I’d like to thank everyone who entered the contest. I was so impressed by everyone’s ideas and creations.
Think Geek donated some of the prizes–and I thank them for their awesomeness.
Here are the winners!
Steampunk Goody Bag
Susan–weaponry from The Rescues of Rosie Crumb
Here is “the weaponry used by my amazing heroine Rosie Crumb in my series of steampunk inspired books called The Rescues of Rosie Crumb. Rosie is a unique heroine: feisty, feminine and fantastic at gunplay. Hopelessly in love with a local farmer who was a hired gun in his previous life, daughter to the billionaire Baron of Boron, this motherless young woman has learned to take care of herself and still finds time to travel the country rescuing and being rescued. Her adventures take her from a finishing school in Boston, MA to the perilous world of the chinese underworld in San Francisco. Along the way she is able to manufacture some interesting gadgets that come in handy during her adventures. Saving runaway horses, trains and children are all in a days work for this western heroine and until she lands the man of her dreams she will keep on with her wild ways.”
Teresa Luong– parachute lantern
“This is a miniature…parachute lantern. You can hang it around your neck. So, literally it’s a necklace! Just flick the switch at the bottom and the flame flickers on. It can’t burn you because there is a transparent cover around the flame. You can’t feel any of the heat either. The cover keeps it cool. It’s a pretty powerful lantern despite the flame size. You can use it as a torch to light your way through darkness or just for decorating. ”
Captain Jules’ Extraordinary Telescope Ring
Jack Baillot—prescription googles & iPhone case
“I was online one day when I saw a Steampunk laptop. Since then I’ve been determined to turn all my electronics Steampunk. I don’t yet have covers for my laptop and Nook to try it on, but I did for my Ipod. Therefore, I glued gears and a clock face to the back of the cover. I don’t suppose everyone will agree, but I feel that all Steampunk users need a lot of clocks. Not just any clocks, but ones that are spinning with a wonderful array of gears.
The goggles I made in a copy to the ones worn by the pilots in my books. This, however, I even better then theirs as these have my own eye glass prescription in them. All I need now is the airplane so I can try them out.”
Mindy — Osculater Prognosticator
“How many times has a woman (or man) kissed a frog instead of their prince/princess? The Osculater Prognosticator eliminates the guesswork out of who is kissworthy of YOU! You simply enter a room of people at a party, let’s say. You take out your handy dandy Osculater Prognosticator and press the key button on the machine. First a white light comes on to scan you, press the key button again and then a solid red light will come on with flashing red lips just to let everyone know YOU are looking for the right person. You scan the people at the party with the Osculater Prognosticator until the solid red light starts blinking and the person your machine is pointing at is your PERFECT MATCH. The gage/grip also gives you a visual percentage of the match between YOU and you perfect partner. No more guess work & kissing Mr. (or Ms.) ICK.”
Kelli Collins- Steampunk version of the Bladerunner blaster (made by her hubby, she said she didn’t need a prize, but I’m going to give her one because it’s so gosh darn cool –she can always give the prize to him)
“…I thought you might like to see this Steampunk version of the Bladerunner blaster. It’s the hubby’s all-time fave movie and weapon. The blaster was made by him (photo taken by me). All hand-fashioned, nothing machined.”
Grand Prize – ARC and Innocent Darkness prize pack
Stephanie Trujillo – Frosting Gun
“…A girl with steam punk attire holding a cupcake laser/frosting gun.”
