The Crossroads of the Aether
I'm fairly new to steampunk. For the few years I usually sit in the background and cheer on my friends while they have fun with their steampunk endeavors. However, one thing I've have notice there is an absence of color. When I have asked people in my local community about it, I've been told that it is an absolute no-no. Repeatedly I have been told it's solid earth tones with the occasional reds/burgandy is ok. It just seems odd to me for a person that is a fan of Victorian era clothing that I must give prints and vivid color. Is really wrong to infuse color into steam fashion?
Regardless I will go forward and be an individual and go for color because it is appropriate for my alter ego.
Damn straight! :-)
