Vent69 Steampunk E-Cigarettes
These steampunk e-cigarettes were apparently created by an ECF member who goes by the handle Vent69. It appears to be a variable-voltage device based on a DIY modding chip; Vent69 has also made a smaller steampunk mod that operates at 3.7 volts only. Both e-cigarettes appear to be made from copper, although its possible that some other material was used and some sort of artificial coloring was done to create the appearance of copper with a deep patina. Vent69 is truly skilled; look at the hinge holding the end cap of the top e-cigarette in place. These e-cigarettes are full of little details and look anything but cheap. For whatever reason, it appears that Vent69 has asked his buyers not to disclose the prices of the mods publicly perhaps to avoid people who want to flip them. Judging from a Google search, it appears that the price of the smaller 3.7-volt mod may exceed $500. Or, the person asking $500 may be attempting to take advantage of the fact that this steampunk e-cigarete has one very, very long waiting list.
Last year was a good one for us, with lots of interesting events, and for the fact that I finished five projects! Yes, indeed, so please forgive me for feeling quite proud of myself for thatokay, thats enough, because my ambition this year is to finish more than five projects!
Already, this month, we have the Jaunt to Whisby Nature Reserve to look forward to, and two Lincoln COGS get-togethers at our new location, the lovely Craftea Cafe on Melville Street. (For the uninitiated, COGS stands for Crafters Of Great Splendour!)
This weekend will see us participating in the noble art of Tea Duelling at the uni, with that splendid chap, Dr Porridge as Tiffin Master, ably assisted by Robert. So, what is a lady to wear for such shenanigans?
At the moment, a fair bit of our steampunk wardrobe is packed away while we attempt to transform our library (which ended up as the Trebus Room!) into a sewing/crafting roombut it just feels like a big game of musical junkwithout the music! We will get there eventually, fingers crossed, then there will be no stopping me!
Next month is a friends steampunk birthday party, March is the annual jaunt to the National Railway Museum in York, April we will return to Whitby, and August sees the return of a most splendid Weekend at the Asylum. Soon the diary will be filling up with more interesting events, COGS meets, and punknics as the weather improves. In fact, I cant wait for what this year has to offer, because whatever it isit will be trulysplendid!
This is my Steampunk lamp Diabolical Lamp “Rick” in honor of Rick Griffin the 60’s rock poster artist who created the eye-conic dancing eyeball poster.
This is a construction of three antique components. The Art Nouveau base once held a Loetz glass bowl. The exquisitely designed Aesthetic Japanese style brass ball is from a Victorian gas chandelier. The wrought iron finial is from a Victorian fence.
As a longtime rare bookseller, owls have always been “part of the game.” What I mean is, owls were always synonymous with things like reading, wisdom, intelligence etc. Throw in a “steampunk” veneer” to said owl, and now you have some true magic!
Have a library with thousands of books, or a cool home office? This badass Steampunk Owl will fit right in! Are those rockets on his back? ha!
All the copper and brass parts have either been reclaimed or purchased from locally owned hardware stores. Do-it-yourselfers take note of this tip: “The antique look of this drive is achieved by polishing but not treating it, thus letting a natural patina develop,” artist Jumpei Funaki reveals. – See more at: http://1800recycling.com/2011/05/incredible-recycling-steampunk-usb-flash-drives#sthash.OPf7umA6.dpuf
These goggles have a blue base coat and an aged pewter finish with pewter finished extension rings on each eye cup highlighted with silver dragon claw spikes. They include 2- 50 mm clear poly carbonate lenses, 2-50 mm shade 3 green poly carbonate lenses, and an elastic head strap. The lenses can also be removed and exchanged or replaced in whatever configuration you may like. They are also accented on each eye piece with aluminum stand-offs,pearl beads, gears and wire coils. One of a kind. Thanks for viewing.
Recycling waste of our industrial society is the inspiration of my artwork. All of my sculptures are entirely hand made from recycled scrap metal such as copper, brass and steel . I create art with all kinds of technology and techniques to soften the design despite the roughness and robust properties of the material. Therefore I create art with a respectful atmosphere and sometimes funny or even cynical view of reality. My work emphasizes a balance between the form and function. It blurs the line between utensil and decoration. I’ve created various functional objects such as lamps and clocks who’ve been made from heavy metal scrap into mechanical decoration with an industrial style which I like to call Steampunk Art.

This keyboard is similar to my “Archbishop” model, but features side lit stained-glass-styled inserts and keys featuring Alchemical symbols. This keyboard was originally designed for a pharmacist and is themed around Apothecarial and Alchemical icons including the Bowl of Hygeia, the Caduceus, and the Eye of Ra (from which the modern “Rx” symbol used by pharmacists is derived).
This is a steam punk representation of a Vortex Manipulator but can be used as an add on for any steam punk costume. The outer casing is made from steel with a distressed copper finish added. It is mounted to a brown leather gauntlet which can be fastened to your arm. Additional straps can be added for a larger forearm. This one should fit up to a 7.5" wrist. A single blue 12 volt LED is mounted in the face of the piece and can be activated with the maintained push button switch which is on the face as well. Various gears and other pieces are mounted in the interior to give it a steam punk feel. Some have been weathered to give it a rustic feel. Comes with an aged wooden storage/display chest that has metal highlights. Thanks for browsing.
