You may not be aware but there is a very strong steampunk community alive and thriving in SL. What is steampunk… I’m glad you asked, Wikipedia describes it best here and in case you were wondering, yes with a name like Steam Engineer, Steampunk rates as my main influence in SL.

Today’s look wasn’t hard to put together and I needed only 4 designers, the main drive was in fact the hair, it’s free on the marketplace until July 12 and when I found it I just had to do a steampunk theme. The photography was taken at Steampunk the sim, inside one of the steam aircraft on display there and edited as always in GIMP – it’s well worth a visit to this sim to have a look around and see just what builders can actually achieve inworld.

Today Steam is wearing:|
Elord hair – free until July 12 from A&A on the Marketplace
Tattoo layer hair base – free from Arcavim at the gift area at MADdesigns
Steampunk formal suit – free from BlackOpal Designs on the Marketplace
Alone boots – free from the Medieval Marketplace on White Tiger Help & Learning Island 
Poses – Menstuff hunt gift from Diesel Works

There is usually an annual hunt for the Steam Community, in 2010 it ran in September and included around 130 stores – if it runs again this year, I would highly recommend it – well worth the effort.

As always please do note the items featured were available at the time of writing at no cost or the cost indicated , but no warranty is given that they will continue to be so – that is totally at the discretion of the Store Owner/Designer.

Keep having fun and exploring. If you haven’t already, type “steampunk” into your search box and go see what you can see .
