Greetings and salutations,

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Skip Lipman (rn) and I am a storyteller, prop & costume maker. My joys are my family and creating fun and interesting works.

I am a filmmaker, and have a new steampunk project that I will detail further in Aural-Ocular.

Just wanted to pop in and say, Cheerio!

Hello! My name is Tina, also known as Auntie Tina.  I recently started blogging and making videos on vintage and antique things.  My last post was on decorative compacts.  Who knew these clever little things had so many hidden compartments?  They reminded me of the gadgets in a the Steampunk novels I read, which led me to wonder how I could combine my interest.  So far, I haven't been able to make many connections, but so much of what I have researched finds its origins in the 1800's industrial age.  I am open to ideas and suggestions!  Meanwhile, I'm going to soak up all the wonderful information on this site and see if it can spark my creativity!
I would love for you to visit my site and leave some comments (polite ones are most appreciated!)
www.auntietinasantiques.com



Many thanks for the pointer to your site. The article on compacts was fascinating - why aren't they made like that anymore, elegant but with a surfeit of practical compartments? I was forced to make my own (http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,43842.msg933770.html#msg933770).

Oh, and a warm welcome to the forum! Skip too - best of luck with getting your film together.

Yours,
Miranda.

Greeting, my esteemed ladies and gentlemen! 

I go by Quinn, and I came across this gathering of like-minded individuals by chance during a search for inspiration for my various projects.  I have long lurked on the edges of the steampunk communities, marveling from afar all of the wonderful things that have been created, and I finally decided to jump in and partake of it in earnest.  I won't lie, I still have so much to learn about all of the influences that created this genre, but I've never passed on an opportunity to broaden my horizons and expand my knowledge!

Sewing, knitting/crocheting/weaving, writing, and drawing are all my biggest interest currently, and in the two former I intend to share my progress with.  In fact, I've been restoring a more modern (1969) flatbed knitting machine, and have plans to modify it aesthetically to resemble something that could have existed in the Victorian Era (the very first knitting machine ever was invented in 1589, in fact).  I'm also keenly interested in combining Victorian fashion with tradition Viking and Celtic designs, so expect to see that from me as well!

In the interest of not running at the mouth...er, keyboard, I will leave it here.  I hope to make a good impression here, and help others in their endeavors whenever I can as well!

Sincerely, Quinn

Greetings. Just thought I'd say hi.

I have always loved Sci-fi and fantasy stuff and have liked steampunk since I first heard/saw it.
Also love the Victorian aesthetic and style 

I am an artist and paint all the normal stuff but I'm prone to doing the occasional steampunk drawing and art too!

Hello I am Jerry. I am looking for people to give me insight into SteamPunk. I love the whole aesthetic it creates. I am in school and hoping to create a series of games involving the idea of SteamPunk. Any and all input is appreciated. I have a thread started for this particular purpose

Welcome, Moon! I'm kind of new here too, and I haven't experienced any hazing so far-- quite the opposite; everyone's been friendly and wonderfully helpful! Hope you enjoy your time here  Cheesy

Hi
I'm not sure how to work sites like this or anything.
Long story short I'm in collage doing a project and the theme we have been given is steampunk.
I enjoy the style but to really do it justice I'm trying to get a i site past the commercial side and see what it's all really about. Could anybody be kind enough to help me with this please.

Am I correct in thinking that steam punk is a lifestyle as in If you choose to embody it all then its taking the charms of the past as in the simplistic life and mixing them with a ideal future. As in we don't need the modern things and the way the world is going isn't great (my opinion) so with steampunk. It takes the good of the past alters them with the charms of the old macanical things. And politely with old morals rebels against modern ethics?

Sorry if I offend I'm trying to get my head around it.

No offence taken, first of all a warm welcome to our little world.

Could I suggest if you have a bucket load of questions, maybe start a new thread.

I've been into Steampunk for years now, and to be honest, I still hav'nt a clue how to define this beast that consumes me into words..... To me, it's kinda like riding a motorbike at high speed, you can't explain or decribe the feeling but somehow you just know it's right, gets the old blood flowing and just puts a big grin on your face.

Not much help for your college project, I know..........  Over to much wiser folk than myself..........

aka...not me. if you have made your thread already, excuse me I should head off there. I think steampunk can be a lot of things. A subculture not in the least. Like Punk the "lifestyle" steampunks might indeed find the modern world dissatisfying. I myself am mainly here not because I do not like technological advancement (agrees the fact that I am on the internet at the moment), but more because I sometimes think the world is a bit boring. steampunk fixes that. makes a more fantastic world image into something closer. I also just like to look fancy.
and that's a big group of people as well, that are just here because they like the clothing, like to make things, or just like our sci-fi background.

*Opens the door to my tinkerer's workshop and waves to the fancy hats on the street outside* Hi!

I am a simple man here at AdventureDepot, and I craft with brass, leather, wood, light and clay in Sweden.

I work every day with steampunk for many years now. I have potentially great volumes to contribute to the general steampunk community. I am not all that good at actually taking pictures and saving everything I make. We will see how much I will upload and where and how frequently. I live in isolation most of the time and i like it so. Forum activity can come and go in waves over the years, and I am far from unique in that regard.

My steam punk life is focused around the subculture's aesthetic and crafting related elements. I love and work in several aspects with all kinds of styles within that, the pirate, the explorer, the captain, the aristocrat, the scientist and mainly the mechanic.

Some of you might see me as part of the common rabble for merely pretending to be aristocrat among you, and you are sure right, but once I do pretend you would never know, as with all the other times before today.

Today I solved a way to store dense Aether for travel, also made yet another common filament lamp.

Thus I love all kinds of physical steampunk design.
I am not versed with steampunk in most other areas such as text or music.

I dream about one day living in a non functional, landed air ship. I don't imagine this will ever come to pass since I lack the money and the wood working skills to make the dream come true. But hell, would not a life sized airship in the shape of a villa be an amazing sight?*
