Unfortunately I'm one of those people that doesn't have any friends interested in Steampunk, so going to cons, I tend to be left alone wandering around by myself. Being not the most socially skilled…Continue

"For me i guess its alot like this fan. Getting there by going about it all, the wrong way. To go against the grain is punk in the truest sense. "

'PUNK the Circle! Steampunk gathering at Parade the Circle event in Cleveland OH at University Circle, Cleveland Museum of Art

June 9, 2012 from 10:30am to 4pm
Greetings! Come join me to watch, marvel, photo and be photo-ed at the wonderfully creative Parade the Circle event at University Circle in Cleveland. Local groups of artists, musicians, dancers and just lovers of good art and a good time create fantastic costumes and small floats mostly from found objects. The riot of colors, sounds and imagination is enough without the demos, food and music. (See my photo album from this event in 2011) Last year we just went and watched and I wold be…See More

"Oh man, I'd love to come, but our big Old West event is happening the same day in Bedford, PA. Makes me sad too, cause I have a friend that I've gotten into steampunk who loves trains and would love to do this."

Did you see this event?  Alter Ego Time Traveler Experience at the Great Lakes Medieval Faire.  I'm going on the 10th.  I was just going to post this as an event but it is already here!

Greetings!

I put together another invite for people to gather at the Parade the Circle event this Saturday the 11th.  Check it out and perhaps your work schedule will allow.   

 

Cheers friend,

Boom Boom

I used to re-enact a great deal, now its more of an occainsional hobby.

Sorry, i just noticed your question.
It was shot at the Civil War event at Conner Praire Park, in their historical village. May 2010.

The misunderstanding did seem a bit wilful at times but the whole area is a minefield . Cultural appropriation takes a number of forms here - including commercial - and heated debate is not unknown .
At 9:50pm on October 4, 2010, Prof. Sebastian Fate said…
Dear Kate , It seems to me that the cultural appropriation debate has gone in circles and any further comment would just leave one open to further misunderstanding . More heat than light ! The nature of an interleaved thread means that even those who took part in the earlier discussion will find it fragmented . As well - one of the later participants is someone who follows me through the Aether - as a sort of chorus - without adding anything . Pity that some of our peers cannot restrain themselves in what might otherwise have been an illuminating discussion .
