Steampunk Roundup

Steampunk PCAs I’ve mentioned many times previously I’m a fan of steampunk; I love the vibe of mass-produced mixed with one-off craftsmanship in the alternate-history technology that’s such a hallmark of the genre. If you’re similarly a fan, here are some links you might enjoy.

Steampunk Couture – Hand-crafted clothing focusing on “Neo-Victorian, Sci-Fi and Shabby Chic fashion.” (They also have a Facebook page)

Ruffled recently featured a gorgeous steampunk wedding with heaps of drool-worthy photos. Offbeat Bride also has a number of steampunk wedding ideas, including clockwork cakes, thematic invitations, and much else.

Girl Genius is a “gaslamp fantasy comic” penned by Phil and Kaja Foglio.

The Steampunk Home is a blog is devoted to home d├ęcor that combines “the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.”

Aether Emporium bills itself as a “onestop resource and archive for all things Steampunk.” It’s a splendid resource, and it appears that they’ve recently switched over to a wiki format.

Steampunk Pics is no longer updating, but their archive is still available. There are images of steampunk items (such as “ray guns”) and real vintage photos with a steampunk feel (like Zeppelins floating over cities).

The Steampunk Workshop offers some great project ideas, plus resource links and lots of photographs.

Antipodean Steampunk Adventures is a personal blog: “Follow the adventures of the maduncle as he endeavours to make contact with the rest of the steampunk universe from the outer colonies.”
