Call to Arms: Jane's Army [Jun. 2nd, 2010|03:45 pm]
The Victorian Era for the 21st Century

corvaxgirl
Rise up Maids and Cooks, Nurses and School-Mistresses, Prostitutes and Grocer-Wives! There shall be a Revolution of Flower-Sellers in our Lifetimes!

Join Jane's Army*! We want you!

Look up, ye Downtrodden! Look up into the great, flawless Sky. Those are not Clouds, but silk Balloons in Every Color, striped Lurid and Gay. We grind our Bones to Dust in the Streets, but above us Zeppelins soar on perfumed Winds, and fine Folk in Leather, Feathers, and Buckled Boots sip Champagne from Crystal, staring down at us with brass Spyglasses, making Wagers on which of us will Perish next.

We want your budget Steampunk finery . . .for the working class! Steampunk has always been about the future that never was. We're putting together a piece for the steampunk community featuring working class steampunk fashion.

We need:
* Pics of you modeling your working class steampunk outfits for the piece including any credits you would like sent to janesarmy (at) gmail (dot) com
* Tips on where to find pieces for $50 or less for steampunk working attire or suggestions on what to sew for Steampunk working attire.


What you do not see are the Children who wind the Gearworks, stoke the Fires, load the Aerial Bombardments, pack Powder and scrape Bird Offal from the Engines. Children who release the glittering Ordnance that shatters the Earth below. You do not see their bruised Bodies, their broken Knuckles, their lost Limbs. You do not hear the cry of the ruined Innocent over the roar of the great shining Zepplin.


We're also starting a charity aspect. We're hoping to get flower sellers at Arisia (and other cons too hopefully!) in full steampunk flower seller regalia. We will be donating all proceeds to Bridge Over Troubled Waters, a Boston runaway shelter and resource center for troubled teens.

Are you crafty? We're starting an Ebay Store for Jane's Army, also benefiting Bridge Over Troubled Waters, a Boston runaway shelter and resource center for troubled teens.

Our first project will be steampunk armwarmers. If you would like to participate, email janesarmy (at) gmail (dot) com with suggested retail price and your store if you want a plug and pictures of your arm warmers. We'll email you an address to send them to. Deadline: July 1st 2010.



We're starting a revolution and we want you to be part of it! We want to see Jane's Army out in full force at conventions and steampunk events!

janesarmy, signal boosts appreciated!


* Read all about it in The Anachronist's Cookbook by Catherynne M. Valente, Steampunk Tales Issue 1

The Future of SalonCon [Nov. 30th, 2009|12:04 pm]
The Victorian Era for the 21st Century

corvaxgirl
Gentle Readers,

I still can't give much detail here yet, but we're still in talks. Basically, to give you some idea of what's going on, we're looking for a localish convention that we can be added to. Thishas become more fashionable at larger cons (i.e. having "cons within cons"). What this will do for us is make it so we can focus on giving you the quality programming you love, instead of worrying about our bills.

We've had several offers, we're currently in talks to see which one will be best for the future of SalonCon. Please bear with us, we hope to have some more definative answers for you within the next several months.

Happy Holidaze Season!

with love,
Deb
Minitrix of Organization

Hi,

I had purchased this necklace at the last Salon Con, and then promptly lost her contact information. I would like to see what else she has.

Thanks!

Cat Valente [Jun. 11th, 2009|03:35 pm]
The Victorian Era for the 21st Century

corvaxgirl
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Catherynne M. Valente's work, she is most famous for her gorgeous fairy tales (Orphan's Tales, Vol. I & II), which won the prestigious Tiptree award and her skinpunk revolution, Palimpsest. She was featured in MTV News' documentuary on the Steampunk movement and is a beloved member of the convention scene.

This economy has been difficult for everyone, but it's been especially difficult for those in creative lines of work. As you may know, Catherynne M. Valente's (catvalente) fiance, justbeast was laid off six months ago. While they have both been working diligently since then, Cat on her writing and D trying to pick up freelance work, the cold hard fact is right now it's not enough.

Cat and D are in rather dire straits as Cat describes here.

We need each other, folks. If we are going to practice what we preach about being a community, we as artists and dreamers need to hold each other up when things get hard. And things have gotten hard for Cat and D, so we need to help hold them up too.

How You Can Help:

1. Join the Omikuji Project.

2. Buy E-Books or Steampunk Tales Issue One.

3. Sign up for The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland (TBA)

4. Put an item or service, no matter how big or small, up for auction on this journal for people to bid on. Bids will be conducted in the comments and payment and shipping is to be determined by the seller.

5. Donate.

6. Spread the word.
