On the third day of Steampunk Christmas,
My true love gave to me:
Three Spooky Eyeballs.
Cufflinks are fancy and rarely worn these days, so perfect as a steampunk accessory! Pair them with a matching tie clip or cravat pin and you’re all set for a evening at the Viscount Montague’s Aetheric Ball. The photo above shows some cufflinks made out of, it looks like, lightning dragon eyes. Unfortunately, they didn’t include a picture of the tie clip. You can find all kinds of steampunk cufflinks for sale on line–made with gears (of course), watch cases, tiny map swatches, propellers, airships, and scarab beetles.
Where to find a shirt with french cuffs that require cufflinks? You can find them retail (Macy’s has them), but frequent and judicious visits to your friendly neighborhood thrift shop also works (and you might find some other pieces of a steampunk outfit there too…)
