All right, I’m in no way connected to steampunk stuff (although I have read a few of the authors). Albert was talking about the French postcards of the future I posted a few months ago, and I ran across this in FB. It looks like it’s happening this very weekend.

Now, I don’t even know this person, to be linking to their pictures in FB, but what I find so very intriguing is the coded uniformity of the costumes. Note the special goggles – steampunk is all about visions of an alternate future, usually starting from an actual historical past. Note the bullets – dangerous stuff, exploring new worlds.
