Help Make “Iron Sky — The Coming Age” Happen!

If you like what you see in the featurette, love dieselpunk movies, or simply adored the first Iron Sky film (Nazis on the moon, it sounds ridiculous but it was a stroke of sheer and utter brilliance), and you can spare a few bucks, please go to the movies’ indigogo campaign and donate.

Because let’s face it, who doesn’t want to see reptilian Adolf Hitler with his pet T-Rex Blondi attempt to take over the world, dieselpunk style?

Want to know more about the Iron Sky movies? Here’s a whole bunch of links for you to peruse: Website, Blog, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and YouTube.

Event Review: Emporium Vernesque

Emporium Vernesque 2014 - review cover shot

Event: Emporium Vernesque
What: steampunk convention
When: November 8 2014
Where: Luxor Live, Arnhem, The Netherlands
Website

Emporium Vernesque was back this year, for the 3rd time, and instead of having split its location between Willemeen and Luxor Live like last year, they had moved to Luxor Live entirely, leaving Willemeen completely for the first time.

Luxor Live is much larger than the previous venue, and it needs to be said, a lot more beautiful. Even though the light wasn’t best to photograph in, it did give the entire venue the exact right kind of atmosphere.

Being completely in the new venue caused some glitches and there was a bit of chaos, but most steampunks didn’t let that hinder them and they happily moved around between the rooms or the area just outside of the venue. Things like that are to be expected from new surroundings, and I’m sure that next year all the kinks will have been ironed out. Continue reading

Emporium Vernesque III

Event: Emporium Vernesque
What: steampunk convention
When: November 8 2014
Where: Luxor Live, Arnhem, The Netherlands
Website

It’s nearly that time of the year again: time to attend Emporium Vernesque, the premier indoors steampunk convention of The Netherlands (and quite possibly the entirety of Europe).

This year in a new and bigger venue, Luxor Live, and with more fashion, shops, workshops, music and of course, full of friendly and open-minded steampunk fun of all imaginable ‘punk types!

There will be plenty to do and plenty to see, and if you feel like spending a day in full steam this is the event you want to be going to for sure!

The convention really IS worthwhile but don’t just take my word for it right now, you can read the reviews of both past editions, you can find them here and here.
