Today we welcome Brenda Sue of B’sue Boutiques who’s jewelry supply store not only has everything you need to make neat Steampunk jewelry, but she also has loads of instructional videos for people like me who love to make things, but in all honesty can’t craft their way out of a cardboard box. 
 
STEAMPUNK JEWELRY MADE SIMPLE:  Breaking It Down to Cogs and Gears
By B’Sue
 
Love the Steampunk lifestyle?   Well as this blog has aptly demonstrated, you need the right glad (or perhaps ‘mad’) rags for your look!   And as every fashionista knows—whatever style genre he/she chooses—you need the right accessories.   Jewelry come first for me!   And the fact is, you can learn to make your own Steampunk jewelry, thus reflecting your own perfect Steampunk sensibilities.
 
Check out this sweet Steampunk pendant I made:
 
 
Gotta tell you, there are no hard techniques involved in this piece.   Let me tell you how!  I started with a luggage tag pendant made in the Victorian style, available here:  http://www.bsueboutiques.com/shop/index.php?keywords=fig39   
 
As this piece is raw brass, you’ll want to patina it.  One fast way is simply to clean the brass by washing in hot, soapy water…all raw brass comes with traces of machine oil on it, so gotta do it.    Dry completely, then torch it.   All you need it is a little creme brulee torch and a soldering block.   Torch it til it gets toasty or turns dark.   OR, you can try my vinegar/salt/patina method, which you can watch me do at YouTube right here:
 
 
When you have achieved the color you want on the brass, simply seal it with Renaissance Wax.  Then you will want to add your embellishments.   I added a pie crust bezel from the Bezels, Mounts and Frames section of our website, found here: http://www.bsueboutiques.com/bezels_mounts_frames.shtml    This is a great bezel to build with as it is textural and deep.  Into it, I glued a vintage soda cap, upside down, with the cork still in it.  
 
Into that cap, I poured a bit of mixed ICE RESIN.   For tips on working with Ice Resin, check out this video:
 
I also inlaid a circlet ring found at our website, as well as a tiny propeller.  These propellers REALLY SPIN!
 
The trick is to pour only enough resin to inlay the bottom of the propeller so that it still spins.  This one does!
 
The actual pendant is available at B’sue Boutiques right here:
 
How would you finish it?  Would you turn it around and dangle something from the hole and make it a heavy, cool looking brooch?   Or would you make it a necklace by adding beads, leather thong, old cord and maybe even safety pin or garter clip connectors?
 
Here’s a funky Steampunk necklace I made with our Steampunk components from B’sue Boutiques and scrabble tiles:
 
 
Come on over to B’sue Boutiques and check the place out!  We have a large, comprehensive Steampunk Jewelry Making Section broken down into watch parts, cogs and wheels, wings, keys, and all the components you need—-easy to find! http://www.bsueboutiques.com  
 
And…here is a very popular video we made at You Tube that will demonstrate how to make an easy Steampunk ring: 
 
Another master of  Steampunk jewelry making is Harry Wood of OSCAR CROW: http://www.etsy.com/shop/oscarcrow   Visit Harry for great ideas and great ready-made jewelry at low prices.   Here is a very cool pectoral he made recently:
 
 
And for more Steampunk Eye Candy, why not visit our Steampunk Gallery?   These are pieces shared with me by visitors to my B’sue Boutiques Facebook Fan Page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bsue-Boutiques/123052674404364, and entered into an archived album at the B’sue Boutiques website.
 
I hope you feel enabled and inspired…..because who knows?  Maybe YOU are the next radical Steampunk jewelry designer!  Soon they may be beating a path to YOUR door!

Grab your goggles and pumpkin-shaped candy buckets, the Steamed! Halloween Author Invasion has arrived! Are you ready to be invaded?

