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.
