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.

In Out Of The Way Places
1. Steampunk Professor Penguin - Print (8x10) - mirana
2. Steampunk Harem - 8 x 10 print - jessihasbeans
3. The Mechanic - TheBalderdashery
4. AutoPirum (mini print) - studiorayyan
There are those who would assign a strict definition to steampunk, allowing for little interpretation. I am however not one of them. I think one of the best things about this movement is its flexibility to go beyond the definitions and recreate itself at random. Sure, I still believe that there is a distinct feeling to the genre that must be respected, but then the only limitation is your imagination.
