"Apparently I was wrong - after a massive survey of.... three respondents, including myself, the most popular era is Edwardian, not late bustle Victorian!"

"I know it's the S-curve era, but still... that skirt must be someone with severe lordosis, and no need for room for ribs/lungs in front o_O. At this point, I'm going to drop trying to fit this and draft my own, it will be faster. Not a win…"

"So, I'm home sick with the most dreadful summer cold, and I made this little distraction: my first survey. I was wondering what everyone's favorite era is for steampunk costume designs. I started out liking the late bustle, which I think…"

"So, the 1896 walking dress is done - some more views in my gallery. I am very happy with it. Never really thought I'd have gears on a dress, but I do like the slightly art nouveau detail on the skirt.  I think it is actually within…"

"Thank you Ryan, very informative. I have no intention to attempt metal casting myself, but very much enjoyed the education. Sand - of course. Makes sense. What a wonderful material."

Ryan Grimm commented on Sair Blades's group Steampunk Stitching Association
"Plaster is often used in small-scale production or one-offs, usually when doing lost-wax casting.  Care must be used, as plaster contains a lot of the water used in forming it, and of too much remains it can instantly boil and explode when…"

Ryan Grimm commented on Sair Blades's group Steampunk Stitching Association
"The patterns, if not used too heavily, were of very hard wood, such as rock maple, some pine or other very hard woods.  Indeed, some of the wood was so hard it was machined in much the same manner as the metal parts, although more…"

The Adventures of the daring Wolfie and the less than Daring Sair on a time traveling venture to the middle ages!

Posted on July 9, 2009 at 7:43am 0 Comments

This weekend, Wolfie and I gathered a group of gypsies, pirates and princesses and ventured down though time to the Highland Renaissance Faire. We had a lovely time and happened to meet Travis there, and I highly recommend everyone go and visit while you still can because it's the end of their season already.



There were a number of merchants present who were interested in tapping into the demographic of the mid to late 1800s, and I promised I'd pass their information along if they so… Continue

I am in love with my graduation present, a shiny new Singer sewing machine.



Now my head is swimming with projects that I can accomplish in record time. I also have the tail end of an outfit I'm working on, that I'd like to have presentable by the 11th, and working on more foundation garments.



So many foundation garments. If I start now I might be done by the time a season rolls around that I'll be willing to wear a chamise, bloomers, corset, petticoat and… Continue

Happy Holidays & Happy New Year Sair!! May your holiday season be filled with brass gears & copper cogs. May your new year be filled with endless steam.

I was poking around the site and I realized your profile picture is a dead ringer for one of my current outfits.

Great minds think alike?

Lady Blades,

As I have erred in addressing you as a Sir in the past. hopefully you have forgiven me this regretable gender misnomer. It appears we share the same day for a birthday (why mine is not listed in this larger realm is something of a mystery). Hope that you have a wonderful birthday, and perhaps us Gemini's shall pair up in person at some future point.

Good to see you again. I hope that you, Wolfie, and more can make it to the Salon in October.

Glad to see that your back in steampunk circulation. Will you remain in the Queen City for a bit longer or is post graduate life taking you away soon?

Yes, every little bit helps thank you kindly!

Sair, you really should try to come out with us to the Southgate House on August 13th to see the Two Man Gentlemen Band; especially seeing you are missing our other two events this month. It's a great show and you'll love it!

Hello Miss Blades, i was wondering if you had a higher resolution format of the OSS flag that I might be able to use to make a full size one?
