Back in time with inventive attitude


Anthony Jon Hicks of Seattle arranges this print of a Cetacean Airship Saturday at his and his wife's handmade jewelry and accessories table at the Time Travelers' Rummage Sale, part of Steampunk University at the All Pilgrims Christian Church on Capitol Hill. Steampunk University classes were held upstairs in the church, teaching things such as intro to Steampunk, leatherworking, and styles of dress and music. Steamcon, the fifth annual fall convention for the retro-futuristic subculture, will be held Oct. 25-27 at the Bellevue Hyatt Regency. There will be two more Time Travelers' Rummage Sales, held at All Pilgrims Christian Church on June 15 and Aug. 17, to stock up before the convention. "We're bringing manners back, we recycle, and we encourage all to dress up," says organizer Diana Vick. "I started the 'anti-pajamafication' league to encourage all to dress up," she says with a laugh.
