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.
I was a fan of the books until about book 3 myself (when the characters had long been getting on my nerves), and to be honest the main reason I hate them are the legion of violently-fanatic 14-year-olds and the media that forces the actors on us at every turn! But I myself have been known to get really annoying in my own fangirlism. Grin

It seems I have been steampunk for several years without knowing it, as I only discovered this wonderful phenomena a few months ago.
*raises hand* Me too! A bit more than a few months for me officially, but I've been interested in steampunk elements for years without knowing what it was. I started playing the Myst games around 10 years ago. I fell in love with the designs and technology and had no idea it had a name. I'd just thought it was a cool game idea. LOL

I probably should have done this yesterday, but here we are...

Lothar Erfinder, at your service.

I'd always been a bit (brace yourselves) steamed (yes, I know, horrible) that the things I liked weren't everywhere, so imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered that, in fact, they were. I found this place and, I think, fell in love...

But I supposes I should properly introduce myself. I'm an aspiring writer and an avid reader, a bit of a scholar, and perhaps a bit mad. I love languages and edged implements, and hope to learn to use as many of each as I can.

Hi, I'm new here but not new into steampunk. Well, actually I didn't knew that I am one 'till someone asked me: Are you one of these steampunks.
I always liked to dress like that, and I also made some jewelery etc in steampunk style for myself. I thought I'm a kind of a weird goth.
I'm following this forum since months. really interesting stuff here!
Well, I am actually from Glasgow but I live currently in Switzerland and want to move back to the UK soon.

If you want to know more about me, don't be shy to ask.

Greetings!

I am happy to have finally joined this forum. For the past few days I was having a spot of trouble involving email activation codes. Ah well, anyway, it is a pleasure to make each of your acquaintances. My username explains a small bit of me already, I am clockworkToffer, and I am quite invested in the asthetics and general fun surrounding steampunk. Currently in attendance at university, I am both a History and Gender Studies major. It is my hope to get to know a great number of people through this forum which seems to be one of the greatest places to discuss steam-anything. Anyway, it has been lovely.

Greetings all! I have been lurking the BG forums for a long age, seeking much inspiration and revelry...thus I finally decided to create an account and join in on the fun. I just have a bad feeling (quoth Han Solo and assorted other characters) that my productivity is about to take a proverbial nose-dive, considering my unhindered access to the many threads here in these parts about a plethora of steamy topics, now with the ability to pitch in where conversation is concerned....::glances at the endless strings of tabs open atop her browser:: oh me, oh my!

In any case, a little about myself: I am of the fairer sex (some would say..), 23, living in Southwest Michigan with my fiance who is also quite steamy in his pursuits. I am an Anglophile, and a fan of historical fashion (the Victorian era being my absolute favorite.) I have certain proclivities toward sanguinarians. I love spending free time partaking of various incarnations of Sherlock Holmes (if it's radio drama, please give me Basil Rathbone, but if it's television, it simply MUST be the brilliant and tortured Jeremy Brett, may he rest in peace.) I dabble in experimental millinery, with my specialty being mini top hats and substantial fascinators. I also enjoy making mixed media jewelry with a steampunk bent. (I'll be at Acen in Chicago this year, peddling wares in Artist's Alley mostly as backup support for my artist friend's booth, if anyone should like to visit! I'll be the steampunk lolita! I'm not particularly into anime, or that side of these parts, but she gets busy and can use the backup. And I never miss an opportunity to ogle talented costumery for no good reason.)

Interesting facts....I am planning my wedding for early this fall, with Neo-Victorianism and steampunk being a major influence in theme, decor, and of course wardrobe. The event is at a restored Victorian theatre with the festivities continuing in a delightfully antique ballroom. Now if only I could find a reliable airship captain to whisk us away after the event to a far-off land of adventure...

Well, that's all for now! Delightful to meet you all. Charmed, I'm sure.

Ah, here we are. I was sure there was one of these around here somewhere, but was unable to remember where exactly it was.

