Holy cow is this awesome. I’ve been wanting to create a steampunk version of Optimus Prime, even have some raw old trains to cut up to make him, but this raises the bar pretty darn high. Created by Encline Designs, which seems sadly to be no more. But thankfully they have left us with images of their brilliant transformers creation. I really like how the smokestack turns into his gun.
Update: Due to scheduling conflicts (didn’t find out when set up was until late last night) I won’t be able to exhibit any of my creations at the World Steam Expo Art Show as hoped. :(
Look for these goggles to be available soon here and on the ETSY SHOP.
Here are some ‘unaltered’ photos of the goggles I will be displaying at the World Steam Expo Art show. As of now some still don’t have names. The last pair may or may not make it, still waiting on the main piece for them but I wanted to tease the 3 people that visit my site.
Spent most of the day today crafting new goggles. 2 pair that were almost done are now completed. As 2 pair that weren’t even thought of before today made it to 90% completion as well. All in all a good day of goggling. Images to come soon, for now here is a sneak peek of the 90% pairs.
The Engineer’s Spring goggles were damaged on shipping. Just completed repairs and making a super cushy box to ship them back in, as they may be in a wedding! Also sending along the newly completed Aviator’s Targeting Goggles so they have an option between the two.
If any customer is ever unsatisfied we will do what we can to make things right. Free repairs should anything ever happen to your goggles during normal use (if you land a Zeppelin on them, you are out of luck, sorry).
Today’s trip to the flea market uncovered a beautiful old typewriter. I was so happy to discover it, and it makes me even happier that it is model No.5. From what I’ve found these were made between 1900 and 1932, the No. 5 being the most common one, but I have a special place for 5s in my heart so it gladdened it even more. Soon this will be reduced to a pile of wonderfully steamy parts!
The first pair I made is the first pair sold! WOOOO. Mechanic’s Goggles SOLD!
So very happy! The sale was thru my ETSY.com shop to a wonderful person out in New York. Looking for some extra’s to put in for her as a thank you for being my first customer.
