Gears, goggles, and glamour; Corsets, crafts, and creativity; Sci-fi, silliness, and Steampunk; Dirigibles, dancing, and DIY; Physics, phonics, and phoenixes; Bustles, balloons, and beads; Lace, leather, and life; Fantasy, feathers, and flaws; Paper, piercings, and pirates!

I got interested in Steampunk starting in 2009 but I haven’t had a chance to be as active in the scene as I’d like to be. I thought having a blog where I could store all of the resources I find and share it with the growing community of steampunk enthusiasts would be a great way to start. It’s clear that this is a genre and aesthetic that is exploding and I want to be a part of it.


My background is in Anthropology, Art History and Museum Studies, so I see this site as a sort of living digital museum that I get to curate. For the past 3+ years, my husband, tiny dog and I have been living the lives of vagabonds and bouncing between places as far off as Bulgaria and as familiar as MN where I grew up. We’re in Michigan for the moment, but only Fate knows how long that will last…
