2.- Steampunk and Steamgoth
Dear James, welcoming you to our brief interviews’ series is really exciting. Not only because you are a prominent figure of the international Steampunk scene, but for your involvement in the development of Steamgoth. We have recently published a blog post about this subject entitled ‘Steamgoth in a nutshell’ and would love to go deeper into it. So let’s begin the interview!
Q.- There is no doubt that you have had an outstanding role in the development of the British Steampunk scene since its early days. You hosted the UK’s first steampunk meet-up in 2007, you have written educational articles, and even given demonstrations of Steampunk fashion and sculpture. Would you tell us a bit about the Steampunk scene in UK?
