Thanks to this wonderful post at Metafilter, I found out that you can watch "real life" footage taken in London in 1904, as well as Calcutta in 1899. It's pretty amazing stuff. If you like this sort of thing, you may also like Oddee's post in which photographs of Paris in 1900 are compared to those taken in 2008.

Because I am all about Jules Verne, I think this demonstration of making a pop-up book of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is just awesome. Make your own giant kraken!

Also, the always-fantastic Instructables shows you how to make your own raygun, so you can properly fend off your giant kraken.

For attire, B. and I have been having a wonderful time sending each other links from Uniformalwearhouse. Some offerings are just goofy, but they have some great gems there if you search long enough!

Other weblogs to check out: Steampunk Pix, which provides just what it says, and Alrededor del Mundo's steampunk-themed site (written in Castillan Spanish).

The pictures of Paris make my heart hurt.
