20,000 Leagues Under The Sea Themed Leather Swiss Waist.

In the eye of the Maelstromme

I am creating a new range of Victorian style Swiss waists / belts in both leather and fabrics.  This is the first one I have made in leather; themed 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea for Steamcon III, Seattle, with the classic Kraken attacking a ship image and part of chapter 18 of Jules Verne’s book etched onto the leather belt.

Professor Maelstromme is mentioned by GEEKDAD

I am very excited GEEKDAD mentioned my name and I really do exist!

Worth checking out is a new book create your own Steampunk Gear, Gadgets and Gizmos written by Thomas Willeford of Brute Force Studios – it  had a great review on Wired.com by GEEKDAD.   GEEKDAD brings to our attention Professor Maelstromme as one of the friends and charachters who inspired Thomas in writing his book and creating his art in Dramatis Personae, Appendix B .   GEEKDAD said ” Each project chapter has a fun little one-page fictional story, and you can tell Thomas has had some fun with many of his fictional characters — Professor Isadora Maelstromme, ”   Hello! 🙂
