I hope they don't qualify for BOTM! How am i suppose to compete with that?

steampunk is a style. it can include electronic devices, fashion, furniture, and just about anything else that gives it an old west technology look to it. i think all the ones listed here are fairly new and none are actually steam engines.

5th one from the top certainly looks steam powered, or just my imagination of what a small steam engine might look like.
