While this is not a "steampunk" event, I would like to invite everyone to join my wife and I at the Stanley Ranch in Garden grove on October 18th and 19th. There will be a civil war encampment and we will be doing live demonstrations of wet-plate photography (ambrotype/tintype see my photos for examples). Come dressed up and you might get your image struck. This is the real deal not some cheesy instagram filter!

I'm gonna be at Whimsic Alley this weekend for a free craft faire!  Stop by and say hi.  It's not necessarily "steampunk", but it will encompass all genres and fandoms, and I'm sure there's something there you might like.  ;)

Attention anyone who wants a FREE photo shoot of your costume. My husband is offering free photo shoots to anyone willing to go to his Facebook page supahrob photography and shares his free photo post and likes his page. The shoots will be done in riverside area. There is no drawing if you help spread the news you get one free. Thanks for your time.

Hey SoCal SP's... don't forget Old Fort MacArthur Days this coming weekend. Check the Events Page. It is happening in San Pedro, CA. Saturday and Sunday. See everything military from the Romans to the present. LOTS of cannon demos! Who doesn't like things that go BOOM? I'll be there Sunday. See you.
