Cute Tumblr Backgrounds
Steam Powered Serif

Before, and after.  A pet project of mine.  First, making a steampunk costume.  Second, building a repertoire of props to put on my resume.  Third, making items to put on my disturbingly empty Etsy shop. 

How does it look?  Will have two by the end of the week. I’m making it into an Instructable, which I’ll link here when it’s up.

Story behind my steam costume; an engineer of a steamship that trades with the outer-limits, which tends to get into scuffles with the local skypirates. 

The second one will look much better.  I had to pry apart the first one four times after I had it painted.  I broke something inside and it didn’t fire, so I had to open it, fix it, push it together, test it, pry it apart, fix it, push it together, test it, etc.  Now that I understand the insides better, that won’t happen on this gun.  How do you like the color scheme?  Does that much worn brass look okay?  Or should I go more copper?  Does it look like it’s been dropped and handled with sweaty, oil-covered hands?  Any other ideas?
