A mash-up theme inspired by…I have no idea. It just popped into being. I think I’ll have some freebies for this one too. First, though, a listing of commercial and free items that I own and have installed. This isn’t a comprehensive list by any means, but I hope it’ll spark a few ideas. (See Steampunk Kit-Bashing Central for more resources.)
I included a number of commercial products that are no longer available for sale. Mostly to jog the memory in case these have gotten as lost in your runtime as they have in mine (and sometimes vendors may be willing to sell a discontinued item if asked; it doesn’t hurt to politely inquire.)
Modes of Transportation
Notes: Maybe these props are what inspired the theme!
Knights in Shining Armor, Gallant Steeds, and Menacing Dragons
Notes: The HellHorse is a bit of a PIA to use in DS because its materials are Poser-only, but I’ve managed to get some decent results.
Anu Blue Rust (not available) || XTreemeSkin 1 (not available) || Fime (not available) || Naiya October Rust (not available) || Gloria Industrial Revolution || Industrial Man, Tin Man || Rusty Dreams || Mechanica No. 5 || Adena
Notes: I didn’t want ordinary looking princesses, princes, or evil witches and queens, so I went digging around for some of my weirder character textures.
Steampunk Implants || SP AirMan || Steampunk Protective Mask || Steampunk Goggles || Steampunk Top Hat || Steam Pilot || Dive helmet from Nautical Bric-a-Brac || Torpedo (no longer available) || Technophilia – Breathless || V4 Eyez
Notes: I have lots of other goggles and steampunk-ish headware that came with various outfits, but didn’t include them here.
Notes: Castles, towers, throne rooms, hovels where witches plot the destruction of princesses, and general scene-setting props. I have more scenes similar to these — including the entirety of AntFarm’s Never series — but these are a pretty decent representative selection from my runtime.
Mechanical Soldiers, Dwarfs, Huntsmen, & Fairy Godmothers
Notes: I didn’t have a lot of “Mechanicals,” but I’m sure there are others that would work equally well.
Stuff I don’t have, but wouldn’t mind acquiring if I suddenly won the lottery
DM Clockwork, DM Eclectica, Steam Outpost, Steampunk Cryo Chamber (for Sleeping Beauty or Snow White, of course), Steampunk Office Equipment, Steampunk Shop Clutter, Steampunk Explosives, War Unicorns, Steam Pirate (Captain Hook!), a huge Steam Sword for the equally huge Steam Powered Armor, Steam Betty (she’s fantastic; why don’t I own her?!), Clarice, Ragnorok Mask, Mechanical Doll Wings, Druid Wings, Tube Long Skirt, and Caged for Imprisonment (which I own.)
While I don’t have lots, there’s enough for a mini-theme. This time the freebies are listed inside…
