[College Park, MD - 23 Feb 2013] Clockwork Werewulf Update - Ticket Deadline Extended!

We are down to a week before the Clockwork Werewulf II, our steampunk ball (http://midlantic-steam.livejournal.com/51358.html) so here is an update:
First, we have extended the deadline for buying tickets at the $30 price to this Thursday, the 21st!  Paypal to: ddelaney103@gmail.com
Tickets at the door are $35 (cash only), as available.
Schedule:
The doors will open at 7 and there will be a short lesson in vintage dancing (polkas and waltzes) at 7:30.
At 8 the dancing will start with a Grand March and follow with dancing on and off until 11.
There will be light refreshments and punch.
There will also be a photography booth where you can have "prom photos" of your steamy finery for a fee.
Hopefully there will one or two surprises (of the pleasant variety - most events can't avoid the other type and I suspect we'll have our share as well).
More details as we have them - see you in a week!

Death of Rats

Steampunk Articulated Rat Skeleton (Jenner from Mrs. Frisby & the Rats of NIMH)

Jenner, the steampunk rat ruling over a rodent-scale kingdom of clockwork-toys stolen from humans. Until he tried to upgrade from clockwork to electricity and fried himself.

Jenner 039

Note: I didn't make the flying machine music box toy, I just painted it and stuck some clock bits on.

Collapse )The Slomski Brothers - "Vaudeville like you've never tasted it!"-
If you've ever wondered what Vaudeville tastes like, wonder no more. The Slomski Brothers are coming to town, and they always know what to do. Both Mark Slomski and Phil Slomski started performing at an early age, but it wasn't until Mama Slomski insisted they hit the road with the family luggage, Trunk Slomski, did they realize their dream: to bring laughter and the Slomski name to the entire world. It's not a show you'll want to miss, and it's not one you'll forget anytime soon. 

Mavi - A dark fusion belly dance artist known for her compelling presence, connectivity with her audience, sensual movements, her dark aesthetic, thematic interpretations, and mastery of balancing blades. She has also been known to play with fire.....

Mab - Mab believes that every single person has superpowers. One of Mab’s super powers is the ability to find the shortest lane in at a toll booth. The other is the ability to walk on broken glass and hammer spikes into her face. Mab is a freak. You probably shouldn’t try that at home. Currently, Mab can be found monkeying around with the rest of the Cheeky Monkey Sideshow, which happens to also be DC’s longest running theatrical sideshow.

Helena Coy - Helena Coy brings classic spice to your night with her tassel-twirlin' talents and sensual striptease. Inspired by the burlesque style of the1940s and 50s, Helena Coy invokes the smoldering hot starlets of times past. Don't miss her hike up her skirt, strut her stuff, and take you back to the classic era of burlesque!

See you at The Palace of Wonders!
