Thank you for registering for the 2016 Ken®vention!
Get ready for a steampunk filled weekend of fun, friendship,
dolls and charity as the members of the He’s A Doll! Club are
honored to present the
Carson’s Wild Wild West!
It’s the late 1800’s, we have come out of the American Civil
War, we are going through an industrial revolution, the
Victorian era is in full swing and the west is still wild.
Enter a world of science fiction and fantasy set in the
American "Wild West"
19th-century Victorian era inspired by Steam powered machinery,
creativity and imagination. Envision what life would have been
like if the modern technologies of our century had been achieved
by the people of the 19th century all employing steam
power. The Steampunk genre encompasses not only modern
utilitarian objects, but also a unique personal style. The
clothes are not strictly Western or Victorian, but include
technological gadgets and gears or hints of a more advanced and
adventurous life than a typical old West or Victorian citizen
Join us for a Western Steampunk convention adventure of a
lifetime. Full of fun and excitement, gadgets and gizmos
and (of course) a souvenir Ken® Doll representing our theme to
add to your collection.
