Ah, Seattle- home to Starbuck's, the Space Needle, and 5th Avenue Theatre. But just below the tourist-attraction surface is a vibrant steampunk hub. Let's come together as Seattle punks and celebrate it together!See More

Profile Information

Introduction
I make leather top hats and collect old stuff.

You can find my stuff on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ramonpiper and Ebay: http://stores.ebay.com/oldtimeyhats .

I also play bagpipes, accordions, concertinas, and other free reed instruments, with competence, mind you.

I'm less Steampunk, actually more of a "Tallow-lasher," a sub-group of my own name, referring to someone who used to grease leather hoses to keep them waterproof and supple, as in Brunel's Atmospheric Railway. That means I'm working class and have no need of titles such as "Sir" or "Lord" preferring my occupation and surname. I eschew goggles and favor leather aprons and hobnailed boots and draw sartorial inspiration from the severe austerity of occupational daguerreotypes. So there.
