The Steam Punk Movement Is Only Growing

Been to Etsy.com lately? Type in Steam Punk – I spent Saturday afternoon perusing the first 120 of 1200 pages of product. (And whomever gets the Airship lamp and the Absinthe necklace, I’m SO jealous).

The Steampunk Meetup at San Diego Comic-Con was so enormous, we couldn’t get in. Dave Dorman, who was looking for inspiration for his Steampunk graphic novel The Wasted Lands http://www.wastedlands.com had to go after the fact and take photos as people were exiting the meetup. The costumes at San Diego Comic-Con this year were exquisite, and the best they’ve ever been. So were the vendors. One of the best costumers for Steam Punk was Pendragon Costumes (http://www.PendragonCostumes.com). If you’re checking out gorgeous, well-made Steam Punk gear, check them out. If you’re looking for goggles and felt hats, be sure to check out BossBid.com (where lowest prices always come up FIRST) and look for the entries from Etsy.com – Comic-Con was weak in these products – goggles were $90 and not the quality of those on Etsy.com.

If you’re into Steam Punk aesthetic goodness, follow me on Twitter – I’m @writebrainmedia – I’m often posting mine and my The Devil’s Candy Store biz partner Charlie Athanas’ various discoveries from the Steam Punk world.

Thanks for reading!
