A Ramble About Texting at the Table and Derogatory Language

    Once upon a time, last month, a group of young people went to dinner before attending their high school prom. Of course they all had their smart phones in hand and they were texting each other at the table. One of the young men realized, far too late, that he was a little short of funds. He…

Norman, OK should be ranked in Steampunk - not just football!

Bit of rebuttal to blogger's 'Most Steampunk Cities in America'

Norman, OK boasts many Steampunk & Victorian treasures.  In our last blog we shared info on our train, our award-winning art collection, our foundry, and more.  History, craftsmanship, and talent are important; however, much of steampunk was founded in literature's science fiction.…

Steampunk Paino (2)

So after much ado, the paint job is finally on. I had a massive headache getting the paint to behave in an appropriate and timely manner. The piano faces directly west, so the sun beats down on it pretty relentlessly during the longest days of our year. The heat was so intense that the paint started to blister with every coat. So every coat I had to sand down and touch up. I finally decided to work on it at night time, starting around 9pm and going home around midnight. The only drawback was…

Steampunk Bride Captures Color Trends & Beauty of the Peacock!

Eclectic weddings are individual, distinctive, and often a singular moment for the bride to the focus of the fanfare, especially if she’s starring in a steampunk wedding!  Our first blog about steampunk discussed some of the basics: literature, Victorian-era fashion, and the finest craftsmanship in metals, leathers, and fabrics.  Today I am lucky to share gorgeous dress created by seamstress Lisa Sauter with photography by Ian Danziger.…

Steampunk Picnic Idea

I would love to create a steampunk picnic where everyone gathers in a park and enjoys talking, and eating their picnic lunch, role playing, and just have fun. I am curious what kind of interest there would be in this kind of event?

Templecon 2014 - Afterthoughts

It has now been almost a month since I returned from Templecon.  One month of scouring the interwebs searching for pics of myself.  You see, Ms. Smart Person brought her uber nice camera along, then failed to remove it from her hotel room the entire weekend.  It's also been a month of scouring the interwebs for another reason - MUST FIND MORE LOCAL STEAMPUNK EVENTS!



A fact about me - I'm a Victorian Era obsessed nut.  I have been since, well at least age 16, possibly earlier. …

Where To Buy Steampunk Clothing

When you live and breathe steampunk culture it’s not uncommon to get funny looks every now and then. Obviously walking through town centre wearing a top hat, waistcoat and monocle will certainly turn heads, which is part of the fun. Engaging with people in everyday life and watching shopkeepers as they try to serve you with…

Stella Drexler's Halloween Spooktacular Steampunk Special: LITTLE AGNES AND THE GHOSTS OF KELPIE WHARF Part Three

PART THREE

The ebony stone skinned creature spun towards them, widening his grinding mouth in a ghastly grin. He lifted hands as long and sharp as needles and raced towards them. Agnes did not fire her pistol. Instead, she seized Vic's arm and stepped to the side, for the creature, while swift and deadly, was quite stupid. He did not anticipate their change in direction and continued on his path,…

Stella Drexler's Halloween Spooktacular Steampunk Special: LITTLE AGNES AND THE GHOSTS OF KELPIE WHARF Part Two

PART TWO

Kelpie Wharf was dismal and grey. The fog, so dense and moist with the salty sea air, was oppressive and choking. A spooky stillness hung over the silent ships bobbing in their slips. Agnes listened in the thick, eerie silence, but there was no snarling, splashing or singing from the legendary ghost.

She crept stealthily along the creepy,…
