Introduction post. (:

Well, hello all!

I guess I should post an introduction as the (so far) only other member of this community, as per ladyattercop's suggestion. ;) So, here goes.

My name's Emily (or Kai/Kailani if you prefer), and I reside in the mid-Palm Beach County area, in about Lake Worth area. I'd heard of steampunk by way of various anime conventions, but developed a specific interest pretty recently, perhaps half a year ago or so. As such, I don't have any real experience with it, but I am slowly trying to collect steamy or steam-able items, and/or craft my own, as my hope is to be able to have a steampunk costume done by the end of May this year. I also have two other close friends who are interested in steampunk, but neither of them have LiveJournals, so I suppose I'm representing all of us. ;) Hmm.. other than that, I'm 17 (soon to be 18), and a senior in highschool. I'd love for there to be some kind of all-ages steampunk meetup sometime, when there are enough people to constitute one. :3

So, other than that, I can't really think of much else. I hope many more members join this community, and I look forward to meeting many more steamy South Floridians!

<3 Emily/Kailani

Welcome to the small, intimate group. ;-)

If I may be so bold as to make some suggestions...

If you're interested in "steampunk style" music, I can't recommend The Clockwork Cabaret (clockwrkcabaret) enough. It streams live on das internets Monday nights at 11 PM, and the archived shows can be found here. Full disclosure: I'm an utter dork for this show; my and my boyfriend Ducky's contributions pop up a lot on it. You've been forewarned.

Some bands that are working in the loosely defined "genre" that you'll hear on the show include Vernian Process, Doctor Steel, The Unextraordinary Gentlemen, the Hellblinki Sextet, Lemming Maloy... (They play a lot of other steam-friendly acts such as Rasputina, Tom Waites, the Decemberists and the Gothic Archies.)

If you haven't already, check out Brass Goggles and the Brass Goggle Forums. They are the busiest steampunk info hub that I've found.

Hopefully, we'll get some new members soon. I need to get my butt in gear and do some advertising.

Thank you very much for the music suggestions. <3 I'd actually been meaning to check out some of the "steampunk style" bands, but I hadn't heard of many besides Clockwork Cabaret, The Vernian Process, Doctor Steel, and of course the ubiquitous Abney Park. ;) So thank you! I'll definitely go check out all of them. <3

And I've definitely heard of the Brass Goggles forum, but I haven't actually signed up yet. However, I will also make sure to do that in the near future. (:

It would be awesome to get some new members. If I see anyone from the area who is interested in steampunk, I'll definitely send this link their way. :3
