Hi, this is Königs Wusterhausen my home in Germany. It is very nice here but I am drawn into the great world beyond. I would like to learn about new cultures and customs, and travel around as many countries as possible. I hope that my journey will begin soon. :)

Today it has finally come, I come to my first trip. It goes to Oklahoma City.
I am very nervous and I am excited for new acquaintances.

If you don't know what Steampunk is, you are missing a lot of fun! It's very community related. I highly recommend checking out Airship Isabella's website and forums.

Cpt. Cedric Greyhawk Whittaker of Airship Isabella and Ambassador Mordecai Hale posed in a professional photo with me and the other Toyvoyagers who went to the Expo with me. Airship Isabella are wonderful people! They make and sell really awesome Steampunk items. Not only that, but they share resources! They are more than happy to answer questions, give you advice in making your own stuff, and love seeing what you can make. They take commissions on a lot of various Steampunk related things.

The rest of the photos are of me (and the other TV's) at the convention. Cpt Amelia of Airship Horizons (our host) took the other photos.

Look at all these amazing Steampunk ornaments we've been making! They are amazing. We're going to be making bigger ornaments and some Steampunk Snowmen softies too! The xmas tree will will look so cool, but it won't go up until after Thanksgiving Day (an American Holiday).

We went to Hooters to eat and watch UFC (Ultimate fighting Championship). We didn't get many photos because it was hectic but fun. Turned out there was an OU game (Oklahoma University Football) and they weren't showing UFC, so we paid for our appetizers and went to Buffalo Wild Wings. We had to wait an hour or more for a table because it was already packed. Despite this, we had a great time.

When we got home, we made more Steampunk ornaments out of polymer clay and paint. It was a lot of fun making them. We've made a lot of ornaments, all handmade, and we have more to make (it's a full sized christmas tree). This Thursday is Thanksgiving and we'll be putting up the xmas tree this weekend!

So, I learned that a long time ago, Pilgrims came to America, from England, to get away from religious persecution and the Native Americans helped them survive on the land and taught them many things. Religious persecution is the mistreatment of people because of their religious beliefs. The Pilgrims actually thought that this was India, which is why they called the Native Americans "Indians". There was a big feast that the Pilgrims and "Indians" had together in late November, but no one knows exactly when, so now Thanksgiving Day is on the fourth Thursday in November.

There was more history in this time including the Native Americans being forced off their land. Oklahoma is part of the Trail of Tears where Native Americans were marched into reservations and many of them died. This part of the history is quite terrible and sad. However, they still celebrate Thanksgiving Day in America and it's all about giving thanks for what you have and being with your family.

I got to enjoy Thanksgiving with my Host Amelia and several other TV's and we all helped out with making dinner...

Jinny's Masataku
Mischa's Paul
Katie's Charles
MamiTig's Myka
Xadrian's Drashuven
Mellialida's Mr.Shawn
GubbL's Kalso
Klubwerks (my host) Toki, Mulvane (Mully), Fleece, and Chico

We did not put up all of the ornaments because we all agreed that more of the ornaments were too dark to see as well as they would show on a white tree! Our host says that if the white tree turns out good enough she may donate the current tree. It will be fun decorating another tree.

I'm getting presents under the xmas tree. Only one is for me so far, but Toki told me that she is making me a present too!

Posted Dec 10, 2011, 2:27 am
I met some my host's toys today. I met Thai, the big yellow duck. He's a big gentle giant and he's adorable. I also met Lily the frog, Holiday (the bigger snowman), and Starshine (the smaller snowman).

Amelia (my host) also showed me two special ornamrnts, a koi and sushi xmas ornament. They were sparkly and pretty.

Posted Dec 11, 2011, 7:32 pm
My host got a few small xmas gifts today which included a ducky bath toy. He's been named German, after all the German TV's she had visiting.

Also, she handmade a new tiny toy last night. His name is Mr. Poley and he's a little polar bear. He's my size!

Some toy adoptions arrived today! We got to meet Percival Hippo, Waddle Penguin, and Stretchy Ostrich. Our hosts employers gave us a glass bottle of candy too! We enjoyed being at work with our host today!

Hi Mom!!

We decorated the Christmas Tree today. My host Amelia made all the ornaments herself, with the exception of a few sentimental ornaments. Tannen the Bedtime Bear ornament is one of the toys that lives here. I got to meet all of the xmas toys that live here too.

