If we ever get to the post-apocalyptic era, I hope everyone dresses like this. Hot damn.
I have reblogged these before but I still like them. Especially bottom left.
Seriously, we need more post-apocalyptic and cyberpunk dystopia fashion. Let’s get on that.

My what a lovely Space Oddity you are. Artist Jenn Mann makes these awesome LED Space Helmets. She made the first one as part of a Major Tom costume for a David-Bowie-themed party. And now she makes them for other aspiring astronauts:
This astronaut helmet has a visor that opens and closes all the way so you can talk to other people or say “brb, going into space.” LEDs are arranged around the inside back of the helmet so it glows from the inside. The back of the helmet is painted solid white.
The visor pivots (they hold the visor to the helmet) are custom-designed and can be printed in one of several different day-glo colors! Currently available are fluorescent yellow, fluorescent green, and fluorescent orange. They’re UV-reactive, so they actually fluoresce when the LEDs are blue. The acrylic helmet is lightweight, but comes with a bit of padding for contact points on your shoulders and the back of your head.
LEDs on the inside light up in 16 different colors. Includes a remote control to change LED color. Comes with a 12V battery pack that lasts for hours and hours (more than 8h in my experience).
The helmets are available on a made-to-order basis via Jenn’s Etsy shop, SimpleAsPi.
Below is a guest post from Kasey Kagawa, a biologist, “self-enforced perpetual student,” and friend of the blog. Hopefully it will give further dimension to the ever-evolving discussions of “what Solarpunk means.” If you’re interested in writing a guest post of your own, feel free to ask or submit something.
Big Ideas, when they first start out, are like children: they grow and develop the quickest running wild and free, covering fields of topics both hither and yon. It’s also true that the mark of a more developed and mature Big Idea is that, while they are no less wide-ranging, there are guideposts for discussion and thought, ways to sort the little ideas into different groups so they can get together more easily to breed lots of other little ideas. Solarpunk, while still a young Big Idea, already encompasses ideas as divergent as carving mountainsides to function as giant water-based computers, promoting battery arrays for home energy storage, and liquid fluoride-thorium reactors. The distance between the ends on the scales of production, implementation, and technological availability are so vastly different that it makes having a discussion about “solarpunk” as a whole unwieldy at best, with one person talking about encouraging disaster preparedness and survival skills while another is discussing engineering crop variability to benefit small communities operating without the benefit of electricity.
That’s why, in the interest of facilitating discussion over what kinds of ideas and projects are embodied by the solarpunk idea and giving everyone a framework to place their ideas into in relation to everyone else’s thoughts, we have put together three axes - Time, Technology, and Scale, that ideas can be placed on. These three axes are not intended to limit thought or discussion, nor are they to mark any ideas as off limits. There are no boundaries, no idea that will not fit on these axes. Instead, they allow us to better understand what ideas fit together, point out connections that might otherwise be missed and allow us to better present plans for implementation and discussion.
