Two events in one weekend can be a little taxing, particularly if one of those days is ridiculously hot.
Morris Arboretum is one of our favorite places for a Steampunk event – there are wide open spaces, trees, plants, neat paths to explore, plenty of parking, and all sorts of interesting presentations and performances. This year, though, while the location was great it was really, really hot. Better than raining, we suppose, but still not the best kind of day to spend outdoors in one’s Steampunk finery. How hot was it? Both of use eschewed our normal event attire for basic casual, something we never, ever do.
Despite any negative impact the weather may have had on attendance, it was still, as always, a lovely event.
