Steampunk Month Giveaway: $40 Gift Certificate to Retroscope Fashions

Laura over at Retroscope Fashions has generously donated our next gift: a $40 gift certificate to her store! Retroscope makes some of the most incredible goth and steampunk fashions around, from gorgeous dresses and skirts to striking menswear and jackets. They have parasols and hats to accessorize your wardrobe, too, so go check out her store and try not to drool on yourself.

Her two latest fashions are pictured here: the Gothic Victorian Long Stripe Bustle Skirt and Punk Aristocrat Strap Cotton Vest. They can probably be summarized in one word: WANT.

The Rules: To get this giveaway, all you need to do is comment (once—duplicates won’t count) on this post. The winners will be selected at random. You have until noon EST on Friday, October 30th, to comment here. Please check your e-mail on this day—you have 24 hours to respond before I select a new winner.

 


Torie Atkinson is twitching from all these beautiful things. The torment!

jefff
184. Maria BearMountainBooks
I wasn't going to enter anymore of these...but did you say Parasols??? I'm a big Amelia Peabody fan (author: Elizabeth Peters) and...I've been wanting a parasol forever. I don't know why, but it seems that I need one. Sure, it would be nice if it came with James Bond-like weapons, but...even just a nice lacy white cotton one for walking on a bright, sunny Texas day...
jefff

Wow, I would like that in my wardrobe!

Great clothes. I could spend WAY more than $40 there...
jefff
238. SretanMW
