AnachroCon

Alternate history is a genre of fiction, and often, science-fiction, that asks, “What if?” What if the allies had lost World War II? What if the computer had been developed in the 1800s? How would our world be different?

Every year in Atlanta, fans of history and alternate history come together at AnachroCon. Panel discussions range from actual historical debate to speculation on what might have been. Some of the most popular panels offer how-to demonstrations for costume and prop construction. There are costumes everywhere at AnachroCon, most of them meant to represent the fanciful timelines of alternate history.

One of the most popular subgenres at AnachroCon is Steampunk, described by some as “Victorian science-fiction gone awry.” Steampunk costumes are often characterized by the use of brass, gears, goggles, and other materials that signify the height of technology in a mythical Victorian age.

Look for the next AnachroCon in late February.
