They have a store on Etsy if you feel like going shopping. These particular wings are selling for around $75, not bad!

Roberto Cerini is a fashion photographer based in Orange County, CA. Check out this magnificent steampunk photoshoot he did with some talented ladies and gentlemen in his area.
As a fan of steampunk, Roberto always wanted to do a steampupnk photoshoot. So, he put out a call on a steampunk forum, and history was made. His goal was simple: “To capture the characters and all the amazing details.”
Mission accomplished, Sir! These photos look absolutely incredible, and their amazing outfits are captured perfectly.
Be sure to click on these photos to view full size! You can view more of Roberto’s work on robertocerini.com.

Aureylian has a fun Youtube channel, full of geeky goodness involving gaming, crafting and all around nerdy pleasures. She takes a nice look at steampunk and teams up with the folks at Airship Vindus to learn more. It features fun interviews and lots of great costumes.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to watch season 1 of Steamworks and Shadows… I’m sure I’ll be posting more about this group in the future!
Here are some neat photos of a steampunk exhibit hosted by the North Kingstown Free Library in Rhode Island. Well, this is just the steamiest library ever.
Not only will they have this exhibit open through August, but they are showing steampunk movies all summer long. And there’s a Steampunk Festival scheduled for Aug. 23, 2014. “And remember that Steampunk attire is encouraged at all events.”
Sounds so great. Have fun!

Here’s an unusual video featuring Steampunk Morris, a steampunk group from the county of Kent, the Garden of England. The band creates their own music and performs village dances in the style and tradition of Border Morris, but with their own unique twist.
The video features their performance at Sonic Rock Solstice 2014, which ran from June 20-22, 2014 in Wales. Wonderful job!
Our dancing style, if not our general style, gives a nod in the direction of the Border Morris tradition, but with the addition of various enhancements and additions from other dance styles thrown in for your delectation, thus creating a uniquely different experience. The reality is we’re attempting to plunge Morris dancing kicking and screaming into the maelstrom of an unwritten alternative future.
On the musical side, we have a veritable profusion of blowers, bowers, squeezers, pluckers, strummers, and bangers who are influenced by rock, folk, classical, Spanish, and any other brouhaha that they think is strappingly good fun. The Ceilidh band ensconced within the side rattle off their self-penned and rather traditional tunes, whereas some other players in the side have some surprisingly spiffing takes on classic rock and even heavy metal tunes with which to ‘Steampunk it up’… oh yes indeed sir!!!
I’ll be on vacation for a while, my steampunk friends. But I’ll be back soon!
Hope everyone is having a great summer.
A gentleman by the name of ProstheticMedic has shared a photo of his prosthetic leg. He gave it a fancy steampunk makeover, and it’s a real work of art. It’s a fun way to educate others about prosthetics, and certainly makes him more approachable. Very creative!
Talented cosplayer Lindsay Elyse created this steampunk costume, inspired by the character Elsa from Frozen. Great use of leather, it goes surprisingly well with her gown. Lovely job, well done!

This stunning steampunk was spotted last fall at LosCon in Los Angeles. Photographer ebenbrooks captured her pose, but alas, did not catch her name.
I keep staring at the rivets in her face. What a fantastic outfit!
Here’s a look at amazing steampunk Han Solo and Chewbacca costumes. Perfect job, you guys look top notch.
The costumes are created by the steampunk wizards of Harrison Development, who specialize “in energy manipulation, storage, and extraction for your Aristocratic needs.”
So much detail went into these costumes. Han’s blaster alone was 100 hours of work. Truly mind blowing.
