Ancient Egypt, by Way of San Diego
More imaginative costumes as the Gaslight Steampunk Expo adopts an Ancient Egypt theme
Saturday, October 5, 2019
Editor’s note: Steampunk culture met Ancient Egypt as the Gaslight Steampunk Expo took place Sept. 27-29 in San Diego. The theme was reflected in many ways: Panel discussions, an artifact room, a full-size replica of the Stargate from the movie and TV series. But most of all, it was seen in the attendees whose costumes melded Egyptian styles and steampunk.
