Pandoracon at Crowne Plaza Hotel - Blue Ash

September 28, 2012 at 4pm to September 30, 2012 at 4pm
Pandoracon is a brand new convention for fans of science fiction, fantasy, anime, LARP, comics, gaming, cosplay, and various other flights of imagination. But what makes this Con different? Pandoracon is a dynamic experience that allows attendees many opportunities to participate in activities; this is not a flea-market hall full of tables. The programming of Pandoracon is built around genre fans gathering together to celebrate their joy of all aspects of the Dork Side of the Farce. While…See More

Profile Information

Introduction
Former member of the The Flying Cloud Academy dance group, attending ballroom dances at the Royal Courts of Europe in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries in clothing that was correct for each period (to keep the citizens of each era from detecting our intrusion into their epoch). I also have a website www.antiquetelescopes.org, which reflects my interest in victorian astronomy and telescopes.

Welcome to the Empire, sir!  If you are at all interested in Steampunk ballroom dance, I invite you to visit the Seattle Clockwork Quadrille group here on the Empire.  It has been quiet there recently, but I will be posting new videos and articles on etiquette and fashion and instructional videos as well.  See you there!

Colonel Octavius,

     Thank you for your reply to my query.   I explore many antique shops and malls and as I am new to the Victorian ethos I am sure I will eventually find the perfect frame.   I certainly enjoyed viewing the photographs on your page.    You seem to be a gentleman who has "gotten it all together" in a most impressive manner.

Kindest Regards,     Phineas Wotan Sprockett, occ

Col. Octavius,

     I am fascinated by your pinz nez in your page photo.  I am trying to find one that is actually wearable; difficult in that the ones I have found are excruciatingly painful to "pinch" on ones nose.   On Wednesday I found and purchased in an antique shop in Georgetown, Ky. a pristine lorgnette which folds.   Of course it is to be held and not perched on the nose.   I am not sure whether it should be stored in the folded position or in the released.    Do you have any information you could share with me on this subject?

With Hopes of Learning More about Eyepieces,    Phineas Wotan Sprockett, occ

Welcome Mr. Brown. I would be interested in discussing dancing if ever we should meet. I used to call for an English Country dance group.

I loved reading some of the telescope history on your website... will read more later, getting late.

Greetings Mr. Brown and welcome to the Empire. I took the liberty to look at your antique telescope page and found it delightfully interesting, though I must admit I am interested in all things ocular. I would would very much enjoy adding you to my small list of "friends" and am sending you a friendship request. Please do not feel obligated to respond.

Sincerely, Mr. J.Leopold M.O.S. & F.G.
