In perhaps the most startling "what is steampunk?" article of all time, Christwire tells me that "steam sex" is going on all around us. I had no idea! (Really, I didn't, and cannot direct you to any such events. And here I thought I was au courant.)
Back in the more normal(?) world of steampunky stuff...If you're in Massachusetts around August 28th, you might want to check out the Tea Revelry in which you can see the ModVic house and much more!
Abney Park, known for their music, now has an "Airship Pirates" role-playing game on the horizon. Good idea!
Forget going a hundred years back; try the concept of clockwork spanning 10,000 years! Check out the website for more information.
Many thanks to Bunny for sending a link to the Library of Congress's set of Photochrom Travel Views, dating from the 1890s-1910s and showing the world of the Victorians in color.
And finally, Historic LOLs imagines a Comic Con steampunk costume that would definitely guarantee some elbow room...
