Lost Souls of the Asylum Now Available

Posted by on October 3rd,2012

Lost Souls of the Asylum is a Steampunk compilation forged in the bowels of our very own forum.  As seen Here , after submissions, editing, and publishing you may now aquire this fine collection.  The Asylum is in reference to the Asylum Steampunk Convention that takes place in the UK And you can find out more information about it on it’s main website.

As you can tell by the forum chain, this operation was choreographed by our own Arkwright.  I wanted to spotlight this work as a tremendous undertaking and a wonderful opportunity for  budding authors.

Arkwright tells the forum in post 137, there are plans for another volume.

The book is available online along with the previous two volumes of The Asylum Chronicles from http://thelastline.yolasite.com/online-store.php

Posted by on September 14th,2012

Well we had sex, so naturally the second great human obsession, Chocolate, had to be represented.  This has many Steampunk applications for the Steampunk Baker.  I’ve watched friends spend hours making gears out of Fondant.  Now you could just get a real gear (don’t forget to wash it and sanitize it), and make solid chocolate gears!

Posted by on September 9th,2012

This is nearly pornographic in its splendor:

A wonderful “visible” mechanical timepiece worthy of adding to a Steampunk outfit: the Devon Steampunk watch.

CLOSER: a Clockwork Operetta

Posted by on August 17th,2012

It’s not exactly Steampunk, but the overall sensibility is in a similar spirit:

Not to be outdone by our amazing Website Administrator Proteus, as Content Administrator I felt I should probably jump on the update band wagon!

I found this amazing little find today for those who are on the maker side of Steampunk.  Should your project require use of a sync cable for an iPod, iPhone, or iPad, I found this ready-made solution for you.  It also happens to be about $5.00(USD) less than the apple product.

Head on down to Eastern Collective and have a look.  While your at it, if you need other cabling ideas check our forum thread located Here .

Interesting idea at the very least:
