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.

Monday, August 10, 2009


Welcome friends and new explorers to the redesigned Wunderkammer. It has a new look, but rest assured, I will continue to showcase the same Steamy, Gothy and different finds.To celebrate the new look, I am proud to present:

The Great Wunderkammer Giveaway!

The Rules:
-Troll though the Wunderkammer's many posts
-Pick your favorite post or featured item and then come back here to this blog post, and leave a comment telling me what it was (if you can't find anything perhaps this giveaway is not for you.)
-Your comment profile must include contact information, if it doesn't be sure to leave a valid email address in your comment or your entry is void.(if I can't tell you that you won, what good is entering)
-This step is mandatory to be entered!!!

But wait there's more

-For an additional entry, simply follow the Wunderkammer (if you already follow the blog, just let me know in your comment)
-For another additional entry, tweet this giveaway, then leave a comment with a link to your tweet (you can follow me on twitter too...if you want)
-Finally for two entries, blog about this giveaway on your own blog, facebook, livejournal, ect. (complete with links and pictures), and come back and leave a link to your post.
-This contest is open to residents of the Earth only, seriously all humans welcome, aliens not so much.
-Contest ends on Friday August 21st. Winners will be chosen by random number generator and announced the following Monday.

Did I say winners... plural? Yes, I did. Here's where this giveaway is a bit different. You see, I always found it a bit anti productive to plug someone else's giveaway thus reducing my chances of winning. What if, however, more entrants meant more prizes? Here's my solution, for every 25 unique individuals(not entries) entering another prize will be added to the list. So if 26 people enter, I will add a second prize, 51 another until all seven prizes are unlocked.

Now the prizes all graciously donated by featured Artisans:
Prize 1:SteamPunk Key Pendant by Aranel

Prize 2:Absinthe Magnet by WinonaCookie

Prize 3:Leather Circlet Crown by Tom Banwell

Prize 4:$30 Gift Certificate to Adornments For Tarts by Choklit

Prize 5:Scotch Liquor Label Necklace by BellaLili

Prize 6:
Gear Necklace by Zkitten

Prize7:Custom Drawstring Bustle Skirt by Crescentwench

Remember each prize is only available once we reach the right amount of entrants. So get commenting and spreading the word about the Great Wunderkammer Giveaway and our different discoveries.

Also a huge thank you to Sarah of IndustrialFairyTale for the amazing blog makeover. Be sure to stop by her etsy shop as well for amazing art and jewelry.

Ahhh, too hard to pick, but I often randomly wish that I had the set of 4 octopus tentacle earrings from #72, alas they are sold out... not that I could afford them anyway! OctopusMe's got a crapton of other awesome tentacly goodness, though.

Also, I already follow, I have blogged here: http://mermaidligan.blogspot.com/2009/08/squee-worthy-giveaway.html and twittered here: http://twitter.com/millarca/status/3225221090 Do those need to be separate comments?

TotusMel said...

You're good with one as long as it's got everything listed & it does...good luck!

Marcheline said...

My favorite? Monday, March 30,2009 - Gadgets and Gizmos! I adore the steampunkery of machine art. Excellent!

Sara said...

I'm so happy! This is a fabulous way to start this week- thanks! I have three favorites- I couldn't choose.

I live in t-shirts and love it, so of course, July 13th- I want them all.
July 8th's bolero by motheroflondon should have been mine.
And the velvet draped dress on March 31st (although I like everything that day) is gorgeous!

I've retweeted you (vikki77) too.

Unknown said...

One of my favorite posts was the GAS one with the post-apocalyptic circus woman print (of course) and I also liked the one with the post-apocalyptic artwork but I couldn't find that specific post when I searched...? It was hard to narrow it down to be honest. :)

Sewicked said...

I was so torn. You've had so many things that I love. There's the Heretic Halter, the motheroflondon bolero, black linen steampunk short-sleeved top, etc. Finally though, I decided. I lurrrv the rust oak leak vixen pirate coat.

I've been following you for ages. I'll go ahead & retweet (I know some people who should really see your stuff).

It's very hard to pick just one! But I'm going with Chicken Legs: (http://totusmelswunderkammer.blogspot.com/2009/05/chicken-legs.html) as I have an endless fixation on dead birds.

be back tomorrow to leave a blog link- of course Haute Macabre will be passing this along to our readers!

Unknown said...

oh so hard to pick! the little robot pendant from a few posts back is SO ADORABLE tho. (http://totusmelswunderkammer.blogspot.com/2009/08/robot.html)

I'll be posting about this tomorrow, send a couple more people your way (and I tweeted already - http://twitter.com/Emi_FTLoB) - that skirt is simply to die for, gotta make sure it gets unlocked!

