I'm always in Victorian attire in some way, shape or form.  However, when I go out at night, I have me top hat and walking stick.

I had to vote for the airship cruise, as I already do, or have done, pretty much all of the others in Steampunk attire.

Nonsense.  I find myself having far more fun now that I did when I was in my twenties.  A middle-aged, middle class white man is allowed much more latitude in eccentricity than almost anyone else.  Except if my daughters are visiting.  (They are all right with my dressing up for an event, but try to wear one interesting hat while out grocery shopping, or a bowtie to a movie,  and you would think I was embarassing them in front of their middle-school friends all over again.)

Or it could be that I just grew out of giving a d*mn what others think of me.

I'm trying to think of circumstances where I'd want to be twenty years younger, and I'm drawing a blank.

Same here.  I often call to mind a favorite quote by Dr. Seuss:  'Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

I cannot say as it involves a barrel of fine port, a bottle of absinthe and Imogen Stubbs.

I see no reason to have a limit on partaking of any activity, surely in this modern age one should dress for comfort and if that is your steampunk clothing then so be it.

Ahh.

Begging indulgence for a moment,
I thought perhaps I'd clarify an aspect of my comment.

Twenty years ago,
I wouldn't have to take pain medication before leaving the house.
I wouldn't have to 'time' my outings to coincide with that medication,
I wouldn't have developed a myriad of allergies (yet)
and I wouldn't have to 'plan' so thoroughly the many aspects
of coping with the discomfort of chronic pain
that one must when it's ones' burden.

I'd love to be speaking from the mindset
of simply longing for one's youthful appearance;
and I dearly wish that were the only motivation:
however, I'd gladly look as I do now

to have the mobility I took for granted...then.

That is an aspect of attending my first Steamcon
that has to be carefully planned and executed.

So rather than wish I could 'go back' to then,
I'd much rather have the pain free existence I had then ... now.

I didn't see it as an option, so I'll have to give a write in answer to the question,

Should have been at our New Years bash in Corby, there was much Time Warping, Prince Charminging and Monster Mashing in steampunk attire Tongue

von Corax,
   Yes again!  It's.....pardon the pun....Timeless!  Smiley

darkshines,
   Wish I had been there.  I'm going to make a visit to England one day. And I see they play RHPS at the "Prince Charles Cinema" each month, would love to see it there. 

All,
   Watch "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and see how many Steampunk items  you can pick out.  I'll start the ball rowing with two obvious items: Top Hat and Goggles.
   I completed the survey with my best answer on the list..."Visit Victorian historic sites".  I'm trying to spark interest in doing just that at The Biltmore House in Ashville N.C. and getting Abney Park to play there.  I can't think of anything more steampunk in our corner of the world.

The house exterior, the 'zen' room, the entrance hallway with the iron-cage elevator, there's three more right there...

Now  your post has got my mind wondering even further...I wonder what it would be like to open a corset with my teeth!   Shocked

um well as a newbie to steampunk and since i dont have any steampunk clothes i guess this is easier for me to answer, because this is what i would do if i could.

i picked 3 of them but the one i would love to do is ride in a Zeppelin, i think that would be so neat, or a hot air balloon. its still one of my dreams.

the three i picked are:
go to a tea

ride a steam locomotive

take an airship cruise.

Can I suggest riding in an ostrich race?  I think the sight of some gentlemen trying to stay on the back of an ostrich while holding onto their top hats would be a marvellous spectacle Cheesy

I also used to walk past the area where they kept the Lord Mayor of London's carriage when it wasn't in use and said that I should come down in full Victorian gear and hijack it, just to see the news pictures of a man in a top hat and waxed moustache charging down the streets of modern London in a gold horse drawn carriage.

Unfortunately I can think of better things to do with my life than spending most of it in prison for a moment of hilarity so never actually did it but every time I saw it there I was tempted, especially when the horses were still attached.
