There are many aspects of Steampunk that are appealing. I have always been a cosplayer at heart, having done costumes in a variety of other genres (Star Wars, Anime, Harry Potter, Renaissance festivals, etc.) In "the real world" I am an engineer, with a fascination of retro technologies. I have interests in Tesla's electrical inventions, and early computational systems like Babbage's 19th century Difference Engine. I have a fondness for hydrogen to the point that I am building an electrolysis device to isolate hydrogen gas, with the intent of eventually making a functional model airship (while being mindful to not blow up or electrocute myself.) My wife, the intrepid Miss Scarlet Kerrigan Rose Abernathy, is equally interested in the Steampunk world and will be registering herself with the Society in short order.
Ideally, every week. Realistically, once a month. Miss Scarlet and I have two dear children who require a good amount of our time and attention, and would need babysitting for us to attend most events.
Greetings fellow members of this esteemed society. I am Dr. Hieronymus Perceval Landsgrave, Psychologist and professional investigator, specializing in the Occult and ancient religions. This is my first venture into the realms of Steampunk.
