Including my ill-fated hairspray technique and other resources.
Your gun has been primed and painted and is looking pretty good. But we don’t want a good looking gun! This is steampunk. We want something that looks like it’s been around the block a few times.
Welcome back! You’ve disassembled your gun and gotten it ready for painting. Now it’s time for the fun stuff.
So I hear you want to make a steampunk weapon! You’ve come to the right place. It’s really not very difficult at all, even if you have never done it before. Better yet, you can do it for quite cheap.
Now that Julie has taught you how to make your steampunk costume and you’re looking sharp, it’s time to add those finishing touches. I’m Bethany Whitehead, Co-Programs Coordinator, and today we’re going to talk about one of the quintessential steampunk accessories: The Jetpack.
When I first started inquiring about venues that might be interested in participating in a steampunk festival around the downtown area of Attleboro, the Attleboro Area Industrial Museum was my first stop.
The Attleboro Public Library in Attleboro, MA is an amazing resource, not only for research, but for recreational reading, programs, children’s activities, games, yoga, magazines, and informative displays. There is so much available at the library for every member of the community, but first, I’d like to talk about the building.
And now for part two (of two) of our vendor highlights! Look at all this amazing stuff.
October 28th is coming up VERY soon and we want you to know who will be there to offer products of amazing quality and imagination and steampunk spirit.
Do you want to pitch in to help the first annual Jewelry City Steampunk Festival become the best event it can be? Do you need community service hours for school? Do you want to hang out with a bunch of creative people for a day in Attleboro? Then this opportunity is for you!
My first introduction to steampunk came during a playdate.
Well, don’t be too intimidated. I’m going to take you through the basic steps. Remember: thrift stores, costume shops, vintage stores, or online are all easy ways to piece together a costume without doing any sewing. But I’m going to take you through some steps to show some basics of sewing your own costume.
