The Crossroads of the Aether
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

As I was strolling through the fashion pastures of the AEthernets I started to wonder, "Where are…Continue

I just started a project. I am making my own loupe for my goggles. I just have to wait until my goggles arrive next week. However. I have already made the loupe. Here is what I have done so far.Continue
Now I know the modern male decries the tie nearly as much as the modern female decries the hated "shape wear". I do understand this particular element of men's wear is cumbersome and often uncomfortable, but they come with a venerable pedigree and so many permutations that any steampunk style man can find one to fit his particular fancy. Stay with me gents, because there will be many pictures and lots of video links to how to tie any particular that you would like to sport.
We are proud to say that despite the silence? We are hard at work. Unfortunately, no one has killed one another yet, making the set a relatively fun and creative environment instead of a much more entertaining Battle Royale of gossip, intrigue, and murder.
On that note, updates!…Continue
Has it really been, yowser, that many months?
I'm still kicking, and so is the film. We had a great trip to ChattaCon this past weekend. Okay, the panel was a little scarce -- to those of you who came, thanks for the support! -- but there's nothing quite like leaving a nudist room-party and bumping into Emilie Bush from Steampunk Chronicle!
Engines of Destiny had the chance to sit…Continue

If you are going to wear a top hat, make it really fantastic!…
These are Steampunk designs from my friends at Lastwear. Quite decidedly Steampunk in most cases.
Check out "Hipster The Get Down" on Youtube. Jack Passion Beard and Mustache World champion stars as the lead nature hipster. Cool shots of a Steampunk played by Brad Johnson

On the delicate subject of what a gentleman wears below the belt, I will endeavor to be completely frank. While I usually don't mention what should not be done in favor of what should, it is here that I will state categorically for my younger readers, no lady of steampunk sensibilities wants to see your…Continue
Happy Halloween, I though I might liven up the season with a couple of videos I mashed-up several years back.
Dr Tarr and Prof Fether Blinded Me With Science
This is probably more dieselpunk than steampunk, but you get the idea.I always liked Edgar Alan Poe's works so it just seemed to jell with Alan Parson's Dr. Tarr & Professor song. Another song and video I liked was Thomas Dolby's She Blinded Me With Science. All three just went together like a…Continue
The use of a vacuum siphon actually dates to the early Victorian Era and is still in use today. I thought this company made a reasonably ornate steampunk coffee maker, although it could use a bit more embellishment and gilding the lily, so to speak.
Here is a really good link about the history of coffee siphons http://baharris.org/coffee/History.htm. A coffee maker such as this could really enhance a steampunk coffee…Continue

Once upon a crumbling nation there was a woman who collected the broke pieces of watches and dreams. The light from the high tower window never slept, drawing to it the wishes of those carried on the wings of butterflies and moths. Into the pieces she wove those lovely creatures, mixing…Continue

We're going to the Steampunk Festival at the Asylum in Lincoln, England this weekend. I'm taking my invention Great Aunt Bertha and have written a post which has a short video of me in The Laboratory getting Great Aunt Bertha ready for the Asylum. Unfortunately, I had trouble uploading the video directly onto here, so I have added a link if you would like to watch it.Continue

I'd like to invite the good people of The Steampunk Empire to view my newest blog entry on at my blogger CoastConFan blog about Steampunk Armor. Rather than try to cut and paste it to this blog, I'll provide a link:

Now, I know all of you have encountered these people at events, conventions and even innocent tea parties. They come in all shapes and sizes and sexes (Yes, I did say sexes. People have sex. Language has gender.). They usually show up at the event late. Often they are inappropriately kitted out (that means "dressed") and baring an attitude. This I can tolerate. After all, we don't all have three closets full of clothing to choose from and everyone has a dreadful day now and then. But…Continue
