Last night was the monthly meeting of the town Steampunk Association, of which I am a founder member despite not really having much of the clobber because money. And lack of making things abilities.
The group has been going strong for just over a year now, being recognised as a strong and creative unit on the (yikes) "scene" and our social events are always well attended. Last night, visitors from the Lincoln group, the spiritual home of Steampunk, came over and told us of Parasol Duelling, and other esoteric things. And Mr Frisby told us of the joys of bone playing.
I so need a pair of goggles to put round my hat!

Some eccentric and charismatic people. I'll be looking out for a runner in a pith helmet and aviator goggles.ReplyDelete
Well Si, I don't know what steam punk is, but if its 'home' is Lincoln then the city has certainly changed a lot since i lived there!ReplyDelete
It's great to have an interest where you can escape the 'real' world for a while.ReplyDelete
That looks fun! Enjoy yourselves!ReplyDelete
It's a very friendly scene, and unusually for a sub culture, not really a young kids thing.ReplyDelete
Ah this is so, so cool! I love steampunk - creative and cool! Glad you had a good time. - TashaReplyDelete