We have an amazing lineup for you this week Stop by every day to read a new Halloween-themed blog post and a new chance to win a special “treat”:

October 24 — Young Adult Author Tera Lynn Childs
October 25 — Contemporary Romance Author Charlene Sands
October 26 — Young Adult Author Inara Scott
October 27 — Paranormal Romance Author Jacquelyn Frank
October 28 — Young Adult Author Simone Elkeles

To kick off our Halloween Author Invasion we welcome young adult author Tera Lynn Childs who’s latest series is about mermaids. She’ll be giving away a copy of her book Forgive My Fins.

Tera Lynn Childs is the award-winning author of the mythology-based Oh. My. Gods. and Goddess Boot Camp, the mermaid tales Forgive My Fins and Fins Are Forever (coming June 28, 2011) and a new trilogy about monster-hunting descendants of Medusa (Fall 2011). Tera lives nowhere in particular and has spent time fleeing hurricanes, making character profiles on MySpace, blogging on her own and with the Buzz Girls, and writing wherever she can find a comfy chair and a steady stream of caffeinated beverages.

Mer World Halloween

As the human world prepares for the most exciting of holidays, there are Halloween preparations taking place under the sea, too. Mer grown-ups are creating haunted sea houses and organizing big spooky parties. Mer kiddies are planning their costumes and getting giddy at the prospect of a trick-or-treating sugar rush. Although both the mer and human worlds celebrate this holiday, there are some distinct differences in the festivities.

Costumes

While some little mer girls dress in traditional human costumes, like witches and fairies, and mer boys enjoy pretending to be ghosts and superheroes, there are some unique costumes in the underwater world. A favorite for mer girls is the Oceanista doll costume, the mer world equivalent of a Barbie doll. They might also go as an octopus, a parrotfish, or a clump of seaweed. For mer boys, they like scary costumes as much as their human counterparts. Popular mer boy costumes include great white sharks, jellyfish, and the sea god Poseidon. Among the most creative costumes are the mer boy who dressed as a shipwreck and the mer girl who went as the Marianas Trench.

Jack-O’-Lanterns

Since pumpkins don’t grow underwater, mer folk have come up with a clever alternative for making their jack-o’-lanterns. In kitchens through the underwater world, palace chefs and home cooks alike stir up a mixture of sugar paste, ground seaweed, and orange food coloring to create an edible, moldable, carvable clay. Once the clay is formed into a pumpkin shape—either freehand or using a mold readily available at any underwater kitchen supply store—and allowed to harden, it perfectly resembles a pumpkin. A scary face is carved into the sugar pumpkin, bioluminescent lighting creates an inner glow, and then, when the festivities are over, the family breaks the pumpkin apart for an extra sugary treat.

Candy

Like on land, the real appeal of an underwater Halloween is the candy haul that mer kids gather on a long night of trick or treating. Most land-made goodies would dissolve away in water—exceptions include cinnamon fire balls and those gold foil-wrapped pirate coins—so the mer world has a special selection of candy for their loot bags. One of the oldest is sugared seahorses—not made from real seahorses, of course, but from sugar paste in seahorse shaped molds. There are also gummy jellyfish, mini Mer Magic candy bars, and rock sugar seashells. But the whirlaway favorite, time and again, is the line of collectible candy sushi. The varieties vary every year and at the end of the night, every trick or treater has to make a tough decision: save it, trade it, or eat it.

So you see, if you ever find yourself in a mer kingdom for Halloween, the celebrations will feel both familiar and foreign. But now you’re prepared! You can get even more insight into the mer world by winning (and reading) my book, Forgive My Fins, about the half-human princess of the underwater kingdom of Thalassinia. To be entered to win a signed copy, either tell me what costume would you choose for a mer Halloween or which mer candy you’d be most excited to try—and you can’t use any of the examples I’ve given above. Happy Halloween and spooky good luck!

Hugs,
TLC

Today we welcome author Philippa Ballantine!

Philippa Ballantine is a fantasy writer hailing from Wellington, New Zealand. In the coming year she will have three books hitting the real and virtual shelves. The first of which a supernatural fantasy (containing the odd airship and feisty heroine), GEIST from Ace Books will available in late October 2010—just in time for Halloween.

The First Ladies of Steam

By Philippa Ballantine

We often discuss steam, but today I’m taking the chance to talk about some punks to go with them.

