I'm not a furry, and Brantley's a surgical mutation. (don't make me call out my flying monkey butlers)

Will they get you my pretty, you and your little dog too? :D

Well, welcome anyway to any of our furry brethren. I do know there to be a couple around, though I haven't seen them in a while...
I'm sure they'll show up again sooner or later :D

You? Those legs on? Would you even be able to get in the door of your average drinking establishment? In your bare feet your knocking on the door of 6'6 at least. Those heels make a pair of new rocks look like a set of flats! With those bad boys on, you'd be what, 7'2? Possibly more?


Well clearly I'd have to go to a pub with a beer garden! I'd have to wait outside (so I could at least smoke my pipe!) while someone else actually goes in and gets the beers.

Well, it's a little too.....horse gas mask :



It also looks like The Elephant Man's cousin The Horse Guy...  Too sack-like I think.  :-\


It's doable - maybe lose the cloth...  erm... snout(?) bit and replace with a more leather and metal part.  Maybe a metal cylinder with pipework and leather flaps (or mechanical parts), then add some leather strapping + buckles over the head area.

Well, it's not called the Dusty Pelt for nothing.

Has anyone a shot a whiskey for a thirsty honey badger? Leave the bottle.

No whiskey, and I have had all the port. The gin and vodka supplies are running low.

That is a man dressed as a turkey.



Are you sure it's not a turkey, dreaming he's a man?

Pull out his giblets stick some stuffing in, a few hours at a decent temperature, some roast potatoes and it really won't matter.

I've been having a long hard think about this (not in the biblical, scritching or furpile sense) and apart from the general oddity in it's raw plush form I have the creeping realization that Steampunk loves a bit of plush.

Now before everyone poo-poos the idea, one has to understand the lean of the zoology. There are certain plush things that are positively embraced by the community: Beatrix Potter, monkey butlers, man owls (if you follow Professor Elementals musical videos).

So we have a minor issue here. We love plush when it's the right kind of plush. Historical plush, plush that sits neatly within the genre. So why not embrace all plush? Well that's simple, most of it is badly executed. To be steampunk plush think the fantastic Mr Fox, not half time American football mascot. It's the lack of effort we (or certainly I) decry. Hell, dress up like tweedle dumb and tweedle dee if it floats your airship. Just don't do it badly.

This is yes:


this is no:


(by god! It's like the plush equivalent of Kappa)

Well historically plush and steam have had their issues. Fox hunting, running around with a blunderbuss murdering the hell out of the local indigenous wild life.

You know how it goes, a word is spoken in jest, offence is taken and it all goes down hill from there. It is refreshing to see a herbivore, there is something of an epidemic of wolves, cats and foxes.

Get your joy where you can find it, that's what I say. Life's to short not to find a little solace in shamanistic practice if it turns your eye.
