It’s high time for another fantastical flickr roundup, and I thought in honor of this week *wink wink* we’d have it steampunk themed! Yessir, Urban Threadsters do love their steampunk. Have a look and just what gear-filled goodies they’ve stitched up…
Everyone’s favorite professional convention vampire (off duty at the moment, unless vampires are going for the seampunk look too) Marty Gear! And let’s face it, with a name like Gear, was he born to dress any other way?
Beautiful stitching by Mrs. Beckinsale on this amazing hand embroidered steampunk purse. Truly lovely work.
You might have already seen this Octopus floating around on our webpage, since he’s such a fabulous example of stunning non-stitchy work! Yup, you can do steampunk without metal, or cogs or even embroidery. All you need is silk and a little talent, like vylettefairwell clearly has!
Steampunk is for all occasions! That’s right, even Paddy’s day isn’t safe from a little geartastic stitching when timewrinkler is around.
Oh Wickedstepmother1969, at it again with these fabulous steampunk gaiters. Who wants a pair of those, with their fabulous lace trim and real metal accents? *raises hand* I do! I do!
Finally, how could we not cover some of the many many versions of our lace top hat that have been done to perfection? This is one of my favorite steampunk examples from Storied Threads. The variegated thread and the tiny clock hands are just what it needed.
Of course, there are all kinds of non steampunk related goodies in the flickr pool, just click to have a look, or wait until next time to see who’s featured!
