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!

P.S: Feel free to make any topics suggestions.

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

SO....the New Year is in full swing, and it's time to place a notice about the 6th Annual New England Steampunk Picnic!
THE PLACE:
Set in the beautiful confines of Capron Zoo & Park in Attleboro MA, the 33 acres of shaded land has a Zoo, a bandstand, a walk with what appears to be a set of Rose Arbors, and a relatively convenient set of roads to get there.

THE DATE:
Saturday, September 14th, 2013

THE TIME:
From 1 PM to 5:30 PM (or essentially when you get there!)

Additional information for the Event may be found HERE:
http://www.thesteampunkempire.com/events/6th-annual-new-england-ste...

We hope to see you there!

The expedition to Cider Day was a success, to say the least.  Tasted 6 or 7 home-made ciders and ice wines at the morning Workshop, and on the way into the Workshop was 'ambushed' by no less than three sets of folks giving away samples....walking was not a problem, as I paced myself.
On the way out of the Workshop, the usual 'Here, taste this' ambushes on the way to the parking areas...another 4 or 5 tastings, including one award winner.
Then went to a 2-1/2 hour long Salon with 40+ cideries/wineries represented, each with 2-7 different ciders, scrumpies, common ciders, ice ciders, fortified ciders....EGAD!
Let's see....42 cideries, times 4 ciders each = Good Lord protect us all.
Thank the Gods that they had dump pails, and I only went after the sweeter types, a mere 30 or so.
Cideries from England, New Zealand, Spain, France, Washington State, VA, MI, CT, MA, Indiana, VT, NH, Oregon, Wisconsin, Minnesota...and so on.
This is the LARGEST collection of ciders on display in the world as far as I know...and started because two different people walked out of a Washington State spiel on 'eating' apples (nothing on cider when they went for this) 19 years ago; they met in the parking lot and thus....

My personal favorite was meeting the couple that show heirloom apples, they have over 100 varieties on the farm.
My personal favorite of these is 'DECIO', know to have been cultivated from Roman times...yes, the earliest known cultivated apple, still grown after 2000+ years.

Recovering,
R. Grimm.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Clockwerks and mutants. Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Mikeal St. Ayre, Vagabond, explorer, inventor, huckster, and several other things as well. I currently find myself at the head of a crew bound and determined to make Steampunk a thing in the fine city of Lowell. 

In furthering our attempts, we have begun a series of Steampunk Musical showcases in our fine town. 

On 23 September, we welcome Eli August and The Abandoned Buildings together with Hellblinki to Ward Eight. Ward Eight is a pub that is styled as a speakeasy, with wonderful period embellishments, and a great beer and liquor selection. The show has but only a $5.00 cover, and should be blast! more info can be found via the Lowell Steam website . Thank for this moment of your time, and I hope to see you there. 

Hail the Five Emperors!

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).

Comment by Professor Argon Bats on February 12, 2012 at 3:10pm

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

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