The Great New England Steampunk Exhibition
September 16 – 18, 2011
Courtyard Marriott / Central MA Expo Center
TLA Productions was formed in 2010 to bring a major Steampunk Convention to New England. According to their Facebook page: ”Several of us had been complaining that there was no major Steampunk convention in New England. In particular, a couple of us wanted Abney Park to come to Boston, or at least closer to us than New York City. As you might expect, someone eventually said, “Why don’t you stop complaining and do it yourself.” So one of us thought about it for a few seconds and then said, “Why not?” The rest, as they say, is history.”

They create outfits from gorgeous Bridal gowns to fancy everyday wear. We love Neo-Victorian, Lolita and Gothic. They have their own Etsy store and can also be found on Facebook.

While at TempleCon 2010, I picked up a pirate hat at Cloak & Dagger Creations. It will serve nicely as my Gun Mage hat when I return next year. If you’re interested in this hat, or other cosplay costumes, check out Elope and Cloak & Dagger Creations. By the way, the folks at Cloak & Dagger were very helpful and friendly. Check them out.
During TempleCon 2010, we visited a lot of the vendors.
One of our favorites was Cloak & Dagger Creations. My wife bought a full Steampunk-ish outfit and I bought a pirate hat and goggles. The folks from Cloak & Daggers were very nice and willing to help us find exactly what we wanted to buy. If you’re looking for a selection of unique and special items, check them out.
