Where Did Off the Fang Go??

For a few weeks, I was doing really well in compiling an Off the Fang and poll for you all, and I want to apologize for my slacking. I’ve been hit – hard – by the Bundy Curse and am still trying to crawl out from under the airplane that crash landed in my life.

In lieu of an actual column this week, I’m pimping a convention happening next month. The official blurb is:
Emerald City Steampunk Expo is a three-day celebration of the Steampunk Culture. There will be three days of concerts, gaming, demonstrations, comedy, oddities, cosplay, LARPing, stage shows and more. Emerald City was the Midwest’s first major Steampunk event and the largest steampunk event in Kansas.

Event dates are November 2 – 4, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Wichita. Special guests are Abney Park, Unwoman, Roscoe and Rose Red’s Theatre Bizarre, the Wichita Burlesque troupe, Crazy Boy Coy, Flamgra’in Oolos, The Misfit Toyz, Philippa Ballantine, Tee Morris, The D-20 Girls, and Blackhearts Victorian Duels.

And, to add to the awesomeness, I helped plan the event. : ) (On the hotel side, of course, lol.)

  1. Man oh man that looks like it would be a fun time! Real fun time!

  2. Sorry that life has been treating you so bad-
    on the bright side- you have taught me two new things today-
    the meaning of the Bundy Curse and LARPing!

  3. I wish I was closer. We have a good con here held at Old Tucson and one of the hotels but, it is only held every two years and this is an off year.

  4. I know that feeling of the Bundy Curse. hope all works out well for you! prayers and good juju sent your way!

  5. Ah, the Bundy Curse. Or as I have called it in my life a Murphy’s Universe Smack. It’s a mixture of getting smacked by the universe with a constant stream of Murphy’s Law embedded in it. Which now that I know what it is, is basically the Bundy Curse. Nice to have a new name for it, because mine was getting a little lengthy.

    But on the plus side Steampunk Expo! Wish I could get to Wichita because so very cool.

    Hope you clear out the plane debris soon. I know it sucks when something rears its unwanted ugly head. So you’re due some slacking. 🙂 Maybe once you’re done, you’ll find a Matthew Fox or a Josh Holloway under the wreckage! Ooh and one of them has a briefcase full or money! (Hey, it could happen!)

  6. I’m sorry things aren’t going so good right now. I can relate a little. Hope things look up soon! And hey, a convention, pretty sweet! I’m jealous!

  7. Best wishes to you in things getting better! What an awesome event! If I could travel, I would be there! We don’t have much here in MS for steam punk events.

  8. I was hoping things were getting better, would love to do an event sometime

  9. Thanks for the update! I’ll be waiting for new posts.

  10. Life happens. Don’t worry.

  11. Sorry for your problems! But you kno, s*it happens! But on the flip side, I’m so excited about the convention! Woohoo!!!! I’m so glad I live near the “Somewhere over the rainbow ” state. I’m so looking forward to being there.

  12. Wow! That sounds like a lot of fun!!

  13. This looks like an awesome event…wish I could be there!
    Hope things perk up for you!

  14. That sounds like an incredible event. Really wish I lived closer or that we had similiar events in my area.
