Introduce yourself; interests, hobbies, etc. Are you over 21? (This question is only asked as there could be convention type events or thrift store/craft outings that only allow 21 and over to attend). HOWEVER ALL AGES ARE WELCOME HERE.

I fear that I am Very over 21. However it has never stopped me. I have MS but it isn't so severe that I am in a wheel chair. I choose to live a joyous life. Hobbies are costuming, gardening (both dirt and water), I enjoy dressing up and helping others to find those things that peak their interests and imagination. At one time I belonged to the SCA and for a couple of decades I worked various Renn Faires across the country.

What kinds of costumes are you interested in creating or already own?

I think that I would enjoy making costumes that are for the traveler. Be that land, sea, or air. I also think that I might want to go a bit "wild west" with it also. Adventures seem to be where one finds them!

Have you attended any events that encourage costumes or cosplay? (conventions, LARPs, murder mysteries, etc) Do you wear costumes for any other reasons than Halloween?

I have done period pieces for my SCA costume many years ago. I still have some of my costuming from the Renn Faires, though sadly I lost my pirate gear to a storage fire. I have not LARP'd since Hawkwood was still open in Texas. (we had a wonderful site that was open for weekend productions, often including the night dwellers!) At that time I was still a costume vendor.

What do you want to get out of this meetup group? Ideas or help making a costume? Meet like minded people? Find out about cosplay events? Other?

Like minded people who are creative in their thinking and understand that we only keep ourselves to a small part of the universe. Costume is wonderful bonus in my opinion. I think that I may wish to venture to some of the cosplay events eventually.

How did you find out about this meetup group?

Introduction

Greetings, I find that I am becoming drawn into some public indulgence of my fascination with Steam Punk and the people who live there/then? I am about to turn 58 and I am happy to find a live group here in Colorado Springs.
