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.

You can explore the highlights in the gallery below. Thanks to Clara Blackheart and Jerry Abuan for allowing use of their photos.
