I will be listing several pieces; they are not in chronological order of release however, as I don't have timestamps for these.
Classical Puppets: 'Steam Band'
HELLO GRAPE. I don't see a lot of purple in lolita, but Classical Puppets does seem to love it. While this does err a bit on the side of tacky (it's SCREAMINGPURPLEEE!! in all caps) I kind of adore it. They also have an overdress up for reservation:
And in my humble opinion with the overdress it goes from 'kinda tacky?...' to 'OMG I MUST HAVE IT'
Note: the shoes are from CP too!
JSK II (Google Translate says this is a 'miniskirt'... okaaay)
Next up is a slightly older release:
Fanplusfriend: 'Machine Birdcage'
Note: I am a sucker for sunset colors- hence, biased. Sorry.
It also comes in a nice deep green color:
And it has pieces for Ouji, too. I think the tailoring's pretty nice on these.
There is also another older release from F+F,
Mmhm stripes. Not quite sold on the pattern, though I do appreciate that they introduced a fresh color.
Matcha green! Lovely <3
Infanta: 'Steam Punk Time Machine'
This is a release from earlier in the year, I think (ahh, memory problems). While I think gold would have been a better choice for the screen printing, I really like the beige frill at the bottom. It's velveteen however =A= I can't wear it in the tropics. Might be nice and toasty for colder climates!
Lastly, here are some Steampunk coordinates from the Japanese blogger Crystaline. Featuring the ever-reliable
She wears a lot of layers and uses a lot of off/no-brand items, as well as items from Miho Matsuda, Ozz On/Ozz Angelo. I included a few of her pictures here because I personally love these items from Bodyline (I have the brown skirt!) and I think it would be fun to wear them in new ways.
What do you think of this season's Steampunk releases? If you know of any items that weren't mentioned, please share them in your comments!
