Ladies and gentlemen, it is time once again for the Annual Time Travel Picnic, the oldest & Longest running annual steampunk meet up event in the world. Join us Saturday, August 7th, on Governor's Island in New York City for this year's adventure! We will be meeting at 1:30pm at the Island and will enjoy the festivities until closing.

In keeping with our time travel theme, we will be leaving the rustic charm of the Renaissance behind and travel right into the middle of America's Civil War! For the many of you who enjoy the steampunk/Victorian aesthetic, this will be a happy return to the modern world (circa 1863 of course). Come dressed in your finest and enjoy the exciting Civil War Weekend and the Time Travel Picnic.

We will meet around 1:30 at Pier 101 on the island

Dieselpunks Interview - GD Falksen

GD Falksen interview

Dieselpunks Interview - GD Falksen, steampunk, author, and historian
The Strange Case of Mr. Falksen

If you haven't heard of GD, you've certainly seen him around. Whether it be on MTV, or at DragonCon, SalonCon, the Time Travel Picnic or dozens of other events, GD is the unofficial spokesperson for all things steampunk.

This gifted writer can normally be seen at Tor, but today, GD is spending a little time with Dieselpunks to share his views on how we've grown as a subculture and where Steampunk will be in the future.

Pictures!

Even though jaborwhalky scooped me on posting my group shot to steamfashion, I wanted to post my photos here too. I have some more to upload, and I also plan to clean up the group photo I posted to balance out the lighting on everyone. I will leave a note here when I do that.
