In preparation for the upcoming Steampunk World's Fair this weekend (see Geographical:North America), I've made an addition to my hat.  I've used foam paper, but the only thing that really looks like leather is leather.  Since I portray a naturalist, I felt that a test tube holder was in order. 



The clear resin in the test tubes ended up with bubbles, an error that actually looks better than perfectly clear resin.  The escapee is a very realistic fishing lure.  The shell is from the three volley salute from my father's funeral.  My dad was clever with his hands, so this is a bit of a tribute.

The microscope could go in a microscope holder attached to the scientific instrument belt that you will make in the future!

Or, perhaps, a bandolier?

That miniature microscope would make a great Christmas present - I'll have to start dropping hints!
