PHOTOS: Into the World of Steampunk

Steampunk and “Alice in Wonderland” took over the Wilbur D. May Center this past weekend. High Desert Steam brought the two together for the Winter Wonderland Expo and Ball.   

Activities at the event included live stage performances, vendor booths with steampunk attire and literature for sale, workshops, panels, and dancing. Custom cocktails were offered by High Desert Botanicals and The Glass Die hosted a board game room.

Attendees had the opportunity to take selfies with those in costume and talk about the sci-fi world of steampunk.

  1. Lost in the Winter Wonderland.
    Navigating through the looking glass was an exciting adventure as the white rabbit and Alice would guide you through adventure and fantasy. The WINTER Ball was mesmerizing and wonders, only out done by the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

    Reno was exhumed by the Steampunk world of many exciting characters. Pirates, Cheshire Cats, Proper gentlemen and even Alice herself. Most exciting was an appearance by the book herself, Alice in Wonderland. From the warmth and friendliness of the locals to the extraordinary knowledge of the vendors, the Steampunk’s Alice in Wonderland will keep the High Desert Steamers in a bliss until the next event.
