Hi there all,

Another lurker here, I'm Ian from the depths of Yorkshire (wakefield/pontefract way), been interested in Steampunk for around the last year but as always I've had too much on to really get into it. Finally have a little time in hobby schedules and interested in learning some leather and metal working (something I've wanted to do for about the last 10 years). Happy to learn new crafts and meet people.

My Wife and I are taking our first steps into the scene and have already booked tickets to The Asylum in Lincoln next month.

Just gotta figure out how to make 2 costumes on a budget within a month...

Greetings, from Okehampton, Devon.
Previously residing in Leicester, previously previously from Thetford, Norfolk, and originating from Canvey Island, Thames Estuary.  As such I'm often in all of these areas, so I will no doubt meet many of you in my travels.
I am minuspeptic, frasmotic, even compunctuous to have caused you such pericabobulations.

Shameless self plug for a blog that's at least 1/3rd Steampunk: http://talestraversingtime.blogspot.com/

Well, my boyfriend lives here, so it seemed like a good idea.

hailing from the great but seemingly unknown city of leicester desperately looking for some steampunk pals :) oh dear that sounds like a personal ad :S give us a shout if your from leicester my chums :)

I have seen a couple of posts mentioning Leicester as there was, at one time, an idea of running an event at the Space Centre, but nothing seems to have been mentioned since.  If there are other Steampunk people in Leicester/shire perhaps we could get together for a cup of tea?

Not unknown at all - I occasionally go shopping in Leicester for shiny things!  If you do arrange a meet in Leicester, do post the details on BG, and if it's on a Saturday and I can get along, I will.  In any case, welcome!

It seems that it would be quite easy for me to bump into Oswaldbastable, but cannot send him a message...

I think the inability to send messages is because youve just joined

I just got home today [5 and a half hours on a train \o/], but I'm down there fairly often these days. Perhaps I'll bump into you!

    that seems like a reasonable explanation to me! Anyways- I have been moderately into Steampunkery and suchlike for many years, but have only just started making specifically Steampunk costume for Lrp and stuff. We shall be at the asylum for the saturday, look out for a Stiltwalker if you want to say hi!

Welcome to the forums, there are quite a few of us in Wales (I'm from the North) I hope to see you at future events.

Thank you. I would have liked to have gone to the Asylum last year but something got in the way (or probably monies were tight). Unfortunately the Asylum date this year now clashes with a wedding. So it looks like I'm going to have plenty of time to get ready for next years instead.

Argh! First time I noticed this thread, I`ve been posting for a few days now.  :-[
Well, I don`t imagine there are many other Steampunks anywhere near me...I live near Cape Wrath in the far north of Scotland.

I don't imagine there are that many people near you, let alone steampunks  :D And don't worry, I was on here a week before I noticed this thread  :)

:D True...there`s an elderly couple about a mile away but that`s basically it.
I`m really envious of all the meet ups and groups on here!  :'(
