steampunk



I have a serious love for steampunk!
Victoriania and edwardiana inspirations colliding with futuristic aspirations is what i would loosely describe it as! But I would google it if you want a more accurate description!

here I thought i share some wares I have stumbled across in a recent steampunky internet session so i could get my fix!

 Coming from a gaming family, I totally appreciate these dice! How wonderful if you're doing a perfectly suited role playing game! I can think of quite a few games these dice would be perfect for! Steampunk for me is the details...no matter how small...even if it is a dice!

And another hat! see a theme here? ;) This one really does take your breath away doesn't it? How wonderfully bizarre, quirky and mad!

I do love crafters interpretations of steampunk! the stuff you end up seeing is highly desirable, an odd-ball collections of goodies you find yourself lusting after!

What is your thoughts on steampunk?

Birdie Love as always!
