Selection of astounding steampunk creations!

It has been a while since last update. Nevermind, it is the quality that matters, am I correct?

And you must admit these are pretty good indeed. See below for fine selection of exquisite fashion!

Steampunk ladies

Deviantart, the endless source of wonders.
You'd prefer "steampunk girls", but these are ladies, oh golly. Take a closer look at the collection o' pics I managed to extract. Steampunk people or steampunk art - you decide.

Semperey fashion journal sneak peek during London Fashion Week

Quite frankly, I am not the big fan of feminine fashion magazines, although it often occurs to me to find interesting things in the least expected places. I was searching for steampunk-like fashion stuff, but instead found some shoots located on Semperey page (apparently it's some sort of fashion magazine for sophisticates). Navigate to the  Fashion -> Street Spy section to access the article.

The pictures were supposedly taken during London Fashion Week and really caught my eye.
Even though not typically steampunk-ish, I still think some could be used as such with minor refinements, like adding a few cogwheels and such. More underneath.

Well would you please take a look at it

Apparently, American McGee's Alice remake is here!

Moreover, their facebook page is handing over posters atm. I'm yet to get my copy but I'm thinking of making a review after I'm done with the game. Hope it won't be disappointing.

And since you're on facebook, feel free to add me.

I'm here

Guys, guys. I'm still alive. I'm waiting for American McGee's Alice remake to make a decent review and besides I moved of late so I was pretty busy with setting up on the new place. Needless to say, I couldn't mod my PC case. I actually had to leave it behind, so there. I'll post more later.

Steampunk PC video game recommendation - American McGee's Alice

I must admit I'm not a big fan of video games myself. There are, however, several notable exceptions. One of the prominent examples of old is Louise Carroll's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland adventures. As far as the game plot goes, it feels more like you're reading a fantastic book rather than playing a game. Game itself conveys strong spirit of steampunk - there are cogwheel-ridden steam-powered machinery and suitable environment on every game level. Amusingly enough, game's main theme is called "Flying on the wings of steam" by Chris Vrenna. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find out any more of his work besides OST to the McGee's Alice, but he is supposedly going to work on a sequel as well. It's definitely worth checking out; it should be also noted game developers were nice enough to release both PC and Mac versions of the game. You can get them at Amazon for about $10, which isn't a lot for such game.

Internet problems, will be back up this week

Alright, so it seems my connection to the outside world had abandoned me for the last couple of days, which is why I was unable to reply to your comments, which I will sort out and reply with extra effort later this week. I can only use the internet at work which is not really good idea if you want to be productive, and thus was also unable to check out modding www's you sent me before.
Take heed, though: I shall return no later than Thursday! Stay tuned.

PC modding

Alright, I got a mid-tower PC case at home. As I no longer need it, I thin I'll mod it steampunk style, but I have no previous modding experience. Anyone can recommend good modding sites and\or tutorials? I don't want to blast the whole thing due to inexperience.

Steampunk stuff of awesomeness - Deviantart selection by Decadentier

Well, here are artstuffs I found during my usual rummage through Deviantart's catalogues. I picked the ones I found absolutely outstanding and worth mentioning. Take a closer look:

I'll start with that pair of googles. Mediocre welding googles in the past turned into steampunk artpiece.
