I'm really not too sure where the platform boots part came from. But in fairness these things have been mentioned on this forum. I'm going to hazard a guess the place does get dipped into by researchers from time to time.

Still it's slightly pressuring to consider that when just shooting the breeze, any one of us could find our musings being published as gospel.  Cheesy

What the omelette is to the French cook, the pancake is to the English man. What's a little flour between friends? Smiley

I tried the petticoats and corsets thing and people looked at me strangely. And not your normal strangely I mean REALLY strangely. Also they tend to chaff up top and down below.

Not strictly Steampunk but definitely Victorian.

Yet another Metro article led me to this. Seems the Victorians went for a bit of the old 'dressing up' too. Smiley

Some dress up, some just horrifically scary. The one on the left in the pack of girls wearing white. It's a bit exorcist.

Indeed, I never knew that Rasputin the mad monk had been franchising out his "look". Apparently, so.

BBC News has an article today 'How to build a bigger, better corkscrew' http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22083752about 'mechanical sculptor' Rob Higgs. He doesn't call himself a steampunk, but they do: "The junkyard genius turning scrap into steampunk sculptures"

Good for him ! the featured pieces are excellent, I suspect like so many of us he benefitted from the postive influence of Wilf Lunn  8)in his formative years.

Resplendent indeed, it looks as though it could crack nuts for a thousand years or more.

There's a picture in today's Metro of a couple (a man and his 10yr old daughter) looking resplendant in their steampunk attire photographed at Whitby this past weekend. Of course The Metro labels them as 'Goths' because it was the WGW.... Roll Eyes

Yes, I saw that too. Firstly I thought: "My, they are looking splendid." then my right side brain engaged thinking...... "ah metro press with 2 steamy people at a Goth event.... I do hope no one takes this the wrong way". Then sense resurfaced: "It's a picture of 2 people, you take from it what you want too. Which has no bearing on what it IS; which is a photograph of 2 people BEING SPLENDID!"

Thought consummated,  I turned to Nemi and all was right with the world.
