29 Times Gail Blogs Steampunk Fashion

I have many posts on steampunk over on my fashion blog. I thought perhaps you all might be interested in the collection. Some are mostly photographs from steampunk conventions, a few are DIY blogs, and my favorite focus specifically on the more Victorian side of the equation. These are all taken from my website's section on Steampunk: The Aesthetic.
