A little hustle with that bustle ma’am

By rosebud 19 March 2009 23

Steampunk.

Nope, didn’t mean much to me either until today. But think Victorian slut (Moulin Rouge maybe) meets Clockwork Orange (bad guy eye patch) meets Naussica (the machines that time forgot).

It seems it is everywhere, well at least on the net.

There are Steampunk parties in New York, Steampunk conventions in Europe and Steampunk get togethers in Japan.

I am interested to know if there is a Steampunk scene in Canberra? If so, where does one find flea bitten fox wraps, top hats with cogs and wheels, over-sized brass goggles, and enough white pancake make up to startle a
Geisha? Is there a particular kind of music that goes with it? Any bands you care to name as Steampunk? Got any photos to share? I found plenty on the net, but am never sure of the copyright nuisance.

I found one affictionardo who blogged a trip to Corinfest http://www.johnnypayphone.net/blog but I am unsure if he is a local or not.

I think it is fantastic. It certainly makes the latest Canberra Centre glossy look very Stepford wife indeed

Etsy.com has some handmade steampunk stuff. I saw a really cool watch the other day.
