The word Steampunk describes the world setting in which things that are adjective to it appear. In a post apocalyptic world, a gas mask might be necessary, as the air is probably unbreathably dirty. Clothes would be ripped and patched and mended and repaired numerous times, and since new stuff isn't being churned out of the factory, decoration would often come in the form of salvage. Since it's imperative to travel light and move often, as safety is not a common factor, one wouldn't have the luxury of being able to keep photo albums or scrap books; as such, were one of the inclination to carry a visual record of where they've been and what they've gone, tacking on a trinket here and there would be a natural recourse. Mixed in with fashion is utility; accessories such as elbow pads (and the gas mask, and goggles, etc.) are not only stylish, but also protect one while, say, salvaging through ruins or trying to fight or escape robbers, which may happen on a regular basis.
The point to the design is to appear like one is from such a harsh world; not that you drive a train or own a steam-powered refridgerator.

Oh God, not a LARPer! That's the worst insult you could possibly call me! O, how now I see the error of my ways, thanks to and only because of you applying to me a label belonging to a subculture that is easy to discriminate against because of their enjoyment in putting attention to detail into something they love! Oh God, why did I ever dare to not be normal?!

I'm visiting someone out of town at the moment. I have limited internet access- up to an hour- at the library in Toronto, but I don't go every day, so typically by the time I'm done checking up on all the stuff I'm keenly interested in, I don't have time for passing fancies like this place. Here, though, I've got lots of time to bother you buggers.

I actually liked the second and third photos.

Anyway, all I ask is that we at least try to keep the mess confined to the two threads it is already in.  Please?
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
