We are down to a week before the Clockwork Werewulf II, our steampunk ball fundraiser for the MS Society (http://midlantic-steam.livejournal.com/51358.html) so here is an update:
First, we have extended the deadline for buying tickets at the $30 price to this Thursday, the 21st!  Paypal to: ddelaney103@gmail.com
Tickets at the door are $35 (cash only), as available.
The doors will open at 7 and there will be a short lesson in vintage dancing (polkas and waltzes) at 7:30.
At 8 the dancing will start with a Grand March and follow with dancing on and off until 11.
There will be light refreshments and punch.
There will also be a photography booth where you can have "prom photos" of your steamy finery for a fee.
Hopefully there will one or two surprises (of the pleasant variety - most events can't avoid the other type and I suspect we'll have our share as well).
More details as we have them - see you in a week!

I need to be tape measured for a shirt

I have a custom-designed shirt by a Steampunk designer for a very Victorian event at the end of October, however, I honestly, sincerely, sorry to disgust the entire Steampunk community with this one, but I have to be honest, have never operated a tape measure a day in my life, and I'm supposed to provide measurements for my custom shirt. I have no idea what to do; I'm helpless as a dandy kitten. Please someone, can someone in the DC area measure me for a shirt? I need it done ASAP.

The time has come for us all to dine elegantly amidst the dead, as we are inclined to do in style and grace..

Netherlands Steampunk Dragon Show

Awesome Steampunk Dragon Show Link

Crazy right?  Why don't we see more of this stuff stateside?  There's gotta be some group of people doing an interesting steampunk show in the US.  Something like Arc Attack perhaps?
