Amazing Bollywood steampunk! Wow, I have no words, so beautiful.
I can imagine this movie now– A love story, full of music and dancing. Two lovers who fit perfectly together like gears must save the city using the power of steam, and song…
I would totally watch that. Thanks to Chef for the tip!
Just look at this lovely steampunk group. All dressed up and ready to have some fun at the mall together.
Except… I’m blown away by this story about how the mall guards called the cops and chased them away. What?! ‘Tis true, I’m afraid. The reason? Mall rules against costumes covering the face, against groups larger than 3 gathering, and against photos being taken without the subject’s consent.
This happened on Feb. 9, 2014. LOL, so crazy. First of all, just look at the photo– you can see everyone’s face just fine. And the rule about groups over 3 people? Ha, sure. I guess the mall doesn’t like birthday parties, either. The last rule is equally ridiculous, as the group members obviously wanted their photos taken. I just don’t understand.
Boing Boing has a nice write up about this scandal. You can also read the original article on KPBS.org.
What a stupid, worthless mall!
I have always felt free to shop or dine without stopping to wonder if they would mind what I am wearing. The mall has added that doubt to the back of my mind. It may take a while for that to fade–and that’s a shame.

If you’re a steampunk who likes to bake, these Geeky Sprinkles may be just what you need. Tara, aka the Geeky Hostess is raising money on Kickstarter to produce a line of sprinkles that include steampunk gears, lightning bolts, even a Doctor Who Tardis!
She’s already reached her original goal of $33,500, so I’d say it’s a safe bet for success. Congratulations on a great idea! Head on over to Kickstarter if you’d like to contribute.

Ready for some steampunk virtual golf? Coming soon from Surprise Attack Games is Vertiginous Golf, a first person mini golf game, set in an alternate steampunk universe. Travel from a rainy Victorian world up into the sunny skies, where a huge realm of mini golf awaits you! Early access opens in March, 2014, and the current price of the game is only $10 if you buy now.
Vertiginous Golf is a physics based first person exploratory mini golf game set in a steampunk alternative universe. You travel from a Victorian world of eternal rain to a sun-drenched realm high above the clouds known as the Vertiginousphere, where a game of equally challenging and relaxing mini-golf awaits you. Vertiginous Golf elevates mini golf to a more mature level than the typical casual and child-orientated mini golf games currently available.
Here’s a look at the gameplay, followed by an Indie Spotlight Review by Draegast.

The amazing Mark Day is at it again, with another great video of a special event. He’s back at the Edwardian Ball in San Francisco! I love watching his videos, so full of great fashion, music and fun. The party moves to Los Angeles this weekend, so if you’re in the area, don’t miss it.

Here’s a drawing of Steampunk Furries by artist Kittyhawkman. Very nice! It was a gift for her boyfriend, just in time for a very furry Valentine’s Day. They look like a great couple.
Well done! If you’d like to commission a drawing from Kittyhawkman, you can send her a message via DeviantArt.

Check out this absolutely stunning steampunk time traveller costume! It was made by Alex of Steamworker, and photographed by Thomas Saur. Simply amazing. Do check out more of his work on DeviantArt, or his official site at steampunker.de.
Remember the giant steampunk spider in the Will Smith movie, The Wild, Wild West? Here’s a model of that spider, made entirely out of LEGOs! Absolutely amazing.
It was made by LEGO wizard Imagine Rigney, a teenager who “likes to build stuff.” Amazing job!
This mechanical Lego spider was built for an upcoming display, and it’s able to stand on its own, and “the front and back pairs of legs can move and flex to allow for stomping on town/train displays.” This is such a cool build. It’s pretty complex and loaded with awesome details.

Here’s a neat rendition of a steampunk-inspired Darth Vader. I think this is way cool. It was drawn by Redditor metafaze. Wouldn’t it be fun to see him go against Hulkbuster Iron Man?
Very nicely done, Sir!
It’s almost 2014!
The good people of Bit2Good made this holiday video to wish everyone a happy New Year. They’re a game company currently working on a steampunk game called Glasses. So yeah, this video is a bit of a marketing promotion, but it’s a well intended and fun way to bring in the new year.
Glasses is a steampunky, runner-inspired platformer in which you as the precious prentice Quentin Quaint will have to use your Steamengine Enhanced Wheelchair Device (S.E.W.D.) to reassemble the trans-dimensional glasses collection of your marvelous master and save not only your own, but also all other dimensions from an exorbitantly evil emperor.
Happy New Gear!
