Professor Flintbottom surprised everyone in the Diogenes Club when he joined the cast of Starlight Express at the Las Vegas Hilton.
I now have the theme song to Flash Gordon stuck in my head.
Aaah-aaaaaah! Gonna steampunk every one of us!
Ah, I see he’s also sporting the man eyeliner.
Guyliner. Very manly.
Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see.
sorry calling it a “man shirt” or “man liner” doesnt make it less gay.
look. frilly hem!
What? We’re not allowed to go there?
I gave you some luv, Kraken…
Hetero female here who LOVES the look of guyliner! If I were single & Adam Lambert is as bi as he says he is, I would do him in a second!(Unfortunately I married a guy who’s 0% flamer)
Maybe it’s because I went through puberty to a soundtrack of Alice Cooper, The Cure & so on.
Agreed. Combine this hunk of loveliness with a swinging ballsack and I’d be a lost woman.
Odd you say that – my first boyfriend looks almost exactly like this guy. Unfortunately he was 100% flamer. C’es la vie!
Also, are those frilly ends on the sleeves?
I don’t think it goes very well with the pants…
I think you’re right…. this is clearly much better suited to go with the underwear from the last post
A feather out his asscrack might unify the look.
I can’t help noticing how the stripes unify to pointing right as his crotch.
The pants are more “Safari”.
Here is the top that actually goes with the pants:
Thats almost steampunk, in a Moulon Rouge way
Hooray, they can rip up sweatpants and sweatshirts and stick them over other pants and shirts! Give them a big fat glittery cookie.
If he put the mesh shirt over this one, he’d be almost dressed. Cover up, for Pete’s sake! It’s still Winter!
It was easier to photograph him in the the zebra pants, since he already had them on.
The 1980′s called. They want their creepy ass shorts back.
No, the 80s called back and said we could keep the whole damn thing.
You keep using that word.
I do not think it means what you think it means.
Steampunk or entitled?
Because I certainly am entitled to feathers on both shoulders.
And I’m sure symmetry would make this shirt much more authentically Victorian, too.
kitty is entitled to nom on you when you wear her toys.
now someone just needs to photoshop this cat sinking its fangs into the shoulder of the guy wearing the shirt.
Correction- several cats. I would then buy the shirt for the entertainment value alone.
What ”various tissues” are used with the tulle and feathers on the shoulder? And how many crows died in the name of…whatever that is…
Not sure. But you are entitled to the plethora of steampunkiness. Get excited.
I’m sure they are vintage tissues. (Ick.)
Hmmmmm…if you click on the image, you find out this seller is from Italy.
‘Tessuti vari’ really means ‘various fabrics’, though I’m damned if I can tell what they are.
All I can say is, “No threat to Versace”.
Why are foreign shirts so…. foreign?
Looks like “Flashdance” and “La Cage Aux Folles” had a bastard child.
This look was de rigueur at gay dance clubs in the early ’80s.
don’t forget “The Princess Bride.” It’s gay Cary Elwes…in black, no less.
The best part is the cop ‘stache.
I think you’ll find that’s a hipster ironic porno mo in development.
True fact: Europeans and Hipsters are virtually indistinguishable.
I had to scroll back up. I had not even seen the cop-stache in my 5 minutes of staring at the picture. It IS the best part!
Those shoulder feathers remind me of little sad, limp, penises. With glitter.
This is actually from a little-known sub-genre of Steampunk: CIRCUS STEAMPUNK.
As in, I have no doubt this is exactly how the descendants of Siegfried and Roy dressed, circa 1897.
[insert tasteless "Tiger Blood" joke here]
I do like “…you are entitled to…”.
I’d like everything I buy to include that in the description.
“This Midol entitles you to a tub of Ben & Jerry’s.”
“This expensive Cab Sav entitles you to a night of bitching with girlfriends.”
*sobs* Oh how I have waited for the glorious day that I may be entitled to something .. anything .. even a tear of tulle. I can die happy now. And be buried in this shirt.
Ha. Kids these days think they are entitled to everything! Back in my day, Steampunk shirts didn’t come with feathers. We had to hunt down our own birds and pluck them.
And we didn’t use guns to shot’em either! We beat’em to death with Nerf bats (cause we didn’t wan’t to damage the feathers).
And we liked it that way!
Now get off my lawn!
Or modified Nerf guns, because that just intensifies the steampunkiness!
Pretty sure he just put “has” in a thesaurus search entry.
Model may NOT be the seller.
Because You’re Worth It.
I’m just impressed he got Jack Shears to model for him.
Er, Jake Shears.
I thought he kinda looks like Ryan Seacrest.
Is it always “Gay Tuesday” on Regresty?
