Epic Steampunk Wedding Has Everything: A Robo-butler, An Octopus Cake, and Classy Duds Galore

This Steampunk wedding really takes the cake (har har) when it comes to doing marriage ceremonies in ambitious and unconventional ways! We got permission from the bride to show off her awesome wedding photos, the highlights of which are a striped wedding cake with octopi instead of figurines at the top, mini monorail table settings, and most of all: a ring-bearing robot built and designed by Grant Imahara, friend of the happy couple. How awesome is that?

If you want to see more pictures of the wedding, check out the fantastic marital details in the article over on Offbeat Bride. Congratulations to the bride and groom, and may every wedding be as epic as yours!

Review: Needles and Artifice, An Ingenious Book of Steampunk Knitting Patterns

I am a geek and a nerd. I am an intermediate knitter and crocheter. I have very little exposure to the amazing world of steampunk, but I’m working on it. Nice to meet you.

Now that we have that out of the way, let me just say this: this book is fricking awesome.

Beautiful, Electric, Custom Steampunk Heels

Look, I’m just as much against the glue-gears-on-it-and-call-it-steampunk aesthetic as everyone else. And so, no, I’m not really sure what function the mess of gears that adorn the custom shoes of possibly now defunct Etsy shop HotAirBallonRide could have… but I do know that the shoes have LED lights you can flick on with a switch. Unfortunately, they’re probably not being offered anymore, as all the links to HotAirBallonRide’s Etsy shop that we could find 404ed. Pic of the lights below!
