Old Tucson’s Steampunk Con

For three days out of the year, people from all over the world flock to Old Tucson to dress up and celebrate the United States largest steam punk convention. Landlocked scuba divers and makeshift sniper-wielding cowboys crossed paths without blinking an eye at each other.  The theme for 2014 was land vs. sea. Although no blows were exchanged, verbal confrontations freckled the dusty sets. The rhetoric used however was of a different nature — a polite one.
