Did someone say steampunk?

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, which involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used — usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them; in other words, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, art, etc.

This is why steampunk dolls are usually made off metals like copper, brass, steel and iron, rivets, gears and cogs, wood, leather and glass. But have you ever seen a steampunk art doll 100% made of yarn? Here it is!

Victoria loves reading books and is passionate about all kinds of machines. She's dreaming of becoming an inventor just like her big idol Leonardo da Vinci. She is approximately 14'' (35 cm) tall and it took me 17 hours to finish it.



You can adopt her here.



Steampunk ali parni punk, kot bi mu lahko rekli po slovensko, je žanr znanstvene fantastike. Dogaja se v svetu in času, v katerem se še vedno redno uporablja parni pogon (ponavadi gre za viktorijansko Britanijo iz 19. stoletja), vključuje pa futuristične inovacije in razno tehnologijo. Prav zaradi tega so punčke, narejene v stilu steampunka, najpogosteje sestavljene iz raznih kovin, kot so baker, medenina in železo, zakovic, kolesja, zobnikov, lesa, usnja in stekla. Ste kdaj že videli tako punčko, narejeno iz preje? Tukaj je!

Victoria rada bere knjige, strasno pa se navdušuje tudi nad vsemi vrstami naprav. Sanja o tem, da bi postala inovatorka, prav tako kot njen idol Leonardo da Vinci. Visoka je 35 cm, za njo sem pa porabila kar 17 ur.
