Steampunked Sony Headphones

Steampunked Sony Headphones

My latest creation is a pair of Steampunk headphones. I wanted them to sound good so I started with Sony MDR-XB300 Extra Bass Stereo Headphones , you can see a picture of the original headphones below, also I liked the leather cushioned ear pads. I cut off the headband leaving only the ear pieces and created the rest from findings, various wire, and leather. They look big on the skull but they fit well and are very comfortable. I’m working on a matching Steampunk wrist cuff to hold my Ipod Nano and will be posting that soon. Thanks for looking and commenting.

Bioshock Big Daddy Nerf Maverick

Bioshock Big Daddy Nerf Maverick

This project is a departure from my normal work, it is more Deisel Punk than Steampunk. It is based on the Big Daddy Bouncer from the Bioshock games by 2K Games, you can see the actual figure in the pictures below.  I used a Nerf Maverick for the mod, wire from metal clothes hangers, a small motor and added trigger controlled lights and drill, the drill I sculpted from clay. I also added a basket so that Mr. Bubbles wouldn’t be without a little sister. If you want to see the gun in action check out my youtube video here .

Steampunk Dragonfly Tinker

Steampunk Dragonfly Tinker

This started as part of another project before developing into it’s own piece. I recently purchased neon fiber optic fiber and got the idea to use it for the wings of a dragonfly. I decided to try my hand a wire sculpting and came up with my version of a Steampunk dragonfly. Once I had the dragonfly I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it, because it was larger than I had anticipated, so my girlfriend suggested a jewelry box and after some trial and error here’s my Steampunk Dragonfly jewelry box, I call it Dragonfly Tinker because to me it looks like he’s working on the clock works. Thanks for looking and commenting I really appreciate it.

Steampunk Aviator Goggles – Handmade

Steampunk Aviator Goggles – Handmade

Today I’m posting my first pair of totally handmade Steampunk aviator goggles. I started with a pair of lenses I purchased on Etsy the I used leather from an old leather bag for the eye cups and straps. I added decorations, copper wire, gears and used smaller blue beads for the second lens. The blue lenses swing open and bag individually. Thanks for looking and commenting. Please check back for future posts.

Steampunk Leather Top Hat Finished

Here is the finale of my last two posts. My completed Steampunk Leather Top Hat. I used parts from a leather belt that I took apart and stitched together and added found objects and charms. I wire wrapped a skeleton key for the center piece. Thanks for looking and come back for my next project. I’m working on leather Steampunk aviator goggles.

Steampunk Octopus Plasma Lamp

Steampunk Octopus Plasma Lamp

Today I’m posting photos of my Steampunk Octopus Lamp. My girlfriend brought home a pair of bottles that had a cool cylindrical shape and when I saw them I knew that I wanted to use them in some sort of lamp. The hardest part was getting light into the bottles though from the beginning I knew that I was going to use Christmas lights because they’re small enough to fit through the opening. The lights went in and out of the bottles a dozen times until I found the correct flow for the placement of the plugs.

The base evolved around the bottles fairly quickly but the hardest part and the part that changed the most was the top of the lamp. Thanks to my girlfriend’s critiques ( though I wasn’t happy about them at the time) I pushed myself to create something completely different than what I had originally imagined. I’m very proud of and happy with the final outcome. Please let me know what you think and check back for more creations.

Nerf N-Strike Jolt EX-1 Blaster Steampunk Telescopic Pistol Mod

Nerf N-Strike Jolt EX-1 Blaster Steampunk Telescopic Pistol Mod

This post follows from my last post. It’s the companion pistol to the Steampunk shotgun I previously created. For this mod I started with a Nerf N-Strike Jolt EX-1 Blaster and a Toysmith Pirate Telescope and at completion both are still functional. I also used gears, tubing, miscellaneous toy parts, a cameo pin and other found objects. I hope you enjoy this entry and please come back for my next post which will be a Steampunk lamp.
