Steampunk Journal Update

Hello Lovelies:

Although I have my own Go Fund Me (linked in my events and info at the bottom of each post), I’d like to share a crowdfunding for Steampunk Journal.

Late last year, the Journal started looking for contributors to their fine online magazine. I was happy to start writing pieces for them, including stunning photos, video links, and interesting tidbits of history. I am grateful that it gives my own art and love of steampunk a much wider audience.

The Journal has expanded rapidly and could use a little help to get onto a bigger server and continue to give the Steampunk community one of the best resources for all things steamy. They would like to continue to support artists, writers, and makers, like me, and to share what’s going in the Steampunk world. If you can’t donate, please consider reading or share the Journal, the link:

Steampunkjounal.org

Or if you can donate, the Patreon link is here:

https://www.patreon.com/steampunkjournal?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=creatorshare2

Writing for the Journal has allowed me to collaborate with some incredible people, like my piece about the Fox Theatre:

Fox Theatre Shoot!!

Hello Lovelies:

On Wednesday June 20th I shot at one of the most beautiful places on the planet. The stunning Fox Theatre in my hometown of St. Louis, MO.

I have always dreamed of doing something in the theatre, so in two action filled hours, photographers Kim Ackerman, Kyana Gilliam, and assistant Ray Ochs, models Jacqueline Brown, Ashley Meyer, and Mary L. Poll, and myself, artist/stylist/designer/coordinator/director, filmed/shot haute couture steampunk fashion, maternity fashion, promos for Big River Steampunk Festival and Twitch/podcast Talk of the Tavern, a piece for Steampunk Journal, and a book trailer for my second novel “Revenge and Machinery”.

It was incredible.

I am posting just a couple samples here, but the article for the Journal will come very soon as well as the book trailer! I will also have some behind the scenes footage of working on the shoot. So a sneak peek:

The Phantom and World Goth Day…

Hello Lovelies:

My own little celebration of World Goth Day includes some popular culture references:

I finally saw Phantom of the Opera at the lovely historic Fox Theatre this past weekend. This wonderfully dark Victorian musical satisfied with an amazingly tall talented Phantom, stunning costumes, and brilliant stage effects.

The Fox Theatre was its usual gothic and mixed architecture beautiful self:

My latest piece for Steampunk Journal is about the show Houdini and Doyle which had its own gothic/steampunk bent with plenty of fog, shadows, and mystery! Read about it here:

https://www.steampunkjournal.org/2018/05/21/to-the-home-cinema-a-review-of-the-television-show-houdini-doyle/

Need something else to watch? How about Crimson Peak with all its Horror Gothic glory?

And it’s not too late to celebrate the dark side of you, if you’re in St. Louis, stop on by the Gothic Garage Sale at the Crack Fox this Thursday, 5p-midnite! I’ll have plenty of clean out my closet items for your enjoyment.

FB invite here:

Thanks for all of your support in all my endeavors!

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

Happy Earth Day!

Hello Lovelies:

Happy Earth Day to all!

One of my favorite things about Steampunk folk is that we are great recyclers. Most of my hats are made from recycled/upcycled materials.

“A Truly Mad Hat” for example was made from an old lampshade, old curtains, part of a cowgirl outfit, clearanced trim, a used toy train, and an ice cream bucket.

I hope these pics inspire you to stay steamy and crafty while helping Mother Earth!

As always, thank you for reading,

Victoria
