I would like to introduce myself. I'm Jon. I'm new to steampunk, and haven't been able to find anyone that shares my interest in northern Utah until now. I don't have any attire yet, other than a pair of goggles that I made. Any help in creating my "persona" would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thursday's Photoshoot:


The shoot is for the SLCC Globe's newspaper at Wheeler Farm 11:00am, and the participants seem to be around 5-6. It won't take more than an hour I'm sure, but do come in your steampunk threads as that's well, the theme they want!


Safe skys to those who travel to WWWC this year! Much adoration and fun to you and yours! xo

Next Thursday, the third, Mr. Joseph of the Globe would appreciate some attendees to a photoshoot at the Inn on the Hill in downtown SLC to promote steampunk. IF anyone can make that, it would be great of you!  Please IM me if you are interested/able to be a part of the shoot Thursday AND if you have questions/concerns/or just want to bother me about everything else.

A message from the Professor:


Just thought I would let you all know about "A Steampunk Affair" in Las Vegas on the night of March 12th. I figure you are my friends closest to Vegas, wouldn't hurt to let you know about it. Hope to see some of you there!


your o'b't,

Prof. Phineas Boggs

Greetings all. My name is Joseph Meyere and I'm a reporter for Salt lake Community College's newspaper, The Globe, and I am doing an article on Steam Punk and would really like input from enthusiasts like yourselves.
