I'm a Half-English, Half-Scotsman living in Germany, and hope one day to fill the Tactile Board with creations both ornate and functional.
Sadly, that will have to wait till I have free time.
And Tools.
And Raw Materials.
And Money Tongue

Nonetheless, I thought it would be good to say hello before I turn into a Lurker.

Welcome to the forum, Mr. Purveyor. You're not alone in your struggle for monetary and chronological sources. Most of us have to balance the real world with our alternate reality! That is why Steampunks are renowned for their resourcefulness...

At your service,

Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen!
I'm Franz and I'm typing from Italy. I enrolled in this forum as I love Steampunk both in literature and costuming. I definitely love crafting steampunk themeded accessories and sewing my own outfits. So, I'm looking forward to meet new interesting people here!

I wish you all a nice day!

A warm welcome to the forum, and I very much hope you both will find time to post pictures of your creations here for us to marvel at.

Yours,

Hi all! I am a novice here (because we don't say n00b!) despite being old enough to be an honorary steam relic. Already introduced myself in the Oceania page but I think that one is sparsely travelled. At the risk of repeating myself, then, I'm from Adelaide, South Australia. Not a lot of steampunk on the surface that I can find, but some nice appropriate architecture, a single specialized clothing shop, and  nice old railway and maritime museums.
My name here was spur of the moment, and refers to Jimmy Melrose, a local aviation hero of the 1930s.
I grew up with Jules Verne, H.G. Wells and, yes, H.P. Lovecraft and other horror writers. My hear has been steampunk for decades.
Only recently have I added steam-like fashion to my wardrobe, carefully picking items that, if I wore one or two, would pass in the street, but if I wear three or four, an interesting hat and certain accessories, instantly changes me to steam. A bit like Clark Kent in a phone box, but entirely not. What I am finding interesting is a basic outfit, with a change of hat and neckwear and a quirky belt, goes from Victorian England to Wild west steampunk in moments. I've yet to tinker with making my own accessories.
So while I may not contribute much at first, I'll be soaking up the wisdom on these pages.

Indeed,a warm welcome to the forum. I always think it's such as shame no one has yet invested the aetheric teleportation device so all the far flung members of this institution could meet up in person, bu at least we have the these pages to meet in the virtually.

Yours,
Miranda.

Hi guys. I recently did Frankenstein as a play, and the theming was centred heavily around steampunk styling and sensibility. It got me looking in to it more and have really been captivated by the imagination and possibility of steampunk. At the moment, I'm not going all out in the steampunk mould, but am looking to bring subtle influences into my life... at least to start with anyway!

Look forward to finding out more on here.

Thanks

Hello Brassgoggles.
Been lurking on this site for a while now and thought it best I finally spoke.
I'm still relatively new to Steampunk, fresh off the dirigible so to speak, but not new to the concept to Steampunk!
What got me on board was realising my favourite genres sci-fi, Lovecraft horror and a passion for the industrial revolution created a Venn diagram with Steampunk at the heart.
So naturally here I am.

Hooray! So many new people in our little group of eccentrics who know more about Tesla than they should and likely have a strange obsession with corsets. Welcome, everyone!  Cheesy

Hello, PandaZai, and welcome! (Welcome, also, to all the others who have arrived recently.)

You are not the first to ask that question, and doubtless will not be the last. Everyone's answer will differ, but for me the answer remains this: I feel quite at home in the modern era. I simply do not wish to spend all my time at home. Smiley

Then there's the more radical answer: I have a home in the Modern Era, I just want to re-decorate!  Grin

Hello everybody,

I used to wear the grandad shirts and waistcoats back in the mid-eighties wandering around Greenwich when I was a spring chicken albeit without the top hat and goggles. Thirty years later I find myself wandering around Comic Con Birmingham and on a whim bought myself top hat and goggles and hey presto instant Steampunk... I think the grey beard and slight beer gut may have added to the effect, but the swan/ugly duckling transformation was complete...

For a living I make varnishes, lacquers and veneers and in my spare time I take pictures then destroy them to create new digital works of art.