This last weekend was the 117th year of woman’s suffrage in New Zealand—and of all the excellent things about my country that’s the one I am most proud of.

Yep, New Zealand women have been accused of being bossy, stroppy and overly independent. (Actually we have been accused of running the country—which we have done a couple of time.) However all of these are excellent attributes for a steampunk woman.

True, there were millions of proper women in Victorian and Edwardian society, drinking tea, and staying in their place—but we also shouldn’t forget that there were plenty of the other kind of women—the kind that risked their position in society, their health and their lives to go against the grain. What’s more punk than that?

When I was at WorldCon in Melbourne, I was on a steampunk panel—one on the future of the movement. It was argued that the genre doesn’t represent the true terribleness that did exist in that time period. While costumers make goggles, and authors write about airships, it was suggested we are largely ignoring the racism, colonialism and sexism that existed in that time. While there are plenty of stories to tell, and issues to explore as the genre continues to grow, there is some truth in that statement.

Now I admit—the kind of steampunk I like is fun. As the Brits would say, I enjoy a jolly good romp—but that doesn’t mean we can’t inject a little education into those very same stories.

The second book of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences I am writing with Tee Morris, is going to revolve to a large extent around the suffrage movement. While our suffragettes will be a little better equipped than their real life counterparts, their spirit will be drawn from the same place. (Still, it’s interesting to imagine what they could have done with the odd automaton or raygun to further their cause).

I am having great old time using actual suffragettes for the basis of our story—two in particular are loads of fun to give the steampunk treatment to.

Kate Sheppard is so famous in my home country she is on the ten-dollar bill—not bad for a chick that spent her adult life fighting to change the system. This charismatic woman was a powerhouse of energy and the leader of the suffrage movement in New Zealand. Without her the whole thing would have struggled to wrestle the vote from the hands of men. As it was it took three separate petitions and constant work to get the job done. Her determination and energy is something I feel like I am honouring—but then I give her a clock-work eye and ordnance system to go with it. (There is something awfully appealing about the gentile and lovely Kate with her own steampowered weaponry to really ram home the point to menfolk).

One suffragette from Britain is someone I might be afraid to give such devices to.

Lilian Lenton- oh my! If you have an impression that suffragettes were gentile ladies, who sat around drinking tea and painting signs, then you are in for a shock. This girl was born to shake things up. If I could steal anyone’s Wikipedia entry it would be hers.

…dancer, suffragist, arsonist and winner of a French Red Cross…

Quite a set of accomplishments! This lady was known for two things: setting fire to buildings, and making daring escapes from custody. The buildings she burnt were things like gazebos in the public gardens, but her escapes from home detention were nothing short of brilliant. The house where Lilian was under house arrest (recovering from the horrific practice of force feeding) was guarded by two police officers. A whole posse of suffragettes entered the house, then all dressed the same as her rushed out and scattered up the street taking her with them. Pure theatrical brilliance.

I mean what writer wouldn’t grab that as inspiration?

And what better basis for our female steampunk aviators, inventors and adventurers than the suffragettes? If we teach a little, or add a remembrance of how things actually were for women in the nineteenth century then all the better. If steampunk is a history that never was, then such people and such stories deserve a place in it.

Sure I am giving the suffragettes a little update, but their spirit and adventures remain the same. I like to think at least some of them (Hey Lilian!) would have approved—and I for one am dying to discover just what they would have accomplished with the right steampunk gadgets!

Today is Thursday–and that means we have a special guest. Today we welcome author Pip Ballantine who’d going to dish about her recent trip to Balticon.

Philippa Ballantine is a writer and podcaster from Wellington, New
Zealand. She is a published author, with a supernatural fantasy, Geist
coming out in October this year with Ace Books. She and her co-writer Tee Morris have a steampunk series the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences coming out with Eos in Summer 2011. She also looks great in a bowler hat.

Balticon, Maryland’s premiere Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention, is where a good head of steam can be found building up, Gentle Readers.

