    • Did you not notice the goggles, leather, brass and Victorian style? Or were you just in the mood to have a chip on your shoulder?

      • I'm not entirely sure this could be classified as Steampunk either. Her outfit doesn't look like anything that would ever have been worn during the Victorian era. Having goggles, leather, and brass does not make something steampunk.

        Her outfit is very shmexy, yes. And in terms of a costume, it's very well done. But steampunk? I'm not quite sure it should be called that….

      • I noticed all of those things, but I also saw that they are mere fashion accessories, and not functional. Is that meter on her hair abnd there so she can look at it or is it there because it "looks good"? A cogwheel on the belt?

        I love the look of the outfit – but I also happen to think that Steampunk as a genre should be defined by more than just sticking mechanical stuff on your wardrobe. i.e. content. I mean, wear those stupid googles and put the cogwheels to some sort of actual use, then we're talking steampunk.

        Otherwise… I see the punk, but where's the steam?

  1. She's so perfect I thought for a moment it was a painting, or a wax figure. She's quite beautiful…and I do agree with the gentleman up there that said her eyes are mesmerizing. Very pretty indeed. And for all you people arguing about what steampunk is or isn't, can't you just enjoy something for its sheer beauty, instead of picking it apart?

      of course they can, but one cant post a picture of a lily and call it a rose without some criticism, ya know?

  2. As a femme steampunk engineer myself, I have to question the practicality of doing actual work with an exposed chest and abdomen like that. When I'm grinding or welding, little bits of metal and sparks typically fly all over the place. I'd prefer something more useful, like a leather apron or coverall..

    Oh wait, I forgot.. the point of this is the *shmexy-ness*. Nevermind.

  3. As a former Toy Soldier I can vouch that Sgt. Kato is definitely a steampunk icon, even though her outfits are more for optics, than practicality.
