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 Shadows
When everything is in silhouette you can only imagine if what you think you see is what is there.

In Finery
I'm back in the corset again, so I felt the need to look for new amazing corseted designs.

Pieces with real history and that golden ratio. Naturally awesome.

Herb Hoover
What more awesome than a miniature woos sculpture? Why putting it together yourself of course. Admit it, you totally want to make one.

Always nice to mix geeks a bit. Why, yes...I am a geek too. What of it?

Of Quality
Sometimes I think I give far too much attention to the women folk, so this is a tip of hat to the gentlemen.

Lamps And Guns, Oh My
Everything in this shop is creative, interesting and just plain fun to look at.

Just Awesome
Alright I'll fess up, I totally saw this shop on Haute Macabre. I would have run across it eventually though...one day because it's totally eye catching. Also, I think I need one of those long etched rings too.

In Disguise
This one is inspired by the art doll. Demons and masks, oh, my.

Cover Your Ankles
Personally I wear boots all winter, but a few pairs of these would definitely make me change my ways.

Post Apocalyptic
I just love the mix of steampunk and tribal post apocalyptic. I can just imagine the fictional world in which these weapon ready talismans would be worn on the outskirts of a much more refined steampunk world.

Dead Again

Dia De Los Muertos
Ran across one of these in a search a week ago and I just couldn't let it go, so I decided we needed more days for the dead around here.

Just Pocket Change
Completely affordable and wonderful pieces of steampunk art to make up for yesterday and it's rice tag.

Over The Top

One Step Beyond
Thought it would be nice to start the year with the most extravagant and expensive costume pieces I could find. See, after this everything else will seem reasonably priced, though maybe not as amazing.
