Leather Wallet Holster!

All the models there are ladies, but I could totally see a guy wearing one of these and looking like a steampunk Han Solo. It's purselike, but not a purse; it's wallet-chainlike but less douchey; it looks like a holster hanging from a sam browne belt; and it's a bit more pickpocket-hostile than most other wallet carriers. I can't see a downside, other than price, but I'm too cheap to replace my beat-up old trifold wallet.


Goths Take Over Disney!

Everyone seems to get their own day at Disneyland. R ecently, the goth/rivethead/stagehand/steampunk crowd got to go to Disney and sweat like a stupid fuck because it's still pretty warm and sunny there. The event is called Bats Day, and the video was apparently from Bats Day 2012, last May, but it's just getting online now, in order to give you plenty of time to get your tickets, rent a clown suit, and prepare plenty of fake indignation that nobody told you it was goth day at the park.

Steampunk Pasties!

Organic Armor makes a variety of cosplay and costume armor, particularly steampunky adornment, but what if you're, say, travelling on an airline and can't afford to pack your entire suit of armor? Why, bring your brass steampunk pasties! It provides the best of both worlds: armor that allows the greatest range of motion, while protecting your most important assets - your nipples. Just be careful, though: while normal silk and tassels might cause a few minutes of eye irritation when a burlesque admirer gets too close, brass pasties are liable to put an eye out. Also, beware of men with powerful magnets.


Awesome Cards!

When I was in high school I carried around a deck of cards in my letterman jacket; we played bullshit before school, in study hall, after lunch, and my deck got the crap beat out of it so I had wrapped it in masking tape. If I had this awesome 'deckONE' deck of cards, people might have been more careful with my cards, and the '25% thicker' box probably would have stood up better. Even still, the deckONE looks more like a 'special occasion' deck of cards, for when Professor Moriarty, Captain Nemo, that Steamboy kid, and the Matrix stop by for canasta.

Steampunk UK Firemen!

Firemen in the UK have gotten awesome new enclosed helmets, which some compare to Empire Stormtroopers' helmets, but I think the metallic bronzeyness makes them look like steampunk robots. Anyhow, these are awesome, and cheap: under $300 each. Vacuform Stormtrooper armor will cost you about as much!
