I adore steampunk. I have a place for it in my heart. However, my post comes with this heavy disclaimer. I don’t know much about it–other than its style surrounds Victorian, industrial, and modern day twist. So forgive me, I may make a mistake. I may not know what I’m talking about….and by all means correct me–if I am wrong. I will not cry. I promise.
The reason I chose steampunk is because I really adored the clothes on pinterest. They are different and interesting. I’ve been inspired by those types of clothes for a very long time. It captures the eye. It’s not something you see in a big box store. So since I started second life, I wanted to do a steampunk inspired blog post.
Now, I even went so far as to Wikipedia it. I can hear you groaning–so correct me if I’m wrong. It said Jim Butcher (a fun author) has written steampunk genre novels. I was a big fan of the Dresden series. I also read the Time Machine a few times–and that’s considered steampunk. I can still remember my middle school days in class reading that book with some of my closest friends–even to this day–but I digress.
It’s time to talk about the clothes and where I got them. I bought the goggles at The Limited event. They’re from Tabou–spiked goggles. I like The Limited, because the items are well…limited. It’s nice to get something that not everyone will have. Then, I was lucky with a gacha at the epiphany and won the bollero, pasties, belt, and corset by FDD Stories. The hair is from Doe. It was from a previous round of N21, but sometimes you can find the gachas in their main store. The pose is from ZZANG. I believe there store inworld is no longer available, but they still sell their poses on the marketplace. So you too have a chance to wear this lovely outfit.
Good Luck with your gacha shopping and have fun–remember to bring a friend :).
Okay that’s all for not….well until I go on some more shopping/blogging adventures. I hope you too find that something special.
Cheers for now and happy shopping!!
