The Crossroads of the Aether
... 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…Continue

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…Continue

London, England, White Chapel District
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.

Picture this scenario:

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…Continue

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…Continue
