Hmmm... Having trouble with Firefox. Swapping back to the old layout for now. :)

Meet My Mouse: Penny the Gear Mouse

Once I had Rusty and Time by my side it didn't take long to track down Penny. She is a quiet but busy little thing. Always skittering from one place to the next in search of her next great find to add to her little collection. She's not picky about her food and she's very brave around Time the klockwerk kitten. Penny and Rusty really like exploring together too.

She is a native Texan from an abandoned warehouse in Amarillo. (I think she kind of misses home a bit but she does enjoy being around all the new things here in Austin.) She doesn't really seem to have a favorite item, pretty much anything new becomes her favorite. At the time she took a great interest in my camera...

Meet My Cat: Time the Klockwerk Kitten

Between his mechanical mews I first heard when hunting through the warehouse and Rusty the Steampunk Cog Dog's nose, we discovered this tiny treasure. He was hidden in a corner playing with a line of string that had been attached to one of the old pendulum clocks. He is a native Texan, found in an abandoned warehouse in Amarillo.
He left us a note one day saying his name was "Tiem the Klockwerk Kitten" but for convenience I spellchecked the first part. For his own sake I left the rest of his name as he gave it. He's pretty clever and plays well with others. Won't you help Time find a happy home where he can play with all the string he desires?

Meet My Dog: Rusty the Steampunk Cog Dog

Meet my new pup. He doesn't eat much and his barks are quiet. I think he's adorable down to his button noes and his clock part toes. He helps me scrounge up spare bits at the clock yard. His favorite toy is his old crusty dice he found at an abandoned warehouse. (That is actually where I found him wandering around in search of a good belly rub and an oiling.) He is a native Texan from an abandoned warehouse in Amarillo.

I received a package of old spare clock parts from an estate sale and today is his birthday. I planned him out last night for the most part and got him put together today.

I'm really happy with Rusty. Won't you help find him a good home?

My cat Jules is looking a little jealous. He makes a good watch dog though...

Just returned from A-kon and wow... It was great.
I missed it last year but this year really made up for it.
Revenge of the Penguins was the theme and penguins are my fav.
Originally the JRock groups selected didn't really entice me to go but when I heard Abney Park was going to be there I knew I had to grab the chance to see them live. It was a great concert and full of energy (Granted the crowd didn't move around a lot... My friend believes it is because the steampunk gear is so heavy. XD) They played a couple songs I hadn't heard before and I look forward to their next album with the direction they are taking.
There were many steampunk outfits and it seems that was the most common type of outfit this year. I had a great chance to meet up with old college buddies, talk to other steampunk artists and just grab a chance to relax.

It was a great time and I am already getting amped for the next con, San Japan on July 9-11th.
There is a chance that some of my items may be available there. More details to come.

"...steampunks are — what? Weirdoes who take pocket-watches too seriously? What are they gonna do, vehemently tell you what time it is?"
