Steampunk Space Helmet Answered

Just when I thought that there was enough steampunk to last me through the month, another wonderful item comes along. Why fight it? Just check out all the details that make up this crazy piece to enable Victorian gentlemen to explore the ether without having to remove their tophats.

Technically, it's only the union jack when flown from a naval vessel.

Actually, since the US space effort was very nearly coordinated by the navy, as, I think, was ours, there's probably a case for calling it a jack on a steampunk spacecraft...

That was me posted that. It said Kiteman at the top of the page, and showed my avatar...

(This has happened before, when She Who Must Be Obeyed has been browsing the site in between my log-ins...)

No, my arm. I'm breaking my arm patting myself on the back, because I made Kitewife's avatar.

She's a red-head, and female, but that's as far as similarities go - Adrian kindly made Kitewife's avatar from a previous incarnation of mine.

. Big fan of Heinlein's Deety Carter, et al, but always had a penchant for redheads. With black, blond, and brown running a close second. ;) . Casey would dance with the strawberry blonde ...

And if it doesn't work in outer space you could always turn it into a nifty popcorn popper. The gas hookup is already there. Just invert the glass dome for a serving bowl. Anyone doing steampunk small kitchen appliances?

To keep from running back and forth to the kitchen, snacks should always be filled to the brim.

As much as I like the Steampunk aesthetic, it's the working stuff that does it for me, the "props", not so much.
