"Great shot. Methinks it's Atlanta and the Candler Building. Perfect vintage backdrop."

Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention II at Old Tucson

March 8, 2013 to March 10, 2013
Wild Wild West Steampunk Convention II is Arizona's first and only steampunk convention immersed in a western themed town. This is a revolutionary re-invention of the standard hotel-based convention. Our event is within Old Tucson, a famous movie studio and amusement park built in 1939. For this weekend only, Old Tucson is transforming into the world's only western-style Steampunk Theme Park!See More

"Nicely done write up Our only observation was that the music at the masquerade was a bit poor /dirge-like at times - but all a matter of taste Really liked your costume at Dragoncon - very effective"

That 'Misty' feeling is due to the 'Pea Soup' smogs. ... one day, we will pass a Clean Air Act! :0)

Kind Regards

Glad to meet you.
I found that my digital camera, which is two years old, has a sepia option. Very easy and made the pics really work.

What size El-wire did you use on the Valkyrie Mk.I?

"Do I detect a pun with the name of your airship and the crossed razor blades ?"

That you do. Although she was named for a long dead Admiral Todd, some bloody smart-a** crewman nicknamed her the "Sweeny" and that moniker has been adopted as an unofficial name with the result that her ship's badge/emblem is now a pair of crossed straight razors

Many, many thanks for the kind words.

Well then! I thank you your daughter greatly for the compliment! As a person who lives off tea and praise, such a comment has made me immensely happy!
As for my small cartoons, they are quick things that I produce off hand, for I fortunately prefer the pc with a scanner.

I saw that in my research. They already had Thompsons and they wanted to use the same ammo. The barrels on the real ones weren't nearly as heavy as I would like them to be on the USAM .45's. I intend to buy a slew of C96's and punk 'em up for issue to other Airship Marines... when we have them. :)

Where did you find the light tubes with the battery packs? I've seen similar strips for under-dash lights, but not with a battery pack.

I totally agree with you about the bullet being the backup. My character is very uneasy with all this technology. That's so great that you made it into a Gauss gun. My friend and I are trying to select the base weapon for our airship marines and when I saw your pic I thought, "That's it!" We were talking about gauss rifles even!! I am going to acquire one and take a look at what I can do with it. Ours would be more stripped down military versions of your super-sweet tricked-out civilian model, of course. :)

I'm thinking that we'll have to go with the old standard burnished/blued gunmetal and wood
