Steampunk in New Orleans, the Colorado Chrononauts, and an intriguing offer...


Good Day!  Wanted to take a moment to highlight two extraordinary groups in the Steamlands, starting with the Steampunk American, a New Orleans based Steampunk group from the Steampunk Capital of the South (as per the Tribune's survey).  As their introduction on the Steampunk Empire states...

"New Orleans is a truly Victorian city in America. The ships still run on steam & the Absinthe flows like water. As 1 of the last bastions of the civilized world, citizens smoke tobacco in the taverns & openly drink in the glow of the gas streetlights!"

They have a very well done website (through an organization called Wix - apparently a free web-building site), plenty of photos of their adventures in the Crescent City, and will be part of the New Orleans Comic Con, during January 29th and 30th!  To learn more about the Steampunk Americans, please turn to...


If one happens to be interested in Steampunk a bit further west, then a visit to the Colorado Chrononauts is a must!  The Colorado Chrononauts have been (XX) in the Rocky Mountains since early 2009, and their locale is a repository of intersting and unique Steampunk finds - many of which have gone unreported by most Steampunk news sources (including this yellow rag)!  From images of the impressive Visual Effect Society Award (The Melies trophy) to impressive local artisan, such as The Gold Bug, a company which designs impressive Steampunk Jewelry, a visit to the Colorado Chrononauts is most certaly time well spent!  To spend your time there, please follow the link to: http://chrononauts.org/CO/



Regarding that previously mentioned intriguing offer... Miss R. Gallowglass informed me that she owns the domain space for chrononauts.org, and is interested in hosting regional groups via the domain, for free, as a third-level domain (for example omaha.chrononauts.org or NESteamSociety.chrononauts.org, ect..).  If your regional Steampunk organization is intersted in this generous offer, please do contact Miss Gallowglass directly for more details, at she [at] chrononauts [dot] org!
