I think I could live with this becoming mainstream.

Yes. Because that's exactly what it will be like in the real world.

i liked the steam punk ascetic a lot more a few years ago and even then more for the redesign of objects more than clothing. now it seems to be a competition to see who can glue the most random crap on to their clothes or person. some of those people looked more like first generation borgs than anything else.

gshepnyc: I know people are weary of steampunk but I don't find it anymore tiresome than that heavily armored supersoldier aesthetic that comes out of gaming and animation, the one with gigantic feet and legs and head hidden between armored shoulders and always carrying a cannon for a gun or a sword with a blade the size of a surfboard. Sick to death of that.


Where is this occuring in the fashion industry or real life military? Would be interesting to see some examples. Or are you just referring to video games/toys/etc.?

Either way:

What happens when you cross Steampunk with Tolkien.

Granted, it was a buggy game(taken care of by patches later), but it was still fun.

Ah the game where one of the plots was of human women being kidnapped and raped by ogres to make hybrid babies, also the game that let Scotts and Kiwis fark a sheep (IIRC the sheep was the best lay in the game too o.O).

That's not made for public. That's made for when you decide you want to much on Lindsay Lohan's poonanny. You never know when that occasion may arise.

People who do things without imagination or effort will always exist, but it doesn't change the fact that the nature of Steampunk allows for some very cool craftsmanship and interesting designs.

My 15 yr old daughter built really amazing expanding wings last year from her own design. It was a great experience for her and really a wonderful costume in the end.

I'd love to post a pic of it, but I know how Fark goes...

StrangeQ: What if the Victorians had access to digital technology?

Steampunk is stupid because the very premise of it makes absolutely no sense. You're not going to make a farking microcircuit out of brass, polished wood and patent leather. The very technologies that make the modern world possible are exactly the same ones the ones in steampunk obsolete and rediculous.

First world hipster problems:
Oh woe is me, where will I ever find wood with the proper brain and texture for my retro-chic laptop?

Real world problems:
I wonder if I can eat wood? Could it be food?

Steampunk, and steampunk fashion, is a condiment, not a main course.

It's fine in small doses if it's used to augment (rather than define) your appearance, but going overboard is just ridiculous.

You wouldn't eat a bowl of ketchup, would you? Then put down the goggles...

This is an authoritarian law I could get behind. Unless you're in this "hotness level", you cannot dress like this. If you are, you are required to dress like this.
