It’s been almost a month since Dieselpunk SA had their first ever event - a picnic in the Botanical Gardens! Almost a year on, it’s time for International Dieselpunk Day! Taking place on the 12th of November, IDD this year is a Monday. However, we’ve decided to hold our celebrations on Sunday, the 11th! This shall be the first ever IDD, and Dieselpunk SA’s first appearance since our surprisingly triumphant panel and parade at AVCon!
This is essentially much the same shindig as our first picnic. So for those of you who recall where that was, that’s where we are again this time. For those who’re new, we’re fairly close to the south side of the gardens (closer to North Terrace). I’ll post a map in the comments below and on the Dieselpunk SA pages.
Please bring all the typical picnic things; rug or picnic table and chairs, any food and drinks, and any cutlery and crockery you feel you may require. Bring whatever food you wish (to share or keep for yourself), but era appropriate or inspired foods will be particularly smiled upon (rationing ain’t always so much fun, so don’t feel pressured into using your eggs sparingly).
As for what to wear. Dieselpunk! Vintage (pre-1950s) is also acceptable. And if you can’t come up with anything, come along anyway!
Hope to see you all there, and don’t forget to join the Dieselpunk SA group on Facebook!
