Mary Griffith’s, 1835 - Three Hundred Years Hence, the 1st utopia story written by an American woman.

At SteamedBy reading early sci-fi books, you gather wonderful steampunk ideas, as well as a Victorian and Regency perspective on their vision of the future. Contrary to what I’ve heard some people say, women have written Sci-Fi books for hundreds of years. Including several published in the Regency and Victorian eras. One example is Mary Griffith’s, Three Hundred Years Hence, the…See More

Steampunk Media

Posted on March 22, 2012 at 2:32am 0 Comments

The captain and members of the Steamship Isabella along with Steam Powered Giraffe: The Spine, The John, and Rabbit in their robot makeup discussed Steampunk media at Clockwork.con. As fellow artist there are a lot of similarities between musicians and writers. The Steam Powered Giraffes said, “We write what we write and the Steampunk community embraced it.” To a novelist that would be the same as saying, I write from the heart. I love people who write from the heart whether it be literature…

Multicultural Steampunk Ficiton

Posted on October 9, 2011 at 9:00am 2 Comments

As the hub of the industrial revolution, Victorian Britain and its culture will continue to be one of the strongest settings for Steampunk fiction. That said, it is not the only legitimate setting. After all, even Jules Verne’s most memorial character, Captain Nemo, mentioned more than western European aristocrats in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. "Do you think I'm unaware of the suffering people and oppressed races of this planet, the poor to be comforted, the victims to be avenged?"…

Lost Cities and Unexplored Lands by Maeve Alpin

Posted on May 16, 2011 at 9:00am 2 Comments

Many 19th century world explorers and their discoveries made a tremendous impact on history. One of my favorite Egyptologist, Jean François Champollion, journeyed to Egypt, as one of the four members of the Franco-Tuscan Expedition, in 1827.  Of course he is primarily known for deciphering the rosette stone and unlocking the knowledge and history of the ancients Egyptians. Jean Francois Champollion is also the first curator of the Egyptian collection at the Louvre.…

Steamplus Costuming DOs and Don'ts

Posted on May 9, 2011 at 5:00am 1 Comment

Whether your costume is a Steampunk version of a ghost, vampire, mechanic, a Victorian lady, an airship crew member or pirate , a world explorer or something all together different,  you might benefit from some advice in regard to costuming issues plus sized men and women run into.  Here’s some great advice I picked up on costuming DOs and DON’Ts, specifically for plus size ladies and gentlemen, at a panel at the Steampunk Con, Aetherfest.  Starting with hats, as cute as the tiny top hats…

Question, Queries and Posers

It has been suggested that I should sell my hats. The problem is that I have absolutely no idea what to charge for them. The hats themselves are costume hats and the embellishments on them I had either made or purchased at retail. So my questions are, hypothetically speaking, if you were in the market for a hat such as these, how much would you be willing to pay for them? Basically, based off of what I do, what would you all consider to be fair market value for them?Help!See More

On the Moon with J. Nasmyth
