    Chow 180:: The STEAMPUNK HAREM

    Chow 180:: The STEAMPUNK HAREM

    ROUND #180:: The STEAMPUNK HAREM

    DESCRIPTION

    They are pampered and preened for the Sultan and Sultana. Doused with pungent oils, washed with lavender and cinnamon scented perfumes, their skins perfect and their complexions refined and painted to reflect the whim of their master and mistress.

    They are treated with respect and adoring attention, but they are prisoners; birds in a gilded-cage. They are the concubines of the king and queen, the harem slaves of oriental fantasy. But the world these particular chattels inhabit is a Steampunk world.

    This week design a Steampunk harem boy or girl. Either gender, it’s up to you; and environment is also at your own discretion. This harem is fantasy, and we suggest looking at odalisques and Victorian Orientalist painting as inspiration, but keep in mind their costume and world they inhabit is Steampunk.

    If you’re not familiar with Steampunk, just type it into Google and browse the enormous amount of reference there is. Some reference for Orientalist art here:

    http://www.orientalist-art.org.uk/

    http://www.orientalist-art.org.uk/harem.html

    http://www.alloilpaint.com/orientalist/p1.htm

    Also remember this is a forum for all ages, so please bear that in mind in your design.

    Thank you.

    Holy crap what an awesome idea. Good opportunity to practice design, I should think.

    Sounds fun, though I wonder if anyone even realizes what 'steampunk' really is anymore.

    Indeed! It will be interesting to see if anyone takes a historical approach, as in taking the technology of the area and culture and giving it a 'steam' twist.

    I may have to drag myself from my self-imposed exile from the world in general to take part in this one... Pretty boys and steampunk? How delectably delightful!
