a chance to relax.

It was a great time and I am already getting amped for the next con, San Japan on July 9-11th.
There is a chance that some of my items may be available there. More details to come.
