You guys, I've decided I need to learn leather-working. And yes, Emily L.'s sending me a link to these amazing steampunk bags MIGHT have had something to do with it:
I don't see that style listed right now, but this next one is!
$139 on her Etsy shop
Oh, and remember how I talked about making a hip bag that hangs from a belt by two straps? Well, check this action out:
Hit the links up there to shop, gawk or both.
Next up, Erick H. found the most astounding reproduction light bulbs:
These are from Ferrowatt Productions, which sells more styles of old-fashioned filament bulbs than I've ever seen. That one on the right is called the "Ball-O'-Fire," and I totally want one. Or maybe a dozen. (Hit the link to see a vid of it in action - flickery goodness!) Of course, you have to "request a quote" for all of Ferrowatt's bulbs, so I'm pretty sure that means I can't afford 'em. Poo.
For you Whovians out there, Norma E. spotted a fantastic steampunk sonic screwdriver:
Made by Danny Ashby of Outland Armour
And while we're at it, how about a steampunk K-9?
James Richardson-Brown, and when I went to grab the link to his gallery, I found he'd made a gold and black version, too!
I stumbled across Nerfenstein Blaster Mods & Props by way of SuperPunch, and this gamer girl is my newest hero. In addition to making amazing homage blasters to games like BioShock and Portal, she also has a healthy steampunk obsession. Check out this Tesla she made, inspired by H.G. of Warehouse 13:
You can see more at her site (link above) or her DeviantArt page.
And finally, the original steampunk computer guy himself, Datamancer, has made a new laptop that goes beyond breathtaking:
Would you believe this is a laptop?? (Don't worry, I didn't either, at first!)
If you've never seen Datamancer's other work, do yourself a favor and go check out his site. (If you've ever drooled over a steampunk keyboard, odds are he made it.) I still have a less-than-half-done keyboard tucked away inspired by his work, but if I ever win the lotto I'm totally commissioning one from the master. :)
Seen something steamy this week? Then show me the goodness! Link me up in the comments or over on Facebook!
