There was a camera crew from CBS Sunday Morning at the Steampunk World's Fair on Saturday, but I didn't hear when the segment was supposed to air. Does anybody know? I would love to see it.

"Not so busy, perhaps. Professor MacGregor came together several years ago when I started getting interested in Steampunk. The Renaissance festival characters have accumulated over nearly two decades of going to the fairs.  In some cases, it is…"

Professor G. L. MacGregor replied to Lady Rayna Keller's discussion How many different characters or outfits do you have?
"Right now I have just one character with a couple of variations. Professor MacGregor is a prosperous, but by no means aristocratic, man of science. His daily wear consists of a waistcoat, a bowler hat, and a couple of leather pieces of my own…"

"The colours were so boring! Personally I like to see Steampunk outfits of rich purples, deep blues, reds... something a little majestic and vibrant. Not that I think Steampunk should have any place on the runway, anyway. "

"Well, it's been around long enough for there to be jokes about it (i.e. Steampunk is what happens when goths discover brown). Seriously, I think a lot of it has to do with the period photographs. Since they are either black and white or sepia…"

That is an excellent piece of headgear indeed, and I highly endorse your acquisition of it!

I like Captain Spaulding especially for cosplay because he always struck me as something of a fraud... Also, when I was a long-haired kid, I needed to play Groucho characters with hats so that I could hide my hair, so I was always either Captain Spaulding or Professor Wagstaff. That isn't an issue now, but Captain Spaulding does fit in wonderfully with the era. :)

It was nice to meet you and Amanda, too! I'm sure we'll be at many of the same events, as Capt. Buford and I don't live too far away from you at all. (And my whole persona did grow out of the Captain Spaulding bit - I've been dressing up as Groucho from time to time since I was ten, and it seems he's followed me into steampunk!)

Thank you sir, most kind of you.  I so rarely advertise as I typically like the "word of mouth approach, so it's most gratifying to know a few of the ads are interesting to people.  Your compliment on my website is perhaps even greater than you realize in today's "automatic website" environment.  I design all my own graphics and still program "old school" with hard code, so I consider the site one of my creations in a more artistic sense.  So again, thank you most heartily.  It's a great pleasure to meet you.
