Hello ladies, gents, and huge greene thynges with lots of legges! I'm Marion. I've been into steampunk for a good three years now, and known of Brass Goggles for some time, but for some reason I put off joining until yesterday. But here I am!
Along with steampunk, I'm obsessed with Discworld, libraries, and writing.
I currently reside on the eastern side of California, but for some time I lived a biscuit-toss away from Santa Rosa, CA which I consider to be the steampunk capital of the world.

Ahoy! I'm Kristin, fan of steampunk for 2 years but only now really starting to get into it because it's taken me that long to amass a passable collection of thrift store skirts, scarves, and corsets. Now working on the brass accessories, bustles, and a couple of "good" quality corsets. I can sew reasonably well, and I'm planning to start up again with pirate costumes for myself and the kids.

I have 6 kids, all of whom are into steampunk as well, or Victorian-style goth. Cheesy I'm an old-school 80's goth myself, but found the neo-Victorian crowd to be much friendlier, and more fun than today's gaggle of teen hardcore goth wannabe's. My favorite group is Abney Park, and I also love Muse, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Danny Elfman, and all those 80's alternative groups. Love YA fantasy and steampunk; despise Twilight with a burning passion. My movie obsessions are Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, LOTR, and anything Tim Burton.

I'm a writer and nearly ready for the second round of sending my first novel to agents (first round ended in my realization that the book needed more rewriting than I'd thought).

And right now I'm wearing the dogtag necklace inscribed with Nathaniel Johnstone's name and title (chief gunner and bartender). He gave it to my 9yo at the Wonderland Tim Burton Ball a few weeks ago!

You and I have a ton of things in common - the most important being that we hate Twilight with a passion.  Tongue  Welcome!

Thank goodness! I stopped going to a writing forum because all the women my age were Twilight freaks. Not that they weren't nice, but it was starting to creep me out. I'm very tolerant of people with different tastes than mine, but you can only hear a group of middle-aged women gush over Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner so many times before you run away screaming.

I'm 65, just retired, and now I can do all the stuff I WANT to do rather than waste time earning a living!

I guess I've been Steampunk all my life without knowing it. I love old machinery, old cars, old ships, old buildings, old music (Celtic, Baroque, Renaissance), science fiction ( I grew up reading Verne and Wells, which permanently warped my psyche into a parallel dimension), alchemy, reading, discussing philosophy and ranting about bureaucracy. I'm not into computer games but fascinated by the world of CG special effects; "Lord of the Rings", "Golden Compass" and "Avatar" are particular favourites.

I live in Western Canada; anyone else active out here on the Western Edge of the Known Universe?

Sup, im new around so dont bully me much. just remember i got big guns.

What can be said'bout me is that i was always a fan of steampunk tech and been here and there, im a GURPS (table-top RPG system) player, and i did a couple steampunk campaigns. im a fan of course, of brass goggles and monocles, and the usual steamworld. Of course, i like playing the engineer-alchemist-mechanic type. so thats it.

Hi, I'm Tom. I've been vaguely interested in steampunk for a while. I got very interested when I first came across it as a movement, but to my eternal shame, lost interest a bit, and sort of drifted away from steamy-stuff. My interest has been renewed recently, as my girlfriend just independantly discovered steampunk.

I live in whitby, where, apart from the goth weekend (and Abney Park last year), I have ready access to various steamy things (the steam railway, the steam bus, the museum of victorian science...) and I feel it would be a crying shame for me not to fully avail myself of the opportunities my location affords me. To this end, I joined the forum, and... well, here we are.

Hi, everyone, I'm new too. I'm a corset enthusiast (comfortable daily wear, not tight-lacing), discovered Steampunk that way, and enjoy the aesthetic - the mix of the romantic and the mechanical, the past and a potential future.

I geek out over biology, history, languages, Star Trek, She-Ra, Spyro the Dragon, and skepticism. I share my home with my fiance, quite a few orchids, a great many books, and our "kids",  a dog and a snake.

You and I should get along famously! We share a lot of interests!

Er - except Twilight. Of course, although I like it, I can and do willingly admit it's poorly written drivel. Still, I personally find that it is not without its charm. This is, of course, the books, and not the movies, which I am told are even more inferior than the books. But I am also aware that I am more tolerant than most when it comes to things I like (and here it's vampires). I can and have gone on at great length as to how horrible the books are, and yet, I read them all anyway, and to be fair, enjoyed them.

But oh! Tim Burton is a hero in my eyes! He has single-handedly restored my dwindling faith in the business of picture-shows. And Depeche Mode - Ah... now there is some music!

My wife and I are fans of the He-Man She-Ra cartoons and even named our cat She-Ra  Cheesy
I like Star Trek also but love Star Wars.

You should find BG to be a great place with a wonderful mix of interesting people.

Along with steampunk, I'm obsessed with Discworld, libraries, and writing.

I agree with all of this!

Hi, I'm Lily and have been lurking around here for a while now so I thought I'd introduce myself. It seems I have been steampunk for several years without knowing it, as I only discovered this wonderful phenomena a few months ago.
I'm very glad I have discovered steampunk- and Brass Goggles seems to be a great place.

I'm currently at university studying English Literature (an excuse to have my nose permanently stuck in a book  Grin) and I love all things geeky- Star Trek, Discworld and Doctor Who especially!

Looking forward to chatting with you all  Smiley

Welcome to the steamiest forum in the known universe.

 A great many of us actually. It's quite a common phrase in these parts.
I felt the same way myself having some of my earliest memories being going to the theatre to watch "The Island at the Top of the World" and on television two movies that stuck in my mind were "Captain Nemo and the Underwater City" and of course "20,000 Leagues under the sea".

Indeed, you are in good company.  Smiley
