This week, I'm bringing you a flight of fairies. Little steampunk fairies, with tiny top hats, goggles and wings embellished with cogs and sprockets. if you're interested in Steampunk, please pay a visit to Steam Tea Travels, for a elegant Airship ride to Paris. bring your links to the Linky party.
The steampunk theme is very attractive to the fairy dollmaker. It dilutes some of the spun sugar and adds a brassy edge to the sparkle. There is such a large collection of steampunk fae on the internet I've limited my choice to polymer clay creations, with one or two exceptions.
This gorgeous creature is by Elvenelysium on Deviant Art. See the cute little bloomers, the de-constructed crinoline and wings made of brass tubing and watch gears? She is a 12" poseable doll and she is simply wonderful.
This is a steampunk fairy by Amanda Katheryn on Deviant Art. Polymer clay. I love the eyelash skirt trim and the watch.
This pensive creature in the top hat is called Jolie and she's by Nenufar-Blanco on DA. The quality of modelling on these figures is awe-inspiring. I love her pose.
This sweet creature is Solice and by a dollmaker I admire a lot, Roxanne 74 on DA. Her cute little boots and the silver mounts on make her Steampunk. And she's cute enough to be here anyway.
This is a close up (let me get this right) of Steampunk Princess Angel Face, from cdlitestudio She tips her top hat in greeting. I love the knitted cuffs and the devil-may-care attitude. I know she's not a fairy, but a steampunk princess angel is pretty close.
Time flies. The themes of time and flight are common in steampunk. Here we have them with the peacock feathers and top hat on Lu Lu a new doll by Wren's Fairy Realm. I love her slouchy pose; clearly she has all the time in the world.
This? This isn't a fairy. Does it matter? He's an ugly but cute steampunk doll by Bob Basset. and I'd post a link, but I can't find it.
The glorious Marina Bychkova touched upon steampunk themes and, although this isn't a fairy, the character of Frankenstein's Bride is clearly a suitable subject. Here, a curious headdress keeps Doctor Frankenstein's creation alive as she poses in her white lace dress.
And, finally, a Steampunk Cinderella coach. Why?
