April 27 – 29, 2012

Symposium 2012 PinApril 27th, Twenty-Twelve, marked the inaugural year for Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana’s only Steampunk convention, the first ever Steampunk Empire Symposium, and it drew people from all over the country and beyond.

The Wednesday before the convention, local newspaper Citybeat did a great cover story article on Steampunk in Cincinnati and the Symposium and then the following Wednesday Metromix, another newspaper, published great pictures from Saturday night at the event.

Over the Steampunk Empire site, Lady Beatrix Kittywick McCormick, has done a wonderful job of getting people to share their pictures of the 2012 Symposium, and on Flickr many people have posted great shots of the weekend. But a special thanks to Lady Eleanor Gentry Vesper, of the League of Cincinnati Steampunks, for filming and editing this delightful video . . .
