Steampunk Hands Across The World – The People

By Madeleine Holly-Rosing


What is my favorite thing about steampunk? The people.

My introduction to the steampunk community was at a small convention called Gaslight Gathering in San Diego over three years ago. A lovely woman by the name of Anastasia Hunter took me under her wing and introduced me to this new-fangled world. She was gracious and supportive.

As I learned more about the community, I happened upon Kevin Steil (that’s you, big guy) and his website the Airship Ambassador. SteamCon was not far off and I decided to go, but I needed help in the clothing department. So I ran down to Clockwork Couture/Geeky Teas in Burbank where Donna Ricci’s expertise and enthusiasm made me look terrific.


That’s when I knew I had to attend Clockwork Alchemy in San Jose. It was there that I met the fabulous Thena MacArthur and the stalwart band of authors who included, but were not limited to, Sharon Cathcart, Anthony Francis, Elizabeth Watasin, Penelope Dreadfulle and Emi Thompson, who made a newbie feel right at home. And I cannot possibly forget the awesome Dr. Brassy Steamington who graced my panels.

And that was my first year on the convention circuit. It only got better the second year. And the third.

I can’t wait to see who I meet this year.
