"Ugh, I meant to say cowl.   I was at the PA Ren Faire last weekend and browsed some of the vendors and such, I'm more looking for a pattern to make one myself."

"I know that this may border on trite, but maybe... "Lets all be constructive rather than destructive" seems like a pretty fair assessment of what I hope to find in the steampunk peeps.  Are we really so set on "betterment"…"

"Certianly I would like to hear anyones ideas on how to improve anything ive made. I love constructive critisism on anything i do, I think Cogni was more against elitist attitudes than being nice to peoples face then laughing at them. "

"I agree while it is better to be honest im not sure about this " if I don't know what I did wrong, then I can't improve my efforts" How exactly is someones interpretation of steampunk "wrong"? "
