Good day to all,
Unfortunately I am away from our home base of Boston. I have ventured to the Carribbean for modifications to my airship. I barely made it past the pirates! I encourage you all to convene in my absence should it strike your fancy. Please update me on any great activities you may engage in, as I don't want to miss out on any details. Cheers!

What is your favorite thing about the Victorian Era? and What is it?

Started by Dister. Last reply by Rey Otis Nov 10, 2011. 9 Replies

Queen Victoria succeeded to the throne in 1837 and died in 1901, so the period 1840–1900 is often regarded as the Victorian era. Eric Hobsbawm refers to 1789–1914 as the 'long' nineteenth century.The…Continue

should FIT a 5'7", not "be". obviously.

Comment by Professor Argon Bats on February 12, 2012 at 4:53pm

I'm also letting go of this thing (click to enlarge)... Make an offer, I'll be very amenable to "penniless student budgets" if it fits and you care to pick it up and give it a good home. It started life as a costume in a fancy theater in Copenhagen, got modified from its A-shape to something more fitted and worn by yours truly at some rather awesome goth parties in the 1990s to very early 2000s, and has now been awaiting another phase in its "life" for several years. Let's face it: I don't go to goth parties anymore. Oh wait, I live outside Boston... what goth parties... maybe that's why! [exit cynical mode]. Should be a 5'7 tall person, waist about 24"-26", bust about 37-38", hips flexible but at least 36". Huge train. Collar can stand up or lay down. It has been "distressed" with dark shadows at the bottom and on the train as part of its theatrical career, as you can see from the shots. It's heavy (fabrics are cut velvet, probably intended for home decor).

Because we are moving I am clearing out some old clothes I haven't been wearing lately. It's goth, not much really steampunk, but there's a white cotton skirt with lace and a Tibetan silk shirt with brass buttons (worn once?), in ivory/cream that could work quite well in a pirate style for example. Most of it has been in a box for a year and a half and could need to refreshed with a wash and is wrinkled from storage, but it's otherwise clean. There is some carefully "damaged" graveyard goth items it took years to get this shredded, be a shame to throw it away ;-) And some hardly ever worn items too (such as a black velvet dress with mandarin type collar and frog closure)  Also a men's Danish navy (army) shirt, blue with shoulder straps. I *may* thrown in a green army jacket as well (not too worn, the one from my punkish years was falling apart but alas it was discarded in an earlier move).

Size small-medium. If anyone, or a goth friend of yours, is interested, it's free, you just need to pick it up in Watertown MA.

I think I'll make it to the Salem Invasion on Saturday... or

of course there is also the Steampunk Picnic in Plymouth... o what to do?

I'll be the guy looking like a lost Geezer.

I will be vending at the steampunk invasion, under the business name misty pendragon creations. I hope to see people there! I am going to be selling chainmaile and beaded jewelry.
Comment by Laurie Ann on September 5, 2011 at 8:26pm
Anyone attending the Invasion of Salem this Saturday? Hope to meet some of you there. I'm very excited to have an event so close to home, I work just down the street from Pickering Wharf. Sadly, I had to work and missed last year's Invasion. This year I wizened up and took vacation time! .

Sire Grimm, you'll understand I can not reveal any details about The Plan and any associates I may or may not have. That said, Doctor Steel is an esteemed colleague, of course.
Comment by Ryan Grimm on August 17, 2011 at 6:50am
World Domination?  Perhaps you know of Doctor Steel, Future World Emperor?

Yes, it's a dating page....but funny!
Comment by Professor Argon Bats on August 16, 2011 at 10:18pm
Typical. I have a plan for world domination due for September 15, so I may be just a tad busy around the picnic. Maybe I can take just a few hours for fun... Ah, but mad science is an exacting master!
Comment by Ryan Grimm on August 16, 2011 at 4:40am
Dear Dr. and Mrs. Teal, we also look forward to your acquaintance.  We are hoping for the best, at all times.