I posed in Jane's Hat, from the tv series Firefly. Then I helped make some treats called "Puppy Food". It's not really puppy food and it's really yummy!

The household decided to open presents early this year. They wanted plenty of time to play with thier presents over the weekend. Everyone in the house caught a terrible cold, so presents made everyone feel better too.

So, we toyvoyagers decided to open presents too! My host made me a such a lovely red dress with a pretty white collar, and a pastel scarf. I love my dress the best because it's so pretty! Thank for my gifts!

Oh, and it's supposed to snow this weekend. We'll see!

Mr. Shawn and I went for some Mexican food at Los Vasqueros. We ate some tasty queso and a Chile Relleno dinner. We had a nice time.

I finally got around to adding a little something of my own to the TV Memory Book. I met two TV's Sookie (penguin) and Sveni (moose). We really didn't do much today. I should be doing something more fun this upcoming weekend.

We played with a bunch of Steampunk stuff and we had fun! They have a more western style steampunk here in Oklahoma. They like pistols, flintlocks, and the worn "old" look... poker cards... that sort of thing. It's pretty neat!

Posted Mar 2, 2012, 7:17 pm
I got to have some dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings. I ate some mini chili dogs and fries. It wasn't too bad!

I had fun celebrating Saint Patrick's Day in Bricktown (down town) Oklahoma City. My host says it's an Irish Holiday that they celebrate with getting drunk, listening to Irish music, and lots of green things and Irish flags.

We ate at Jazmo's, a cajun restaraunt - Black Magic Catfish! Oooo weee! It's blackened catfish topped with etouffee on top of dirty rice, and a side of fried ocra. It is SO GOOD! As a treat, we stopped into the Candy Factory. It's not really a factory, but they have a ton of candy there.

Then, we went for a long walk around the different lots where there was live music and green beer. We also enjoyed the wind blowing off the river. The white stuff in the water are petals from the peach trees. The peach trees smell awful, but they are so pretty!

We went to a Steampunk event called Nightmare Machine. It was held in Jefferson Texas, which they say is the most haunted town in Texas. We were sitting in the vistors center with a frame photo on the wall fell and broke, and then a bunch of people walked in saying that the Steam Train derailed and they all had to walk back. Thankfully no one was hurt... unfortunately we didn't get to ride the train.

Still we had a lot of fun. We went camping out by a swamp lake at the Cypress Bayou RV Camp Grounds. It was so pretty out there! We even visited some of the stores. The town itself was pretty neat because it is one of the oldest towns in Texas.

And it was moth season, because there were a lot of moth caterpillars crawling around. We brought two of them home only to find a third stow away in a bag. One of them already made himself into a cocoon (we named him Jefferson). I can't wait to see what kind of moth he ends up being!

I wanted to let you know that I'm okay!

I just wanted to show you the storm that we had. We're in "Tornado Alley" and it's Tornado season right now. There was a very dangerous "super cell" storm that passed through Oklahoma this weekend. It's been all over the news. There were several dangerous tornadoes that killed 5 people (3 were children) and injured 29 others. As exciting and beautiful tornadoes are, they are deadly and very scarey!

Don't worry, we are okay in our area of Oklahoma. The winds got really strong out, but luckily the majority of the storm went Northwest of us.

I had a fun time at Aetherfest - a Steampunk Convention. The St. Anthony hotel was so beautiful! It was built in the 1880's in San Antonio, TX. We even walked down to the Alamo! This was were Texas fought the Mexican Rebels and won, despite impossible odds. Such brave and strong soldiers! You can read more about it here:

The other TV's in the photos are Toki (my hosts' bunny), Myka (panda from Kansas), and Mr. Shawn (sheep from Germany). Mr. Shawn may end up adopted by my host. His mentor has been missing for a long time and several toys have been lost with her, including my hosts' toy kitty, Bo. Mr. Shawn misses his mentor and maybe one day she'll come back - but he's very well loved with his host. I think Mr. Shawn will be just fine.

Yesterday's Annular (ring) Solar Eclipse had a Ring Of Fire! This doesn't always happen and the next one won't happen again for another decade or more. The Ring Of Fire is when the moon is directly infront of the sun creating a black hole with a thin ring of light (fire) peeking around the edges of the moon. There are also crescent shaped shadows under trees too!

We got to see the very beginning, but that was it. The clouds covered the sun. We had a lot of storms that day. But we still had a lot of fun outside and taking photos. Then when we got back inside, we watched a live stream of the eclipse.

