February Tea: Art of Silent Communication

Date: February 11
Location: Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics Boardroom
The parking lot is located at NE 10th and Stiles, 1 block west of Lincoln, in the Shedrick Library building – there will be signs.
Time: 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

February’s topic is demonstrating the Victorian “secret” social codes (fans, handkerchiefs, parasols, gloves, flowers) and demonstrating how they are the base for modern underwater communications and military communications, then discussing how they are used in art, and how they could be used in the future of art, science, and gaming.


We have a few free spaces left for Airships and other steampunk clubs and groups to use to advertise their group.  The space is approximately 3′x3′ (large enough for a card table – the group provides the table, but we’ll provide chairs), large enough for placing flyers, photos, devices, or other items representing your group.

These spaces are located along the Promenade, a large social area where students and attendees can see and be seen.  The Promenade winds out of the Convention Center and into the Tea Parlour.

You can email octopodiconchair @ or octoairship @ to get an application – it’s first come, first served! – and an agreement so your steampunk group can have a stronger presence at OctopodiCon 2012.

Room Party!

Thanks to a substantial donation, OctopodiCon will have a Room Party at SoonerCon!

We’re very excited about this!

We will also have an ad in the SoonerCon Program Guide.

And we have a Fan Page at Facebook! Go “like” it and keep current on all the things happening as we put together an exciting hands-on steampunk convention!
