Anyone who wants to organize anything should give it a try.
For the August 13th meeting, I'd like some basics in soldering brass and mixed metals (and compare/contrast soldering to welding), beginning leather working -- source materials, basic tools, etc., and prop making. I have 2 Nerf Mavericks to customize, and I've got ideas and doodads, but I would like to see other examples to get more ideas to steal, er, take license with. I'll try to bring some snacks.
Your humble servant,
Will anyone be making the trek to Clockwork Con in Austin?
My sister and I will be making the journey to the Clockwork Con. See you there?
I'll be there! Got confirmation earlier this week, I'll be presenting a panel, "Put Some Near East In Your Step" - just waiting on the schedule to find out day/time :-)
Gail Carriger, author of the Parasol Protectorate, will be in Houston on March 2, at 6:30 p.m at the Murder by the Book store. Who would be up for a get together & maybe a nosh? Maybe at Katz's Deli?
Sounds like fun! I should be game.
Lone Star Flight Museum sounds like a good place, it is indoors and offers photo ops. Another "cool" weather place might be the Battleship Texas. Either one seems to be just waiting to be invaded. It would be awesome to see a costumed crowd of about twenty plus! I am looking forward to more comments on this subject.
Both of those sound like amazing photo ops!
I made an event page for the upcoming Twisted Gears event on here. Check it out!

Deleted most of the replies from 2011.
Just a reminder that Gail Carriger, author of the Parasol Protectorate series, will be in Houston on 3/2, 6:30 p.m., at Murder by the Book. Anyone else thinking they'll be attending?
