Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention's 21 Best Looks

The Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention was a hit, as former movie studio/living history theme park Old Tucson Studios came to life this weekend, full of folks showing off costumes that reimagined the Victorian era. The parameters of the steampunk genre are loosely defined as Victorian science fiction, which in a sense embodies how people like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells imagined the future.

Old Tucson was once again full of outlaws and gunslingers, only this time the weaponry included rayguns and lasers. It was a cold and rainy weekend, but guests still flaunted their creativity with homemade costumes. Check out the best of the best after the jump.
