Dressed in new rocket pack.  I asked my wife to take pictures of me in my new rocket pack, but instead she took pictures of my grandfather wearing it. Wink

*drumroll please* this is a first for me, I'm actually going to post a photo. Here goes.



It was taken at the Fool's Ball in Malvern last month. (A neighbour saw me getting into the car like that. "Are you going to a masked ball or somethin'?" he asked. No s**t, Sherlock.)

Lovely photo there SteamBlast Mary.   In reference to your goofy neighbor, I saw a great quote of a feller who was in the grocery store when he ran into a friend of his who asked "Well what're you doing here?"  "Oh, ya know, just hunting elephants" was the suggested response.  I'm a fan of such responses.  Leave them scratching their heads, it usually leaves a smile on your own face as well.


This was taken of me at a bike ride lighthouse tour (40 miles) starting and ending at Portland Maine.  When I walked up to finish registering the folks were scratching their heads and finally one of 'em found the gall to ask if I was in fact a rider.  When I told her I was, she told me I was an interesting rider.  After the fourth or fifth person asking if my tea (in the flask on my hip) was whisky, I started telling them it was.  Made for an interesting day.  Best response I got was a feller passing me on the left, as he did so he saluted and said "On yer left.  Carry on soldier".

A brief anecdote, while working on the Gold Finch http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,30440.msg690754.html#msg690754, I visited a grocerey store to purchase plastic straws to prevent my wiring from grounding on the metal insides of the gun. I asked an employee, "where would I find 'bendy straws'?" he showed me to them and asked, "are you having a party?" and I responded, quite honestly, "No, I'm building a ray gun." His face was priceless.

Ms. Mary, you look beautiful. That is a lovely outfit.

Greatestescaper, you look quite good as well. Sounds like the ride was lots of fun.

Thanks all.  Another anecdote to share, this happened yesterday.  I've been tilling a yard for a friend, which is hard dry dirt.  I've been working in a perpetual cloud of dirt for the past two days.  The dirt is of a similar color to my gus-crowned hat (so that looks real nice), and my jeans and shirt and the bandana I wear over my face are caked in it also.  I dismounted my bicycle while running errands on my way home from work and someone asked if it was hard roping cattle with such a rig.  I guess I look a bit funny, and should probably get a photo.

The Steampunk Society of Nebraska went out a few weeks ago to Lauritzen Gardens, a beautiful garden park, for general pictures and whimsey. These are a few of my favorites. (Also, I have blue hair in the photos. Woo!)

Thank you for all your kind comments. With photos of such standard on here, (the outfits and the photography could easily be professional) it's a little intimidating to throw one's hat into the ring. Please stop laughing. You know who you are.

Yep, it's my own design/work, though the shrug is from a Simplicity pattern, and the main fabric was actually curtains initially.

Now emboldened, here's another photo, taken at the World museum, Liverpool last weekend. I like that hat. That's a cool hat.
 [Any jokes along the lines of "who's the scary monster in the picture? Oh that's just Mary, the other is the animatronic dinosaur" will be hounded out for being too predictable.]

The dinosaur must have had very good manners to let you feed him like that.  Great picture and your hat is fantastic.  Did you make that, as well?

So what is a chap to do but put it all back on for a photograph?
