Feature: Steampunk Couture

So I was going to talk about my outfit a couple of days ago but the photo uploader hates me at the moment, so I'm going to talk about something else instead.

So this evening's blog post is a little tribute to Steampunk Couture. Kato, the lovely lady who owns the company has both a website and an etsy account from which she sells from. I discovered Steampunk couture quite a while ago, but obviously I wasn't paying proper attention, because although I ADORED their clothes and accessories immediately, I was a little strapped for cash at the time (and still am :P story of my life). Anyway, so my insatiable reaffirmation of my obsession with Steampunk Couture began at the beginning of this year when I came across this little beauty:




Talk about love at first sight, one glance at this baby and I had to have it. So I pretty much starved for a week to get it :P

I've only worn it out twice, but both times I've gotten so many comments about it both times! I really think it's the best accessory I own and was def. worth the price.

Speaking of price, I find that the prices generally on this site are quite reasonable com paired to a lot of other gothic clothing websites with similar quality. Plus, I find that their designs seem to be quite original. I mean have you seen any giant golden octopus facinators anywhere else? And furthermore, Kato seems quite open to design suggestions and custom orders from what I can gather.

So I think the next thing I'll get from there, when I money will be this broach
Or maybe one of their many styles of coats. Like this glorious little red riding hood number:

I have great images flooding my head about the pine forests out near lake Canobolas here, that coat and a picnic basket with a checkered tea towel cover.



Anyway that's about all I have to say for Steampunk Couture.

Signing off.
