  1. What i love about steampunk is the idea behind it, that steam could power what we have as electronics, steampower would be a renewable source, lets get busy on some of the imagined inventions and make them real. Shall we? lol

  2. What I love about steampunk, is the way rusty looking parts of mechanics become usefull and pretty in their own way. Old looking pipes become important to the machines. like your jewelry, it gets that ''sparkling'' touch, tough the colours are just brown. I love just the idea of steampunk jewelry, because it's very original, and very nice looking.

  3. I love that steampunk combines the fabulously raw industrial nature of the Victorian era, with the limitless fantasy and technology of the future. It's like the perfect mix of fashion AND function. Cogs, gears, and gadgets galore!

  6. I love steampunk because it makes me feel beatiful and womanly when i dress up. It makes me feel happy and special. It lets my creative side go wild and my girly side take hold.

  7. I like the variety of metallics and how they're combined together with natural materials. Matte cogs with colorful feathers, bones and leather combined with watch parts and vials, gadgets and leather with crystals. I just find it very interesting. I also love that steampunk and cyberpunk are so very closely related and may be combined together. I'm more cyberpunk than steampunk myself, but I love the look both offer.

  9. I love the costumes. They can get so crazy elaborate, and they can vary so much depending on the person's character.

  10. I enjoy the multi-faceted rich culture that has bloomed from a literary genre. The beauty of a bygone era combined with the inspiration of modern minds. But I think that most of all I love the amazing people who are a part of this steampunk culture, so inviting, so intriguing, so creative, so wonderful.

  11. I love steampunk because there's just something really fun about it. I love the whole concept and some of the concepts are so cool.

  12. I really don't have much to say about Steampunk yet because I just got into the fandom not too long ago because of the items you make and a movie called "Steamboy". But I have really started to love all of the ideas that people can come up with, with the Steampunk idea.

  13. What i love about steam punk is the fact that when you cosplay steam punk you cosplay your olden time fantsy self. your not cosplaying as someone from just one genre or managa book your putting your personality into what you wear and into your own character and you bring that character to life. not only do i love it for its personality but i love it for its style its little nicks and ticks rust and kinda old look feel to it. Steam Punk is a personal and imaginative cosplay and genre. it stands out in a crowd it blends in, its a fasinating treasure that gleams like a mirror under the sun. Its a very powerful and personal cosplay that takes time and passion to pull off. And this is what i love abot Steam Punk

  14. What I love about Steampunk is how it mixed two sorts of worlds in a classy and absolutely appealing way. Its plausible in all its parts whether it is inventions or apparel, and as your work shows jewelry too. Its just incredible.

  15. What I love about steampunk is the community. We're not all makers or like-minded, but for the most part, you can carry on conversations at length with just about any of them about some splendidly twisted piece of plastic you found in a parking lot, or how wonderful this or that thrift store is, or about the fantastic deal you got on Ebay for a dirty tophat.

  16. Gears.
    What else can I say? :P

  17. I love all the different styles and the mechanical things like the gears, plus the fact that it brings nature, technology, and fashion all together in one amazing genre

  18. I love how there is so much VARIETY in steam punk styles. Yet I can find something absolutely beautiful about each one. I can't think of any other style that can utilize such great stuff and still be considered the same 'genre'. :) That's what I love about your work too! You explore so many different techniques and such.

  19. What I love about Steampunk are the endless possibilities - historical, technological, creative, fashion, literary, and visual.

  20. What I love about steampunk is that is looks awesome with anything. It has that fantasy clockwork look to it which I love because I've always been interested in gears and stuff xD

  21. I love that the people in the steampunk niche tend to be so friendly and informative. Definitely one of the more welcoming fandoms I've come across. Well, that and all the clothes are so pretty.

  22. Steam powered creations during the Industrial Revolution interest me to no end. Just by utilizing some steam pressure one part gets push and moves another part and it goes on through its cycle, turning the entire thing into a beautiful functioning machine. And the fact that all of these parts have been brought into a style of fashion makes me ecstatic. :3

  23. hmmmm good question... I mostly like steampunk bc it remembers me all the time I look at it on the old times of "Mad Max" and this amazing post-apocalyptic feeling that grows deep in my stomach... it´s not how it looks like.. it´s how it feels like... everything works hand in hand... perfect but in a other kind of view.. unperfect. that makes steampunk for me just adorable :)

  24. I love steampunk because it brings back a sense of freedom. There's freedom socially, of course, with costumes and characters and such, but also mechanical freedom. I love the beauty of the mechanism, of bringing a fantasy to life without digital displays or complicated circuitry or computers. It's pure.

  25. I love the atmosphere that acompanies steampunk. The gears, airships and victorian dress are all awesome

  26. i like steampunk because it is a romantic interpretation of the Victorian era, when the world was still large and you could get lost at the edges. i also like the vests

  27. I'm trying to figure out how I haven't seen this blog yet XD. Turner, I love your pieces. I can't wait to see what else you come up with this year! Keep up the good work girl!

  28. Ever since I was a kid I have loved the stories that involved futuristic technologies in the past...I never had a name for that until about last year. Steampunk! I love the concepts that are born from it. Endless ways to make our technological world become real within the beauty of the past. For the artists, it opens a new medium to play in and for the techies it opens the opportunity to rethink how these things have come to be.
    What a fun adventure this steampunk is! <3

  29. There's High Fantasy, Low Fantasy, Science Fiction, Urban Fantasy... Steampunk is another genre of fantasy to get lost in. And I love fantasy.

    What draws me to Steampunk is the sheer richness of the setting. There seems to be a certain classiness to it (in "traditional" steampunk-alternate-history settings), and it appeals to me. For steampunk tales set in a new world however, its the various ways that they incorporate the ideas and so called "mechanics" of a Steampunk world and place it within the new setting that intrigues me when done well.

  30. There are a lot of things I love about steampunk, but waht I like the best is the way one can take, old pieces of for example metal and wood and make it into some truly amazing gadget, machine or even clothing. All you need to du steampunk is a bit of creativity, everything else depends on your own style. This means no one can go and be all elitis when it comes to steampunk, cause it's all individual styles ^^

  32. hmm i love how eclectic steampunk can be and the versatility... well and it just looks cool ~_^

  33. What i love about steampunk is the melding of vintage and technological elements, also there are so many variations of steampunk that almost everyone can identify or like one certain aspect of the generalized "steampunk" style.
