I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

Did you see the movie Stardust? It's a sweet fairy tale, but the eye candy by production designer Gavin Bocquet is what sold me.

I loved the costumes and set :)
I loved the movie AND the book - which was quite different. :)
The movie was great visually, but I loved the novel by Neil Gaimon...the audio version that Neil himself performed. He is an AWESOME storyteller!
I really enjoyed this movie. I've watched it probably 6 times. I love the sets, costumes, and of course you gotta love those airship pirates.
Really liked this! and pretty much love anything Neil Gaiman. But I bought the DVD for the airship pirates. ^_^
And can you ever see Robert DiNiro the same again?? He was fantastic!!
Oi, cap'n, we always knew you was a poofta! Great movie.
I'm totally in love with this movie - although I HATE that dress Michelle Pfeiffer is wearing. I think this is one of my favourite De Niro and Ricky Gervais roles ever.
Have you seen the French film Vidocq?
Very steampunk and awesome.
Completely forgot about this movie until you reminded me. Now I want to rewatch it!
This is my favorite movie of all time. I'm the kinda gal that only ever watches a movie once. And that's it. Yet I have watched Stardust five times, even bought the DVD for myself and have read the book twice- LOVE it. Glad I discovered your blog- I'm loving the steampunk jewelry look and was researching THAT and it led me here:)
Great movie, great book.
But the airship pirates are lightning catchers that sell the lightnings to the shop ;-).
