If you do NOT want to see steamy steampunk corsets ...

.. then you should NOT read Miss Tehanu Marenwolf's "Cogs and Togs" steampunk fashion blog.

And particularly if you do not wish to see a photo of me wearing one of Miss Terry Lightfoot's delightfully naughty new corsets, you should not read Miss Tehanu Marenwolf's recent post thereon.

Gracious, you blog readers just can't control your curiosity, can you?

Explosion in the steampunk bloggery boiler!

How else to explain this: in addition to blogging here and putting my photos on Flickr, I just joined Zoe Connolly's SecondLife Bloggers ning and posted a piece about prim farming there?

Steampunk adventurer Roberto Viking

Miss Tehanu Marenwolf of Cogs and Togs invited me to model Miss Terry Lightfoot's amazing and rather naughty new steampunk corsets.

For modeling naughty outfits, a handsome gentleman is a very appropriate prop, we thought. Roberto Viking bravely agreed to join us. In a quiet moment, he took time to admire the ingenious chair-on-a-spring teleport mechanism that propels you to the second floor of Miss Lightfoot's Caledon Eyre store, To a T.

Cogito, ergo ... ?

Cogito is the name of my gently-steaming shoulder-dragon; despite tradition, he gives no sign of doing sums.

Other than that, let me introduce myself by quoting my biography in the Caledon (Second Life) wiki:

Miss Anna Darwinian lives in Caledon Eyre near the Odditorium and not far from the stables of Virrginia Tombola.

Her life before arriving at Caledon Oxbridge is veiled in mystery. Could there be a connection to the strange disappearance, long ago, of a disreputable flower-selling orphan named Anna Darwinian? Even to Miss Darwinian this is a mystery, as are her nightly dreams about brass-lined undersea laboratories, exotic dance costumes, and a very mysterious "Professor."

Caledon's Anna Darwinian recently, by shadowy methods never fully explained, became proprietor of a large empty store in Winterfell Anodyne. The strange and wonderful objects now therein include some of the oddest "big statement" work by Caledonian creators and are sold on commission. The name of her store (this week at least) is "Steampunk Adventures."'
