  1. ABNEY PARK IS IN THE BACKGROUND :D Probably already know that but thats what first got me into Steampunk. I need help designing an outfit though

  2. search for ‘Newcastle Central Arcade’ – I think you will like ;)

  3. @rainbowshoester Do you mean you need help designing steampunk fashion or do you mean you don’t exactly know what you have in mind to wear?

  4. This video is great! It’s a bit inspiring to get me to search for more articles of clothing to add to my wardrobe.
    

  5. Steampunk is just being emo..but instead of black..you wear brown…but cyberpunk is way better… :)

  7. hi people just seeing if i can get some help, im 15 years old and don’t know where to start with steampunk like i love the style and i love making things but i have problem with getting things together (any body get what im trying to say if so please let me know if u can help) thanks :)

  8. @harrypotter520 sorry did not think to look at your profile until after I posted, ignore last link lol. if you search for steampunk free patterns you’ll find pages (I got a million responses, though how many of those are the fall back of the internet (porn that is) and how many are fake offs to places selling outfits (if you buy always check materials used, and ask about size charts they are using, etc) but there are plenty of helpful steampunk fans/costumers/clothiers who offer free patterns…

    image ideas/patterns mostly female styles.

  10. For some it is fashion, for others more of a lifestyle (there are steampunk designed homes if you can afford it).
    Others play one of the assorted games (I play Airship Pirates, the game from the Abney Part site as well as games that have a similar ‘dial back the clock’ feel like the Serenity/Firefly game – with its western vibe; the American West was at its height during the Victorian Age, failing, as the VA did at the end of the century).
    So what it is really up to what you want it to be…

    If you bothered actually looking you’d see most of the goggles have multiple flip down and twist over lens NOTHING like cyberpunk. Also, while the goggles are an easy ‘badge’ of both genres neither depend completely on them, ie the people with OUT the goggles in the video. Actually I thing bowler and top hats are more common than goggles (with a dash of more lady like hats :D ) but the hat and goggles together pretty much rule out cyberpunks and Vampire LARPS…

  12. I don’t know where to start with this stuff but I love it… Wish I had an in.

  13. Oh Crackitus, how i do love you and your backpack

  14. Steampunk is a classification of a group of people. The grand engineers of the 1800′s.

  15. lol goggle is allwys been acyberpnk u fuckign rip offa

  16. What is steampunk is it just a fashion or something i thought it was a game or a TV show can someone please tell me? >_<

  17. The Bradbury Building. Same location they filmed Blade Runner. I was given permission to film in it :)

  18. what building are they in? its so beautiful!

  19. I recently got into steampunk and I need some help getting started. But something I want to do is have my prom suit to be a steampunk theme. Can anyone help me get started or point me in a good direction?

  20. really cool, i first heard about steampunk in one of the firefly channels

  21. i want to get into steampunk but im low on brass sprockets and geard and i havent the money to buy anything like that, where do i start?

  22. 5:45 I don’t care if it’s steam punk or 20s retro bowler hats are cool at any given time

  23. I haven’t heard of that con before! Well I’m glad I could be of some help :) I’m a steampunk costumer as well so it’s awesome more awareness is getting out there!

  24. Of course I will credit you! And the Convention is Anime Banzai, they jumped on the band wagon of themeing your con steampunk this year but weren’t exactly sure as to how to really ADD the steampunk aspect. So they asked me to do a steampunk panels including a 101 and I think your video would be perfect to help. :)
