Steampunk Steady Cam for my iPhone!

| 3rd July 2012

I was asked to film some book launches by Lisa (my partner) for an author (Robyn Caughlan) who has asked Lisa to make her book into a film.  The book is called ‘Waiting at the Gate‘ – where you can share the journey from book to film.  It’s billed as ‘one woman’s journey out of hell’ and […]

An iPhonograph for Charity

| 25th June 2012

I was asked if I could donate an iPhonograph to NSW Cavalcade of History and Fashion charity to raise some much needed funds in a raffle.  So I created this more modern version (compared to my previous iPhonograph) as 1st prize in their biggest fundraising event this year – their 50th Anniversary Fashion Parade raising money to preserve clothing […]

Steampunk Hats, from W The House of Wormwood

| 30th July 2009

Up in Vallejo, CA every year for the past few years, they hold a “Pirate Festival”, open to the public for free. In my humble opinion (and I hope no one gets their panties in a bunch over this) it’s a rather fringy Renn Faire, but its free and a TON of fun. “Pirates” cover […]

Steampunk Cubicle… How are you doing it?

| 5th March 2009

Cubicles are meant to be droneish for a reason. The less difference in one cubicle to another means the less the employees stop to chat about anything unique. It keeps things productive. But when you spend 8+ hours of your day in your office, you want to have things around you that make you happy. […]

Awesomest Watch Evah

| 7th January 2009

Heh. For a modern off the shelf item….. this is the ONLY watch I will wear. <3 my husband muchly for making it my Christmas present. It winds itself by using a pendulum that swings with your body movement. You can see the jewels, the gears, the movement, the winding mechanism. Being on time has […]

Steampunk Dollhouse, Continued…

| 9th October 2008

It seems less intimidating to me to modifiy dollhouse parts. Less risky than trying to modify the life size (and considerably more costly) versions of things. Since folks seemed to enjoy my tinsy keyboard, I thought I’d add something else I had been working on. Thermal Grandfather TimeKeeper Just a fun little thing… nothing fancy. […]

Steampunk at the California State Fair

| 1st September 2008

My family went to the California State Fair on August 31st. Mightily disspointed that the Sky Coaster had been replaced by a bungee jump. However, there were some very Steampunky items on display at the fair.   The was the “Garr Scott”, a true steam-run tractor. It ran a large belt down to a columbine […]

Steampunk findings…

| 5th August 2008

While gathering parts for a project I’m working on, I stumbled across a very nifty object that begs for someone to take it home and steampunk it. This poor lonely object is sitting on the basement floor of an antique conglomerate of dealers. I took pictures of it for you. I can give you their […]

Steampunk Keyboard, The Mini Me Version

| 11th July 2008

I was going through a handful of tiny watch parts I purchased on Ebay and a few of the bitz reminded me of a certain infamous keyboard. With much appreciation to Jake Von Slatt for the original, I present the Steampunk Dollhouse “Von Slatt” Inspired Keyboard:   Look a tiny bit familiar? The curved side […]
