Submissions Are Open ~ Accepting in a Wide Range of Genres ~ Focusing on Steam/Diesel/and Cyber Punk for January

Hello fans! So glad you stopped by today. We will be hosting a mini series in January on Tuesdays and Fridays, now thru January 23, featuring open submissions, and select items that will be for sale at the upcoming Steampunk and Industrial Event coming up Jan 24-25 at Renniger's Market located in Mount Dora, Florida. 

All steampunk items that you will find at the event are handcrafted originals - are unique - and have been created from the magical minds of our CEO Janet Beasley and her hubby. So get ready to feast your eyes upon some amazing cos-play items and creations from this highly imaginative duo. 

Front View

Today's featured item that will be for sale at the event is a true vintage, black velvet hat decorated with gears, and other hardware. An ostrich feather caps off the wispy bow that boasts a gold vintage peacock pin. The true vintage hats come from the 40's, 50's, and 60's eras. Nearly every item on these stunning, true vintage hats is hand-sewn on for durability.
