What Steampunk Means To Me by Louise Peacock

I have only been involved with Steampunk since early 2014.

This involvement was thanks to a wonderful artisan/Steampunk advocate called  Anne Marie Schlodder. She along with her silversmith daughter, Victoria, encouraged us to participate.

Thanks to her we showed up at an event called Steam On Queen, a local event in Toronto, celebrating all things Steam punk. this event was the Brainchild of the wonderful Adam Smith, seen in the midst of the event.

I quickly saw the huge potential for dressing up and dove into it full-tilt-boogie-band. I even got my husband to get involved.

Once of the nicest parts of getting involved is some of the super people I have met.  Lord Christoper MacRaven and his lovely lady seen next.

The Pennys,  Nerissa from SteamGummi designs, Archie from Mental Floss, this list goes on.

I’ll close with glimpses of the great event that was Steam on Queen, sadly not to be repeated.
