What is ÆtherFest?


ÆtherFest is Texas’ first and (currently) only three-day steampunk convention and festival! It’s full of all the panels, workshops, musical events, vendors and wonderful people from the Steampunk community you expect to find at any such convention in an exceedingly historic and immersive hotel environment with a light theme tying it all together.

My dear Baron! Congratulations on pulling this off! The St. Anthony Hotel! What an elegant place to have a steamfest. I can hardly believe it! I will do my best to arrange my affairs in order to attend. Viva Tejas!

Announcement: A whole huge slew of guests announced!

Hello my fellow Brass Gogglelians!

Over here deep in the heart of Texas, we're hard at work to turn AetherFest into the best convention it can possibly be! We've announced a whole bunch of guests today, so go take a look and why don't you buy your ticket and book your room now while they're still at their lowest possible prices?  Grin

WOW, I had no idea there were this many steampunk entusiasts in Texas/San Antonio!

I've been interested in steampunk for a while now, but I've just recently decided that I would like to actually participate in the madness. I would love to attend this in order to get some inspiration, but as I said, I'm quite new to steampunk, and as such, I have no costume. And from what I understand from the website, I will be looked down upon as a human being for not dressing up. So maybe I'll go out and buy a monocle and a tophat, maybe a fake mustache too...

Anyways, I just wanted to say greetings to you fellows, and if I can cobble together an acceptable outfit in the next two months, I shall see you at ÆtherFest!

Oh, we were just joking with that! We encourage you to dress up, but Steampunk is much more than just an outfit, y'know? Feel free to come as you are!

Good news! We've extended our pre-registration for ÆtherFest until April 15 at our $35 rate, since we are a convention that revolves around its fans and we know times can be a little tough. We've also made some pass price changes and announced the cost of one-day passes! Check it out at the site!

We'll also be at All-Con selling tickets and passing out flyers! Look for us there!

So, who all from Brass Goggles is attending? Perhaps a meet-up is in order?

I have a "partial conflict" since I'll be invited to Austin's release of the Steampunk Bible on May 1st!!   I'm obliged to be there on account that I have been included in the Steampunk Bible's, Master Index!!!

http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,21190.msg657146.html#msg657146

However, I would like so see if I could go to San Antonio on the 29th or the 30th, but I would need a ride as my old horse is not up to the task!  Any one charitable soul planning to go and return in one day who might be willing to carry my old bones to San Antonio?  Grin

I'll try my best to attend (hopefully in at least some sort of appropriate attire). What time do the shenanigans start on Friday?

However, even before the opening ceremonies we'll all be socializing and getting ready, so come early and say hello!

"I just don't understand . . . this blasted lion compass is going crazy!
And, by the way, old man, you must do some thing about your breath!"

Thank you for posting this one, too.  (As for the breath issue: the lion or me?)

The story line I was proposing in this caption involved two rather bumbling lion hunters who do not realize that their prey is behind them. The chap holding the "lion compass" is remarking mistakenly about his chum's breath, but is about to meet the source of the bad smell.

Good one!  I figured that was where you were going, tried to add a bit of warped humor from this end.
