The Steampunk Style Test
You are the Scientist, the embodiment of steampunk’s academic side. Where other technological styles might emphasize the gadgets of the genre, you realize there is more to science than doohickeys and gears. Your accessories are medical bags, test tubes, measuring instruments, and academic papers. You are more likely to carry a compass, quadrant, or ether-attuned spectrometer than a wrench or welding torch. You probably carry a timepiece, and your prolific reading gives you every right to wear spectacles. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of your style is that it combines the frock coats and bustle gowns of the 19th century with the trappings of Victorian science.
Finished planning my costume for this years events. I'll at least be attending one in the summer. I hope to attend the Steampunk Gala in San Diego, but that depends on if I have money. I'm basing it on this dress. It's overly ambitious but I'm finishing my costume from last year first as a back up plan and because I already ave the material.
