Upcoming project: Steampunk Ottoman


Yep. I said it. Steampunk Ottoman!
First of all, you need to forgive the crappy illustration. It's been a while since I did some drawing, and not having even a mouse (let alone a tablet) didn't help with the colouring either. Anyway. I skipped most of the accessories/steampunk details in the drawing but apart from that, this is what I have in mind more or less.

I'm planning to make a steampunk version of harem headpieces (like the ones you can see in the collage, bottom row, third and fifth image) with gears, chains and stuff. For the jewelry, I think I'm gonna try to make a miniature version of a resin covered steampunk jewelry (image numbered 3) with harem style (the image just above the pendant)

The jacket will be a mesh-up of the image numbered 4 and the yellow one in the middle of the collage. I'm hoping to be able to make that hand thingie as well, but we'll see how it goes. And for the corset, I'm thinking about something like image 6.


Now, the real issue. Although I've gathered so many bits and pieces of fabrics and trims and other weeny materials over the years, I've never really tried my hand at neither steampunk nor ottoman style before. And I'm not sure if I actually have all the things I would need to finish this project.
Soooo, any kind of donation (fabric, scraps, trims, beads, old watches, watch pieces, chains... anything you think that might fit the style, really) will be very much welcomed and appreciated. And I'd like to send postcards with the lady to my donators once she's finished and photographed :)

Oh, also, any kind of advice is also as welcomed and appreciated :)
For those of you who really would like to help out but don't really have any materials lying around, you can still help out via paypal.

Thanks everyone in advance!

images I used for the headpiece reference are from the Turkish tv series "muhtesem yuzyil"
(I couldn't find the original source for the images which are not numbered. Let me know if you know the source)



Evet. Soyledim. Steampunk osmanli!
Herseyden once dandik cizimi bagislamanizi rica ediyorum. En son yaptigim cizimin uzerinden epey bi zaman gecti. Ayrica tablet bir yana mouse'umun bile olmayisinin renklendirmede pek ise yaradigini da soyleyemeyecegim. Velhasil, incik cincik steampunk aksesuarlarin cogunu es gectim cizimde ama iste kafamdaki sey asagi yukari bu.

Harem taclarinin (kolajdaki en alt siradaki ucuncu ve besinci resimdeki gibi) steampunk versiyonunu yapmayi planliyorum, carklar curklar, zincirler falan. Mucevherat icin sanirim 3 numarali resimdekinin minyatur versiyonu resin kaplama bir sey deneyecegim, tabii yine harem stilinde (sag ust kosedeki resim)

Ceket icin 4 numarali resimdekinin ve ortadaki sarinin karisimi bir sey dusunuyorum. O el zimbirtisini yapabilmeyi de umuyorum ama bakalim, gorcez. Korse de 6 numarali resimdekine benzer olacak sanirim.


Gelelim esas mevzuya. Her ne kadar yillar icinde bir dolu kumas parcasi, dantel, ve diger ufak tefek malzemeler toplamis olsam da simdiye kadar ne steampunk ne de osmanli stilini denedim. Ve acikcasi ihtiyacim olacak tum malzemelerin elimde oldugundan da emin degilim.
Yaniii, her turlu bagisa (kumas, kumas artigi, kenar susu, incik boncuk, eski saat, saat parcalari, zincir... stile uyacagini dusundugunuz her turlu sey acikcasi) acigim ve en ufak seyin bile pek makbule gececegini belirtmek isterim. Ayrica bagiscilarima da hanimkizin bir kartpostalini yollamak istiyorum bitip de fotograflari cekildikten sonra.

Ha, ayni zamanda her turlu elestiri ve oneriyi de bagislar kadar heyecanla bekliyorum :)
Etrafta gonderecek malzemesi olmayan ama yine de cok yardim etmek isteyenler olursa, onlar da yardimlarini paypal araciligiyla yapabilirler.

Herkese simdiden cok tesekkurler!
