steampunk-snitch

This gorgeous brass snitch necklace from Etsy seller Zelas combines two things I love: steampunk fashion and all things Harry Potter. The detailing on the snitch and wings is wonderful and hidden underneath is a real working watch. The chain is extra long so it will dangle around mid chest, or you can order it with a belt clip. Either way, this is a unique keepsake for wizards and muggles alike.

heart-necklace-steampunk

This elegant Steampunk heart pendant from June’s Night has such wonderful detail that I just want to keep gazing at it.

“All metal parts torch soldered together and accented with sparkling Swarovski rhinestones, pendant hangs on 18 inch stainless steel cable chain with lobster clasp.”

The watch parts don’t actually move (so if you hear a ticking sound you might be going mad), but this pendant is still gorgeous and unique. Check out more pics of the pendant, including a brass version, after the break.

steampunk cuffs

Etsy shop owner Heather Jordan Jewelry creates intricate designs by weaving tarnish-resistant bronze through amazonite beads and watch gears. They remind me of old copper pipes and are perfect to add some flare to a steampunk cosplay or everyday outfit. The comfortable cuffs will even lay gently on your ear since no piercing is required.

These ear cuffs come in a variety of shapes and vibrant colors. See more examples after the break.

yaya-han-etsy-steampunk-wings

Super cosplayer Yaya Han has an Etsy shop filled with awesome accessories for your convention wardrobe. The shop’s latest adorable accouterments “designed by Yaya and lovingly crafted” are these mechanical-looking steampunk wings.

Though the wings look like they are sharp steel-cut blades, they are actually made from lightweight, flexible foam to resist bumping (and slashing) people and walls. So they are perfect for crowed conventions and steampunk events. The layered 3 dimensional design is mirrored on both sides so the wings look amazing from any angle.

Check out all the wing finishes after the jump.

tardis noir

For those of you with a love for all things Doctor Who and Victorian/Steampunk, check out this beautiful Tardis Noir dress that features the original TARDIS console.

The dress consists of three pieces: Steel boned bodice, an underskirt, and a bustled overskirt/apron drape. It can be made in either cotton or satin and comes in either black and white (like the first seasons of the classic series) or the traditional TARDIS blue.

It’s made to order and fully custom sized to your measurements. Tracy Michelle also offers Renaissance style TARDIS and Dalek versions.

The capital of Japan has a quarterly steampunk festival called “Steam Garden”, and the first event of 2015 will be held in Harajuku next month. The event is organized by the Tokyo Inventors Society–a group of diehard steampunk enthusiasts–and the Steam Garden FAQ notes that the event’s entertainment, music and booths are all carefully curated, and feature everything from “rodeo girls at a ‘Wild Wild West’ fashion show to Katana-wielding samurai and live Japanese traditional music for ‘Meiji Steam.’”

Japanese steampunk is deeply influenced by the “Meiji period” (an era in Japanese history that covers the late 1800s up until the early 1900s–roughly the same time as the Victorian era), and the founders of the Tokyo Inventors Society note that Japanese steampunk features some unique variations from its Western counterparts. Luke, one of the founders, told Rocket News:

“Aesthetically, Steam Garden really pioneered what we sometimes call the ‘wild east’ style of Steampunk, a more intense version of the Wa-yo-setyuu style of fusing East and West, and this seems to be inspiring a lot of the younger steampunks now to be proud of Japanese steampunk style, rather than copying a Victorian or American look.”

steampunkheartbeat

Nico-Tech (NicoNico) is a site that’s popular with hobbyists, and one user named Frisk_P recently shared this sexy steampunk creation.

Frisk has a thing for fashion and steampunk, so he created a unique steampunk heart rate monitor that actually works! Basically, it’s a modern heart monitor that’s attached to a thigh garter. The monitor features a heart rate circuit board that reads blood flow via a photoelectric transistor (so yeah, it’s not steam-powered). Then Frisk added a few rivets and brass fixtures to give it a real Victorian vibe. You can check out a video of the monitor in action after the break.

Also, Frisk has some other unique fashion-y steampunk projects that he’s shared on Twitter in the past, and we posted some of those below as well.
