Drama as Steampunk

Drama as Steampunk I define as PUBLIC dramatic skits, performances, videos, or any other performance art where the person interacts with others in character as though they actually were their Steampunk personae.  In order to do this effectively they need to create extensive fictional backgrounds, personality development, and current world events as well as personalities, equipment, and weapon/vehicle statistics for everything in their world.  Talk about fiction writing!  Dramatic enactment, if done well, requires significant fictional writing before you actually even design the ensemble or equipment you wear and carry.  Of course some of this may be done in reverse where equipment is obtained, then given fictional attributes that seem to match it's appearance, but the point still remains that fiction is essential to good dramatic roleplay.
