Fyodor KrasniyFounder, Madness and Tea.
“In my spare time, I enjoy working on visual art. In all my other time,
Krasniy’s work is one trip to a lunatic asylum, glasses filled to the brim with laudanum occupying a strange universe where beauty takes on a different meaning and precision and perfection are fraught with fragments and bouts of madness. Nothing is ever as it seems in Krasniy’s world. And with this, a Victorian era deportment, a noble yet profound charm and a slightly askew take on reality combine to create his absurd, manic and beautiful works

I make steampunk accessories and am willing to do custom orders. From jewellery and hat adornments to wrist warmers and costume weapons



Of Science & Swords was formerly a speciality retailer of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Speculative Fiction literature, with over a decade of continuous operation in a retail environment in the heart of Melbourne. During that time we noticed that nerds and geeks were finally rising to their true and rightful place in society thanks to the mainstreaming of big, action comic book based movies, the prevalence of internet cultures, and generally progressive attitudes.

During that time towards the end of the first decade of the 21st century we decided we could be more than just books and started selling things to make those the fantasy (or SciFi we guess) come true! We started selling props and replicas and it wasn't long until we branched into Live Action RolePlay, or LARP.

Sourcing from brands all over the world such as Epic Armoury, Calimacil, Palnatoke, and many more, we are able to provide not just weapons and armour, but also a complete range of clothing, accessories, prosthetics, makeup and general knick knacks. We can help you be an elf, orc, knight, whatever!
Don't dream: BE IT!
