I am not sure, but I think it unlikely I can attend any evening events in the near future, unfortunately. 'tis a pity, because I would very much like to attend Euchronia. Sad

I'll definitely be at Clockwork Butterfly on the 9th, and I'm aiming for Euchronia.

As to cons, this year the Armageddon Expo is on October 16th/17th and has Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann among the guests.

I'm not sure of any cons that are directly relevant. Occasionally one hears that there is a "steampunk theme" to some con-related event that's actually not steampunk in the least, and consequently the theme will be ignored. Overall steampunks are welcome (and probably expected) at events like Supanova and Manifest, but entertainment and stalls are not likely to be steampunk oriented, so you need a good deal of interest cross-over to make the most of a day.

I tried to get to Armageddon, as there was a dealer there from QLD with some cast resin steampunk guns that I may sell as an agent here in VIC.

So - as the weather warms up the markets open up, Bendigo swap meet (a bit car-ish) is in a few weeks and Whittlesea won't be far off.

Meanwhile I do miss Camberwell market, anyone feel like hitting it this Sunday 24th October?

Yeah, I could do with something to stop me playing Fallout: New Vegas ALL weekend lol. I'll be picking up a pre-order of the CE on Thursday so something during the weekend to stop me plunking down in front of the comp for 4 days straight might be a good idea.

Well it seems I may make it to Euchronia yet... got the basis for my Steampunk outfit, found a rather nice store right in the heart of Melbourne CBD called Out of the Closet, at 328b Flinders Street, just opposite Flinders Street Station. They've got a lot of nice stuff at quite reasonable prices with a mix of new and second hand items, ohh and more boots then you could shake a gyro-wrench at . Roll Eyes

So with the base getup sorted I need to start getting those bits and pieces and minor touches together... so in a few weeks time gonna start hitting Camberwell Market regularly. Can't be this week as I'm tapped out for cash and next pay I've got a class breakup do and will probably be ordering a pair of shades, which may well tap me out again. So my 1st trip will likely be in about 3 weeks time, I should have a firmer idea by end of next week what's happening.

Would love to get a few of us together and start a semi-regular Steampunk invasion of the market. Grin

Well I've been given some saturday nights off, so for the next few weeks at least, I can make it to the market. It would be nice considering I cannot get to Euchronia.

Would def like to get to the market before Euchrona. Next weekend would probably be best for me cash wise at that'll be a week my cash hits the bank, but if you guys prefer this weekend I'm sure I can scrape some together.

So are we still unsure on a date? I think we'd best get this organized quickly.

Well I'm at Camberwell market right now. I don't know if you folks knew this, but it's not running on the 19th. Just figured I'd let you know, in case you planned on going then.

Bugger!

I skipped 12th due to family committments with the intention of going on the 19th.

Oh well - hopefully I will see as many of you as possible at Euchronia!

Worry not, for if I recall correctly, the announcer chap claimed that the market would resume on boxing day. If you cannot get there then, then I am sure there are many places in Melbourne where you may purchase a cane.

I might try to make it up on the 26th, I imagine it might be quieter than usual though? So many people shut down for the holiday period...

I will be in Adelaide on the 26th, and it is generally closed that day!

So I hope to get some market picking in later that week up at Strathalbyn, a great place for tinker and costume bits.

Based on my current plans, subject to last minute changes, I will be at Camberwell on the 26th. It seems I'll be free to go to Euchronia after all, and I'll need to try and find a few things to look a little less out of place.  Smiley

I've had a rather rough and busy few months, it's about time I spent some time on steampunk and my other interests again.

I do have a ticket, buying it was something of a spur of the moment decision the other day.

The Camberwell market could be crowded. I mentioned some of my plans to my sister-in-law today, and she said that she's been hearing the market advertised on the radio as one of the few things open on Boxing Day. Alternatively, everybody could be too tired to bother.  Grin

UPDATE: For anyone planning to head down to the market I'm probably going to get there some time around 11.
