I love steampunk style. I don’t wear browns or golds but love the style anyway. What, you don’t know what steampunk is? Well, I can actually help you there. Check out this blog, Epbot, which has all kinds of great geekery, but Jen also posts about some fabulous steampunk things as well. There’s pictures of home furnishings, statuary and jewellery here. And some weaponry, lighting fixtures and playing cards here.
You see, steampunk is a fantastical idea in which Victorian fashions and design and steam power incorporate some modern advancements, like this computer from the Boston Globe
or this one.
Anyway, now you have an idea of what steampunk is, you’ll be able to see that my most recent coffin is reminiscent of it.
It’s got gears, is made of old gold silk, with embroidered gears and flowers.
Lined in brown velvet.
What do you think? Steampunk enough? I debated adding some copper or gold tubing, but couldn’t think of what use they’d be on a coffin! This is available at my Etsy shop.
