Flagstaff Steam and WildWestCon

Hi! I'm new here, but not exactly new to steampunk. I've been interested in the fandom for about 3 years now however I've been rather intimidated to try it out till recently. I went to Dragoncon 2 years ago with my husband and was simply astonished by all the Steampunk variety and fanfaire and now I hear this past year it was even bigger. We recently moved to Flagstaff, AZ for me to attend my PhD program, and together with my roommate have taken on some projects including costumes for this amazingly awesome convention happening in Tuscon in early March:

I was wondering who else on here is planning on going?
Anyway I also join steamfashion where I plan on posting my costume idea. I want to go as a sort of Steampunk Marie Curie only instead of dying of cancer at 32 because of her experiments with radioactivity, she glows all radioactive. Anyway glad to be here and looking forward to going to the con and possibly meeting some more steam enthusiasts who might be up for a costuming day or two here in Flag

PS one of my other favorite fandoms Avatar the Last Airbender is going Steampunk in 2011 for the next installment of the legend of Korra. I can't wait!

Welcome. I hope to get to wildwildwestcon next year.
There's a little bit of Steam around Prescott, but I've mostly found historical Old West here.
Don't know what's on in Flag, but with the Uni there must be some Steam up there.
