Steampunk Bling

Set in a world where intrepid Seafarers carefully drew coiling Sea Monsters 

into the waters of their maps....

The Dollmaker's Latest Obsession...


The Dollmaker shall now attempt to define 

Well!  It's...  Mad Science!  Preposterous Inventions!  Top Hats!

 Time Machines!

Propeller-driven Flying Airships and Submarines!

Genius Misfit Daredevils bubbling about at 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea!  

 Similarly intrepid adventurers Voyaging to the Center of the Earth!  Hot!

By Jove,  a whole ticking, clacking, popping movement risen up around Pressurized Steam! 

ah! The Romance of Locomotives belching smoke, gear-driven clockworks, adjustable goggles! Vacuum tubes, monocles, pistons! Flywheels! Flicker-movies!! A miniature derringer hidden in a secret compartment in the heel of a boot belonging to a shadowy stranger...

 It's about grunge leather, brass-studded, somewhat utopian, somewhat hooligan, strapped-on, spring-propelled gadgets...

OK... AND! Cool Villians! Solar deathrays fueled by crystal and copper, ionized force domes generated by a tuning fork.... (evil chuckle)

Jake Von Slatt

 Making bicycles fly...

Victorian, Vaudeville, Fantastical 

 

.... proper fashion for a proper revolution, a brass distillery in every home... giant vegetables and man-eating squid!

it's all this and more... but

This is the Dollmaker's favorite definition:

"Steampunk is a balance of

the "what was",  the "what should've been"  and  the "what the hell!"

Check out  the Trailer for 

Howl's Moving Castle

a genuinely awesome Steampunkish movie:

http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi2391802137/

  It's Victorian/Edwardian aesthetic with steam-driven, mad-science mechanics, a lot of watch parts and clockworks. It frequently includes mechanical body parts, steam-powered designs, goggles, mechanical wings, leather, lace, velvet, sepia tones, black/red/white, corsets, full skirts with almost-combat boots, etc.
