Steampunk Night in Stockholm

Attention all Steampunkers in Stockholm!

The Science fiction Bookstore (Science Fictionbokhandeln) will be holding a Steampunk Night in April! The date is currently not set in stone, but it will probably be on the 18th or 19th of April.

This is because of the release of the Swedish translation of the book series Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger. Carriger will visit the bookstore and among book signing and interview, there will also be activities and discussions about steampunk. Eventually Carriger will also visit Gothenburgh and/or Malmö, but nothing is decided about that.

I haven’t read the book series yet, but I have been curious about it for quite some time now. As soon as I gain more time for free time reading I’ll probably attack it 🙂

In the meantime I think it’s great that they have decided to hold a theme night like this, and if enough people show up, I’m sure they will have it again ^^

I’ll come with more info on the Steampunk Night as soon as I know anything else, promise!

Xx, Arathin

Steamy Shop Tips

Again it’s been quite some time since our last post. Sorry for that, guys, but we have been busy bees as of late. Not only are there studies and work to take care of, we are also in the midst of planning the reset of a Steampunk LARP. If you’ve been following this blog you’d know that we last summer attempted to set one up, but due to lack of time and other things we had to cancel it. Now we are trying to set it up again and hopefully we’ll be able to pull it off this time 🙂 It will be the first proper Steampunk LARP (at least I think it will be..) in Stockholm, Sweden, so we’re quite excited indeed ^^

In the meantime I thought I’d give you some tips on awesome designers – both fashion and accessories.

Clockwork Couture – Gorgeous designs and accessories, American brand

SkinzNhydez – Absolutely wonderful leather designs with a distinct Steampunk feel

Catherinette Rings – Jewellery and sculptures, Steampunk, SteamGoth and Cthulhu

Sarah Burchill, who has two shops on Etsy: one for metalworks and for glassworks – All handmade, there is probably nothing this artist can’t do. And her glass tentacles are lovely, the one shown below is my own ^^

Imperial Fiddlesticks Emporium – Unique handmade hats and corsages, the link goes to her Facebook Page

Steampunk Couture – Handmade designs, one of my favourite places to go to for inspiration. The picture is borrowed from her Facebook Page