You don’t have to be gay to use breast milk soap.
BUT IT DOESN’T HURT
“Great Scott, Caruthers! You look like one of those homo-spec-i-als! Harumph!”
brb, stapling dead birds to my mesh shirt.
does anyone else think his nipples are weird?
Whole chestal area best covered.
I think something awkward happened and his nipples aren’t talking about it (or to each other) ever again. That’s all.
Though they will admit that it involved a flirtation with nipple rings….
I think there’s too many of them. Or are those moles?
Come on, this Not Remotely Steampunk category is getting too easy.
You can tell he’s so sad that he’s wearing that monstrosity! Poor guy’s makeup is even running. :’(
I feel as though we have been Steampunk’d.
I’ve a strong urge to show up at a steampunk festival wearing the collection of “this is not steampunk” to see just how many people get the joke.
They have steampunk festivals? Am I that old?
Steamcon, for example..
Oh wow. “Chrononauts”. I am learning new words.
Damn. I AM that old. Guess I’ll be off to buy bifocals and Depends now….
They’re having one next month in the Boston area where I live. I was so psyched and was going to go, until I looked at pictures of the vendor booths from the previous years.
I’ve never seen so many purple wigs, rhinestone hand mirrors and animal print corsets in my life. It seems the local Steampunk Festival is entirely comprised of This Is Not Steampunk.
but but but GLAM is a THING why can’t they just call it what it is, GLAM, which is a real thing! Just ask David Bowie.
I was thinking Sting as Feyd-Rautha in Dune but in a totally spit your orange cranberry scone all over your monitor and turn gay way
I know! This actually pisses me off. I ADORE Glam…why not Embrace The Glam?
“Embrace the Glam.” That’s going to be my new mantra as I sit at home, listening to my “No Regrets” self-help soundtrack and gluing glitter on things.
Lord knows we have enough glitter to do it.
There seriously must be a market for glam. They are probably missing out on some real sales (i.e.: not those generated by giggly Regretsian thuggery).
[I say this being completely supportive of giggly Regretsian thuggery and sales generated by such. Honest.)
maybe Glam was not a fashionable enough word…. or like many young people… doesn’t know about anything that happened before their birth or before they turned five.
Really, why *should* we expect Avril Lavigne to be able to pronounce David Bowie’s name?
My first thought was definitely Bowie. Not clock gears and steam engines. Though David Bowie in steam punk attire might be delicious. But hell, David Bowie in anything (or nothing) is rather delicious.
He’s even gorgeous in a mug shot…
(who says nothing happens in Rochester NY?)
Dear GOD I want to lick that man clean.
If you wear this shirt, everyone is going to see your superfluous third nipple.
Just so you know, the ramen noodle bits I coughed onto the screen really enhance this look. Perhaps I should convo and make a suggestion?
Oh for fuck’s sake.
Velvet Goldmine is not a Steampunk film.
Lulz! I’ve recently fallen in love with Roxy Music(the early version) via youtube, and this TOTALLY looks like something Brian Eno would have worn.
Actually a little demure for Eno:
Now that’s what I call a man shirt with feathers.
And a bald mullet! How does he get away with it?
Secondly: A jacket like this was worn by one of the anarchist gangster type bad guys in Mad Max
and Mad Max seems a bit steampunk to me.
But STILL! The clothes weren’t the steampunk part of the movie; the vehicles, buildings & tools were the steampunk part.
I don’t believe all these sellers are confused at all actually. What does the etsy “404″ screen say? “blah blah try searching terms like feathers or steampunk blah blah” right? So a seller who wants to show up in lots of searches just uses those terms. (Same as people who sell $40 paintings, but one painting is $200,000- it’s a search engine game! They’ll be up first if you list it by highest to lowest) That sort of switcheroo reminds me of Rick Rolling… I dub it ” Steam Rolling “
There’s also a DVD set with a performance from Montreux of Remake/Remodel (which sounds like the Sex Pistols – in a really good way))which has Eno in a jacket of long hair.
But with a suitable photoshopped horned helmet we may be witness to the emergence of Viking Glam.
Of course this is steampunk. Everybody knows the Victorians used copious amounts of tulle and various tissues. However, there are no random watch parts so I will not be forking over 48 Euros- not at this exchange rate, no sir, no way.
Also, no rivets, copper tape or unexplained pipes, no top hat or goggles. What were they thinking?
Yes! That’s it. The feather’s need goggles and a top hat. I challenge some photoshop ranger to fix this atrocity.
Jethro Tulle, maybe
WTF does this Ziggy Stardust reject have to do with Steampunk!!!! Seriously dude, you’re doing it wrong:-/
I wish I could cry tulle.