Anyways, just wanted to pop in and say it's a lovely community you have here, and I hope I can contribute in some small way. I am also among those who loved the steampunk "style" if you will, but had no idea what it was called. I actually discovered it when my younger brother showed me a LEGO model he had found online. It was a steam powered dirigible, which looked marvelous. Thus, i started searching for more of this "Steampunk", and eventually found this site. And that's pretty much it.

Greetings and Salutations unto all,

       I'm not a steam punk per-say but I am a fan of the genre and see crossovers with my personal interest in 1920s Lovecraftian Mythos, as the strange and fortean sciences run together in both areas.

I am a propmaker, pewtersmith and general artist focusing on a sundry mix of topics most often dealing with the fantastic and phantasmagorical, horrific and historical. I am a collector of items from the 1870s-1940s, from books to firearms.

My goal is to lurk, steal...umm...borrow ideas and inspiration and perhaps offer an answer to a question if I can prove able.
If you're curious what sort of nonsense I call my art, I am a deviant artist (that sounds wrong) on deviantArt http://vonmeer.deviantart.com/

Well I figured this was the best place to start!

Hi all, I'm Aurelius 12, real name John Simpson Wedge. In the real world I'm a postgrad philosophy student and a museum educator/re-enactor. I've always been a steampunk fan, and I discovered these forums a few weeks ago. I've been lurking about ever since and figured it was about time I joined up!

Hello!

I've been reading the brass goggles blog for a while, although today is actually my first time on the forum.

I got interested in steampunk through some other blogs, mostly geek ones. (the spellcheck dictionary here does not list steampunk. odd.) I was reading some stuff about the early 1900's at the time that I thought was cool, and when I found out about steampunk, I thought it was pretty awesome. Cool

I'm not into the craft part of it much (yet) but I love the look of it, and I'm planning to try some stuff. (I tried to make some goggles today out of leather, but the secret of their construction eludes me as of yet...)

I don't have a 'persona' as of yet, and my name isn't really a reference to anything. (except sounding similar to Alessandro Volta, but that's more accidental than on purpose) I just thought it sounded nice, and sufficiently steampunk.

by the way, I was looking around on the Gutenberg website, and found a neat story, so I sent a blog submission in and it actually got used! Grin (the one that got posted yesterday titled Kipling and Airships) really good story, and how often does one find steampunk style fiction that's actually written in that age? (okay probably a lot, but I haven't found much yet.) So I guess that was my incentive to join the forum today. Grin

hope to talk more soon

Good day! Thought I'd actually step into the rabbit hole of steampunk (if you'll excuse the cliche) and join the forum! I've been inspired by its inventive charm and can't wait to learn more about it. I wonder what kind of punker I will be?

Your art is fascinating! I'm a deviant addict myself (having lost my artistic ability just after high school; I decided I had too many hobbies and had to narrow it down to keep my fragile sanity).

G'day
I am amazed, I've been a "steampunk" for 30 years and didn't know it!  Gogs and gears, over engineered machines, old clothes and wierd and wonderful gear.  I've devoured Steampunk Magazine and wish I was a lot younger, my wife says I'm going through my second childhood ... goggles, ray guns and brass lamps, airship pirate indeed!  Well damn the harpoons I'm looking for  my airship, I thought I parked it over there!  I'll be at Steampump in May, alas proper attire will need to wait for my tax refund ... but I'll be  there never the less.

Thank you all for being exactly what you are.

Cheers

Just thought I'd introduce myself here - I've been reading through the forums for a few days now, and figured I'd register as a member. I'm here to learn more about steampunk and to try to incorporate a little more of it into my every day ways. I love all things vintage, and I've bounced around eras for the last couple years. I'm deeply fond of the 40's and 50's, but I've always enjoyed the Victorian styles as well.

I will try not to be a stranger around here, but I can't promise I'll have much to say since I'm still learning Smiley Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself!
