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.

A Few Tools You Might Be Missing1. The steampunk communicator - working computer - maduncle
2. The Deuces Wild - liquidsolution
3. My Evil Scientist goggles - doubleastitching
4. Steampunk Rocket Pack - OttotheConfused
People complain that Steampunk culture has dissolved into purely a decorative look. That is no longer celebrates the mechanical creativity that it was founded upon. They're right to a degree of course, but that doesn't mean that the tinkers have given up shop. They're about making things that work, that inspire and come from that place in the imagination where the past that never was and the future that still might be exists.

I would really love to wear goggles like those but I might get funny looks considering the rest of my wardrobe.

Actually, maybe that would be awesome? (And the fact that I could actually wear them over my specs would be pretty awesome too for... say... when I own a bike - with a sidecar of course!)
