About the 42nd:

The 42nd was founded in January of 2011 with the goal of providing a common forum for Steampunks in and around the Upper Texas Coast.  The 42nd itself does not do business as an entity and is kept as a anarchy (two reasons for this are to avoid liability and discourage internal politics).  It depends upon individuals and smaller groups to organize and host events.  Please feel free to click the JOIN button above.  A D Cruize tries to give one free 42nd ASB patch to each member as he meets them (if you don't have one, look him up at an event and let him know).

Beware. It isn't "King Midas' Ball" any more. It is now "TRF After Dark". My understanding is that it is a different experience. Don't go there expecting anything similar to last year.

Be sure to hunt down Jackeem, The King's Magician

Hubby and I are planning on going to the Texas Renaissance Festival's King Midas Masquerade Ball again. We had such fun and would like to know if any Steampunkers would like to attend on a Saturday together. I would love to be able to practice the dances that were taught at a meeting at the Battle of Texas War Ship at Sajacento River. Please post a good Saturday Oct 10 - Nov 21

COSTUMING ALERT!! Greetings to all members of 42nd Airship. Thank you for allowing me to join your ranks.I am a long-time assemblage artist/teacher and new steampunk enthusiast. I want to share information about a terrific costuming source. I recently obtained my red brocade vest at Super Savings Thrift Shop for $1.99 .(Fondren just North of Bellaire, turn in just before the Whataburger.) They are moving soon and for the next week ALL clothing is $1.99 or less.The store is HUGE, as an example they have about 100 vests to chose from rather than the 3 or 4 found in most thrift shops. One caveat... dress lightly. No A/C, just fans. Happy hunting!

Our monthly Houston meetings are in flux, right now. I'll try to keep this updated a little better. We are looking at other places to have it, besides Denny's.

Comment by A D Cruize on July 24, 2015 at 5:55pm

Mr. Kazmertine, Drew has it right.  There are no ranks here - only duties . . .

Comment by Drew Heyen on June 10, 2015 at 4:03am

Not sure if the title is right, but I am pretty sure the name you are looking for is A D Cruize.

Who is the Battalion Commander of the 42nd AB?

Comment by Drew Heyen on January 1, 2015 at 9:55am
First SteamPunk gathering of the year, and a return from the end of year hiatus that will forever plague me. I am going to tentatively make this gathering a Third Friday gathering, for the foreseeable future. I will maintain the posts, so keep an eye on the invitations and the calendar, but unless something pretty specific is going on, I plan to do this every third Friday.

As always, costuming allowed, but not at all required. Please leave weapons (real and prop) at home.
