bones870: Old enough to know better: And strangely enough, everyone is walking around, interacting, and having fun. As far as I can tell that's the whole point of it.Sorry to be a Debbie DownerEnjoy the Halcyon days...Coming from various subcultures and being involved in them at one point or another, you see these things. I used to work at various Punk, Goth, Industrial and Rave clubs in NYC back in the early '90s. I skateboarded in the 80's and was a straight-edge hardcore punk. I saw most of them from the beginnings to the decline...I fully remember the Halcyon days and they were great but the pettiness always finds a way in all of the "scenes".You missed the point....the goggles on the hat are a CLICHE, just like amohawk.....they are the death knell of STEAMPUNK!/You learn a lot working the door at club...
2wolves: willfullyobscure: WhoopAssWayne: What are the classic/seminal steampunk novels? I've read The Difference Engine but it was kind of meh. The Diamond Age is somewhat in the same vein, but not really steampunk.Kipling invented the genre. then HG Welles, and the modern era started with the Lord D'arcy series.No love for Verne? 80 Days Around the World is gentleman's steam punk adventure at it's best.
MegaUngawa: Astra: Kirby Muxloe: [24.media.tumblr.com image 467x686]Oh look, a repainted Nerf Maverick.The repainted Nerf Maverick is about as cliche' as the goggles on the hat (which are gradually disappearing, BTW).

vernonFL: A friend of mine is in one of the bands that played at that Steampunk convention. The band is called the Clockwork Dolls.
BolshyGreatYarblocks: As with the goths, Steampunk women are fat, amirite?
