Steamcon 2013

One of our New Year’s resolutions here at Drake & McTrowell is to return to getting our posts out in a timely fashion. It seems we’ve been running a little behind in the last few months. What better way to get back on track than to get out our bloop on Steamcon V (which was actually two months ago)?

Although the theme was “Around the World,” I detected a note of
Bavarian Airship Regatta. There were Russians. We still miss the brave Ivan Krasnayarubashka.

I thought I spotted our villainess in the crowd.

Of course, we had to have McTrowell saving Drake from certain death at the hands of the pirate queen.

Of course, it all had a happening ending.

In other news, Baron Von Fogel of the
League of S.T.E.A.M. was there. Is it just us, or is everyone dying for them to start Season Three?

The masquerade had many treats to offer. I particularly liked this one.

But I think these two were king and queen of the steam geek prom.

And you know the comic-reading, Comic-Con-going, steampunk adventuress in me just could not resist these three.

Final note of happy news: apparently there’s going to be a Steamcon VI! There was some question about this at the end of Steamcon V, but I found their website as I was preparing this bloop. Nobody tell Drake that I’m going to volunteer us to do “Drake & McTrowell’s Hot Potato School of Writing. ©”
