We can’t escape the loveliness of the beautiful people… however this isn’t just trolling, this is costume research! Honest.
Ok.. maybe not so much for me, for the first link, but the second, surely it counts!
The Guys of Steampunk MySpace photo album – a number of handsome men in their steampunk finest…
The Girls of Steampunk MySpace photo album – assuming that the majority of these photos are of individuals over the age of maturity I’m going to re-name this in my head (and below) the WOMEN of Steampunk, or even just the Gals of Steampunk.
Of course, since these are MySpace groups, it means the albums are a wild assortment of musicians looking for more publicity (Yes, I see you Abney Park), models, actors and designers looking for the same (Kato and Gem), and folks who take photos of themselves through bathroom mirrors. There are convention shots, professional studio shots, bar photos, and back-lawn photos as well. Apart from the eye-candy, I really do like looking at the photos of costumes, hair, accessories, props, etc. Two complaints – too many “sets” – I understand the desire to load up your 30 favorite photos from one shoot, but 2 will usually do (full length and close up). Also, the photos are not particularly easy to go through – the thumbnails are too small, and you can only scroll through an album at a time, rather than the whole collection. Still… pretty!
