    I hesitated being involved in the community, however, because I had some reservations about what it meant to be in steampunk. Would I have to pretend to be British? As someone whose family suffered directly from imperial powers, did I want to romanticize that this time period as one of heedless adventure? My grandparents and my parents are from Vietnam while it was part of French Indochina, being a citizen of empire isn’t as great as steampunk might imagine it to be. I discussed this with someone from the steampunk community at the time that I had a problem with steampunk and colonialism, and they replied, “Oh, you don’t have to worry about that— although we’re Americans, for example, we can pretend that America is still part of the colonies!” Which missed the point of my question entirely.

    So when creating my steamsona (aka steampunk character), I thought of what I would like to see as a SF character based on my family heritage. One hundred and fifty years ago, I’d like to see a female assassin who shoots French imperialists in the face — and so Ay-leen the Peacemaker was born.

  6. So, I really, REALLY need money right now.

    godheadharley:

    I really need money for Otakon this weekend. I have gotten literally 0 commissions and I will get little to no money from my family as we are struggling to come up with the rent this month and are trying to pay for my mother’s physical therapy as she has been in the hospital for over seven months now. I do not beg for money (though if you really, really want to give, go ahead), so I have resorted to selling some of my things that I don’t need as much. If you want to pick up at Otakon, you don’t have to pay shipping and you can pay in cash. If you can’t, I really will need the money through Paypal by Friday and I will ship it out as soon as possible (though I have to charge for shipping). I’m being really fair with my prices because I am pretty desperate, so please consider buying something or at least reblog for signal boost.

    Here’s what I have:

    iPod Touch 4g 32GB: $80

    It’s in perfect working condition and has absolutely no major scratches in the screen and is not cracked. The metal back is scuffed from normal use. Never had any water damage or any major drops. This is a great price, as ones in similar condition (light wear, no cracks) can go for well over $100 on ebay. 

    AM WWII Replica Compass: $18

    Perfect condition, never used, and perfect for any steampunk cosplay. The piece is functional and completely metal and glass (no plastic) and even has a sight. It’s a bit hard to open since it’s never been used. Goes for $30+ online. Comes with the original box. 

    Lucky Star/Generic Winter Sailor Fuku Uniform: $30 

    Fits sizes US 14-16. Worn once, no stains or holes. Includes top and skirt. 

    I also have an old acoustic guitar for sale. It’s a Trump Model TS27 with light wear. It also has a cheap case. Unfortunately, it would be ungodly expensive to ship this thing, so you’d have to pick it up from my house. I also have no idea what it’s worth. If you’re interested, I can provide pictures. 

    So yeah. I’m pretty desperate for cash right now. Please don’t force me to borrow money from my friends. I have super cheap commissions open right now. Thanks for reading and/or reblogging. 

    Message me here or send an email to milkymaelstrom (at) aol (dot) com if you’re interested. This is also my paypal email.

    Edit: Now with working pics.
