UK retailer The Outnet is currently running a sale on over-the-top Charlotte Olympia shoe and bag designs. Even at over 50% off, everything is still super expensive—but that’s to be expected with handmade Italian Saturn shoes this outrageous and magnificent (they do ship internationally if you can’t resist the temptation). Check out more of our favorite designs below. [click to continue…]

The Steam-Powered Entropy Calibrator Watch isn’t actually steam-powered, but it is very Steampunky. It’s also made of English Pewter, which helps to explain the $310 price tag. Fortunately, you still have the Tesla Watch to fall back on at $70. Both options would look smashing with your Victorian outfit. [click to continue…]

Artist NoFlutter probably holds some sort of record for the most number of illustrations transformed into real-life cosplays. In honor of Star Wars Day, here are her new steampunk designs for Han and Leia. I’m sure that they will turn up at a convention near you sometime very soon. Oh wait.

This Top Hat Has Brains

Some mad genius invented a steampunk top hat with a second brain that I’m guessing you can use as secondary storage. That’s where I would put all of the non-vital information and useless facts that squeeze out all of the important things in my main brain.

Yeah, let’s zoom that info right to my tiny top hat brain. Might put an embarrassing memory or two in there just so I can forget about it whenever the hat is off.
