I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a local meet up. Maybe once a month? A chance for all of us to meet, to exchange ideas, and just for fun.Continue

What got you into Steampunk?

I was just wondering how you all got involved in steampunk. For me it was quite by accident. I had known something about it but it started with me looking for fractals. One link lead to another and…Continue

Fantastic!  We won First Prize!  Many laps around Monument Square.  Huge crowd favorite, too.  So sorry you didn't make it (we gave out rides). Videos & Pix on my facebook page!

John A Mainspring S B Corey how did your walking machine do? Unfortunately I was unable to make it.

Christopher, Temporal Entities of Syracuse has a booth at Scare-A-Con each year & I think we're going to try & do something more at RetroGameCon this year.

Neither are specifically steampunk, but they are close to you if you're in Oswego. :D

Hello all,

I'm a local author, Oswego, and am looking for some steampunk conventions or events here in upstate. I'm particularly looking for venues that migh be interested in my book or possibly as a speaker.

Fellow Upstaters--anyone going to World's Fair this year? I am looking for a ride; I can gain a room cheaply about 10 minutes away in a decent hotel/motel.I can either share gas or you can share the lodgings.

Under construction now: a walking machine for the Enchanted City Festival in Fall 2016 in Troy, NY.

Am I the last one standing?  Upstanding? Upstate standing?

Greeting, Doc Wiseman. Very nice to meet you.  I grew up on the likes of Wild, Wild, West as well. I fear there is no cure for your "affliction". Embrace your ills. What fun is it to be just like everyone else? Allow me to welcome you to the Aether. Please feel free to share pictures of your work.

Greetings fellow fan of the Aether. I'm not sure how we're defining "Upstate" but I suppose it's all relative. I am in New Windsor (Eastern Orange County) about half way between NYC and Albany. I have been into Steampunk for about twenty years but I was unaware of it. I am a raging history nut and as a result alternate histories are a passion as well. My favorite history period is from the Mid 19th to the Mid 20th Centuries, I am a long time fan of steam power and airships. I grew up on Wild Wild West on Saturday afternoons, Jules Verne novels, and Gaslight. It wasn't until about 10 years ago that my "affliction" was identified as Steampunk. I am a leather smith, a wood worker and jewelry maker. I also build miniatures and am a trained draftsman. I usually refer to myself as a frustrated artist. Looking forward to meeting some like minded people.
