The Gaslight Asylum

Welcome to The Gaslight Asylum; a place where admirers and lovers of Steampunk, Diesel Punk, Gaslight Romance, Air Krakens and all things alike can hang their top hats and aviator helmets; where mad scientists, alchemists and artificers can display their awesome projects, designs and costumes and where lounging with a glass of absynthe is nothing out of the ordinary.

Want to know what's brewing in the mad, mad world of steampunk? Then it might be a good idea to keep your goggles focused on this section to get the latest tid bits straight from the Aethernet.



[NEW!] September 17, 2009 - THE GASLIGHT GHOST CONTEST!
As you already know, we have a ghost haunting the Gaslight Asylum, which has been cleverly dubbed the Gaslight Ghost by some of our promising crazy people Inmates! [Chimes] and [Linderel] have even gone so far as to create a spooky contest, determined to find the true face behind this ghastly apparition, all in true steampunk fashion, of course! Quickly join the eerie fun at The Gaslight Ghost Contest and unleash your phantomically skills! (yes, I did just made up that word)


[NEW-ish!] September 15, 2009 - FEATURED ART!
Sooo, [nehirwen] has been pretty darn busy lately, totally going crazy (as any respectable Asylum inmate should) with her photo manipulation work! Personally, I'm very proud of her, thus I would like to give her a little artsy fartsy feature right here, right now! (For more of Neh's awesome art, check out: http://nehirwen.deviantart.com )

[NEW-ish!] September 15, 2009 - NOX OBSCURA CANCELLED!
Darnit! Darnit darnit darnit! Finally there is a first real steampunk event in the Netherlands, and then it gets cancelled! The organization of Nox Obscura announced today that the ticket sales of their event did not meet their expectations and they decided to pull the plug rather than letting it continue half-cocked. While I respect their decision, I strongly feel that maybe their standards were a little too high to begin with. Steampunk is a fast, but nevertheless still growing genre, and you can't expect it to be an immediate success. Anyways, people who did get a ticket can either get their money back or, alternatively, use it for getting into Keltfest or Castlefest. Hopefully there will be another version of Nox Obscura somewhere in the future, otherwise we'll just have to make do with the many other festivals and events the Netherlands has to offer! (More info on www.noxobscura.nl )

If there is one thing we know all too well, it is that Elftowners are a creative bunch of people. If you are too, and you also happen to be stuck in the Asylum, you must have heaps of things stored in those little boxes inside your brain! Don't be afraid to bring them out in the open! Photographs, drawings, costumes, stories, poems, machines of intricate designs and other.. things.. can be glorified below for all to awe over.

2011-07-22 [playslashwrite]: I would, but I'm sure I'm gonna die if I do that too, next to all my other projects XD

2011-07-22 [nehirwen]: Awww, can't have you die, do we. :(

2011-07-22 [playslashwrite]: Nope, you can't! :p

2011-08-01 [Akayume]: :O

2011-08-01 [playslashwrite]: So, how was our famous capital? :D

2011-08-01 [Akayume]: Amsterdam? I liked it! Pretty, pretty buildings. I got a small glimpse of the red light district. :P And Nehi and I met up at the public library there, not too far from the Amsterdam central train station. IT IS SO COOOOOOL.

2011-08-01 [9jlriexqk,ktpk]: I saw a fire juggler in Am Square. :D I love juggling. Did you see the flower market?

2011-08-01 [Akayume]: Nuuu, I did not sadly. :( I only really got to look around for maybe an hour or two.

2011-08-01 [playslashwrite]: Ahw, such a shame! Next time you're there we should all meet up! :D

2011-08-01 [Akayume]: Yes yes! I completely agree! :D [Sunrose] said if she had known she might have shown up too. :P

I for sure want to go back to Amsterdam. It's such a lovely city. (:

2011-08-01 [playslashwrite]: It would only have been a short stretch for me. I actually work in amsterdam XD

2011-08-01 [9jlriexqk,ktpk]: I love that there are so many bikes in Amsterdam/Netherlands..you don't really see that many bikes at home in the U.K, so its a novelty for me.

2011-08-01 [Akayume]: I know! O.o My city is the biking capital of the US, and we have noooooothing on the Netherlands. Nothing. o.o

2011-08-01 [Akayume]: Ps - Luuuuucky! It looks like a cool place to work. :D

2011-08-01 [playslashwrite]: Lol, and we got nothing on China, so there's that XD But yeah, it's a very convenient mode of transportation in the city center :)

Well, I don't actually get much to see of amsterdam itself; I'm kinda at the south edge XD

2011-08-01 [Akayume]: Ahhhhh, I see I see.

2011-08-01 [Chimes]: [9jlriexqk,ktpk], you clearly don't live in Oxford. There are bikes EVERYWHERE. :P Cyclists in Oxford are really irritating, they seem to hate pedestrians.. XD

2011-08-01 [Akayume]: EMU. I didn't know you were lurking here. :P

2011-08-01 [Chimes]: I am signed up for the wiki. :P My name's up there. :P

Cyclists also tend to be in London too. You see a lot of bikes there. Bike couriers.

2011-08-01 [Akayume]: ...Shhhhh... XP

2011-08-02 [9jlriexqk,ktpk]: My cousin recently moved from Oxford. Its a nice place, the few times that I have been. Nice architecture. But you are right, I don't live there :P I live in a busy shoe..
