I’m laughing to myself a bit. My best friend Frodo and my music minister have both said before that I was a bit Gothic.  I think they confused my eclectic style with something else. I don’t like skulls and I don’t dress mainly in black.  I absolutely hate horror movies. I wouldn’t even call myself emo.  Now, steampunk and vintage maybe. I could go for that.  I like the Victorian and punk look mixed.

But steampunk is more than fashion. It’s a fantastical world inspired by science fiction. Think of Sherlock Holmes and H.G. Wells….Jules Vern…The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen…Atlantis.  Think of everything ran by steam. Big steam powered air ships. It is a lovely world of gadgets and automatons. These dreams are possible in the virtual world and there are several steampunk sims. I’m not sure if they are all family friendly and I doubt they are. But you can get a glimpse of what they are like at the Joy of Steampunk museum. There’s even a map of all the steampunk sims.

Inside there is a Tesla coil that acts as a transporter. Beam me up Scotty ;).

It took me aboard a larger airship with many levels. Here is the massive library.
