What is Rufflecon?
RuffleCon is the first alternative fashion conference in the Northeast USA. Created as a celebration of alternative fashion sub-cultures, Rufflecon is a way to share, learn, and co-mingle between the different styles.
So besides getting to hang out with the Citizens, why should I go?
There will be several alternative fashions seen at this con, most notably steampunk, goth, punk, and a range of Japanese fashions. Although encouraged, you don't have to dress up to attend!
If you're not into fashion, there are several people from the steampunk community that have been invited as guests; Music By Auerlio Voltare, Psyche Corporation, Platform One, Steampunk Fashion by Redfield Designs, and a Meet and Greet/Book signing with GD Falksen.
We hope to see you there!
