This weekend there will be a “Steampunk in the Catskills” event on June 5-7 at the Blackthorne Resort. I will be a vendor there on Saturday selling my handmade steampunk style items of jewelry and magnets. (I will have a verity of other styles as well.) It sounds like it will be an exciting event with a High Tea and a Crocquet game on the lawn. Also a haunted house and hot air balloon rides. There will be live entertainment by Frenchy and the Punk, Prof Mark Donnelly, Jeff Mach and Nicole Oliva. There will also be bird watching hikes and horse drawn carriages on the roadway of the resort.
Steampunk is a style of Victorian 1800s meets the mechanical age, where gentlemen wore top hats, mustaches and driving goggles, and women wore corsets, carried parasols and rallied as suffragettes.
Mechanical gears mixed with technology combined with science fiction and fantasy, sometimes on a dark side of the imagination is where you will find Steampunk.
A few weeks ago (Sept 4-7) I was a vendor at the Supernatural Convention in Whippany New Jersey. This television show on the CW has been a favorite with my family since 2005 when it premiered on Sept 13th. My daughter, Holly and I sold my handmade pins and magnets from all Sci-Fi genre including Supernatural, Dr. Who, Firefly as well as Sherlock, steampunk, Harry Potter and (yes) My Little Ponies. It was a prosperous weekend as well as fun and entertaining. Met lots of interesting fans of the show and got to go to a few of the panels hosted by the stars of the show. We had a fabulous time the karaoke night and enjoyed the Cabaret show. It was a rewarding experience and we hope to do it again.

Supernatural pins & magnets
For those of you who did not see my Facebook & Twitter posts last month, I’ve signed on to be a vendor at the Supernatural Convention in Whippany, NJ this year (Sept 5-7) hosted by Creation Entertainment! I’ve been busting my butt the past few weeks making some fun Supernatural themed pins and magnets just for this event. I have also had the extremely hard task of re-watching episodes to get ideas. (I know, such a tough job!) I have about one month left to get everything finished, but am pretty much ahead of schedule. On top of those pins, I will also be bringing a selection of my other pins as seen in my ETSY SHOP. So there will be lots to choose from. I’m very excited about this event because not only am I huge fan of the show, but this will be my first really big event. If all goes well, I may have to pack my schedule next year! (Steampunk World’s Fair, here I come! LOL 😉 )
So Supernatural Fans!! What kind of Supernatural Fan-Made pins would you like to see?
