All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Extreme Steam

Sometimes Steampunk is subtle and sometimes it is so not.1. Steampunk Vader helmet and chest piece - Creaturefeature13
2. High collars and long trains - wrinkledhermit
3. Steampunk FUCNTIONAL CLOCKWORK Corset and Pannier - idolatre
4. Skirt, Maroon and Black - darkfusionboutique
Sometimes I like to imagine a life where I could dress as Steamy as I liked everyday and never feel out of place. Never in my wildest dreams however did I dream of quite these extremes of handmade steam. Scifi steampunk goodness in a helmet, a dress that combines bizarre architecture with a working clock. Or even just fantastic a costuming element that demands attention.
