Yr Doin’ It Right #1 – Sunday Driver

Author: | Categories: Fashion, Music, Steampunk No comments
One of my most common rants about steampunk style involves long-winded kvetching about the forgotten Eastern influences on the genre. I'll spare you the snarky details, but it comes to this: I want to know why I practically never see steampunks tapping into the deliciously decadent culture of India.
