Elayna wants a top hat and goggles for her birthday. I always wondered how she'd manage to rebel. Now I know. She's gone steampunk.
So. So far as goggles, these
seem good and not hideously expensive. As for a top hat... well. She should properly have a Gypsy Lady
hat like Tricky Pixie's, but those are custom and she won't get it on time. Recommendations for an inexpensive top hat that is not a piece of crap? EDIT: You know? I'll just give her a Gypsy Lady gift certificate so she can design her own. And a pair of sihaya09
Recommendations for other little things to throw in? Do you make anything steampunky? If so, do you do barter? Because I am on a budget, thanks to spending $500 on glasses for myself and Elayna.Link Soup
