Atlanta Steampunk Expo 2017

Envisioned by convention expert and steampunk costumer, Bill Harrison, the Atlanta Steampunk Expo (ASE) held its initial convention in November 2017.  Run by a friendly, experienced staff, the convention wisely started small and was effectively a Saturday-Sunday convention that included a “soft opening” on Friday night.  Although it started small, ASE still attracted top-notch talent in costumers, guests, and vendors.  Attendees enthusiastically welcomed the new convention and await its return.

Group photoshoots run by fans have become a staple at conventions giving cosplayers larger forums for expressing themselves.  At Dragon Con 2017, a group of Star Wars fans arranged a group photoshoot as a means pay tribute to the late Carrie Fisher – allowing them to both grieve together and celebrate the positive impact the actress made upon their lives.
