My Next Project – A Steampunk Guide to Hunting Monsters!

18 Oct

My Mozart Project is close to completion. I have one photo left to take and a dozen left to edit. While I work on these, I am starting a new project with blogger Alisa Kester!

In 2012, Alisa and I worked together on a steampunk photoshoot for Dark Beauty Magazine. We decided to work together again using Alisa’s new Steampunk Monster costumes. But the more we talked about it, the more we thought it would be fun to create a Steampunk book instead.

This book will feature a lady adventurer named Philomena Dashwood who is invited on a Monster Hunting Tour which travels the entire globe. During her trip she keeps a diary about her exploits as she encounters Vampires, Zombies, Mummies, Werewolves, Ghosts, etc.. as well as numerous handsome young suitors! Imagine Jane Austen meets Scooby Doo – but with real monsters, of course! You can read the first chapter here!

“The Steampunk Ladies’ Guide to Hunting Monsters” will be half fashion spread, half narrative fiction. Each chapter will be divided by monster and will feature both a full photographic illustration of a scene from the chapter as well as numerous tin-type/daguerreotype photos of the people and monsters the heroine meets. Accompanying these pictures will be journal entries, news clippings, telegrams, love notes etc.

We are starting a Kickstarter Fundraiser to help us raise money to make our book and would be so happy to have you take a look or share this fundraiser! It only lasts until November 15th, and we only get funded if we reach our goal!

We would love to have you participate! Visit our blog steampunkmonsters.com!

    This project looks cool as heck. Really digging the costumes. I checked out your Kickstarter page as well–the Monster Hunting Tour Postcard is epic. Wishing you best of luck in this project.
