The Steampunk Society of Nebraska is a group for people interested in all aspects of Steampunk. Steampunk is a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian alternate history setting, incorporating steam-powered science fiction elements.
Imagine an H.G. Wells type of world. It's time machines, submarines, airships and clockwork automatons all set in the Victorian era. It's our idea of what the past would look like if the future had happened sooner.
We love to meet new people and share our passion for Steampunk. If you're new to Steampunk and not sure where to begin, coming out to an event is a great way to get started. You can see what other people are doing to get ideas of what character you want to create, ask questions of the more experienced members of the group, and get to know us.
You don't have to be costumed to come to an event. Many of us got our start after showing up to an event in jeans and a T-shirt, meeting people and asking questions. The hardest part of Steampunk is getting past the nervousness of coming to your first event. Worse case scenario, you might get shot by a steam-powered photonic arrester (you would probably just call it a camera), but more likely you'll make some new friends and have an awesome time.
