Rotating Nautilus Neckalce
Made me think of these shoes...
Steampunk shoes on Amazon $30-$60
Jitterbug shoulder rider
Key nail art
Octopus top hats
Crank spinning parasol
Big rose hat
For some reason this particular convention, perhaps because of the Steampunk in Space theme, made me think of deco. I wouldn't say there is a natural link between the two but I do wear some of my deco stuff with steampunk outfits and it seems to go well.
Gold deco brooch and earring set
Deco hair clip
Deco Necklace Christie’s Deco (similar faux diamond $50)
Deco Van Cleef & Arpels, 1926 Bonham’s
I don't know what it is about that piece but I just love it.
And I also spotted this little jobby in the fashion blogs recently. It's not steampunk, but it's very inspiring to DIY. It could be fun to salvage and old leather camera or map case and decorate it in a similar manner.
