    It’s funny ‘cause people back home think that space travel’s gonna be all whizzing about, and teleports, anti-gravity. But it’s not, is it? It’s tough.

    Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!

    Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics. 

    A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.

    With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!

    Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.

    So here are some buzz words~

    Natural colors!
    Art Nouveau!
    Handcrafted wares!
    Tailors and dressmakers!
    Streetcars!
    Airships!
    Stained glass window solar panels!!!
    Education in tech and food growing!
    Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
    Solar rooftops and roadways!
    Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
    Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
    No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
    Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!

    Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction!  Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

    Zodiac Libra fact — When Libra feels hurt by someone, they will likely ignore that person for a while. They can also get explosive if continuously provoked.

    This is horrendously accurate. Just sayin’.

    Let’s check in on the decadent, completely inedible, yet perfectly wearable shoes from The Shoe Bakery (previously featured here). The Orlando, Florida-based company is run by Chris Campbell, who loves both shoes and sweets so much that he decided to combine them in the form of outrageously tantalizing ice cream, cake and donut-themed footwear.

    If you’ve got a specific dessert and shoe combination in mind, Campbell happily accepts custom orders. Each mouthwatering pair of Shoe Bakery shoes takes about 3-6 weeks to design, create and ship. Prices range from $200 to $400 US, which should provide you with all the more incentive to refrain from trying to eat them.

    Visit The Shoe Bakery’s website to check out more of their enticingly iced footwear.

    everybody wants to rule the world || lorde

    there’s a room where the light won’t find you
    holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
    when they do i’ll be right behind you
    so glad we’ve almost made it, so sad we had to fade it
