WHAT IS THIS:
This is the web shelter of the Odd Order of Leather Coat and Umbrella-ella, herzlich willkommen.

A QUICK WORD ABOUT THE ORDER:
Мы приносим радость в каждый дом: заглядываем в окна и ржём туда.
Yes, that’s it.

HOW IT APPEARED:
First, the Organ Pipe, Black Ribbon and White Contact Lenses Society was imagined at the end of year 2009. It represented the people, united with the same… well. Let’s call it the Same Theme (the combination of German music, British movies, art + design + literature + history studies and optimistic escapism, as a lifestyle – make sure you get the point). Later, in summer of 2010, after the glorious day of pretty sudden meetings, weird dances, strange passers-by and other stuff, the slogan “NOOSPHERE LOVES U” was established. Later, thanks to our Treasurer, the name “The Order of Leather Coat and Umbrella-ella” was mentioned in Twitter. The autumn of 2010 brought first meetings, and so… here we are.

HOW IT WORKS:
Er… somehow. We’re still not sure. But from meeting to meeting we get more and more attracted to the thought, that the Order merely appeared to be an unlikely shelter for people of the same species. E.g. there’s too much hidden in speech of any member, so a non-member would need subtitles and footnotes to understand any phrase. Tons of subtitles and footnotes, mind that. Add to this the mere fact, that we do believe in fairies noosphere (or anthroposphere, call it the way you like). We’ve already proved multiple times, that the certain concentration of freaks, geeks and weirdos at one place at one time somehow influences the reality. Been there, seen that, still mostly sane, thank you.

WHY LEATHER COAT AND UMBRELLA-ELLA:
Long leather coat makes any man attractive. Don’t argue, that’s the axiom. Due to the fact that the Order is mostly female, that makes sense. As for the umbrella… do your research with these keywords: “Mycroft”, “Gatiss”, “umbrella”. And – you can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella.))

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS FOR NEW MEMBERS:
High level of education (history, languages, literature).
Advanced knowledge of British cultural heritage and German Schwarze Szene.
Basic knowledge of British English and bookish German.
Friendly sarcasm, frequently used.
Skills in arts, crafts, design and/or writing fiction.
Knowing, how to make passers-by smile and not to feel embarrassed about it.
Rich collection of various quotes from various sources (Oscar Wilde, Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle REQUIRED).
Warm feelings towards coffee.
Respect towards historical and cultural values, steampunk and cyberpunk culture included.
The peculiar ability to cry “BRAINS, BRAINS!” and still seem intelligent and contained person.
Constant curiosity.

“NOOSPHERE LOVES U”
Yeah, that’s mutual.
