The 2012 SteampunkNZ Festival weekend will launch on Friday with the winter masquarade from Smith's Grain Store today at 5.30 pm. This sets off a weekend of Steampunk shenanigans in the piece of living history that is Oamaru on New Zealand's South Island, including:
Neave R. Willoughby and his Magic Lantern takes you through the History of steampunk
Music Extravaganza and Dirigible/Airship Racing
Steampunk NZ Fashion Show
It is all crowned with the Steampunk NZ Gala Ball!
Weta's own Kim and Warren Beaton will be in attendance as they have formed a special bond with the steampunk enthusiasts of Oamaru.http://www.steampunknz.co.nz/
