I love that this site is based towards bringing steampunk together In a single community. I look forward to sharing ideas with all of you
Many people have been noticing lately that the online Steampunk community has been full of arguments and rifts, especially in light of the recent closing of Steampunk Industrial Revolution. Why is our community so argumentative, and what can we do about it? Before we go any further, let's nip the whole "Steampunk has gotten worse" thing in the bud, shall we?
I recently got into physically making steampunk armor. One thing I look at though is my persona is a Mercenary, so I would like to have a hood rather than a hat or mask. One problem though is that in every schematic that I either come up with or that is handed to me, it just looks like a black fabric draped over the head. Is there a way to make it more than just that? Please share your ideas. I don't mind how stupid you think they may be, every suggestion may give me another idea.
Most of us are well aware of the gun control debate currently raging in the United States, a debate which reached new heights in the immediate aftermath of the awful tragedy at Sandy Hook.
Hi guys, We have created a mobile peg solitaire game with steampunk sound, music and graphics.
A young man in the Steampunk scene yesterday was crushed to death by his own gears. His family has requested that his name remain private, but he was known in the Steampunk community as Lord Nigil Cornelius Crankstone IV. According to the police report, no foul play is suspected, as Crankstone was literally crushed beneath the weight of the massive quantity of small gears he was wearing. The majority of them were glued, sewn, or riveted onto his clothing, but some were simply piled on. Cranks...
I'm fairly new to the culture of steampunk, having just joined the Olympia Gaslight Guardians, and I'm looking for tips on a steampunk Sniper outfit.
As someone who's been actively involved in the Steampunk scene since 2006, I have a different perspective on it than most. For anyone living under a rock, recently IBM said that Steampunk would be a big retail trend between 2013 and 2015. Then Forbes magazine jumped on board, and Steampunks around the country (if not the world) freaked out while others rolled their eyes disdainfully. I even wrote an article a few weeks ago about how best to capitalize on Steampunk's rising tide.
So I have been constantly looking at this world and the more and more I see it the more and more I want to experiment and work with steampunk! I just cant think of anywhere to start. If you guys could help me figure out where to start, that would be much appreciated! I want to be involved but not have it take up all of my time, so that is what I am looking for.
Happy new year! Historically, the first few days of the new year are perhaps the most forward-looking time of the entire year, so it's only appropriate to think of what Steampunk has in store for us in the future.
So I'm 15 and just got into steampunk about 3 years ago. I'm one of those people who has those fantasies about having another profession in a different type of world, and my profession would be 'blacksmithing'. So any suggestions for clothing anf gadgets. And how to make gadgets?
Im looking to start with Steampunk, I've done some very small projects and I couldn't think of something realistic for me, so I wondered what were all of your first real projects? Any suggestions on something simple I could make?
What is your current project? What is exciting, inspiring, motivating you?
