Computer equipment done over in steampunk trappings. This site is a feast of fabulously anachronistic projects – laptops crafted to look like Victorian music boxes complete with little feet, an LCD housed inside a gothic cathedral, a bass amp built into an old Philco radio cabinet – right now the main focus is keyboards of velvet and brass and crystal, and there’s a mailing list for finding out when the latest dream machine goes up for sale.

Decor and adornment replicated from art and artifacts around the world: Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Hindu, Asian, African, Aztec, medieval, and a touch of abstract modern are scattered throughout pages of historically-inspired jewelry and housewares. Loads of statuary from Buddha to Beethoven, the games include mummy bridge decks, the gadgetry runs towards sundials and hourglasses, and Frank Lloyd wright pops up in the earrings. Thanks Neil!

Absolutely psychotic watches where the little LED lights do more than just circle prettily around on your wrist – they demand interpretation to tell you the time. Operating guides posted in the product descriptions walk you through the process, which is fairly easy once you get the hang of it, and also don’t miss the totally indoostrial bracelets. Thanks, TurquoiseRaven!

A SoCal shop full of haunted house decor, lots for sprucing up the residences of the morbidly inclined or shooting a b-movie. Edible blood by the gallon, latex intestines, classic Victorian floor candelabras, “toe pincher” coffins, apothecary jars, cemetery lawn signs and graveyard gates, foam weapons and the makeup to reflect their damage, the 9-piece Professional Mad Scientist assortment, lifecasting kits, zombie silhouettes, a whole page of vintage medical curios, and bulk discounts. Some of their stock is offered for rent, not to buy, so check first before placing an order.

Antique instrumentation for steampunk assemblage or elegant geekery. The compasses number nearly two hundred; telescopes, barometers, sextants, slide rules, 50’s calculators, anemometers, and other miscellaneous bits of usefulness abound, often with the cute little carrying cases that so sadly have disappeared from most modern gadgetry.
