It's been a while between drinks. I used to be on here many years ago but it became very highly political with the *makers* pushing in and telling everyone that they were the real steampunks and so forth. So now that that's all died down I decided to give BG another try. There's a few familiar faces amongst the icons, and some names I remember from the past.

I look forward to meeting you all again.

Lovely to see you here again, and your company at such events as Steampump is always appreciated.

I say 'bah humbug' to the maker elite - we are a silly mob and plan to stay this way, if anyone starts to take this seriously then they need a good horse whipping (with cream).

Good day to you all;

I am another who hails from the sunny antipodes, in this case the island of Van Diemen's Land.  That may not be so for much longer, for, after a long sojourn of many years, I am endeavouring to relocate to the far side of the colonies, to Perth, at some stage this year, due to impending nuptials.

After a stint working in IT for 8 years, I have now commenced retraining into a new field, that of libraries, currently undertaking a Diploma of Library and Information Systems.  Which means that once more I have returned to being a penniless student/writer.

I guess I could say I was interested in steampunk long before I really new much about it. Jules Verne and H.G. Wells were always big favourites of mine as a youngster, and I got to know about steampunk a lot more via games such as Arcanum and the Iron Kingdoms RPG.

Sir Richard Hammerman, gentleman-adventurer, my alter-ego, is in fact a character I have been writing about.

I am lucky in that my fiancee is also into steampunk - she gave me a pocket-watch for Christmas.  She also enjoys writing and so we have commenced working on a series together, and is also very much into art and craft, and would like to start making steampunk craft.  We are even contemplating a steampunk themed wedding.

Even thought I have been here a short while, I think I will throw myself upon this wall too.
My name is Kel, and I live in Melbourne with my lovely wife Ala.
I see myself as a designer, an inventor and general tinkerer. As well as working my way to branch manager of several brands of automotive parts suppliers, I have been an amateur engineer for about ten years now. I have large future plans and dreams, so now I work for myself and have some time, I have gone back to university. I previously studied physics, and was able to get credit for most of my previous units, and am now magically half way through an engineering degree.

I wouldn't entirely say steam punk is a way of life for me. Although not entirely historical based, peoples designs elements and ideas in Steampunk are generally based on a time when even industrial achievements had a beautiful form as well as a practical function. This seems to be missing so much today. I like the brass goggles forum a lot because everyone is generally very supportive, very friendly, and no one seems to take anything too damned seriously.

Welcome sir,

I think you and I will get on famously, I look forward to meeting you in Melbourne some time.

Give me a couple of weeks and my custom motorcycle workshop will be up and running at 810 High Street Thornbury - open Saturdays.

Ah well - I am starting to feel a little 'old' in the steampunk world, particularly after the recent Radio National interview for the current Antipodean Steampunk Show exhibition in QLD.

I am not building anything right now, but I am moving into a new studio spcae in March. I will have a share of an old glass making factory in Preston. Around 50m2 of seperated floor space inside a great old brick building with a high roof and a huge multipane window.

The primary aim of the space is to set up my custom motorcycle works - but it will also be my steampunk creating space. I am happy to make it available to other tinkerers as required (when I am there) and may even organise a makers day.

Stay tuned...

(Oh, and I am planning a steampunk influenced motorcycle build).

Greetings to my fellow Steampunk enthusiasts!

I go by the name Lady Kristiann here but my true name is Kristina, and I hail from a place called Sydney.

For me Steampunk has always been about the clothing - it is what attracted me to it, and it is what's making me stay. In this era of too casual and too provocative fashion, the elegance of Neo-Victorian style is a sort of rebellion for me (Not that I'm much of a rebel - I am more someone who's not afraid to stand out!)

Steampunk fashion also evokes a sense of adventure, because the fashion looks like the costumes from RPGs I play.

If I could wear a bit of Steampunk everyday, I would!

CONVICTS UNITE!!!!!!!!!

Prof. Convict Archfiend, shipped up on the Lady Nelson, and here to attend your lecture!

Hyperactive, breaker of things, I love to tinker. Pull things apart and try to put it back together.
I dabble in all sorts, in love with the automobile engine, would spend my pay cheque on my 4wd's V8, if one didn't need to eat.........or have a roof over head.......or power........ or..... Embarrassed
MAD Remote control fan, ranging for scale(ish) 4wd's, racing, to speed boats, slow or fast, I'll have a go!!

Been a fan of the SP furniture scene for a while now, and as I've grown wiser(PFF!! HARDLY!! Roll Eyes) with age(30), I've begun to delve a little deeper into it all. Will be diving in later this year with a stereo build

Here for a looksee and to learn. Spent a while now, reading through the forum and have enjoyed it all very much, and decided to join up in order to be able to tickle my inquisitive little mind that little bit more.

From a tin shed, stuck in the middle of the prehistoric wilderness of Van Diemen's Land,
Good Evening

Silly old thing called 'life' got in the way of all things steampunk.

That, and having five motorcycles to restore.
