Steampunk attire and fashion




With the advent of Halloween, it seemed like an appropriate time to update the fashion and attire links, in case one wishes to either start or enhance their Steampunk appearance.   IO9 had a good introductory piece last week on Steampunk attire and ideas, if one has not gone about establisheing ideas on an overall theme.  To get a start, or new ideas, please turn to...

Yet another location which one can hunt down Steampunk gems is Buy Steampunk.  The location fits a key issue with acquiring items on Ebay - essentially establishing a feed for Steampunk items without having to hunt on Ebay for specific items.  I have found it quite convienent and I would be confident that it will certainly reduce the time one spends hunting online and spend more time on indulging in Steampunk.