Eric Draven hasn’t been coping well recently.
It makes me think of Battlestar Galactica, but with Mimes instead of Cylons:
“Is this the shape of things to come?”
That’s the sequence without words I want to see.
I wonder is there’s matching mesh manties. Because then I might buy it.
Oh yes, it would go nicely with a tulle Ballz Out.
Do you think this guy would get along with the sad hipster? They both look a little depressed and bitter at the world.
Someone should submit this dude to SadEtsyBoyFriends, yes.
I don’t know what you’re talking about. That garment is the steampunkiest steampunk item in the history of steampunk. All it is missing is an octopus on the cuff.
Oooh, great photoshop idea, “on the right shoulder you are entitled to an octopus”, too bad I have no time right now :\
On the other hand, this would make a fine costume for Anime Weekend Atlanta.
This whole look goes in so many directions at once I don’t know where to start.
By running for the hills is one sugestion.
And, I don’t think the pants are animal print but two layers of knitted synthetic with the outer layer slashed.
You are right on the synthetic slashed construction. Did you see the pic that combines the whole thing with a man bodice?
Discrimination! Are women not feather-loving, fabulous creatures of the night? Do we not also want “shoulder steampunk”? No? Alright, never mind.
Could also be filed under: “This is not a man.”
Perhaps, but that is one heck of a budding molest-ache.
hey some women have stashes too. abundance of the right harmones and all.. i knew a lady at the flea market that had to shave her beard every morning.. true story. she made neat crafts too.
Please tell me you didn’t accidently leave “out of her facial hair” off the end of that last sentence.
no i did not.. she was a nice lady actually… the only thing unfortunate was her hair was very dark.. and some times she ran late.. so no shave. awkward…
i also once knew a lady glass artists who had as flat a chest as that man. she liked ladies..and drugs. and black dudes.. and booze.. and very old men… .. she was “complicated” or maybe just confused. it was hard keeping up with all the changes she made while she was selling her wares in my store front… she eventually got some little boobs when she stopped doing drugs and made a pretty girl.
Artists can be interesting sometimes. I can’t decide if we’re artists because we’re different or if we’re different because we’re artists.
Are we not men? WE ARE STEAMPUNK!
Rev., thank you for putting a Devo song into my head. I always forget about them and am then happy to remember again.
Dang, you whipped it good.
This square’s having a ball.
(The “square” in question is me, btw. I didn’t mean to call anyone else a square! Plus it’s another Devo reference. See? I really am square.)
Steampunk or not, I’m sure Johnny Weir wants his shirt back.
The makeup, however, can stay.
I didn’t know Heatherette was on Etsy!
Is it weird I instantly thought of that hideous shirt Aria wore on the PLL finale last night? ^_^;;; with what looked like ROADKILL on her shoulders? Anyone? Yeah?
It’s not steampunk, it’s not a shirt, hell, it’s not even fashionably gay. That’s how much this seller fails.
He looks more like someone who would figure skate to a mash up of ‘send in the clowns’ and ‘welcome to the jungle’.
Half zebra/half mime.
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.
Don’t bother they’re queer.
Isn’t it rich?
Isn’t it queer?
Great way to show your headlights when it gets cold outside.
That shirt looks like a woodpecker committed suicide by slamming itself in a screen door.
Sad Hipsters are Sad… Together.
It’s a Sad-Off.
Who would judge that?
Adam Lambert and The guy from The Cure?
You know, that guy with like the hair? Damn. I cant even blame that one on alcohol because i am sober. Robert Smith.
I say that guy with the hair all the time when I can’t think of someone’s name.
Or the nose. Or the face.
So, I thought you were cool because of your sad off comment. Then I went to your store. Now I think you are Awesome!! I may or may not have a crafty crush on you
Ooh! His shop makes me wish I had money so I could get me some shiny happy people.
OMG, Revonav…only four hours away…would you trade metal smithing lessons for sexual favors, child labor, or bags of cat hair?
I’m ogling the cufflinks. I want I want I want.
First, I need a new job. Then the wanting can turn into buying.
Revonav, you are very cool indeed! Love your jewelry!
OMG, I’m dying here!
This picture is so full of WIN.
Feather Dude looks like Brigitte Nielson.
This looks like something you’d wear to a gothic gay bar…it’s a small demographic
Come to Atlanta – I’m sure we have one.
Sad Hipster at a Scissor Sisters show.
mmmm – more like “Black Swan”, or should I say “Black Cob”.
Thinks any man caught in this ‘manshirt’ will be entitled to tears of pain after the beat down he is sure to receive.
Really? No Road Warrior jokes yet?
Sad hipster’s just here for the gasoline.