The steampunk movement at Balticon has been growing for years, but 2010 seemed to be a breakout with plenty of costumes, panel discussions, a new player in the Dealers Room and two big announcements.

Firstly the costumes were out in force, obviously worked on well into the night with the help of gaslight and unbridled creativity. Pith helmets, goggles and brass were in evidence in the hallways pretty much all the time. The New Media party held on Saturday was a fine example. Dragon Moon Press author PG Holyfield came as one of Tesla’s Rangers, a sterling example of the well-heeled gentleman out of the Wild West. Renaissance swashbuckler and author Tee Morris, usually playing the tunes in a privateer’s best, sported a Jared Axelrod original (more on this fine gent later), a pin stripe woolsuit given an incredible steampunk makeover.

A staple of fashion, be it the Victorian Era or Carrie Bradshaw’s contemporary New York, is to accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. Balticon’s Dealers’ Room had a newcomer catering to the steampunk crowd. The Steampunk Funk Bizarre debuted with a rip-roaring trade in top hats, bowlers, a variety of goggles and some really beautiful watches. Lord Montague J Fromage might well have had something to do with it. Sporting a beautifully waxed and curled beard, Lord Fromage had the most delightful French accent (I am still not sure if it was real or an affectation), and really took care of his customers over the weekend. I know a number of my friends bought something from him.

On the literary front, the hot new steampunk author Gail Carriger was in attendance, flying in from San Francisco. If you haven’t read her Parasol Protectorate series, you really should. A fun read, with vampires and werewolves added to the steampunk mix. There were also two stand-out announcements, and one of them involves your Humble Writer, Gentle Readers.

If you don’t know the afore-mentioned Jared Axelrod, then you soon will. This writer, artisan, and podcaster extraordinaire (Voice of Free Planet X, Aliens You Will Meet) is embedded in steampunk (Seriously if you go to Wikipedia, Jared’s face will stare back at you!),, and those attending his high tea party knew he had a new podcast premiering. We were anxious to hear all about it. With wickedly beautiful assistants serving tea and danties to the packed room, we were all treated to the first episode of Tales from the Flying City. Jared (clad in the costume of his Flying Corp), known for being salwart and unmoving in his composure, couldn’t hold onto his announcement. The podcast was actually a prequel for the graphic novel The Battle of Blood and Ink, coming out in Fall 2011 from Tor Books.

Needless to say all decorum was lost as we all cheered for this.

The other announcement was a little more personal. Tee Morris and I hosted a second reading of our co-authored steampunk project. It’s a tale that was originally going to be podcast for pay, but ended up through a series of weird occurrences (please to pardon that pun, Gentle Readers) turning into a novel. Tee topped off his Jared Axelrod original costume with a bowler hat and mad goggles from the Steampunk Funk Bizarre, while I buckled into a corset, hitched my skirt with some skirt-lifters and wore my brand new purple top hat. Our Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences novels are set in late nineteenth century London, and revolve around a secret agent from New Zealand (rather like myself in some respects!) who has been demoted, after a couple of unfortunate explosive incidents, to the Ministry Archives. Here she butts heads with the Archivist as both of them set out to solve cold cases buried by the Ministry. It’s a huge, fun romp, and as an author it was nice to pack a room and have them giggling along with us.

Even better was to announce our two book deal with Eos coming in Summer 2011.

Yes, I confess, I drank champagne after that.

Balticon’s Steampunk Spectacular ended on Monday with the three of us — Jared, Tee and myself — for the panel ‘What’s Steamy in New Media’- a panel dedicated to steampunk. While this day tends to be the day people pack up and leave, a packed room spoke volumes to us on how much interest there is in this movement. I bought along my ray gun and with it in front of me, had a really good time. The audience interaction made the panel a lively one. We talked about what people love about steampunk—the general consensus was fun, a sense of wonder, being able to have a relationship with machinery, and the joy of messing around with history. We discussed which was everyone’s favourite steampunk story, and though Tee mentioned League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (the movie), he managed to walk out alive.