It's so hard to choose - and i've been secretly lurking for so long! But recently, your Far East post (http://totusmelswunderkammer.blogspot.com/2009/07/far-east.html) spoke to me - i adore the bustle dress especially (which is odd - i'm not usually drawn to anything with pink hues). As far as mind candy, I enjoyed the Post Apocalyptic set of images, particularly the first and last ones.

Here's a valid contact email:
matt_owns_me(at) yahoo(dot)com

i'm a follower of yours through that same email.

Anonymous said...

That traveller pendant really does it for me! I love that whole post - the sense of the unknown. I hope it's ok for this to be linked to my blog as a contact in case I am lucky. I check my blog everyday. The last time I left an email address in a comment I got massively spammed. I'm also a follow of your blog through bloglines. I love it!

This is an easy one for me! I so loved the Bettie B Dangerous swimsuit on July 3rd that I bought it. I am SO completely in love with this suit. I have literally never loved a suit like I love this one. Thanks!!!

Just one? Ouch. So many to love, but I think I shall go with "Running the Gauntlet"--hadn't seen it until tonight.

AndiB said...

And I tweeted here:


Kiwi said...

This was the first time I was pointed in the direction to your site (and it's now on my RSS feed) and I'd have to say that the one I love most is the sailor gear post. Just because it's so anti-the usual with its colors (white and navy?!) and yet it falls into the vintage, sweetly adorable style that gets overlooked for the usual corsets and ruffles and black and brown. The 1950s had awesome style AND hourglass figures. I'm really happy to start hunting down more stuff like that to round out my closet.

Secondary, vain love for the cute animals post (and all others similar that include creatures), since that's the basis of my illustrations and I can't get enough of them.

Trista said...

Love the new layout!

My favorite post was this one about the alternative little black dress:

The rest of us need an option outside of classic chanel-like garbs!

I have been a follower since the beginning.

I just tweeted about the contest. Thanks for this opportunity!

I enjoy this blog thoroughly so keep up the good work!

Ok - now that I cleared the drool off the keyboard...too much goodness to pick just one. I always love anything by Catherinette but that Steampunk Quilt Aranel rocks!
I love taking the classic and twisting it (well, I suppose that describes most of these goodies...), but there is something about that one that just stays with me.

I also tweeted the giveaway (was already following you - great, now I sound like a stalker)

Plus - I am a blog follower (see, still stalky)

Well, it's rather a toss up between the post with Bertram the Mechanical bird and the one with the octopus pendants. So difficult to choose, though and so very glad to have found your site. I've been clinging to this aesthetic for so many years, that I still haven't quite grasped that it's been named and officialized.

I think it has to be he Corseted Buckled Gother Leather Coat. Though the Luxuria Bolero jacket would make a perfect gift for a person I know...

I was especially taken with the "Decadant Designs" post from March 31, 2009. The Blueberry Romance Sweet Melancholy Mary tunic from AttilaDesign is to *die* for.

hello i follow your blog! if I must pick a favorite I would have to say the cicadas feature... I'm still oddly nostalgic for those insects, since I now, sadly, live in a cicada-free area of the country. I also loved the features on ephemera, especially in jewelry and art objects. I find your blog very creatively inspiring, so thank-you!

Oh, my, how dreadfully difficult to choose just one favourite post!
Out of all the myriad intriguing and lovely items, I have to nominate the darling little air kraken from 9 July's post. My best friend is having her first in October... that is a dreadfully tempting little shower gift.


Gypsy Thornton said...

Ooh, ooh! Can't choose! The brass jhournal, no! The steampunk bra.. Oh, Old Absinthe armwarmers, no wait! Steampunk Alice!

I am pretty in love with all the Cabinets you featured in your July 17th post... i can't believe these are/were all on Etsy! i'm obviously not looking hard enough.

It's so hard to choose!! I think my favorite featured item at the moment is the Black Peacock Feather Train Goth Wedding Gown Corset Bustier Sweetheart from LOVEKARLAK made in your May 7th LBD post:http://totusmelswunderkammer.blogspot.com/2009/05/little-black-dress.html.
I also especially love the Gear Necklace in this giveaway!

It's so hard to pick just one thing, because I lust after everything on this site. I think my favorite though is the Taxidermy Gothic Victorian Hairpice by Lovedtodeath, from the May 28 post "Chicken Legs." I have a soft spot of taxidermy.


Digital Misfit said...

Every post has something that I am intrigued by, or simply adore!
One of my favorites is from the July 24 post Miscellany - the Steampunk Metal Bra series 002 - brooksbot75. Seriously - how fabulous is that?!

