    I'm not into steampunk, but think it's kinda cool. PBS did a special on it a couple years ago. Piqued my interest. I'd like to have some of the refurbished electronics. Reminds me of sci fi from the 60's & 70's; a la "20,000 Leagues under the Sea".

    I'm a ranch hand in Arkansas. Do you think I'd get shot wearing that? Does it come in denim?

    Steampunk is art, that combines the old-fashioned romanticism of the 19th century with technology of the 20th century. Think Jules Verne. The art is not limited to just items sitting on a table or hanging on a wall, but to musical instruments, electronics, clothing, furniture. Lots of metals. Last year after I saw the PBS special I was googling it and found a site where a steampunk artist was displaying and selling steampunked(rebuilt) computer keyboards for $5K to $12k. Beautiful work.
    I've attached a link to steampunk images, hope it works. If not just google steampunk images

    Well at least when you put it that way it does sound kinda cool to just let your hair down and goof off with it for a bit. But please no feed store visits in that get-up LOL, have fun................
