The idea of an airship crew costume group is all well and good.

But what about those whose characters don't suit an airship, or perhaps you just feel that the airship crew is overdone?

I'm thinking streetgang. What do you guys think? Possible 'roles' within the gang and whether it's criminal, lawful or otherwise?

This is mostly because I know Jacobi wouldn't actually fit in on a ship Razz

Food for thought - Steampunk Team fortress 2 team?
Consists of:
Scout
Medic
Soldier
Demo man
Heavy
Sniper
Spy
Engineer
Pyro

Wink

But the streetgang idea sounds pretty good IMO.
Roles? Just performing a mind dump here about the different roles and niches within a street gang

Hierarchy:
Leader
Lieutenants
Soldiers
Wanna-bes & Initiates
Groupies & Associates

Roles (taken off knowledge of modern day criminal gangs - I don't know much bout victorian gangs tbh)
Leadership
Thug/protection money & debt collector/Fighter
Hit man/assassin
'Lady of the night' & Pimp
Dealer
Fence (seller of stolen goods)
Thieves
Look outs
Dirty/Bent cops & judges
Spy
Blackmailer (I dunno how this would visually be represented)
Surgeon
'Care bear' - esp with child gangs, someone matronly to look after em all
Yeah... I'm not the best at brainstorming

As for non criminal gangs? I don't know, I imagine a firehouse or town gaurd kinda thing, but not enough coffee to explore such things Very Happy

okay, will admit, the crew idea is a bit staid and old - everybodies' done it. these ideas could really have potential. as i don't want it to seem that i want to be in charge (which i honestly don't) I'd be glad to take whatevers' thrown m way and make a costume around that.

love the team fortress idea though - already have something that could well be described as a 'sasha' with a little work.



just need to order one from america

That sounds like a good starting point for a criminal gang. Yay for a glimmer of originality Very Happy

As much as it's my idea, unless someone else jumps for leadership, Jacobi is very much an 'eyes on the street' kind of person, as well as a saboteur of criminal dealings not under the purview of his group. Glad this has had so much interest already Very Happy
