Iron Horse Orange Empire Railway Museum


This past weekend I was a vendor at Iron Horse Steampunk Festival at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris. My husband Daniel and I got there Friday night to set up my area. We also stayed a couple nights and camped out on the museum grounds during the Festival. I have to say it was an amazing experience that I can’t wait to do again next year.

I always love the characters and costumes that people make and come up with for Steampunk. Most people build stories around their costumes and become these characters while others alter other pop culture icons.

It’s a whole Steampunk Family

My lovely Mum dressed up as well for the Event. She even sported one of my gear pins on her shirt that I made. Check out my tutorial on how to make one of these cute accessories.

 

One of the things that I believe sets Iron Horse apart from most of the conventions is their music. Poplock Holmes gathered a wonderful line up for Iron Horse that truly made the festival. There were so many talented musicians at the Festival and I was lucky enough to get one of the best spots near the stage and entertainment. Poplock Holmes, Strange Indeed, Banjo man, Frytown Toughs, Aether Brigade and The Velveteen Band.

Strange Indeed is an original Folk, Jazz, and Bluegrass band from Riverside California.

When their beautiful little girl isn’t taking a nap she’s playing the tambourine with them rocking out.

One of the awesome people I met Demian aka Smiley the Banjo Man. His music is amazing and my husband thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with him.

The night concert was a blast. Everyone has such an amazing talent and unique sound.

Poplock Holmes had an amazing set with catchy beats

The Frytown Toughs were amazing as always and such a blast to listen to.

 

The Velveteen Band delivered an amazing set despite having some technical difficulties.

My husband and I enjoyed a tethered balloon ride from Skyline Balloons. The rides were $15 per person because we were selling at the event were able to buy one and get one free.


We also rode the Steam Engine. I can’t describe how much riding the train is. We don’t go too far on the tracks and the ride is about 15 -20 mins but all the rides in the museum on the trains and trolleys for the day are free. Which is my favorite part, because I was busy vending this year we didn’t really get the time to ride all the trolleys but I have gone in them at the previous Iron Horse Events



  


  

There were also many other activities that I wasn’t able to check out such as the different workshops.

Overall, the museum is a beautiful place for the event. All the volunteers are wonderful they know quite a bit about the trains and trolleys and can answer most of your questions.

Fundraising Event at Creator Space in Temecula

It has been crazy busy in the Lampi house. My Husband Daniel and I went to check out this Biannual Costume and Cosplay Extravaganza at Creator Space in Temecula last Saturday.

I had heard about this event on Facebook from some friends. I figured a free Cosplay event with workshops I couldn’t go wrong. So I got dressed up in some on my basic cosplay gear and Daniel and I headed down to Temecula.

This event was wonderful. It was a small event but the workshops were fun and the vendors were great, although placed in a tight space. Tayliss Forge from Steampunk’d was there. She was selling prints wire elf ears and was a guest speaker. My wonderful Tara from Gear Oils was there as well.

All workshops were free however, there was a suggested fee and all proceeds went to supples to continue this great workshop.

My husband and I did the wands. It was such a blast. I can only hope that once I get the tools I can make more myself.  


I got daring and did the curly design. Daniel’s was the one on the right with the beautiful handle.

The Creator Space was created because there has been a decline of shop class in high school. The Creator Space is a non-profit corporation and is place where kids and adults can learn and teach classes on costume ideas, wood shop, and soldering. The Creator Space is open Monday-Friday  10am-8pm and Saturday  10am-6pm. These events are held twice a year to help raise money to continue this dream of having a space where kids and adults can use a workspace learn new techniques and let their creativity flow. If you are in the area I recommend you check this place out.
