I’d completely forgotten I’d taken these photographs of our July gathering at the delightful Flying Circus, so I thought I’d whizz them up for you. I still feel like a bit of an outsider as my literary interests and ability outweigh my dressing up ability, not to mention finances.
But luckily, other talented members of the group make of for this, and we always look a striking crew when we are doing our “Steampunk Outreach Work” – i.e. drinking in busy pubs. STeven in particular was keen to show off his spoon playing, although the photographs may be unclear in what he is actually doing.
I’m pretty sure it was spoon playing.
Thanks to all who attended, 14 in the end is a bloody good result! Really nice to meet you all, and in a decent pub at that.
Sadly we weren’t able to provide locations of illegal raves, but we did fix the meeting at the last Thursday of every month.
I still want us to build rockets though! Rockets rockets rockets.
Came across this crazily laden bicycle chained up outside the library.
It appears to be sporting a desk fan as a propeller, a scanner, a blade server on the back pannier rack, a spare wheel, and various smaller gizmos and plastic bags stuffed in the basket.
Who drives this insane velocipede? An out if work peripatetic network engineer? Someone who scans on the move? An alien in disguise who gets so hot in our climate they need a fan on a bicycle even in winter?
Or is the fan a propeller, designed to increase the speed of a bike, driven by the power from a scanner converted into a solar panel?
It looks as though whatever the case, it will be tricky to handle.
