Does Grand Rapids really have an active Steampunk group?  Or asked another way, is there one that meets outside of on-line conversations? I'm looking for something social. I'd be very interested in…Continue

This is where we can discuss any outfits we're making or thinking about, show off your work, network to find accessories, share links, etc. This is all about the fashion.

Hey, if anyone is going to the Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts, next weekend, June 5-7, look me up. I will be in the Art vendors tent. As I see that it is to be in the low to mid 80's, and I do not function well in the heat to begin with, I will not be donning my waistcoat and frock. I will be under this sign-

This may be a bit of a cross post but I thought it needed to be here as well.  The World Steam Expo in Detroit is currently done.  It is expected to be replaced with a new Steampunk Con.  There is currently a Kick Starter for the new con that seems to be gaining some steam (pun intended).  I am cross posting this because this forum post was the best info I could find on the subject.World Steam Expo

Id love to read it!  life has been too crazy for me for quite some time.  With out going into too much detail my ex fiance had been working to alienate me from about everyone i knew for a long time.  Posted things as me on various sites, sent disrespectful emails and such to about anyone she could as me.  And most recently stabbed me.  Thankfully that time in my life is over.  I hope to be more active in the coming year and a calmer easier life ahead.

Hello friends, it has been way too long since I have posted anything on here and I do apologize for this.  Life has it's ways....

Just wanted to let you know, that currently I am working on a Steampunk retelling of "The Iliad" set in a Steampunk, Post Civil War Era.  The main setting will be here in Michigan and also in Maine (Acadia Island to be exact).  

I hope everyone is well and I will be posting character concepts here soon.  Would love the feed back.

Finally my wife and I are back in Michigan. Now comes the fun part unpacking all the boxes we packed to move back here.

Comment by Lord Nicodemus on April 17, 2012 at 8:49am

Agreed, unfortunately my schedule prohibits anything fun for the time being.  I work, sleep and once in a while venture to the grocery store.

So we must simply get something going and soon! I am aware of the World Steam Expo is soon and there is also Origins Game Fair in OH the week after (I am only making it to the latter but oh well), but we need to have a meet up soon. I only have a week and a half of school left before this semester is over so I should be free after that (assuming where ever I get summer work leaves me time, haha). Maybe something in GR? Or painting the town in Rockford? Greenville? Muskegon or Grand Haven or Holland? Anywhere or anything just I haven't done anything with fellow steampunks for a looooong time and I'm antsy (as I'm sure you all are too). GLYAASDI --Nate--
