What is your interest in Steampunk?

I have recently realized that I've been drawn to Steampunk without knowing it for a long time. Now that I know it exists I am eager to explore it more with others, to have a chance to dress in period (s) , and have a creative outlet to meet people. I have a serious job and want a place where I can be my imaginative self -- progressive, old-fashioned, playful, conversational, philosophical, welcoming of diversity, and finding common ground. I love the Victorian and Steampunk aesthetic which incorporates the beautiful lines of the past with the imagined lines of a future that never happened. I like the notion of alternate histories and concurrent timelines. I love the creativity that Steampunk artists put into their work and that Steampunk inventors put into their creations. I want to find people who also appreciate this since there is no one else around me with this interest.


I'm a science fiction/fantasy fan (small f), love Steampunk. Victoriana, Shelley, Verne, Sherlock Holmes, Wells, Warehouse 13, philosophy, Renn Faire, films, folks with open minds and kind hearts. Happily married mom of three grown kids. Progressive.
