An obvious clue is that the YouTube titles are simple number/letter cyphers:

13.1.14.4.18.1.7.15.18.1.1110=mandragora
23.5.12.3.15.13.5-8.15.13.5.3383=welcome home
15.6.6.9.3.9.14.1.18.21.13.56155=officinarum
14.5.7.1.20.9.22.5.5.6.6.5.3=negativeeffect

Steampunks Raise the Costume Bar at Comic-Con

Thanks for the insight everyone. I appreciate it.

@Gail - your costume is stunning beyond words. Simple magical. How long did it take to make?

@ProfessorGreyshade - I gotta ask, what type of music is played at a Steampunk gathering? (I have an image of you winding up old Edison cylinder players and mixing from them).

Steampunks Raise the Costume Bar at Comic-Con

Great story Angela and as always great, great, pictures.

Noticed a lot more steampunkers this year and I'm finding more and more of it in pop culture - books (The Glass Books for the Dreameaters) comics (Girl Genius, The Squirrel Machine), movies (City of Ember, Hellboy 2, hopefully Sherlock Holmes), video games (Damnation, the unnamed Disney Steampunk game), etc...

Wondering if you had a chance to ask these steampunkers why they're attracted to this specific genre? I've always been fascinated by this.

For me, Steampunk represents a time when the future, and technology, still held all the answers. As our world has gotten more technologically advanced these answers have lead to even more questions, and there is dissatisfaction with technology, it doesn't make life better, just more complex and Steampunk is a revolt back to simpler times; a time when human ingenuity and muscle could control destiny; a time when mankind still had control of technology, when it could still be physically controlled with gears and cogs, pistons and steam as opposed to now where it is out of our control, bits of light spreading viral. Part of the personal appeal is that it also represents a time when adventure and discovery could be found in our backyard, our own planet – a civilized time when one could be exploring the depths of the ocean for the mighty Kraken but still stop for tea time no matter how wild and fantastical the situation.

Interested to hear what the real Steampunkers think. (I don’t have any brass goggles).

Thanks for the great reporting!

On Comic-Con, Transformations, and Ludacris

Yeah, I'm going to do my best to make the Steampunk meet-up this year as well. Always get distracted by something else however

Oh, of probable interest to you, and fellow Lusters...

Hammer Pants Flash Mobs Make Me Happy

Rumor of a Zombie Walk flashmob being planned for Gaslamp during Comic Con, Angela. Now zombies dancing to MC Hammer - THAT would be something worth seeing.
