Gearhearts Steampunk Glamor Revue Needs YOU!
What are we?
We're a Steampunk pinup magazine. A lavish Steampunk extravaganza. Gorgeous Steampunk models in intricate, neo-Victorian garb; reviews, interviews, artistic expressions, and even some prose thrown in for good measure.
Why are we asking you for money?
We want to expand. We'd like to put together a real website. We'd like to start a line of merchandise (t-shirts, posters, shotglasses - anything you can think of, we want to make). We'd like to attend more conventions so we can chat about gorgeous Steampunk in person. Most importantly, we'd love to be able to pay artists and photographers what they deserve instead of what we can currently afford (hint: it's nowhere near what their talents are worth).
That sounds great. What do I get out of the deal?
Besides our undying gratitude? Lots! There are all sorts of perks listed on this page, from buttons to magazines to starring in a Lucky K. Holliday story to an actual partridge in an actual pear tree.
We know the economy is tough. We know you're broke. So are we. If you can give anything at all, we'll put your name on a special thank you page on the website.
We also have an exclusive offer for the first three cherished donors who offer $100 or more. The fantastic artist Brigid Ashwood, whose breathtaking Steampunk creations will appear in issue 6, has generously offered prints of her artwork for this project. The first three people to donate $100 or more will receive a print of one of her most gorgeous pieces of art. (Her shop for the interested: http://www.etsy.com/shop/brigidashwood?ref=si_shop)