The other TV's and I helped our host write an article about taking photos for and it turned out pretty good! She's hoping this will be useful to other hosts. More than anything, it was just good fun. As part of the project, we had lunch at a diner called Freddy's and then stopped to smell the flowers. Here are the photos we took while getting photos prepared for the article... but only the really good ones. You can see the article here: Article

We took the bus down to Bricktown (downtown Oklahoma city). First we had lunch at La Luna's mexican restaurant. I had yummy Chile Relleno and some chips with queso and salsa. There was a lot of neat decore on the walls, and the staff was really nice. Then we went to the Myriad Botanical Gardens. It was wet and hot and a lot of walking... but it was so pretty there! They had waterfalls, exotic flowers, and some cactus.

I am not in every single photo from the Gardens, because I really wanted you to get a good look at some of the plants and scenery. It was SO BEAUTIFUL in there!

Stormy Weather!

The next US Holiday is Independence Day (4th of July). Everyone wears the colors of the American Flag - red, white, and blue. There's fireworks and general festivities. We made me a white band with a red, white, and blue stars on it.

How do you like it?

I went to Soonercon, which is a local scifi and comic convention here in Oklahoma. I was busy helping my host sell toys at their vending table, but I did take time away to meet Peter Beagle, the author of The Last Unicorn!

Posted Jun 30, 2012, 7:58 pm
There's a Vietnamese restaurant across the street from where my host lives. They have a lot of noodle soups and seafoods. It was very tasty.

Posted Jul 28, 2012, 2:52 am
I went to Ama-con in Amarillo Texas. It was there first comic convention and it was only one day, but was fantastic. My hosts were there as Airship Horizons, a steampunk crew, selling handmade toys, modified nerf guns, and some leather stuff. They sold a lot of merchandise! It was a lot of fun!

Posted Aug 31, 2012, 6:07 pm
We tried to view the Transit of Venus but it was too cloudy outside.

Posted Aug 31, 2012, 6:26 pm
We went to Arklatex, a comic convention in Texarkana Texas. It was a rather small convention, but it was fun! And we're going to another convention, an Anime convention, on the 1st too!

Posted Aug 31, 2012, 7:04 pm
It's Toki's Birthday today!! We helped make her some cute birthday accessories. Then we enjoyed thai food for dinner. We had the pork pad thai and it was really good.

We got mini red velvet cupcakes. Instead of candles, we put two lollipops in her cupcake, because she's two years old now! After the lollipops, we also had some strawberries!

We went to AnimeFest in Dallas, TX and we had a blast!!! <3

We went to the Sky Commodore's Autumn Masquerade Ball! It is a Steampunk ball.

I got a new dress just for the ball!
I got this lovely scarf to wear to the ball!

The line to get inside took 45 minutes! It was a huge line. We didn't expect it to be a packed as it was. We got to see Marquis Of Vaudeville and steam Powered Giraffe perform. A group called the Circus Freaks were performing out in the crowd all night too. The Ball was held at the Dallas Flight Museum. We got to see a bunch of really cool airplane stuff! It was only one night, but it was so much fun!

Then on the way home the next morning, we stopped by a small diner called Original Market Diner. Even though the diner was packed, it only took 15 minutes to get a seat. The food was SO GOOD! My hosts wish they had one in Oklahoma. They had some cute decore that was my size!

I helped Toki finish building and decorating her house today!

Posted Sep 29, 2012, 7:39 am
We ate at a taco place called Fuzzy's. I tried the tempura shrimp tacos with cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, feta cheese, and garlic sauce. It sounds weird, and it is weird, but it was surprisingly tastey! The feta was finely chopped and the garlic sauce was just subtle enough. Very good. I also had a peach frozen marguerita.

Then we went for a ride on the river boat. Everything was so pretty, but it was too dark to take very many good photoes.

After all that, we saw the movie Loopers. It was a nice night!

Posted Oct 13, 2012, 10:08 pm
I went to the local Steampunk convention called Octopodicon. It was fun!

Posted Oct 25, 2012, 6:42 pm
I helped put up Halloween decorations on Toki's house. It looks pretty good! I also tried on some Halloween hats!

Posted Oct 25, 2012, 6:43 pm
We held a TV memorial for KCrawfish who passed away. We are all wearing pink flowers for Breast Cancer Awareness. Also, Dulac the Tarantula hangs out at work with our host during Halloween and he made a lovely pink flower memorial wreath for Kate too. We will miss you Kate! Our love and best wishes to all of your family!