Jared made a fine point that steampunk is evolving, and that everyone has a different take on it. Soulless is not the same as Boneshaker or Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. Some are making romps, some romances, some serious discussions on man and machine. What secures all these works, and the genre itself, is not brass bolts, cogs, or clockwork gears, but a delightful wide-eyed wonder at a world that could have been. I believe this is what fuels the steampunk movement.

That, and men in bowlers. Let’s face it: Nothing says sexy like a dandy in a bowler and goggles.

Today we welcome back O.M. Grey, author of Avalon Revisited. She’s going to review The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker for us.

The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker by Leanna Renee Hieber

There are few books that captivate my attention so completely that I’m not only so enthralled with the story that I can’t put the book down, but where I’m also so emotionally wrapped up in the characters that I deeply feel every ounce of their emotions. Where I cry and laugh and even scold them out loud. The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker by Leanna Renee Hieber is one of those books.

It’s about a young girl named Percy who is brilliant in mind and rather bizarre in form. She keeps her deathly pale skin and long white hair as covered as possible, always hiding away to avoid ridicule. Although brilliant, she does have trouble with one subject: mathematics. Her professor, Alexi Rychman, begins to tutor her in the subject. He, unbeknownst to her at the time, is the leader of The Guard, a group of people who are possessed by muses and other supernatural creatures giving them the power to keep order between this world and the Whisper World, a Hades-like underworld. This is all based in Greek Mythology which Ms. Hieber brilliantly weaves into her Gothic tale.

Once hooked, I quite literally could not put the book down. I had to keep reading to experience the love between Alexi and Percy unfold. That ever-forbidden love between professor and student. That line that blurs between duty and ethics because of what the heart and soul desire, and in this case, fate demands. Percy, who had lived a live in a convent because of her shocking, ghost-like pale appearance, was so very lonely that she never knew the kind touch of anyone, let alone a man. Her life was one where if someone were to just touch her hand or hold her to dance was just a thrill beyond anything she had ever dared to dream. Then she meets her Alexi, professor and math tutor. Ms. Hieber lyrically describes their unfolding love and Percy’s longing to not only fit in to some small part of society, but to also be loved, body and mind and soul. It was all beyond Percy’s wildest dreams.

There was a particularly poignant scene where Percy, who can see and hear ghosts, watches a ghostly couple meet over their graves and waltz on their wedding anniversary. My heart ached for her as she watched this couple, now long dead, still meet and celebrate their love. A love she was certain she would never know.

This book is the quintessential Gothic Romance. If you are a fan of Gothic Romance, Steampunk, or Gaslight Romance, I strongly suggest you pick up The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker and follow immediately with its sequel The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker. Leanna Renee Hieber makes it impossible for the reader to do anything but completely fall, head over proverbial heels, into her darkly beautiful world of Gothic Romance, ubiquitous ghosts, and discovered dreams.

We’d like to welcome back Emilie P. Bush, author of Chenda and the Airship Brofman. Today she’s going to talk about her recent trip to the Steampunk World’s Fair.

Here in the Deep South, we have a quaint phrase for something that has just a little too much going on: It looks like 10 pounds of flour in a five pound sack. Sometimes we don’t say flour, but rather something a bit less… genteel.

The phrase only comes to mind in connection with Steampunk World’s Fair, in so much as this event had SO much going on, it trickled out of the ballrooms and meeting spaces, through the corridors and onto the Springtime New Jersey grass. Yes, it took SPWF to draw this southern girl to New Jersey. I know. I’m shocked, too. But I have underestimated the allure of the Garden State until now.

Steampunk World’s Fair offered a broad variety of entertainment – from the simple homey mandolin strumming of Matt DeBlass to the full on driving rhythms of Voltaire, the music never stopped. I, voted class band geek in high school, was especially tickled with Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band. Very entertaining as they wandered through the hotel.

Mix and mingle was the way of it throughout the fair. The performers rubbed elbows with the fans around the clock. Professor Elemental, visiting from across the pond, basically stood in the hotel’s lobby, chatting up huge number’s of fans and offering to sing bits of your favorite raps! Also a delightful and friendly chap all around, Jake Von Slatt offered up detailed guided tour of his converted school bus.

