This is not exactly steampunk related, so bare with me. As I'm sure you're all aware, a 8.9 earthquake has struck Japan, followed shortly by a devastating tsunami. In light of this, I have decided to put one of my masks up in a one day auction on Ebay. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross for the relief effort.
So if you've been considering donating, or like my work,…Continue

Hello I'm Zombifaction, I'm here to do a bit of research for a thought I had. I hope to turn it into some kind of visual media, but first I have to see what the steam punk style truly is. I need to see the clothes the landscapes the technology and the attitude. Hopefully a friend of mine will help with art but if not who knows maybe someone here will help. But please show me all you got.
I hope to find some interesting things here.

Good day to you old friend. I hope this finds you well.
This note finds me awake and at home quite early in the morn. My health is as good as can be expected lately, although some of my faculties can be somewhat tender at times, reminding me of the various injuries sustained whilst serving in the Army or with the force. I must say that my recent employ hasn't aided much in recovery, and I fear that the mild ailments should only continue to be aggravated by the physicality of my…Continue

Dear Friends and Associates of the Aether!
I have been hearing HORRIBLE murmurs about the price of cotton EXPLODING in coming months!
It is being said that due to calamatous weather and other factors that cotton in the short term ( over a 3 month period) could rise by eighty per cent per pound!
Cotton being one of the all time greats when it comes to cloth and textiles will soon cost as much as silk!
Prices are the highest that they have been in…Continue

Ooh, I have a blog in here? Sweet. I shall make use of it.
I am Jennifer, proprietess of Steampunk Sweethearts on etsy, purveyor of gaslamp fantasy jewelry, odd items that seemed like a good idea at the time, and vintage or antique finds I stumble across. I started making my own jewelry because I love the steampunk aesthetic/culture, but wanted something a little more...delicate and feminine. I…Continue

Honestly. I couldn't help myself. The resurgence of steampunk costuming controversy made me do it.

"And here one must not that hatred is acquired just as much by means of good actions as by bad ones; and so, as I said above, if a prince wishes to maintain the state, he is often obliged not to be good; because whenever that group which you believe you need to support you is corrupted, whether it be the common people, the soldiers, or the nobles, it is to your advantage to follow their inclinations in order to satisfy them; and then good actions are your enemy."

I can not even begin to express how much of a good time I had at WWWC this past weekend. Met so many wonderful people and of those more than a few I am honored to call friends now. I can not say what stuck in my mind the most as to try to do such would be not unlike playing Jenga while plastered on cheap tequila.
So all of you steampunks, who attended and worked there, preformed there, etc, you should all be commended in making one of the most wonderful events I have been too…Continue

During the aftermath of the Industrial Revolution, causes for gender equality were being raised by men and women throughout the world. In 1909, under the helm of the Socialist Party of America, the first National Women's Day was celebrated in the United States on February 28th. In 1910, at the International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen, influential German socialist politician Clara Zetkin proposed that a day be…Continue

The sun was setting over the jungle canopy as the Freedom of Africa came to a slow stop . We had arrived at the location where the entrance to the underground river should be located according to the ancient map and amulet. Capt. Fahiz and his crew set about making quick work of the task of mooring the ramshackle craft in a stationary resting place above the trees. Below us the sounds of strange birds, monkeys and other exotic jungle dwellers filled our ears with a deafening cacophony of…Continue
