Steampunk Top Hat - DIY/Tutorial

For the WGT 2015 I made my own steampunk hat.  Since I am creating a new steampunk outfit at the moment, I needed a new hat as well. And maybe some of you want to make one on your own as well:)


These are the things that you will need:

- a camping mat out of foam rubber for the main part of the hat

-  a pen, a ruler, tape, scissors and a geometry compass.

- some sheets of paper and a measurement band

- for this type of steampunk hat you also require some textile (I choose a brown color)

- some things to decorate it like an old clockwork, buttons and parts of an old curtain

- a hot glue gun


For the hat I wore at the WGT I used foam sheets to make the little metal plates and painted the hat first black and then with bronze color.

Industrial Dance - Delight - Solitary Experiments

I choose a more serious topic for this video. Or the topic choose me. I had some friends who just recently lost one of their parents. Most of them due to some kind of disease. This made me really sad and worried about my own family. Making this video helped me express and overcome some of my worries. Special thanks and many hugs go to my mom, who helped me making this video.

Ost+Front Concert

Ost+Front Concert picture

I went to a Ost+Front Concert in Dresden yesterday. The concert was really good. The "Bunker" was pretty full but not too crowded so that you still could move and dance. The location had a nice sound as well. The stage show was good. Nothing extraordinary, but I go to concerts anysways for the music and dancing.

Cat shooting :) with Christian Plath Photography

Two weeks ago I had a nice shooting with Christian Plath Photography. Here you can see now some of the pictures.


It was a lovely day, even so it was a little cold outside. And sometimes the sun annoyed as a little - because she appeard and vanish and therefore made the lightening for the photos more difficult.


But I really, really love the outcome. The pictures are just awesome.


A big thank you also to the nice assistens for helping with the lightening and general support:) She has a little blog herself if you want to check her out: Kauket.


Especially nice going to the café afterwards - warming up with a hot cappuchino.


The rest of the pictures are here. =)

Industrial Dance Definition

Industrial  dance (ID) is a dance primarily danced to industrial music, EBM, hardstyle, noise, that has roots in the gothics clubs of Europe (Germany) and USA in the late 1990´s, early 2000. The exact date/origin is unknown. Industrial dance videos become popluar online around 2009 (YouTube).

 

 The main elements of industrial dance include “arm movements”, kicks, spins and "Footwork".  ID  is often improvisational in nature and emphasizes on fast and complex arm-orientated movements combined with hip movements, as well as footwork.

The dance moves are practiced until they can be used intuitive in freestyle. But there are a couple of dance crew that also make choreographies.

 

 

There are different styles of industrial:

-         "USA": more leg movement and spinning while the rest of the world uses more arms

-          Hard, "chop-style"

-          Softer, more like belly dance

 

Industrial Dancer can be found in goth or techno/hardstyle clubs, festivals and online (YouTube).

The main countries in which Industrial Dance can be found are: Germany, Mexico, UK, USA, Russia and other parts of the world.
