Hi everyone, my name is James I'm a civil war reenactor (known as DeadEye by my friends so I guess that can be my SteamPunk character as well). However, I went to the ECCC 2018 yesterday and was blown away by the steampunk presence and instantly fell in love, especially since one was chatting with me about history which I'm a huge fan of. I want to know how to start this new adventure/hobby in my life, I have a couple of friends who have been doing Steampunk for years, though I want a second opinion (or more!) on where and how best to get started.
Any advice to a steampunk noob?
