Inspired by an article on Silver Goggles (“Friendly” Tech) I’m holding a contest. I’d like submissions of the finest FRIENDLY1 personally carried steampunk devices that you wear. A whole swathe of the costumed focus in Steampunk regalia is weapon related2, and I think we need to shift gears3. I know there are a lot of non-weapon/ non-aggressive steampunk accoutrements out there, and I want to shine a reward-laden light on those efforts.


Post a comment with a link to your device, it could be on its own or shown in-situ as part of your outfit.

Contest will be open until the end of May.

After the end of May, I’ll decide who wins.4

The winner will receive a copy of The Art of Steampunk: Revised Second Edition – either via Amazon’s gift-sending contraption or I’ll buy it and post it.5

  1. Friendly is more than just not-a-weapon. It’s something that’s welcoming, or encourages engagement []
  2. Hands up all those who own a modified Nerf™ Maverick, or know people who have that as a key part of their outfit []
  3. Yes, yes, you knew that was coming, well done []
  4. I may ask others for their votes, I may put up a short list, but at the end of the contest I will be the source of arbitration. Bwahaha. []
  5. Hopefully the winner will be in an Amazon servicing area – otherwise shipping from Australia is going to be pants. []
