Just a little update..

Hi, everyone!

Sorry that we haven’t been online much to give you news and such from the world of steampunk, but as usual we have been very busy in our ordinary lives. Varga have been busy with her LARP that is about to go off in just a few weeks. My has been away from the city and is now focusing on her upcoming studies, as am I. I’m turning from part-time French to full-time archival science, a big turn around but also a fun one.

The biggest news so far, though, is that August 20th  presented itself to be the birthday of one of the greatest authors ever (at least in my mind): Howard Phillips Lovecraft. This year it marked the 122 anniversary of his birth, and I, for one, celebrated that with reading some of my favourite novels of his 🙂

Next year I’ll bake a Cthulhu cake, I promise!

Xx, Arathin


Updates & Snowglobes!

Wow, even though we don’t update this blog often enough, we still have some good traffic here! Thanks a bunch everyone for your support! ❤

As always, we’ve been busy bees with this and that. There’s been school, work, photoshoots (me and Varga are models while My tends to stand behind the camera) and lots of planning to get our LARP started. If you’ve ever tried to set a LARP up, you know the amount of work we’re currently facing with food, intrigues & schemes, characters, location, histories, outfits, rules and, of course, money. Being the Association’s treasurer I’ve got the job to keep track of where the money’s coming and going and who has paid for what. Not all that easy when your bank has decided to not give you all the information about payers at once >_<

But this entry was not intended for me to rant on things you’re probably not interested in, sorry for that 😛

Actually I wanted to tip you off about a designer who makes the most gorgeous steampunk snowglobes I’ve ever seen! If you haven’t seen her yet, go check her Etsy out: Camryn Forrest Design

Have Your Say!

Hi everyone, sorry for the extremely dry blog period, but we have all been very busy the past few months. Some of us have been on summer vacation and therfore haven’t had any time to write anything. Personally, I’ve been engaged in a work internship that lasted up until the beginning of this month and our dearest Varga went away for two months to work full time in Austria.
Today we are all home, but we are still heavily engaged in our different lives and so it’s quite hard to find time to take care of this blog.

Also, keeping a steampunk blog isn’t the easiest thing to do when you live in a country where the steampunk culture still is pretty underground. But we will try to keep up the good work and supply you with what we can find around the web, physical stores and whatnots 🙂

But I thought I’d let you readers have your say in all of this as well. It is you who make us want to keep this blog going and so it is only fair that we listen to you. What is it that YOU want us to write about? More literature, fashion, home decoration, culture, events? Anything not mentioned?

This blog lives because of you, so speak up and let us know what you want 🙂

Xx, Arathin – one of the blog keepers
