Sexy steampunk woman with an electric drill

Saw this image yesterday on this blog post about what women should and shouldn't wear in a steampunk context:

Attractive, sexy, and interesting, yes, but is anyone else bothered by the fact that she's using an electric drill from the 1950's? This is hardly in keeping with the Victoriana-inspired steampunk ethos, is it?

===== Feel free to comment on this or any other post.


  1. Seems like a photo of someone in costume getting ready to go to a Steampunk con. That would explain the drill.

    1. No, this is a carefully photographed poster from, a site specializing in eroticized steampunkery. The metal housing of the old drill is retro from a 2013 standpoint, but it's anachronistic with respect to Victoriana.

  2. This is hardly in keeping with the solar electric Victoriana-inspired steampunk ethos, is it?

  3. Yeah, but the cropped bomber jacket, the heavy metal hair, the tight pants... this isn't really steampunk per se. Although it is a great photo.
