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.

Whoa Man

Excuse Me...Woman1. Sir Roso and I - SteampunkCouture
2. Ishtar print - Mesoputina
4. A Woman Waiting in Vintage Steampunk - MiraMasque
Okay, I'm just gonna put this out there. There are simply too few pictures of hot steampunk women...or men for that matter on the etsy. Not enough paintings, drawings nor photos. Get on it people, these were hard enough to find. Sure they were worth the effort, but I could certainly use some help here.

Oh Yes, I'm Back To The Little Black Dress1. Black Wool long bell Sleeve Mini dress Tunic - PinarEris
2. The off the shoulder Creme de la Creme soft 3/4 sleeve dress, black - lamixx
3. Rock and Bow Dress - bitchcraft
4. Winter sweater dress - JAlvo
No, I never tire of them. Yes, I will feature them again...and again...and again whether you like it or not. The little black dress as a t-shirt, a tunic, a sweater, whatever as long as I like the way that it looks. Bonus, most of these are actually affordable...no really.

So Shoot Me

I like A Ray Gun1. Raku Ray Gun - Simak Simulacrum - Rakumancy
2. Mc Tavish Galvanic Carbine - tinplatestudios
3. Old Vic Steampunk Retro Ray Gun - buildersstudio
4. ArcFire P-35 - VictorianVoltage
It's been a while so I thought I'd revisit the good old ray gun. Sure, they're a little more sci fi than steampunk, but I think they fit right in. Plus they've got those great stories in the listings that make me giggle and you don't actually have to worry about shooting your eyes out.

What's In A Face

Apparently, A Lot
2. Beard Tie - etching - linocutboy
3. Hortence J Pacadorf - Elephant Photographic Art Print - GrandOleBestiary
4. Anathema By Miss Macabre - doctormorose
I was randomly searching as I am wont to do when I stumbled upon our Mrs. Blackwell here and was strangely drawn to her visage. I felt compelled to find more portraits that commanded my attention with bizarre and compelling details. My travels led me in many different directions and there are far more pieces to share with you in the future. I hope these can hold you over until the Wunderkammer returns to the portrait.

In The New Year
1. Killer Ring (Not so) - saralagace
2. ethereal - mkwind
3. Anubis Ring - arosha
4. Personal Disruptor - Harlewood
Yeah, I know we've got some time left before the New Year gets here, but don't you want an amazing ring to wear when you do it. I know I do. So here are a few striking piece sure to be conversation pieces.

I Think The Air Is Different Here1. An Alleyway of Wonderment - TheLonelyPixel
2. Untitled - silentinfinite
3. Mad Scientist - bryancollins
4. Original Ink Drawing of Insectile Gentility - teahoyden
Sometimes what one piece of art has in common with another has little to do with subject. Sometimes it's simply about the feeling that a piece exudes. All of these are pieces of stories to me, just snapshots that make me wonder what? and why? They take me to a dark, yet wondrous place that I should like to know more about.

So, Really, What About White?1. White Dress - madameantoine
2. Victorian Lady Bridal Coat - bonzie
3. Shiro Lolita Goth Dress - gloomth
4. Cut Out Dress in White feat. Dirty Knees print - JamesAnthony
Sure, it took a bit longer to find appropriately striking white clothing, but look at this stuff. You are definitely going to get noticed in a dress made of men's shirts or printed with a skeleton. You will look Victorian and refined in that jacket, bride or not and the styling possibilities of the simple Lolita dress in white are nearly limitless. Perhaps it's time to give white a try.

They Aren't Just Cute As Everybody Supposes1. August, circus ringmaster - WoebegoneArt
2. Pewter Rabbit Pendant - CosmosMoon
3. Stood Up-rabbit Art - amberalexander
4. The Girls - MargaretMeyer
Not strictly steampunk, nor goth, but these pieces are gorgeous and have that just off enough feel to be perfect for the Wunderkammer. For the record, I love rabbits...I just don't trust them.

3. Entwined Nature Portrait - lightleaks
4. Ruth - renaeleataylor
First off, I have to admit that I stole these items from an etsy treasury that one of my slave bracelets were in. I was just so enamored by the beautiful forest imagery that all the pieces depict. The treasury is expired now, so may a few of them live on for you fae loving folk out there.

