Steampunk weekend

At last I live somewhere here that has a winter festival - Steampunk Festival Weekend! It starts tonight with Fire and Steam.

Fire and Steam

I haven't been able to find my leather helmet*, but I have the rest of the gear I need: goggles, wig (see icon), leather cap and jacket, army jacket, pocket watch, flask with compass, and raygun. I realised I also needed a persona, like the other steampunkers here, so I'm Lucinda Augusta Throgmorton. I toyed with Henrietta Buckleton which was the magnificent name a school friend rejoiced in (she wanted to be a truck driver when she left school) but decided I'd create my own.

Other things I'm going to:
  • Tea Duelling tomorrow morning, as a competitor
  • League of Victorian Imagineers Mess Dinner, Murder Mystery and Airship Racing tomorrow night
  • Steampunk NZ Moments In Time: a series of tiny theatre pieces at the Opera House on Sunday
  • Assorted markets and demos

* Found the helmet which is good because my leather flat cap didn't fit over my wig.
