By far the best though, was the guy with the wings. They laid flat against his back, and he had a lever or pull cord or something that made them flip up:
DJ Gopher did the music, and was wonderful as always. The Illuminari bellydance group performed to Abney Park and a couple others I didn't recognize:
And you know that Gangnam Style song? Holy cow did people get into that song - there was even the two guys doing the elevator scene pose. There was the traditional Rasputin dance, as well as the Da Da Slide - both always fun.
And the raffles - I won two! One basket with a mug, some chocolates and a copy of The Mammoth Book of Steampunk:
And then I won one of the two Grand Prizes. I saw it on the table and I was like, OMG, that is so ridiculous (ridiculously awesome!) - my husband would kill me if I brought that home.
Now, look at that, and imagine if you will, that puppy is just under SIX FEET LONG! I'm five foot three. The thing is more than half a foot taller than me. Oh man, I got looks on the bus on the way home!
Thanks go out to Diana Ped and the other folks of the Temporal Airship Beagle, who organized the event, and to everyone who donated prizes. Also, compliments to the artisan who made the giant gun. I'll have more pictures of me with it later. I have named it "Ishmael." It's for hunting sky whales.
Needless to say, I will be making every effort to make it to their next event, whenever that is.
