It's that time again! Time for my new favorite game: Is It Steampunk? For the newcomers, here are the rules. I'm going to post a picture of an item I've found online. This item must really be for sale and really be listed as a "Steampunk" product. Then, I leave it up to you, my readers, to decide whether this product really is "Stone Cold Steam," or if it's dried up like the "Sahara Desert." So, without further ado, I give you week two of Is It Steampunk?
boots are billed as "Steampunk Spats - Unique - Sexy, Rustic-Feminine by J Souza." These were created by Etsy User JoelmaSouza.
At first glance they appear to be a set of heels with clock parts sewn or glued to them. If those were your first thoughts, you'd be right! For $198, this might be a project you want to take on yourself rather than shelling out the dough. But one question remains: Is It Steampunk???
Please use the check-boxes below to vote. Click "Stone Cold Steam" if you believe it's Steampunk, or "Sahara Desert" if you think it's a Steampunk imitator. Next Friday I'll edit the post and put my take into it.
