Where to start?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Uncle Arthur Jun 2, 2012. 11 Replies

I would very much like to start creating and mod-ing things to a Steampunk asthetic but there is just one question:  where do I start?  Where did you start or what do you suggest I start with?Continue

Dieselpunk?

As a fairly new Steampunk I would like to know you good people's opinion on various Steampunk 'spin offs' (if you will) such as dieselpunk, clockpunk and stitchpunk.  I would like to know your…Continue

The future of Steampunk

Here we are, happily dawdling in our fantastical and generally wondeful victorian Steampunk ways, but has anyone given any thought to the future?  We know in this guture that Steam power is not the…Continue

Rt Rev.Hammer, Archimandrite replied to Jim Screwloose's discussion Dieselpunk?
"I am getting more and more into dieselpunk by the brunt of my very nature. I am more of a fossil  fuels man than a coal and wood man. I love I-C engines... LOVE THEM and the era of Diesel punk (1920-1950)."

Uncle Arthur replied to Jim Screwloose's discussion Where to start?
"As the elderly gent said when asked about his undies. Depends. What is your interest? Start small and build on the skills you already have. Being totally mad I will give anything a try. From crochet to blacksmithing.   Find some small…"

"Look at the key-zoo-key-lele.  It is amazing and a kazoo or mini piano is a great addition."

Jim Screwloose replied to J.R.'s discussion Writing About Aether in the group The Aether Guild of Writers
"Any steampunk book should be written for the story and not the steampunk.  That's what makes a good steampunk book"

Ronin replied to Jim Screwloose's discussion Where to start?
"agreed here as well.  I only started doing the SP thing a relatively short while ago, but with an eye to little bits I would stumble across in my wanderings.  I now have a very large, heavy tub of bits, materials and parts that have…"

Sophia the Amateur Weaponsmith replied to Jim Screwloose's discussion Where to start?
"I started in thrift stores. It's terribly fun to find old vintage peices and repurpose them into something new and exciting. I agree with Earl Grey, that if you collect items that have potential to become part of a steampunk creation,…"

Earl Grey (The Mad Aristocrat) replied to Jim Screwloose's discussion Where to start?
"I don't like to mod, I simply don't. No matter how good something is if it was created by my own hands then all I see are the flaws. I think it's best to start by collecting small bobbles. Vintage items, old watch parts, anything…"

Dr. Fidelius replied to Jim Screwloose's discussion Where to start?
"The difference is in intention and use, not in anything done to the items themselves. I did not purchase my bow ties, vests, pocket watches and hats to be a Steampunk "costume," and I have done nothing to alter them from the condition they…"

Camryn Forrest replied to Jim Screwloose's discussion Where to start?
"How interesting, Dr. Fidelius. I would not have thought there was a great deal of difference between repurposing and modifying. I suppose if you repurpose carefully, you can return the item back to its original state after wearing; whilst with…"

Dr. Fidelius replied to Jim Screwloose's discussion Where to start?
"I don't know. I have never modded anything in my life. Even my outfit for Steampunk events is merely a collection of  repurposed items from my closet. I am not a tactile artist; I am a reader and story teller."
