"Greetings, Good Sir!
Welcome to the Empire... Steampunk certainly is quite an experience!
I'm not far from you in LA, (and I love Monterey) May I point you to the Manticore Society, a group of So. Cal Steampunk Enthusiasts...which…"
This group is for the steampunk society single's, from all over the world who knows you may meet the love of your life here. The one who makes you heart beat a million times faster then flying our ships!
I have in my past been an SCA member and a RenFaire participant...but never realized I had an interest in "Steampunk" or that it even existed. That is until I stumbled across an article on Google....
While Googling information about repairing Monitors I ran across an image of a Monitor and keyboard that looked like it had been made in the 1930's. A Mr. Hieronymus Isambard "Jake" Von Slatt was the maker and his article lead me to his Steampunk Workshop. It was the first time I'd ever even seen or heard the word "Steampunk".
After seeing many of the items he had created, I was immediately stuck with how much these items looked like they were props from some of my favorite movies; "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen", "Sleepy Hollow", "Stardust"..."The Golden Compass".
It was at that moment that I realized why I liked these movies, apart from the story…it was how the movies looked. I not only liked the look and style of Victorian era clothing...but especially liked the devices in those movies that looked like they were created in that era, yet had functionality on par with modern day equipment. So…this is Steampunk! I Like it!
