Salt City Steamfest Pre-Registration

Every so often I feature a convention on my blog. You might see this particular convention pop up time and time again. The reason? I am helping to run it as the Volunteer coordinator and I know all the fun goody things that will be happening. This convention is going to be a real hit so I have to share it!

Calling all Steampunks! The Salt City Steamfest is Utah's premier steampunk convention. The Steamfest started last year in the summer in Salt Lake City, Utah. We expected 400, maybe 500 hundred attendees would show up for this first year convention. There were 1275 attendees and the place was packed and the steampunk crowd was amazing!

This year's Steamfest will be held at the Davis Convention Center in Layton, Utah. Events such as the Nerf Battle and the Formal Ball will be returning. Guests like "The Uprising of The Gin Rebellion," "Unwoman," and more are coming to the Oasis in the Utah Desert to perform and interact. The "Nerf Battle" will be returning along with a grand "Steampunk Ball." An "Urchin's Corner" for kids has fun activities for all ages. The Festival of Fashion Show, the Salty Dog Writing Challenge, and the Art Show are looking for entries as well.

Pre-registration is open now and there are some nice perks to getting your pass to the convention! You can have the whole weekend in the for $25.00 ($5.00 for kids!) or even $100 for a group of five. The Steamfest is also looking for Artist Alley Artists and Panelists. Please follow the links below to register and learn more.

How to Make Auron's Blade - The Cosplay Armory

Auron's Katana Build by James

A note before I start. I will be mentioning the use of several machines that I have the luxury of having in my shop that I am well aware not everyone has. This project is definitely easier with them than without but everything I describe can be done without them or with simpler tools. I will also include steps that I do that are not necessary in parenthesis()

I was commissioned to build the Auron Katana by Lolita Zombie Cosplay and knew immediately that I wanted it to be light, yet durable. The first step to building any prop is figuring out what you’re going to make it out of. A lot of prop makers use light woods like poplar and MDF and while I have used some wood I decided it would be my first sword that I built e…

This episode will be the first in a series. The series will start in a few weeks as we get through some old episodes, but we wanted to get some hype going and get questions brewing about cosplay contests.
