A Compendium of Steampunk Moving Pictures

My Favorite Steampunk Moving Pictures



Of course, I know what I consider to be Steampunk/Dieselpunk may not be by others, but I do know that The Wild, Wild West has been featured in a Steampunk book compendium. I also know that both Tai Chi movies are Asian Steampunk, in this case, Chinese. I highly recommend those on both the Animated and Live Action lists, though the two on my third list are maybes. I really love Edgar Rice Burroughs and have read all of the…

Interwebs Posting Manners - Pretty is as Pretty Does

... About putting things on the interwebs....think, dear friends, before you touch that keyboard. Then stop and think again, before you hit that "send" icon.  I say this in all seriousness, because  as many celebrities have learned to their detriment, your words can come back to haunt you even decades…

New costume in the works

Working on a Renaissance Steampunk (I've also heard clockpunk thrown around regarding Renaissance era) costume with a Doctor Who theme. For this, I'm not trying to do an incarnation of any of the doctors, but my own renegade Time Lord. At the moment, my biggest issue is just figuring out how to adequately combine renaissance and steampunk without going too heavy one way or the other. I -have- a Tudor style undergarment pattern, so my thoughts are to make the shift and corset with possibly a…

Pounds, Shillings, and Pence: The Socio-economics of Steampunk

Most people over 50 know, and many readers of Steampunk (or Agatha Christie) have learned from a dictionary, that in the glory days of Steam and Empire, the pound was divided into 20 shillings, and the shilling into 12 pence, for 240 pence to the pound. But what did people actually have in their pockets? What was it worth? How much of it did they need? Knowing the answers to these questions, even in general terms, helps to establish both the accuracy of historical (and alt-historical) fiction,… Continue

Finding Freedom *Prolog*

Finding Freedom

Prolog

London, England, White Chapel District

1917

The lingering night seems to hold the sunrise at bay over the slumbering city of London. Fog shrouds the city in a wet cloak, seeming to stifle the life in the once-bustling metropolis. It swirls through the streets as if it were alive, curling down each and every ally, seeping along the ground, pooling near doors, sliding through open windows like a thief in the night. The smell of the Thames, of…

Steampunk Answering Machine?

Picture this scenario:

Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell collaborating in creating the first functional answering machine some 80 years before it became commercially successful.

Both the telephone and the phonograph were invented within a year of each other (1876-1877), so the basic technology was established in the Victorian age, which we all crave. Edison later on even suggested that his phonograph could be used as an answering machine. However, back then there was no…

Prime Ministers Can Be Steampunkers Too

For those of you of a certain age, Margaret (Roberts) Thatcher passed away 8 April 2013 and remains a well-known PM up there with Gladstone, Disraeli and others of the UK.  In her way, she was steampunk in her anachronistic “modern” politics of looking forward and backward at the same time and even had a political term coined “Thatcherism”.  I did a little reading and was surprised to find she was a research chemist before she was a barrister, and later turned to politics.  She was truly a…

Research Project Information

Hello everyone. My name is David Kujawa. I am an anthropology student at Indiana University Northwest. I am currently conducting research into Steampunk.

This study has been reviewed and approved by an ethics committee to ensure that the privacy, autonomy, and anonymity of participates are… Continue
