2011 Worldwide Steampunk Day

July 10, 2011 – Airship Luftsturm, based out of Columbia MO, celebrated the Worldwide Steampunk “strut your stuff” Day by engaging in several festivities to help spread awareness of the genre and purpose of this holiday.

Donning their best steampunk gear (that could be worn on a 100ºF day), the crew set out in the downtown area of Columbia, walking down the streets strutting their stuff. The crew also attended a performance of “The Complete Works of Shakespeare – Abridged” put on by 5th Wall Productions. Thereafter, the crew invaded the local Golden Corral, a buffet style restaurant.

The crew met many friendly members of the public, introducing them to what Steampunk is, and information on the local airship crew.
