Does reanimating monsters count as a hobby? 'cause that's what I'd do.

Collecting natural and archeological specimens was very popular in Victorian times. Mummy unwrapping parties did a good deal of [educational] damage. Speaking of parties, laughing gas parties were a thing, while one still had to get a tooth pulled without any painkillers.

Finding Steampunk names in everyday life. One of my regular customers' last name is McKracken  Grin

There's an irrigation hardware supplier around my way under that name.

I forgot music. Many a 19th century mansion was built with various kinds of organ preinstalled, and other houses often had pianos, harpsichords etc. and if you were rich enough to have one, but not rich enough to have servants, it's rather wasteful if no-one in your household can play. And it wasn't like there was any other way to get musical entertainment, until the phonograph; and that must have come with many disadvantages in terms of trying to party at home or at the pub/saloon.

Those ether/laughing gas parties was how anaesthetics were invented though. When a participant cut himself badly and realized he felt no pain.

My steampunk persona likes to dress up in a suit and tie, and take steam-powered devices and modify them so they look like they are powered by microelectronics and made of plastic.

Very good! Cheesy

What if they looked backwards, rather than forwards?  After all, Steampunk is of times past.  So they might build enormous treble water wheels, get around in bullock powered wooden trains held together with exorbitant amounts of rope and make rapidly firing automatic crossbows.  Clearly they would all wear customised Templar helmets, perhaps carrying an Excalibur like sword with a ridiculously elaborate guard.

I can't think of what they'd do for goggles though...

Cossoft: What you describe there is rather like the pre-raphaelites.

Many of my pastimes are based upon past time. Through time travelling, I've collected insects and other arthropods from the distant past and gone "antiquing" after various battles to add to my medieval sword and armor collection. My favorite, though is the Hadrosaur Dressage Club. However, we don't talk about Hadrosaur Dressage Club; that's the first line of the charter.

I not only know nothing of any charter but I categorically deny that it could ever exist!
