A Meme for the Theme!

Expropriated from ysabela, and with a tip of the top hat to compass_rose, this is quite fitting given that I spent much of today adding "welding lines" to my steampunk rocket pack. :-)

Your result for The Steampunk Style Test...

The Gadgeteer

21% Elegant, 62% Technological, 7% Historical, 32% Adventurous and 60% Playful!

You are the Gadgeteer, the embodiment of steampunk technology. Ironically, many of the things that most define your style are probably too large to easily carry about, but given the opportunity you would prefer to be seen surrounded by boiler engines, gear-driven calculators, and incredible automata. Of all the steampunk fashion styles, you place the greatest emphasis on technological accessories, and you are the most likely to create elaborate gadgets that are as much a part of your outfit as your clothes. You probably have goggles, but unlike most people you consider them to be for more than decoration. Whereas most people might look odd carrying a satchel of tools around, for you they may well be essential. Above all, you remind everyone that what sets the genre apart from Victoriana is simply the level of technology.

You may wish to check out the kinetic sculpture of Theo Jansen. He builds wind propelled sculptures that walk with eerie similarity to vrious animals.

There are a number of great videos on Youtube of his pieces in action.

I think something of this sort could lend itself to steampunk quite easily.

Aren't they amazing? I've seen `em before, but had forgotten about them. Thanks for the linkie!

And yes, with a bit of aesthetic embellishment they could be very steampunk!
