Hi there!

With my growing interest in Steampunk, I am looking for others in the Philadelphia and tri-state (PA, NJ, DE) areas.  I recently went to Wicked Faire and saw a lot of great Steampunk there.  Steampunk at Dragon*Con seems to be growing as well.

So, I've started a Yahoo!Group called Steamadelphia for Philly/PA/NJ/DE enthusiasts:

Hello. I think there was a Philadelphia-related thread on here a few days ago. By now it might be a couple of pages back. Anyway, good to know there are others in the area who are interested in Steampunk.

In all reality, "steampunk" is anachronistic, innit? Otherwise it's just Victorian dress-up.

chain smokin', sleep needin', apparel designin', mohawk havin', tea drinkin', steady cursin', boy charmin', card readin' rabble-rouser and amusement park cleverly disguised as a woman

Greetings all.

I'm new to steampunk but look forward to getting started. I live in Schuylkill county about 100 miles northwest of the city. After seeing some of the creations at the cons I can't wait to get started.

Hello....

I would like to throw my hat into the ring of those who live in PA, though its not exactly Philadelphia, I do live in Reading, as well as attend uni there. Speaking of which, my uni is having its second annual Victorian Fashion Ball this February. If anyone is interested in more information, please feel free to message me about it.

I really didnt mean to sound like an advert. But its something I thought local Steampunks would be interested in.
