my boyfriend is...preppyish....
laverna how would you describe Kyle?

Wow a Preppy guy dating a Gypsy-ish Steamer...named Kyle. That's a bit freaky chika.

Mine is pretty Preppy and his last name is Kyle (dun dun duuuuuunnnn)

Im one of the lucky ones who's significant other is also steampunk and is even a member here on the boards. Certainly saves me the effort of explaining my fixation with antique arms, and brass objects of the practical variety (as in not those silly brass horses etc that seem to fill every charity shop, antiques store, and traditional pub)

That is true! I spend a lot of time explaining things LOL!

The quickest way to do it is to use the spoiler button its the one just infront of the list one under the black A, just highlight the text you want to put in a spoiler and push the button. If you press the quote button for this post you will see how it works on your photo (which is quite beautiful I must say)

Aww thank you Mrs. Sullivan, I am pretty darn happy! He really didn't want to be in the picture, but I HAD to get him in one. I was dressed like that when he met me-I think it shows off our differences very well! Hahah!

My wife does like the all the hardwood decoration, and furniture, but...just doesn't get the rest of it. 

Fortunately for me, she new that I was only slightly saner then an emu on acid; when she married me.

oh yes Mr. Albrecht, that is a nice picture. I love your wife's robe, too.

and as for Mr. Johnny Payphone, that's also an awesome pic. I'm guessing that's you and your lover? not many couples can pull that kind of thing off, but you two manage it well.

My girlfriend is indeed a steampunk.  You may know her as the Baroness Augustina Brock.  Not only do we both post on the forum, dress steampunk, and have dreams of commandeering the Good Year blimp (long story), but we also both like the same SP sub genre.  Good times...

My boyfriend is not particularly into steampunk, but he's got no problem with it, either. He's more into medieval stuff, which is fine because I like that as well, and his cloaks are comfy. ^_Q

I would probably enjoy even a non-Steampunk Other, at this point :)

Mr. Right is more of a closet steampunk :D He likes Jules Verne, HG Wells and is currently reading through my complete Sherlock Holmes collection (mostly in the annotated one-volume edition = a 3kg book). Also, he does LARP of the medieval/fantasy kind and he is ok with the fact that I have more tools and hardware than he does (although we sometimes argue over what he calls "rusty things" ("I'll just take the junk downstairs." "Nooooooo!")).  ;D So there's definately hope I'd say.

My husband is very much a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, which is a tragedy as he looks fantastically dashing in a suit.

My Beloved is not a steampunk, but is rather astonishingly comfortable with what I get up to. Given that he's a doctor he seems quite OK with the dangerous sports, to collections of odd creatures in jars and tanks and so on. Plus he has lots of experience with my historical reinactments - particularly if it gets him lots of historical food and music.  :D

I think that he thinks steampunk is relatively "safe" compared to what else I get up to, and he knows that I've had real Uni training in high voltage, chemicals and lasers.

I think my Mum is more into it all - she is an archaeologist and kilt wearing maniac. Much more her style!

*kicks thread into life*

ello!

the captain and I are both "steampunks", although my interest is more in the historical fashions and living, and his is more in the driving of the steam tractors and poncing around in antique glasses. but I cringe whenever I hear the word steampunk, and often wind up in petty elitist arguments over what is and is not steampunk, so i've taken to calling myself a creative anachronist, and I'm leaving it at that.

(we also have semi-formed plans to recreate a semi-victorian lifestyle in a cottage we've been looking at, complete with old cooking/farming equipment and back-busting manual labour! hooray! on the upside, we are both mostly vegetarians, so that means we don't have to delegate the task of slaughtering pigs/chickens/geese/rabbits)

Although for reasons I can't understand you don't share my desire to spend weekends under canvas pretending to be a Saxon.

My captor is the one who introduced me to Steampunk. There was really no "shift," per se, because in our own ways we already were. This just gave me the name. I was Punkergoth with 19th century leanings, and he. . . well, his entire family are tinkering-mad-scientist-hippies. They're proudly descended from some great pirate, and a couple of them act just like Captain Jack Sparrow. He adds the aesthetic to his pre-existing Goth and Tinker, and winds up crawling amongst engines and wires dressed in dust and T-shirts. I shudder to think what will happen when I finally manage to fit a dress shirt to him. He's not on this forum, though I keep trying to convince him. He's too busy. One of these days, though, Mr. Veneficus Heterocephalus (Spell-casting Naked Mole Rat) will be enticed to the online realm.

I don't have many friends who admit to Steampunkishness, but my French Lit Prof is THERE, whether he admits it or not.
