T-shirt Test Prints are In and Pin Design Reveal

The t-shirt test prints are in and they look great! They are direct printed on 100% cotton preshrunk Gildan t-shirts, and are of a good weight. None of that overly flimsy stuff.

We also have a prototype up of the 2016 exclusive 3D printed pin! We are experimenting with ink-washing the pins, so that the fine details really pop. They may also come in a selection of randomized colors rather than being just red, but this is not a final decision yet. Further images will be posted as updates are available.

Both the T-shirt and the pin are available for pre-sale through our GoFundMe! T-shirts come in size S through 5XL and are $25. Pins are $15 and a T-shirt/Pin combo is $35.

If you are interested in either of these items, please consider pre-ordering! T-shirt orders will cut off August 1st to ensure we have plenty of time to have attendee shirts available at the event. Not attending? No problem! Simply tell us in the comments box of your GoFundMe donation and we will ship you your pin-and/or-T-shirt after the event!

Every little bit helps, Thanks!

Pufferbelly Steampunk Express, June 11th, Wilmington DE

The Pufferbelly Steampunk Express, another Steampunk event, is only a week away! The Express looks to be shaping up to be a lot of fun.  Who is planning on attending? One of our organizers, Melissa, will be vending as Darcarin Studios on the train platform this weekend. Feel free to stop by and say hello!

"The Wilmington & Western presents a steam-infused spectacle of exciting musical entertainment, vendors and much more – all rooted in the neo-Victorian themes of the Steampunk culture.

The event will include hourly 40-minute steam-powered train rides (of course!), musical entertainment, plenty of unique photo opportunities, food vendors, and a lot more. The visiting Lehigh Valley Coal Company No. 126 will join with our iconic No. 98 to operate "pull-pull" style (one locomotive at each end of the train).

Passengers are encouraged to wear their finest Steampunk and Victorian attire. This event is sure to appeal to a wide range of visitors - from Steampunks to railfans to the family looking for a unique weekend outing - there will be something for everyone during the Pufferbelly Steampunk Express!"

Those of us behind The Steampunk Farmer's Market would like to  start promoting more Steampunk events in the general area. (Especially if they are willing to promote us in return). If you know of or run any events and would like to do a promo-trade, give us a shout!
