Le Steampunk : Fantasy à vapeur... ou néologisme de fantaisie ? Un mot pour une expérience. Le terme « Steampunk » puise son origine dans une lettre envoyée par K. W. Jeter au magazine Locus. Dans ce courrier, l’auteur californien propose l’appellation de Steampunk, parodiant volontairement celle de Cyberpunk, pour qualifier les fantaisies victoriennes écrites avec ses deux acolytes, Tim Powers et James P. Blaylock . Les fantaisies victoriennes. Dès 1979, K. Pour l’anecdote, signalons aussi que Tim Powers a écrit un épisode de cette série qui a abouti à son roman The drawing of the dark, paru en France sous le titre (curieux) de Les chevaliers de la brune. Londres devient le cadre des aventures de gentlemen confrontés à des événements extravagants et/ou surnaturels et qui, à l’occasion affrontent des méchants truculents voire grotesques. D’un jeu entre trois auteurs et d’un mot forgé par dérision fait-on pour autant un genre ? Des prédécesseurs et des continuateurs. Parcourons quelques ouvrages théoriques sur le sujet. Le proto Steampunk est né !

Gypsy Moon Clothing How to Make Steampunk Jewelry Wikipedia defines Steampunk as “a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used-usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England-but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of “the path not taken” of such technology as dirigibles or analog computers; these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or a presumption of functionality. Steampunk is often associated with cyberpunk and shares a similar fanbase and theme of rebellion, but developed as a separate movement (though both have considerable influence on each other).

Birth of a Ray Gun There are more ways to make a ray gun than there are ray guns, but here's how we made mine, and some tips for getting started. First, you'll need some raw materials to work with: Every time we're in a thrift store, I pick up the $1 brass candlesticks. When I come home I disassemble them (almost all unscrew into three or more pieces) and throw them in my junk box. The same goes for any interesting metal construction leftovers, wire, nuts and bolts, etc. Many people make their ray guns completely from metal, but I like the color and interest of adding glass. These were the pieces to a gun we later had to discard, because the bottle shattered during cutting. (You can see the finished piece here.) Once you have your raw materials, start playing. I usually like the back end of the gun to be larger, and then taper to a point on the front. I should note that you'll probably need to cut the bottle neck off for your design. To keep all the gun pieces together, we use a threaded metal rod. . Ta da!

Steampunk Jewelry Made Simple | STEAMED! May 19, 2011 by suzannelazear Today we welcome Brenda Sue of B’sue Boutiques who’s jewelry supply store not only has everything you need to make neat Steampunk jewelry, but she also has loads of instructional videos for people like me who love to make things, but in all honesty can’t craft their way out of a cardboard box. STEAMPUNK JEWELRY MADE SIMPLE: Breaking It Down to Cogs and Gears By B’Sue Love the Steampunk lifestyle? Check out this sweet Steampunk pendant I made: As this piece is raw brass, you’ll want to patina it. When you have achieved the color you want on the brass, simply seal it with Renaissance Wax. Into that cap, I poured a bit of mixed ICE RESIN. I also inlaid a circlet ring found at our website, as well as a tiny propeller. The trick is to pour only enough resin to inlay the bottom of the propeller so that it still spins. The actual pendant is available at B’sue Boutiques right here: How would you finish it? Come on over to B’sue Boutiques and check the place out!

Steampunk Finger Stylus I use a touchpad GPS regularly at work and lost the pen stylus a long time ago; it was inconvenient anyway trying to hold the stylus, GPS unit, and drive an ATV at the same time. So I made some finger stylussss?Stylii? from old water jug handles for work. For this Instructable I added some extra parts for fun Steampunk styling. Step 1: Cut Handle Out of Water Jug This is simple, just cut out a small section from the handle of the jug. Step 2: Plain Stylus Finish Briefly hold the tip of the stylus in a flame to round it and keep it from being scratchy. Step 3: Paint and Hot Glue Extra Stuff Getting a sense of Steampunk style takes a little intuition and internet browsing for ideas.

Steampunk Leather Top Hat Tutorial I have received several requests for a tutorial on making my steampunk leather top hat, shown above, and so, here it is. The first drawing shows the three pattern pieces (not to scale). The wave on the bottom of the crown is what gives the brim its distinctive curve. The pattern below is the one that I used to make my top hat. The crown joins at the back with a butt seam. You should use a lightweight but firm vegetable tanned leather. See the diagram at the lower right for construction details. This is the partially made hat.
