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.

Welcome To The Steampunk Monkey Nation1. Sebastian Cluttermuck
2. Obediah Krinklenut
3. Xander Tiberius Crushington
4. Edwina Hornswoggler
Center: Steampunk Monkey Nation
All pieces by Chetart - Chet Phillips
I tried to pick just one of these monkeys to feature, I really did, but it was impossible. Each has such a distinctive personality and there has to be an amazing story behind each one. So I decided instead to feature the entire Steampunk monkey nation. So go check out the rest of the amazing family. I promise they're all as great as the few here.

Oh, and don't forget to enter the Great Wunderkammer Giveaway below!

Hooray Monkeys!!!

Xander Tiberius Crushington looks like he's wearing Tom Banwell's steampunk respirator!

Thanks for noticing, Choklit. I had to customize it to make it fit him. BTW, Xander was great to work with. No monkey business at all!

These are a trip!

Indeed, if not for Tom's wondrous design, Xander would have surely perished on Venomous Cloud Island in his attempt to rescue the daughter of Lord Humphery Flummoxton, Bubbles Prat.
Thanks Tom!
