The Difference Engine Convention Review by Donna the Bard

The Difference Engine Steampunk Convention rang in the New Year with 3 days of fun. A steady stream of entertaining performances occupied the stage in 30 minute increments all day long while enlightening panels and presentations addressed issues of interest. I enjoyed the corset class hosted by the ladies of Airship Isabella, and being a quilter, I had to see the Victorian Crazy quilt presentation by Melia Newman. I enjoyed meeting author Bev Hale and the waltz class prepared folks for an enjoyable evening at the New Year’s Eve ball, the highlight of the event.

As always, “Cut, Thrust and Run” kept you alert and laughing with their innovative improvisation and exceptional swordplay while the Tribal dancing of Heidi Wunder bewitched the audience into spellbound fascination. Professor Ewell Tar sold Princess Feather Flower’s Magical Elixir in a hilarious Wild West Medicine and Magic show. Sarasvati Bodhisattva played the sitar beautifully and added some drumming to my show as well- I really enjoyed getting to know her.

Though the audiences were small, energy was high and attendees seemed to have a good time. Many turned up in exquisite costumes and Peter Pixie did a wonderful job of making everyone feel welcome as he announced and introduced performers.
I hope everyone who came to my show had a good time. I enjoyed teaching people to play the bodhran and leading the sing a longs. Wishing you a happy new year and Auld Lang Syne.

I didn't know you were a Portlander! 

Though born in DC and living on the VA side of the Potomac now, I spent at least a good half of my life, and most of them quite blissful, in the Willamette Valley.  I consider myself a Eugene Expatriate, though.

I have a number of very good friends in Portland to this day, and visit every other year or so...

I've been moving about a bit while on BG. I used to live in San Francisco (was in Washington before that) but have been living here for the last 3 years.

I seem to live in some kind of alternate reality not of this planet, but I sometimes come to Earth in West Kelowna, B.C. - and sometimes in La Manzanilla (not to be confused with Manzanillo, about 2 hours away), Jalisco, Mexico.

Springfield Mass, That's on the Connecticut boarder. Still, that can't be more than a few hours away, new England is pretty much within a stones throw of everyone else more or less.

Very true! Samara is familiar with the area more than myself. She says its about 2 hours from our current location. Perhaps we can get a group meet going. Are you aware of any places in between that would suit for a group meet?

Off the top of my head no, but I'd think there are plenty of parks for a nice steampunk picnic gathering in the warmer weather. Let me do some poking around and see what I can find! Smiley

There's also a nice steampunk showing at Connecticon in Hartford in July. Its a multi-genre con, but there's been more and more in the steampunk panels and events every year
