Steampunk in the NY times

Looks like Steampunk Fashion is getting a bit of notice...... just saw a big article in the NY times
fashion section.

Steampunk moves between two worlds



Interesting a bit of focus on some very stylish black guys, and up until now I had thought that Steampunk fashion had been very white orientated.

A big win for steampunk, not a bad article. Press for alt fashion often goes wrong, but I think the pics and write up are fairly sympathetic. Also lots of links to interesting sites, including some alt fash steampunky fashion sources.

Heloo!
Wow, what a great Blog. I am a freelance stylist but before i ventured into the world of fashion I studied sociology and political philosophy. In fact it is fringe and 'deviant' subcultures that influence my work... I find it fascinating how a subcultural uniform helps define an ideology, and vice versa.
Anyhoo check out my work
I recently styled one of the opening shows at Australian Fashion Week with a dark neo gothic edge. Think you'll like.

Thanks Bun bun girl, I will add your site, Cosplay fashion is really taking off and gives some interesting opportunites for talented new designers. Quite a movement going on there, that the general mass media hasn't picked up on.

Thanks Claire, very kind words.
Very interested in you using Dark style for Australian Fashion week.
I was following it when it was on, and noticed quite a few goth/dark inspired outfits... it was mentioned in at least on of the major newspapers.

I studied communication, so yes It is very interesting what the subcultural uniform says about its wearers.

Thanks for reading, will be posting a bit more regualarly now.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
