It was a wonderful revelation when looked back at my favourite childhood movies, the ones that really made an impact, all possessed elements of steampunk. Laputa, elements of the Secret of Nimh (the glorious tech!).... All had some element of what I now know as steampunk and I LOVE it! I started to really fall in love with the idea around a year and a half ago, but have more recently really been captivated by it. I may not be a fashionista in this day and age, most likely because everyone wears the same, boring thing, but I LOVE the classic, old fashioned garments and enjoy putting together all sorts of designs together in my head (I lack any sort of tailoring experience, safe for some pining and hand stitching). I hope to be able to learn to sew like the pros and create all sorts of garments, as well as persona's and stories and gadgets and gizmos. Right now, I'll enjoy from a bit of a distance, as I have school to focus on and a job to finance my education, but my free time will be undoubtedly filled with air pirates and lady mechanics!
