Steampunk inspiration and resources

Steampunk’d Comes to Netflix

First Penny Dreadful, and now the world’s first Steampunk reality TV show has come to my favorite streaming service! I admit it, I watched half of the entire run of the show in one sitting because I can’t seem to get enough of watching brilliant and talented people making beautiful things 🙂 And the timing is perfect as people everywhere turn their minds to crafting the perfect Halloween costume.

Plus, the show brings all the catty fun we all know and love from the reality competition genre, but rather than just sewing like Project Runway or just character design like Face-Off, these makers are challenged every week to create a functional Steampunk space with at least one matching costume. The judges give them extra tasks as well, like creating a Rube Goldberg machine that serves breakfast or giving the bedroom a mechanized way to go from day to night, so every assignment stands out and addresses specific needs and a range of talents.

  2. My gf and I just binge-watched the whole season in two days. So good! I already emailed Netflix asking them to revive it for another season. They’ve picked up plenty other shows, if enough fans ask for it I hope they listen and go for it.
