Okay, confession time: I really do love steampunk. Not for any good reason, it just tickles my aesthetic bone. A lot! Despite the fact that one of the best definitions I’ve ever seen is “when goths discovered brown” (Jess Nevins). What can I say? I want to replace all my light switches with teeny double-throw knife switches. (Fake ones, because knife switches were always a terrible idea.)
So you can imagine how this little dude from artist amoebabloke hit me.
|eeeeeeeeeee you are so cute

He’s quite small – from shots with tools in the background, I make him about 2″/5cm diameter. And, sadly, nonactuated. This distressed me until I found… this guy!
He’s not quite as pretty, but he’s actuated and he’s lovely.
Thank you, internet, for giving people a reason to do these things and a way to share them with us. This is as it should be. ♥ ♥ ♥
