#211 Anything But Ordinary...Please!

Before Second Life, if someone had used the term "Steampunk" I would have looked at them like they had seven heads.
If you still dont know what steampunk is, then let me Wiki it down for you:
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery,[1] especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. Therefore, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British Victorian era or American "Wild West", in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has regained mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. Steampunk perhaps most recognizably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era's perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. Such technology may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or the modern authors Philip Pullman, Scott Westerfeld, Stephen Hunt and China Miéville. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of such technology as lighter-than-air airships, analog computers, or such digital mechanical computers as Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine.
Steampunk may also, though not necessarily, incorporate additional elements from the genres of fantasy, horror, historical fiction, alternate history, or other branches of speculative fiction, making it often a hybrid genre. The term steampunk's first known appearance was in 1987, though it now retroactively refers to many works of fiction created even as far back as the 1950s or 1960s.

How is that for Geekin' up your Saturday? 

So, yea.... Steampunk has been in SL for a while now. And Berta and Bubi, from Severed Garden, have brought it to you in the form of Agatha!

Isnt this Adorable????!!!
It comes with a monacle and a hat and boots and a key for your mouth! I only had one issue with the outfit. I have a mesh head and the collar that comes with the dress is just too small for my fat head. So we had to nix the collar. Oh well....

I had to go to the *Rust* by Cica Ghost sim to shoot because it is amazingly steampunk! Great place to take shots or just explore!

The hair i am wearing is from Clawtooth (please and thanks). It's one of my favorites and it seems to blend well with just about everything.
Lastly, I will leave you with the song in my head today.
