Yeah but hedgehogs and Alice in Wonderland are maybe better than steam punk. I mean, come on.  No offense to the OP

Well hedgehogs are what the queen uses to play croquet in Alice, and croquet is from the right period to be steampunk, and the new Alice movie borrows heavily from both steampunk and lolita fashion, not to mention the fact that it's really all about drugs. Somehow this drivel makes a self-righteous point about my fandom being better than your fandom, but you are obviously too mainstream to understand my fandom anyway.

I'm so sorry to the OP! I didn't mean to offend you, I do like your project. It's really cute! Smiley I'm just having a bad day. The capitol of my state changed it's name to Google and since I work for the State Government I've been spending all day trying to explain that to people in addition to all my efforts here trying to explain steampunk to people who have obviously never read Jules Verne.

Oh my.. this post and responses are giving me goosebumps. Honestly. I can't stand the feel or sound or the very idea of ripping cotton.....it's like nails on a chalkboard!!!

I think it's the steampunkiest thing I've seen in a while! I love what a couple of gears and a battery can do!

Technically to be steampunk the gears would need to be powered by steam. Hence the name STEAMpunk, not batterypunk.

is it steam or punk--I am confused?

I respectfully disagree, I TOTALLY got steampunk just from looking at this! Although adding more things to it would definitely make it even awesomer! But if you add more things I will pay you even more for it.

Well, now that steampunk is mainstream (ugh) there are some newbies that think that you can do steampunk without these things, and that you can even add colors! (Bah I say.) So I can certainly understand where you've gotten these notions. However, I've spent a long time researching this topic and although I've never actually made or worn anything steampunk related, I do consider myself a scholarly expert on the subject. Perhaps you could call this steampunk "inspired" to avoid alienating those truly involved in the movement. After all, steampunk is a lifestyle, not a costume.

This is great for a first try!! Next time, to really get a genuine Steampunk aesthetic, you really need to add some clockwork parts, gears, and goggles. I'm not sure how you can work the goggles in, but nothing can be steampunk without them.

I am SO glad you like it all!! I was very nervous while picking things out.
Everything is actual vintage except the baby book, the stripes, and the happy faces. My mom is a magicians assistant and the sequin pieces actually came from costumes she used. The baby book I started while pregnant with my first daughter (who just turned 12) and obviously never finished. I used the plastic to make sleeves so I could just slip in actual pictures rather than using iron on stuff. I hope you find find uses for the randomness!!

I knew I had a lot of extra supplies, but this is ridiculous!! I'm trying to go through to find things my partner might like but I'm sure months later I'm going to find something and say "Man! I should have sent this!!"
