You may have noticed that I’ve been making a bunch of steampunk stuff lately. If you haven’t noticed, go and notice! I’ll wait.

The reason for the slightly soft focus on this shot is that Tom shot it on a 1947 Kodak Box Brownie. The man is dedicated.










































Done? Good. ┬áSteampunk as a subculture is on the rise at the moment, and there are events springing up all over the place! In the merry month of may, I have two events. Allow me to give you the details (or “deets”, as I believe the kids are saying).

The first, on May 11th, is called SinS, and is deliciously local to me- it’s just down the coast near Looe. There’s an event on Facebook HERE and a website HERE and also you can click HERE to get free cookies. I’m just kidding. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. Anyway, I’m really excited about this event! Partly because it’s so close to me, and partly because it’s so close to the sea, and I love the sea. Good old sea. Also, by May it’s going to be gloriously sunny every day!

The second event is the weekend after, on May 18th. It’s the Market of Curiosities at the Frome Steampunk Extravaganza! I’ll be honest- I’d never heard of Frome before I heard of this event. Now I have, and my life is the richer! It looks like it’s going to be quite something!

So to sum up, that’s SinS one weekend, then Frome, then the next day I have a triathlon. Good times!
