Hope I'm posting this in the right place.

My wife and I have discovered that there are numerous steampunk, neo-victorian, dieselpunk etc. costume ball events in and around Melbourne, and we're thinking of attending one later in the year (we'll need some time to put together a couple of pulp/diesel costumes).

I was hoping that people could post about their experiences at these sorts of events, whether they had fun, and what we should expect.

Most of my favourites have already been covered, with one notable exception:

Mr. Philip Marlowe

And more recently:

The lovely cast of X-Factor, a recently revived Marvel X-Men title that got off to a cracking start, and then ran out of steam all too quickly.

That grey alien-looking robot bartender in the top left is one of the equally coolest/most terrifying things I've ever seen.

I also see this a smoking lounge, one of the few left in the free world.

Hello everyone, I'm new about town, but I have enjoyed reading this forum for some time now.

Like most people here, I'm a fan of urban fantasy, pulp adventures, dystopian cinema, speculative history, art deco, and all things -punk (particularly diesel).

I look forward to getting to know you all better.

Thank you for the warm welcome, I have been lurking this forum for a while now, and thought it might be time to jump on board.

I'll try posting a little more actively once I overcome these nerves... by the way, love The Gatehouse.

Pen & Paper Rules

At first I was thoroughly disappointed with Fallout 3, but having gone back to it a few times, I think that there just might be a good game buried beneath all that mediocrity, which gives me hope for the next installment, Fallout: New Vegas.