God! I didn’t know International Male was still in business! How I always wanted their poet’s shirt with puffy sleeves!
I actually bought that! The sleeves were made stupidly short and I didn’t think to try returning my M for an XXL, or at least just plain returning it, so I just wore it & looked uber lame til the day I turned it into dust rags.
Why is the seller raiding Liza Minnelli’s closet? I’m sure both the shirt and the model had to come from there….
I don’t know. He looks like he came out of the closet awhile ago. You don’t go from hiding straight into a shirt like that lightly.
This is John Connor’s father from Terminator after going back in time just a little too far…
Entitled to wear ta tear of tulle?
Obviously the model is not entitled to have any dignity.
This is steampunk, the same way Cats is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LI1DMZ6J_RM But with more jazz hands.
Maybe if you tilt your head to the side, and squint it could be for a steampunk prostitute.
Needs more mascara:
“You are entitled…” Galliano, is that you?
It may not be steampunk but, I think it may qualify as steamjunk.
I was thinking it might be Steampink.
Maybe SteamDrunk, which would at least explain the runny mascara.
I hope he got paid well.
ugh, everybody’s always going around feeling so entitled to have tulle these days. kids.
I’m pretty sure it just got added to the Constitution. Life, Liberty, and Tulle.
They took out happiness because it was offending the emos.
You just made my day.
I’m full of clever things today, probably because I have no alcohol. It’s a sad thing.
No alcohol is sad, maybe thats why the hipsters are sad? But you have made me very happy.(don’t tell the emos)
We’ll get this shirt and fake mustaches and they will never find us!
It’s not Starlight Express…
I know I won’t buy a piece of clothing unless there are “various tissues” on it. But of course, I live in Silent Hill.
Isn’t this kinda like what Tina Turner wore in Beyond Thunderdome?
Wait, that was made of chainmaille. Way better and sadly a little more manly.
But Tina Turner would make it all look bad ass.
(Also, I had to find hosting for gifs because my photobucket bandwidth borked because of Regretsy. WIN!)
Fuck yeah! Supernatural is the shit. Shake that ass Dean!
Yeah I’m a fangirl!
Me too. Love me some Dean.
I feel strongly that if you need to include the word “Man” in the description of a garment in order for people to know it’s a man’s garment… it’s not a man’s garment.
Straight from the red carpet.
2 comments before my drugs really kick in and I forget how to operate electronics: 1) creepy flesh toned beard; 2) way to steal your nd makeup tips and your shoulder accessories from The Crow. I’m sure late Brandon Lee is so happy you’re a fan.
Okay time for sleep
Half the fun in waiting for your drugs to kick in IS posting. That’s what I’m doing!
I think this one calls for a
WHO WEARS IT BETTER? installment.
or Who’s ENTITLED to Wear It Better??
I’d do him.
A tear of tulle? Is it a big sparkly tear?
Even though I’m not into guyliner, that is one good-looking gay man.
What? I can *look*, can’t I?
It’s blades of fucking glory BITCHES!
I have just read your comment. It is 7am. I made some odd squeak/gasp and started laughing so hard i couldn’t breathe and started crying.
The kid comes out of his room and says Mom whats wrong?
Not being able to explain, i just say nothing I am fine go back to bed.
He goes mom you are not working with a full deck.
Then i started the laugh/cry all over again.
Is it finally happening?
Are people putting “steampunk” in their descriptions just to get the hits from being on regretsy.com?
You know what they say: no such thing as bad publicity.
Jareth called. He wants his shirt and guyliner back.
Can we have another category? Maybe “Not Remotely Attractive” or “Not Remotely Clothing?”
This is the only post where I still can’t find the item in question “steampunk” after a few stiff drinks.
Maybe CyberPunk….. No. Not even that.
OFF TOPIC: How do I get a password for the “whimsical” post?
I must be slow or not cool enough because I have no idea what to do with the members only posts .
I’m going to a Steampunk convention this weekend. The temptation to tag anything like these items with a “NOT STEAMPUNK” sticker is overwhelming.
Time Out. Steam Punk Convention??? Oh dear.
Get us some pictures for the club
Somehow I don’t think of Adam Lambert’s costumes as steampunk.
So… this is what Kyle Reese was doing before saving Sarah Connor?
As a former uber-goth chick and longtime appreciator of men in eyeliner, all I can say is UR DOIN IT WRONG.
Just be glad it wasn’t Mycroft Holmes who came sauntering out in this abomination.
I kinda like it. I wonder how much extra they’d charge to throw in the model? I loves me some guyliner
I can’t believe I created a Regretsy account just to point out how much this looks like a photoshopped Misha Collins.
Mine is a sad little world.
Don’t be sad.
That got my boiler firing
