A big event to celebrate everything steampunk! AetherCon is one of the largest steampunk events in New Zealand, and is closely associated with Steampunk New Zealand (www.steampunknz.co.nz).
AetherCon consists of stalls, displays, vendors, and performances from around New Zealand, each contributing their own specialty or interest; such as:
- On display or for sale: Steampunk couture, jewellery, hats, gadgets, clockworks, curiosities, props, music, books, etc.
- A steampunk parade and fashion contest, in co-ordination with Lady Helen Steampunk and Steampunk New Zealand. This is the Auckland heat of the national contest, culminating in Oamaru.
- Steampunk celebrities and honoured guests.
- And don’t forget our Silver Circle performers! We’ll be running plenty of acts alongside others.
Location: Ellerslie Event Centre, 80 Ascot Avenue, Auckland.
Theme: Sailing; By Sea and By Air.
When: Saturday, 2014 July 26th. The convention runs from 10am to 6pm and the ball runs from 8pm to midnight.
