We went to MCM Comic Con today. It’s quite a long drive from Hull to Birmingham, but it’s worth if for the stuff on sale and particularly the people in costumes. Last time I went I resolved to try to attend this year in some form of Steampunk costume.
Of course I didn’t get around to it. But this year I thought I’d at least make a start. So, I’ve bought a Steampunk hat. It’s rather big - but I’m a big person. I’ve gone onto Ali Express and bought a flexible pcb covered in pixels. I’m starting at the top of the costume, the next step is to go through my collection of suits, coats and waistcoats. Then we start on the accessories.
This is going to be fun. And I’ve already got some goggles.
