Steampunk seems to be taking over everything this year. How can you help you ask? How about turning that boring old Mr. Potato Head into a more steamy spud?
Follow the steps over at instructables.com and you can soon be the proud owner of a mechanically enhanced potato! Remember to give his mustache a nice curl!
Some absolutely amazing handmade ‘creatures’ from Ellen, (thus Creatures from El) From brilliant dragons to steampunk otters everything in between.
Visit her Esty shop here to request your own one of a kind creation.
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.

This will be important in september, basically half a normal knot. This is going to look great with my brilliant vest! Weird, my thumbnail images arent showing up on the homepage… always something.
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).
Turns out the screws on the loupes loosened during shipping. :(
Here are the best pictures I have, in full res to show how the loupes were attached to the goggles.
1 new pair of goggles freshly made, and another released for public consumption. My dining room table is entirely covered in parts and pieces. Time to make more goggles! Thanks for your support.
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!
