3 items to complete your steampunk look

Picture this: it’s twilight in Gastown.  The corner of Water street and Cambie is empty. It’s so quiet you can hear a pin drop. Suddenly you hear the whirls of the steam clock and the familiar chime follows. You hear the sounds of footsteps and through the steam you see a corseted girl in impossibly tall boots and goggles running towards you.

“I have no time to explain,” she says, “ I’m from another dimension and the world is depending on you for survival.  Follow me!”

She grabs your hand and starts pulling you down the street when suddenly she turns and says “oops wrong person. You don’t look prepared for what I need.” Then she drops your hand and runs off.

Has this ever happened to you?

Here are 3 pieces you need to to complete your steampunk look and make sure it never happens again!

Goggles

Goggles are essential to looking the part of steampunk.  In a world powered by steam you will need to protect your eyes. Goggles are perfect for that. Additionally, you can wear them as a headband to keep your hair out of your face and they double as a stylish accessory if you wear them around you neck. The ones we sell are also UV 400 so you can use them as sunglasses. Bonus.

Pocket Belt

As a steampunk you have gadgets. We’re guessing lots of them. On top of that you have your phone, wallet and keys to worry about. Backpacks are great but when you’re jumping through dimensions or traveling in tim3 items to complete your steampunk look or fighting airship pirates, your bag probably isn’t your top priority and you might end up leaving it somewhere. Why not just carry all your things on you instead?  Available in a variety of styles and colours.

Pocket Watch(es) (available in shop only at this time)

Time travel and steampunk goes together like peanut butter and jelly. Therefor you will need at least one pocket watch to keep track of when you are. The more watches you have the more times you can keep track of. Guess what, you can keep them on your pocket belt!

Pair these items with a button down shirt and pants or a corset and skirt or even leggings and an oversized shirt and you are on your way to have a kick ass steampunk outfit.
