I have been invited to a Halloween party whose theme is Steampunk, basically. I banged my head against the wall trying to think of something to go as. First it was a steampunked Cartoonist, second was a Jason character. Then I finally thought of something that I can actually relate to.
I'm going as a Steampunk Mike Nelson. He is trapped on a zeppelin called the Dirigible of Love and is forced to watch bad Moving Pictures (Zeotropes?). Thankfully, the last guy who was trapped up there left his steam-powered automatons, Crow, Gypsie and Thomas Servo.
This is my Servo design.
