Fashion for Neopets

A while ago, I had noticed some steampunk sneaking into Neopets of all places. Just a bit at first. One of the games called the Haunted Shooting Gallery had the look.

A few clothes, like bowlers and a flight helmet.

So I kitted out my pets with whatever I could find to get a steamy look.
Now they have an entire section called Moltara City with lots more steampunk things being added all the time.

They are doing a pretty good job of the designs, while maintaining the whimsy. Quite fun.

I know one of the artists snuck in a group picture of Neopets meant to represent the Firefly crew. I just don't remember where to find it. While not directly steamy, I think it is certainly steam-friendly.
Good find on the new stuff!

and there was that mini plot thing with Hoban the navigator... who later got an avatar saying "Leaf on the wind". I might have squeed a bit too much haha.

I have so much love for the steampunkery <3 There's an awful lot in the mall, as well. My pets are decked out, just waiting to get the inventor's coat for Cajfa.

Its been ages since I've been on Neopets. Nice to see their getting along just fine.

It's been so long for me that I didn't even know that pets could actually wear the clothing owners bought for them! Maybe I should revisit...

I noticed this early on in the AotA plot. And well before that, there were several steamy NC items, like clockwork wings, goggles, and the like, but I'm not an NC Mall kind of person. I think it's a nice touch. I do want to steamify my Cybunny eventually, but I have so many avatar goals left that I don't want to spend the NP on it yet.

I miss neopets so much! The last time I tried to play it had been long enough since I logged on that they asked me for my birthday in addition to all the other stuff. I had made my account back in high school when I hated to put my real birthday on anything and couldn't remember what I said. My poor "dying" pets.

The same thing happened to me, but one of my Neofriends told me what my age was showing as and I figured out what it was. I had only changed the year.
Maybe that would help?

I think I tried changing the year to match my "age" but it didn't work, so I must have just picked a random date. It's been so long since I've played anyway that it's not a big deal.

Aw bummer sorry to hear it. :( did you try Jan 01? I think that's the most common fake birthday.

Dec. 17th, 2009 05:37 pm (UTC)
It's definitely not Jan 1. I think I'm just going to start a new account anyway. That way I'll be able to get one of the dozens of new pets that they've no doubt added since I've been there last!

Unsolicited advice incoming! But I hope it helps....

If you write into Support using the form below and include all the info about the account you can remember, there's a *small* chance they'll reset the birthday for you so you can log in. It's a long shot, but it's worth a try if you really want your old stuff back. :)

(If you know the email address on the account and still have access to it, use that when you fill out the form. It would give you a better chance!)

Goodness, I can't remember most of that! I couldn't even remember what I had named my first pet. I miss the money in my bank account and the lab ray, but I'll just have to build my stuff back up again!

I haven't touched my Neopets account in ages - possibly all year. Do I really want to get reacquainted with the time-waster that Neopets is? Yeah, I think I do.

I never realised thia much steampunky stuff had come out!

Maybe I should make that my new project/goal/whatever... get my pets steamed up. Too bad mutants can't wear anything.

I came back to Neopets last month and like some of you, didn't even know you could make your pets WEAR clothes now..but as soon as I saw all the Steampunk love I went crazy. A friend of mine bought me a NC money card in USA but now Im tryign to decide with a cool head what steampunk stuff to buy and what not! argh!

Anyone wanna be neofriends? hahahah. my main account is sailorlove_98 (shh, I was 12 when I created it!)
