Steam Punk and Free Clip Art of 1895 Halloween Costumes

 Today is a very different post.I have come across the term Steam Punk here and there but thought it only applied to collages and jewelry with bits of old watches and clocks. is much more than that!   It was time to look into Steam Punk on wikipedia. Wow! There is nothing subtle about Steam Punk. I can't say I like most of it but some of the fashions are beautiful and all of it is so creative.

           Simplicity even has a pattern out.
No wonder I see more corset stuff out there. The other day we even had a gentleman customer whose wife made custom corsets.
 Going into my Halloween file for a new  post I found the following images from a 1895 book. Perfect for making witches. They also look Steam Punky to me. What ever your interests are I hope you enjoy the images below.
Thank you Dawn, from the The Feathered Nest for mentioning my giveaway and store drawing. It really helps our cause.Now it is time to work on the buttons! Much love to you all, Louise

If only I still had the figure for it, lol, I could be very tempted to wear outfits like that. Well, perhaps I would need to knock of a few years as well.
