Welcome

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.

Gas

It's getter harder and harder to breath.1. Post Apocalyptic Circus Woman print - RichterFineArt
2. GASMASK solid sterling silver necklace - ballandchain
3. Steampunk gas mask in black leather - TomBanwell
4. A Day in the Park - 5x7 Steampunk/Apocalypse Collage - downanddirty
In the post apocalyptic wasteland, will the air be impossible to breath? Will there be a market for fine ladies gas masks? Will only the rich be able to stroll the streets safe from the toxicity or will we be made equal behind the same stark masks? I assume that the answer to these questions will only be found in our imaginations. So here are some of those imaginings.

I can completely see masks individualized according to fashion & the wearer's taste. See the helmets in Red Planet by Heinlein. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Planet_(novel))

I love all of these... who knew the common gas mask could be a thing of beauty? Love the circus one best of course...

Great collection, the ballandchain store also has an underpants necklace. Not steampunk, but very funny.
