    smile Steampunk Week (Sept 28 - Oct 4)

    Steampunk Week

    By Kyle Cassidy, taken from Wikipedia

    “The machine does not isolate man from the great problems of nature but plunges him more deeply into them.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    From September 28th to October 4th or so, dust off all your old Victorian clothing and grab your Sky-hook; it's time for Steampunk Week! This week is for showing, requesting and discussing avatars for Steampunk week, which was just recently elected official next theme week in the Playground.

    If you have a creative twist on the theme, that's fantastic!

    Have fun!

    but it was in it that He mirrored the sky.

    Well, I need ideas or inspiration for an avatar. Something to do with stringed instruments. Are there any iconic steampunk musician things that I can draw inspiration from?

    Well, hopefully these help, but they are a few google image links of Steampunk musicians. For inspiration. Hopefully it is a decent enough range of looks.

    Actually, that's really helpful.

    Thanks. Should finish an idea soon.

    I haven't changed my avatar since victorian week, so it kinda feels like things are starting to come full circle. I'm torn between sticking some gears on it, or just leaving it as is, and changing my avatar after the week.

    I changed his coat to look a bit more Victorian and I admit I recycled the goggles I'd made for my toon. Does that work for you?

    I know this is not going to be easy, but can someone make a steampunk-ified version of my current avatar? Y'know, using steam- or clock-tech as a theme instead of magic. It should be identifiably the same person, but it doesn't have to be in the same pose. However, the table should still be in the picture somewhere.

    Is this a request thread too? If so,

    Is there anyone willing to do a steampunk stormtrooper?

    Thank you for that awesome avatar. As I looked at it, I realized one thing. It has no gears...

    Could you by any chance at a misty looking grayish/black gear or set of gears in the background?

    Is Steampunk an aesthetic? An ethos? A genre with some associated symbols? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Also, I wanted to contribute to the conversation rather than just ask for an avatar. Which I would also like to do. If anyone feels like making a steampunky uniformed Mindflayer.

    I suppose it comes down to personal preference. Personally, I'd rather the gears served a purpose.

    Also, here's a steampunk mindflayer for you.

    Hmmm, I never thought about it.

    In SciFi dragons are too big to fly. In fantasy, dragons have wings, and magic allows them to fly. In Steampunk, dragons have wings, but are too big to fly on their own, so you make a balloon powered bicycle so your dragon can fly.
