Hello all,

My name is Miranda. I'm a 31 y/o and I have a job that isn't worth mentioning. I'm an aspiring writer working towards finishing and publishing my first novel. This might seem a bit pessimistic, but I don't see myself doing much with my life outside of pursuing authorship. I suppose the story I am working on would vaguely fit within the realm of steampunk, although I'm not all too familiar with the "boundaries" of the genre. I am pleasantly surprised to find that the steampunk community seems teeming with fellow writers. As a personal style, I must admit I am more 'goth' than steampunk. Although, I do have a bowler hat I often wear with my ensemble. I do not cosplay, I just go out in my own style on a regular basis. It is something that regularly turns heads.
However, I am not joining up to promote myself. I am interested to learn more about the steampunk genre, and the literary elements that are involved with it. I am not sure how applicable it may be on this site, but I have also heard of another offshoot branch called "Dieselpunk" that seems very interesting to me as well.

Howdy everyone!

I'm Jonathan Fesmire, a steampunk writer (and artist), currently working on my fist steampunk novel. (Not my first novel, but first in this genre.) It's called Bodacious Creed: a Steampunk Zombie Western. You can learn more about it on my site, http://jonfesmire.com/.

In my blog, The Mostly Steampunk Blog, I interview a variety of people in the steampunk community, feature related art, and talk about the writing process. http://www.jonfesmire.com/#!blog/c1bqk

I'm a copywriter at my day job, and live near Disneyland, which is pretty sweet. I'm also a single father with an amazing 7-year-old son who loves Minecraft and technology.

Spent many a year on the Runnersworld UK forums, and through that got involved in all kinds of shenanigans- triathlon, ironman, ultra triathlon. With a rather abrupt retirement during a deca (not worth asking, the answer will be long as is the way of these ultra type events). Was instrumental in the forming of the Pirates (somewhere between a cult ironman group and bunch of buffoons).
Trained in Theatre costume making in the late 80's- 1980's to clarify for the time travellers amongst you.
Love putting those cutting skills into practice during idle moments making my own steampunk outfits.
 Was a "normal"punk? Standard punk? waaaay back so this is a natural mash up of my interests.

I could go on and on and on, and do usually.

Hello I am here in my capacity as a magician and tarot reader. I make props for magicians and have worked putting on recreations of Victorian séances. I am working on creating a steam punked theme piece of magical theatre and want to have a browse of the tactile section here for ideas.

Hello! I'm Back ;)
It's actually been a few years since I stopped visiting this forum and indulging in steampunk loveliness. I thought I'd pop over and say hell, once again.

Much love darlings x

But now i have kids and i discovered i like to build things (not on a high level but getting there)

Welcome back, lillith. I am sure you'll meet up with old friends soon :)

En, welkom, Ewoud! Ik hoop dat je reis door de wereld van steampunk een goede zal zijn.

Greetings to you all. My name is Cora and I have been interested in steampunk for a few years now, having first come across the whole, wonderful concept through an acquaintance who visited WGW and told me about 'all these non-goths who dressed up like Victorians - and some of them are as old as you ...'   Ah, thought I, just my cup of tea!
So here I am, late 50's and enjoying dressing up again. I like to make my own costumes and will happily spend hours fiddling about with anything that does not involve housework. I know very little about computers so please forgive any errors I make in protocol or technology (left to myself I still write with a fountain pen) but I am really delighted to be here.
You have to tread a fine line between avant-garde surrealism and getting yourself sectioned...

Eric Stott of Albany NY here, I cosplay as Doctor Irritation & am very much enjoying it. Outfit consists of a vintage bowler, corroded Wilson Goggles,  a howie style lab coat (which I made myself) white leather gauntlet gloves (soiled) and black lineman boots. AND of course, a bushy beard. I put this together for the Enchanted City Steampunk Fair in Troy NY- there was supposed to be a plotline involving evil inventors throwing over the rule of Queen Mab- I was supposed to snatch the crown from her head- but at the last minute it was tossed out the window, so I spent the day slinking around the street with paper bags full of candy, leering at the crowds & hissing "Fairy Droppings.....or Evil Mints..... CHOOSE ONE!"

For some reason it was a hit, and I'm now Doctor Irritation - the Evil Mints guy
Evil Mints- CHOOSE NOW!

I would ask what the gloves are soiled with but perhaps, on reflection, I don't! want to know!

Hello! My name is Addie and I love reading horror stories. I enjoy Professor Elemental and Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer. My TV show tastes include Doctor Who, Sherlock, Supernatural, and Torchwood. It would be lovely to expand my steampunk collection as I only have a couple of things. I'm currently still stuck in my education but I'm DIY-ing a pair of high heels that I have recently come into possession of. Feel free to say Hi and maybe introduce yourself as your steampunk character (if you have one.)

Greeting everyone

My wife and I have just attended our first Steampunk event and needless to say it was wonderful. It was held at the Strasburg Railroad in Strasburg, PA USA Oct 16th-18th 2015.
We have been lurking for some time on the forums and thought it was time to join up. :-)

Saros :-)

Greetings all, I'm Dave, a mature hippy/biker still rebelling and refusing to grow up in spite of my bus pass and some old bugger staring back at me when I look in a mirror. I'm delighted and surprised to find this wonderful subculture with all it's opportunity for inventiveness and creativity and no silly rules (and the music is good too). I've been to a few local events which were fun and plan on attending more, hopefully I'll remember to take some photos and post them.
it seemed like a good idea at the time

Good day! I'm Mrs Bunny, and I'm fascinated with dirigibles. I love A Conspiracy of Alchemists, am reading The Steampunk User Manual, and needing to read HP Lovecraft's works. I am currently restoring a rather old typewriter.
Have a lovely day!
Together we are adventurers of the realms!

Hello everyone! I'm Lelia and I'm an aspiring model and seamstress from the UK!
I live and breathe Victorian history and fashion and came here to find like-minded people!
I hope to be a costume designer one day and I am currently working on my first bustle dress - hoping to meet some sewing enthusiasts here too!
Overall just looking for more info on events, get-togethers and re-enactments - places to go to and wear all those amazing outfits I unfortunately can't wear in day-to-day life :(
Looking forward to meeting amazing and creative people on here :)

Hello, I am returning to steampunk after a hiatus of several years. I am a reader with a tendency to follow the will o'the wisp of intellectual curiosity into all sorts of places. My favorite steampunk "world" is that of the Leviathan series.

I was on the Steampunk Empire back in the day but it seems rather quiet over there. This is my first appearance on Brass Goggles. I'm moderately crafty, mostly a knitter with intermediate sewing skills which I hope to improve.

I'm hoping to go to a steampunk meetup in my state, Massachusetts, later this month.

Hello fellow Steamers

Woaah, where to begin. I'm new to this Forum but I've been a Steampunk since I was 28 and I'm now pushing 40 - depending on what year I'm in obviously. Quite often, when I put on my top hat and goggles and start thinking about coal powered time travel, I feel like I'm back in 1846.

Nice to meet you all

Mikey
