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
"Nice, functional foundation there, sir
As some others have said - what kind of monsters are you hunting, what do you need to hunt them and do you collect souvenirs ?
My son wanted a monster hunter - so we made up a gun which fired small…"
Love your comments
Cant say what my folks would say about it given my age - but all I know is that in our household it is now a family thing
with me as the chief maker for all things involving making stuff which is not made of…"
"As others have said - check out the pictures of other folks and choose a theme then build up gradually from there
The great thing is that you can start really simply and build on that
A period-looking hat, a waistcoat, a pair of goggles and a gadget…"
"Funny story related to "Mares Leg"
At Dragoncon I met a couple who were nicely attired with a western theme - and the young lady had the cut down winchester in a holster strapped to her leg which was quite exposed by her saloon girl…"
"I like the idea of the hair being wrapped up in cable which as attached to some sort of connector which you had broken loose from to escape. If you really wanted to jazz it up you could weave in some lengths of ELwire which would glow or…"
"Many thanks good lady. If only I could use my Tesla-gauss rifle on those vile creatures - life would be so much more simple ;-)
That reminds me of one other similarity between my persona and I - we do both enjoy a good whisky at the end…"
"Hmm, Main difference is that real life Mike Cannon has never had to face down a rogue steambot or an evil Edison corporation agent in a life or death situation and my real life motorcycle has a gasoline powered engine and runs on roads instead…"

"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
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
