Here’s a very dapper and distinguished steampunk Santa costume. Man, he looks classy.

This photo was taken by photographer Steven Saus, and posted on Flickr. It looks like it was filtered a bit in Instagram for a properly aged aesthetic.

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas, Everyone!

I’ve posted a few steampunk Jokers in the past, and here’s another very nice one. She’s got the goggles, corset and bustle skirt in a nice rendition of steampunky Victoria fashion. Plus, she gets extra points for her Batman dog. So cute.

Very well done!

Steampunk Rap: ‘Just Like a Chap’

   Posted by: manny    in Music, Video

Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer is back with a dandy new song! ‘Just Like a Chap’ is chap-hop at its finest, indeed. This is really great stuff. Both the song and the video are top notch, so fun. Very well done, good Sir!

Head on over to iTunes to pick up his albums, you won’t regret it.

Aiming to dazzle with dignity, Mr. B takes to the stage with his Banjolele and stiff upper lip to perform ditties of pipe-smoking, high society, Cricket and sexual misadventure, as well as some more well-known pieces from the world of Hip-Hop, re-worked in true Chap-Hop fashion.

She even has a little steampunk gun. But Greenwing assures us, “Her gun only has a stun setting.” Adorable!

1886: Steampunk Fashion Video

   Posted by: manny    in Fashion, Video

Take a look at this gorgeous steampunk video by directors Adrian Lazarus and Nicky Felbert. Truly stunning! It was shot in a coffee shop in Capetown, South Africa. David, the coffee shop owner, already had a collection of steampunk costumes, and the team managed to produce this video for less than $1,000.

The piece is a fantasy video showcasing the fashion, the hats, the gadgets and the lifestyle that could have been the future of 19th Century steam culture, set in the future. The decadent nature of this steam era video, is portrayed with strong gun-slinging women, and rough grizzly men. The music from Moby suits the piece perfectly.

Great work!
