Greetings all, I have found myself in a bit of a quandry. I am looking for something fitting in the headwear department. My chosen persona may seem a bit cliché from what I've perused on the forums…Continue

"I fell quite the same. Only one of my friends has some kind of interest and he is far from devoted. Because of some limitations i have no attire or anything so i kinda feel like a wanna be. But i feel its the best genre ive ever found."

"I'm brand new to this as well, and I'm also in Houston. 42nd Airship Battalion seems to be a somewhat loose affiliation of airships, which are roughly equivalent to groups who are either local and have a similar philosophy. As was recently…"

Feeling like a fish out of water..

I know the title sounds whiny and it is truly not meant to be. I merely wish to state how I'm feeling when it comes to the Steampunk Community. None of my friends have any interest in Steampunk, and neither does my spouse. It also doesn't help that so many people out there make these wonderous gizmos and the only steampunk attire and weapons i can seem to come up with are mass produced articles of clothing and modified NERF weapons. I am working on a Longstrike variation that i have yet to see,…See More

"Lets see...the Broomhandle Mauser -- officialy Pistole C96 -- came out in 1896 so is very late Victorian.  Nice looking piece too. The 1911 -- officially Model 1911 Colt Automatic Pistol -- is very interesting.  Model 1911 is the US…"

"In whose world, Irishman, is the War of Northern Agression considered too early?  Many of your fellow countrymen fought on both sides.  The Colt 1851 Navy, the Colt 1860 Army ... and several others ... were carried by both sides."

Welcome to the Empire and the 42nd Captain Grey.  If you make it to Comicpalooza, please be sure to introduce yourself.  I will have a table in Artist Alley and will be giving a couple of panels.

Welcome to the Empire Capt. Grey!  I can see by the discussion your in the thick of it.  Just wanted to provide a link to the 42nd Airship Battalion page and the SCARS page, look them over and join if you like.  Also here is a link to some Upcoming Meet-Ups and Events.  Oh, by the way, keep looking for the right hat- when you see it you will know.  However, it seems to me that most " Captains " have to wear more than one "hat".
