For Halloween last fall, lovely lady Goldenmoonrose sewed this amazing steampunk Tardis dress from Doctor Who! Very subtly done, it’s not immediately recognizable until you take a closer look.
What a gorgeous dress, well done, Madam!
My Halloween costume this year was an anthropomorphic steampunk TARDIS, based very loosely on Neil Gaiman’s The Doctor’s Wife. Granted, it was basically an excuse to make this Simplicity pattern and take advantage of my only chance to do some Doctor Who cosplay. Although no one had a clue as to what I was, my costume totally rocked. By far the best thing I’ve ever sewn.
Want to learn how to make your own pair of steampunk goggles? Check out this gorgeous, and very large, image tutorial put together by Fenris the Red Wolf on DeviantArt. Wow, he must have spent a lot of time creating this, very impressive.
Here’s an interesting gift idea for the steampunk gamer… steampunk dice! MechanicalOddities uses their 3D printer to make these unique dice. The number of gears on each side represent a number from 1-6. Very cool idea! For $11.50, this is a very nice and affordable gift idea, indeed.
This unique die was designed and modeled in the computer. We used our in house 3D printer to literally print it one thin layer at a time and then infused it by hand. It has been hand painted to a bronze-like finish. A cool present for the gamer or Steampunk fan in your life.
The dimensions are
in inches: 1 x 1 x 1
in centimeters: 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5
Oh my, this music video is too funny. YouTube user Pikedevant put together this excellent song about things that just aren’t quite steampunk. “Just glue some gears on it,” LOL.
This topic has come up a few times on this blog. Personally, I have no problem whatsoever with fun steampunk creations, even if they don’t necessarily make sense. I like seeing all kinds of steampunk-inspired costumes and gadgets.
But I do get what this song is about, and I sure think it’s great. Very well done!
Lego enthusiast Matt Armstrong has assembled a remarkable collection of steampunk-inspired gadgets… made entirely out of Legos!
His work includes a Victorian bellows camera, meerschaum pipe, phonograph and Victorian phone. Aren’t these simply gorgeous? Possibly the best the Lego creations I have seen, Matt is a true master. Well done, Sir!
Look at this cute little guy stuck inside a watch! What an amazing sculpture.
He’s an oddfae… made by artist Dawn M Schiller… aka Oddfae on DeviantArt. You can visit Oddfae.com to view many more of her odd creatures. Very interesting!
Each sculpture is one of a kind, and many are for sale. Definitely worth checking out!
One-of-a-kind artist piece with onyx bead eyes, hand-sculpted of my own blend of polymer clay into a pocketwatch case, and detailed with powdered pigments and artists’ acrylics. This Oddfae’s tiny little brass goggles are handmade by me from brass tubes and watch parts. He wears a watch gear over his heart.
