So, I have about two or three dollars left on my Amazon account, and I was wondering if anyone could suggest some steampunk items to buy? As the title suggests, this is more just for fun, but feel free to make suggestions! Thanks!

I thought this was going to be more about stuff like the cardboard hats covered in cardboard cogwheels, that my fellow Americans seem to think are okay. I suppose I wouldn't begrudge anyone a cardboard hat if they prefer it, it just seems tacky to me.

Maybe you should get some making supplies, that's around the right price range for some interesting craft parts. Also, the metal collapsible cups have a slightly steampunk feel, and some of the smaller ones fit that price range.

Wow. Those cups are cool. Maybe that'll go on my wishlist.  Cheesy

Check out the dollar store; imagine what all the cheap crap would look like if painted to look like antique materials.

I totally do that, I imagine there's some cheap plastic stuff on amazon that would be pretty cool modded as well. Maybe a bulk pack of cheapy squirt guns to make into rayguns would fit your budget, josecou.

Watch chain is always pretty cheap and it is surprising how useful it is.

If It Is Not too late, may I be so bold as to suggest something for the greater good:

snip------------------------------
American Red Cross: Nepal Earthquake Relief

A powerful magnitude-7.8 earthquake struck Nepal on April 25, near the city of Kathmandu. It caused widespread destruction across the region.

The American Red Cross and its humanitarian partners are working together to meet the needs of those impacted by this disaster. Your financial contribution will support their ongoing efforts to provide assistance.

If you do give to a relief fund online, make sure it's a source you trust, there are a lot of scumbags that set up 'relief funds' after disasters hoping to catch some of the cash for themselves (that link looks like it's to donate directly using Amazon as the middle man, so I assume it's good).

Thanks for making me think.  Just sent a small donation to help in Nepal.  I did it in the name of Brass Goggles.

Oh, the things that you could do if you had a few rolls of brass-colored duct tape.
