Question.. Does our M.U.T. (Mechanical Universal Tracker) count as an 'young air pirate dog?' - Instead of an 'old sea dog?'

I got to go to the Iowa City area con, and there was a steampunk theme. My pic is from there, as a Merry Ray consultant.. because Beauty hurts!

This was my first steampunk event ever. I think I did ok, but I would like some constructive criticism.

Thank you for the compliment. And we're not done with M.U.T. but he wound up getting so much attention we got asked so much to put up an FB page for him so we did.

We want to get some time to do more work on him before we can get out and get our 'steampunk on'.

Our outfits were put together sooooo quick so we also want to spend some times with that as well. Thank you for that compliment as well.

BTW. I saw your pic. I like. I love the fabrics. Nice and 'rich' looking. :unsure:

Hey, Pete. Are these your younglings? Nifty.

That sure is a pretty 4-4-0 with a balloon stack there, too.

I'd like to try out steampunk, but sadly, i've got other things on my agenda and i don't know any good steampunk places or events, though i have a coat that'd probably work.

Forgot how awesome this thread is...have killed an hour at work looking at the pics and taking notes! Couple of pics below from a shoot last month...Steampunk is nearer and dearer to my heart than ever. Hope it sticks around for a long, long time.

Well first off, here is a picture showing the leather Flight Helmet and goggles that I made for Martie's Christmass present...(It is also wired for sound, there is an MP3 Player in the pouch in back and the earphones work...)

I just finished the corset for Martie.... I used some upholstery fabric for the outside and brown canvas for the lining. and for the boning, I used zip ties cut to length. I didn't have any eyelets, so I had to sew them all by hand ....

So here she is in her new corset,(now she has cleavage...she's realy happy about that..... :P ) and wearing her leather Flight helmet she got for Christmass and her raygun from last Christmass...

I really like the Zip Tie boneing idea too - very clever.

When I went to Jo-Anns for boning, it was really expensive, so I did a web-search for alternatives....

I cut off the lock part of 20" zip ties, and slightly melted the ends to round them, and they worked great.

The only problem is that Martie wants me to make her more corsets for different occasions :P

This is a link to the corset pattern page....

And this is a really good vidio tutorial on how to make a corset.

We use this at work to support telephone cables: http://www.stanleysupplyservices.com/product-group.aspx?id=9111. It's 1/2 wide and stronger than a zip tie. It comes in a roll so it could be cut (with good scissors) to length and the ends can be easily trimmed. I don't know how the price would compare to regular zip ties but it might be better for custom corsets.