I Wish You

A Merry Gothmas Everybody1. Nevermore Womens Tee - binarywinter
2. SILK Book Imprint screenprinted necktie, Ex Libris - toybreaker
3. Tshirt - The Storm (men) - AkumuInk
4. Damask Skull-- Embroidered Scarf Silver / Black - MTcoffinzUnderground
Might I submit, some lovely Goth inspired gifts. They are inexpensive, original and not so offensive that Grandma couldn't even purchase them for the darkling in their life. Of course if you just want a little something for yourself after shopping for all the cheery people in your life, you just go right ahead.

Pilot, Pirate or Mechanic...Meh, Whichever
1. Cetacean Airship - tinplatestudios
2. Airship Absinthe Workshirt - sighcographics
3. Women's Babydoll Airship Pirate T-Shirt Brown - ettadiem
4. Zeppelin Airship Steampunk Art Print - galeriedeilluminata
I saw an article the other day about what steampunks were giving each other for gifts this holiday. It was full of familiar links to some outrageous stuff...mostly ungiftable really. I submit to you that these pages here on the Wunderkammer are full of the best steamy and goth gifts around. For instance these pieces of art and shirts, totally ready for gift giving. I will provide my address for mailing if anyone want to gift me...no? That's cool, you can gift yourselves if you'd prefer.

Look Inside

2. Mens Plaid Brown Twill British Coat feat. Ringen print - JamesAnthony
3. Courtesan's Jester Corset with Skeleton Cameo- LouiseBlack
4. Skeleton Shoes - FlipandFly
Artfully depicted bones. Who says you should only wear your skeleton on the inside. Sure they're not strictly anatomically correct or anything, but one can hardly argue the impact they can make on your wardrobe. Classy, tough, quirky and just a little morbid.

The Great Cephalopod Menace

2. A Victorian Octopus - industrialfairytale
3. Oceanography Steam Treasured, 3 Soap Bars - SteamBathFactory
4. Octopus Recycled Record Silhouette - RandomPrefect
There are those amongst you who fear these eight legged behemoths and those that adore them. Personally, they fascinate me in a, I'm glad you live in the water and not out here, sort of way. But why not get a few idols anyway just in case they do rise up against us and you need to prove your loyalty...it could happen.

Simple, Complex, Recycled, Re-Imagined
1. SteamPunk Communicator - urbandon
2. Steampunk Box - oldjunkyardboutique
3. Steampunk Morse Code Bracer - ProfMaelstromme
4. Recycled Radio TV Tubes Sculpture - lunaclaydesign
I won't lie, sometimes I wish I were a little more like these sort of makers. Sure, I make lace...that's cool, I guess, but some of these things, with their inventive and elaborate back stories, they're just...wow. So those you can't do, create blogs so they can show off those that do, right?

Not The Most Fashionable Sounding Word1. Cowl Neck Top - treehouse28
2. Grey Cowl Neck Pocket Tunic - emilyryan
3. Cowl Neck Dress - minorpoet
4. The Twiggy - JAlvo
But as a neckline, it's quite pleasant. Look, I wish that I could always dress as gothy as I feel, but I stay at home most days. So a nice, comfortable and dark covering is right up my alley. These pieces look like they would wear fabulously whether out on the town or cuddled on the couch. A touch of the dark and dangerous without all the pointy bits.

Subtle, Very Subtle

Or Maybe Not1. Turtle Race
Maybe it's just me, but at first glance, these seem like perfectly normal, classic painting. Beautiful, surreal...wait, are those the cat's teeth? Oh, yeah, these are great. Put this on the wall, fool the casual observer into thinking you're into classic art, then they get a little closer and discover who you really are. They are all really gorgeous pieces filled with fairy tale wonder and I'd love to hang a few on my wall.

Silver Lace

Yeah, I've Got A Thing For Things That Look Like Lace1. Vintage Delicate Lace Silver Cuff - WhiteFly
2. Cocktail Ring in Fine Silver - DaisyJaneDesigns
3. Sterling Silver Triangle Pendant - baronikadesigns
4. Accidental Tapestry - OriginalHardware
I've also got a thing for silver, so put the two together and I'm all over it. I swear one of these days I will have the money to have WhiteFly make tatted lace into silver for me, but until then I shall covet.

Poison And Fumes, So Repellent
1. Times Up - NoelNoirArt
2. Madame Talbot's Victorian Laudanum Poison Label Poster - VictorianLowbrow
3. Charm of Bone and Ash - OrpheusAlchemy
4. Hemlock Poison Bottle - doctormorose
And so enticing. I present artful representations of that which kills or revives passively. Poison or charm, it is dark and it is dangerous.
