Welcome to Reno’s Biggest Little Steampunk Expo, a first event of the season to whet the appetite for the steamy year to come! Just check out the schedule of events:

11 am: Opening of the Expo: Free admission to a day of Steampunk fun! On your way in, be sure to pick up a complimentary raffle ticket for fabulous prizes, and take the opportunity to improve your chances by purchasing a few more throughout the day. Stroll through the vendors (spaces still available, contact for details) and see what our fabulous Northern Nevada community has to offer!

11:30 am – 12:30 pm: Steampunk Undress - $5. Willing to drop a fin and to see a lovely lady take off her clothes? Now that we have your attention, join Vivian Dare for a step by step look at steampunk costuming as she removes and talks about each piece of her wardrobe and how to work similar pieces into your future costume. (Rated PG for possible profanity and mild violence while dealing with corset lacings).

12:45 pm: SOLD OUT Steam Tea - $15. A limited number of people will be able to enjoy tea and tasties provided by Edible Alchemy (creator of the fabulous cookies at September’s Steampunk Ball) and friends! Enjoy your tea in the best (and only!) seats for the fashion show.

1:00 pm: Steampunk Fashion Show. We welcome all who’d like to show their fabulous creations! Please contact if you’d like to participate.

2:30 -3:30 pm: Thrift Your Steam - $5. Spend a little to learn a lot about spending a little to have a lot! Costuming expert, Lauren Elizabeth talks about what to look for at thrift stores to create a fabulous costume for less. She will also include some simple techniques to improve those finds that are too marvelous to say no to even if they may not fit just right.

4:00 pm: Raffle Drawing. While your presence won’t be necessary to win, isn’t it more fun to be there to pick up your prize?

5:00 pm: Close of the event. Be sure you get to the vendors before they have to pack up to go!