+Following! I can't believe I wasn't a follower sooner.

+I will be posting on my own blog about the giveaway, complete with pictures and link, on Friday. (Next scheduled posting day.)

+Finally, I am fond of so many of the things on here, but an item that really got my attention was the "Lion's Golden Eye", mentioned in this post. I'm a Leo, and I'm a sucker for steam-y eyepatches and monocles.

My entry into steampunk is a love of clockwork, so my favorite post has to be the Clockwork one: http://totusmelswunderkammer.blogspot.com/2009/05/clockwork.html
Such lovely clockwork art (I like 2D and 3D clockwork).

I've also RTed the giveaway: http:twitter.com/magzkam

Paige said...

Oh, picking a favorite is soooo hard... there's so much awesome here... but I'm gonna say http://totusmelswunderkammer.blogspot.com/2009/04/animal.html, especially the Cyborg Seahorse Necklace... Though the steampunk rustic wear from April 24th was a close second...

Julian DiMarco is my favorite. What wonderful creations! Thanks for finding all these great things.

Adele said...

The Gas post was totally creepy in a bad Dr. Who flashback kind of way. (Mummy?)

But I really liked the Odd post with the Steampunk Gears by metalforge. Totally awesome.


And the website is beautiful!

HOW has your wonderful blog existed for so long without me noticing it? *agonizes* Gothy steampunkness and Etsy--I am so in love.

As for my entry, this post is my favorite: http://totusmelswunderkammer.blogspot.com/2009/04/gothic-glamour.html, and that Drusilla Tiara is a wonder to behold. It's a treasure. I'm saving the pictures just so I can drool over it whenever I need a good gothic jewelry fix.

And that bustle skirt is FAB-U-LOUS. The little hitch in the peplum is the perfect touch.

Birdie! said...

I totally follow you here.... and on Twitters.... and tweeted you.... (recently, even: http://twitter.com/Birdiee/status/3289243747) and I love all the robot posts (R.O.B.O.T) and the jacket post (I think I should make one!) and gears and explorers.

Basically I net stalk you cus you have the most amazing Steamy finds. xo

Gypsy Eyes Jewelry said...

Absolutely Absinthe!
Love the looks, love the drink. Lucky me I have partook on more than one occasion of the real deal. T'would be that much more magical if my drink hand were enrobed in Raven Eve's
Olde Absinthe Lace Slave Cuff Armwarmer

I stumbled onto your blogspot and into a wonderful new Steamy world. I am intrigued and look forward to further exploration. I checked out a post on Aug. 7 about Steamy Art and found much that I liked,and even more that I loved! Thank you!

victats@gmail.com said...

At first I thought Creepy (cute but creepy) that was in July, then I saw the Oh Alice on June 29th. That's my favorite. I love Strangelings art and the dress is too fun!

Lacy B Timeless said...

I found you thanks to Myke Amend, and I'm so happy I did!

I read through all of your posts, they're all so wonderful! I can't pick just one, so I'll settle for the following:

Lace, one of my favourite things in the world, Top Hats, Necking, Gothic Princess for their feminine charm and inspiration.

Both Cabinet posts, because I'm a big Wunderkammer enthusiast and make my own.

Both Gadget posts, because they make me dream I COULD make my own.

Wow, Art, Deap Sea Adventures(discovered WinonaCupcake here-happy), Woman, Absinthe, and Wow....and Bunnies, as I am a bunny fanatic!

See, I couldn't settle on one,:0

I added you on Twitter and tweeted here:

posted to Facebook here:

and I'm now following you!

Oh, and I'd not heard of Julian DiMarco before, so that was brilliant also, and have bookmarked Mr. Able as well! Thanks!

Thanks for the chance to win one of these fabulous prizes. I just signed up to follow your blog. The most difficult thing is just to pick one entry/featured item but I’m going to choose the Silver Poet Aristocrat – CelestialShadow from July 23rds “Fantasy” post. Although I really do love it all.

I live for the Queen of Hearts necklace by 3rexesjewelry.

Also, I love the necklace and bracelet combo I purchased from you.

This is my favorite post: http://totusmelswunderkammer.blogspot.com/2009/04/curious-creatures.html for two reasons. Firstly, the octopus chandelier is just too cool. Secondly, it led me to the blog of the creator, which I enjoy very much. I also enjoy your blog very much and have it in my booksmarks. Thanks for the contest!

Alice said...

You have lots of great stuff, but my very favourite is the Gothic Glamour post from April 30th. Pure gorgeousness.

I think one of my favorites is "here comes the sun." I hunt and hunt every summer for NON-flowery sun dresses, and almost always come up short. But I love almost everything you have posted here!
