Oh dear, I thought I'd already posted this. Oops.
It comes from a conversation that came up at one of the Steampunk panels at Another Anime Con in Nashua, NH. There was a comment that people tend to pick the same character types when creating steampunk personas: air pirates, mechanics, adventurers, etc. Where were the steampunk domestics, librarians, and stay-at-home dads?
Or in my case, where are the steampunk hipster skateboarders?
Fun fact, when the bicycle first became popular in Victorian England women couldn't ride them in skirts, but they wore wide, floppy bloomers. For Modesty.
