Here is a pic of a very nice fellow who is also a puppeteer, and whose name I forgot(If you’re out there and see this, get in touch with me!)! I met so many fantastic people at Dragon Con, and if I didn’t get your card, chances are, your name, but not your persona, slipped my mind.:( Anyway, he called me over while I was walking in the dealer room and essentially said I should do a panel or workshop at the next DC. That was very flattering and indeed got me to thinking. He and I talked about all sorts of things–moving eyes on puppets, quality of work, lip synch,etc.
As you can see, he has decked out his wheelchair in steampunk magificence. I think one of the things I like most about the steampunk genre is its elegance. The term “steampunk” denotes “works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne”. Love it.
We even saw some steampunk Ghostbusters at Dragon Con. Go ahead–Google ’em! 😀
