STEAMPUNK TUESDAYS! *echo, echo, echo* - as my OAC Calculus teacher would say, no seriously, he did. Only it would be with stuff like, "Today we are starting TRIGONOMETRY! Echo, echo, echo!"
(for those of you going, "Wait? What? What's Steampunk?" - click here)
Since it's my first of these things, I thought I'd share with you my thrilling personal relationship with Steampunk. What do I mean by that? Well, I thought I'd share with you all some of my attempts to Steampunk out my new apartment. Now it doesn't look anything like this apartment, but, it's got it's own special Steampunk flavour to it I think.
|Here's the mantelpiece. We have, as all mantelpieces have, a pirate nutcracker, we also have some useful jars to put things in that came from my grandparents. An Underwood typewriter. And some prints on the wall that I purchased from CollageOrama on etsy. Last but not least we have a Clobe. Which is a clock with a globe like exterior. Obviously. This J.M. Frey pointed out to me on a shopping spree at Value Village. Let's have a closer look at the Clobe shall we . . .|
Now we move onto my office:
So there you go! My apartment so far. I still have some more plans for more Steampunk goodness, and when I actualise them I will for sure keep you posted.
And now, as promised from yesterday, here is also something else that involves me, but also a bunch of my Steampunk friends. I was at FanExpo, manning the Steampunk table, and SPACE (the Canadian version of SYFY) came over and interviewed us for InnerSPACE.
If you aren't that familiar with the general Steampunk aesthetic, this is a lovely brief encounter for you, where you get to see some killer costumes and props.
So, here's that segment, and here I am!
And there you have it! Our first ever Steampunk Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed it! Do share your thoughts below.