Writers flocked to the Library of Lost Literature, hosted by Quirk Books and Weird Tales Magazine. I got to know Ben Winters, co-writer of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, and the forthcoming Android Karenina, as well as Leanna Renee Hieber, author of the bestselling 2009 Victorian fantasy novelThe Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker. The library’s simple plan to deliver brief author reading on the hour every hour was simply brilliant. It was like going to a fine chocolate shop and being able to taste all the delectable delights straight from the candy man’s hand.

Let’s not forget the shopping. Merchants were EVERYWHERE – All the first floor hotel rooms (where shoppers looked past end tables and mattresses to examine merchandise), around most of the ballrooms and throughout the hotel courtyard. I’m not sure I even got to them all!

Before I leave you with the impression it was all fun and games, there were serious activities as well, all of which were very well attended. Social Issues in Steampunk, a panel discussion on race, gender, class and ethnicity in Steam, was unexpectedly well attended – tripling the number of available seats. I too had a crush of visitors for my Steampunk Persona Workshop, expecting 25 and, in the end, entertaining 70 souls.

Whisper Merlot – SPWF’s Programming manager, did an excellent job keeping half of the canaries flying at all times on the over-loaded airship (pardon me for mincing that old joke). Originally planned as a 500 attendee event, the final participant count topped 3300.

I look forward to next year, and more excitement and musical adventure, but in the end, I have just one more expression, this time from Jaws: I think we’re gonna need a bigger boat.

E.P.B

We had the fabulous OM Grey on last month, now we have a Visiting Lolita who’d going to review Avalon Revisited for us.

Candace runs Candace’s Book Blog and is an avid reader and Steampunk fan.

Description of Avalon Revisited by OM Grey:

Arthur has made his existence as a vampire bearable for over three hundred years by immersing himself in blood and debauchery. Aboard an airship gala, he meets Avalon, an aspiring vampire slayer who sparks fire into Arthur’s shriveled heart. Together they try to solve the mystery of several horrendous murders on the dark streets of London. Cultures clash and pressures rise in this sexy Steampunk Romance.

You ever read a book and when you finish you feel as though your home? That you found your genre? Your niche? You found a book that just really ‘hits the spot’? That was Avalon Revisited for me. I’ve read some Steampunk. I love historical fiction in itself, but throw in paranormal AND gadgets and it’s just taken up a notch further. Gail Carriger’s books really introduced me to Steampunk, though when I think back I realize I’ve read Steampunk, I just never put the Steampunk name to it. Once I did I found I wanted to know everything about it!

So Avalon Revisited was one of those books that as soon as I heard of it I knew I wanted to read it. It took me awhile before I put in my order in to amazon but I started the book the day it arrived. I’m very glad I did as it was the perfect book for my mood.

It’s a nice quick read, but yet not TOO quick. Meaning there was plenty of story there without becoming tedious. I love how it was put together and how the Steampunk aspect came into play. Lots of mention of gadgets and a nice little ride on an airship made this one unique to me. I’m a huge paranormal freak so the combination of two of my favorite things came together perfectly. I don’t think I really was expecting this one to be so good. The characters were well developed and lovable (though I’m not sure she really wanted Arthur to be lovable exactly…) and the story flowed very nicely. I was able to picture the characters, the scenery and the time period quite well and I loved Arthur’s history and his ability to love after he was sure he couldn’t love again. I really loved the humor that was thrown in as well. Some of the things Arthur says (or thinks) really gave me a chuckle.

So not to say there weren’t any mistakes, as I did catch a few, but they just weren’t important. They didn’t bother me or take away from the story. One thing that I didn’t love was the end wrapped up a bit abruptly, in my opinion. It wasn’t a huge issue for me though and I really hope that Grey plans to continue these characters in another book. Overall this book far exceeded my expectations and made me want to find every paranormal Steampunk book out there. Luckily I have a couple of other Steampunk novels here waiting to be read.

Great job O.M. Grey!
