Fancy Dress Steampunk Revolver

These have been around for a while in the US; but have only recently appeared in the UK. They're quite small; but really come to life when given a decent paintjob. Steam-powered holdout pistol anyone?

Hope you like it.

Okay, that is the first mainstream massproduced steampunk role play item that I have seen. But that may be because I am living under a rock most of the time ...

I've considered creating a small line of steampunk accessories, but it seems counter to the genre's DIY and up-cycling aesthetic. It almost seems to me that mass producing steampunk products is not steampunk, since steampunk gear and such is very individualized.

Anyone have other thoughts on that?

I think Steampunk's getting a lot more mainstream, otherwise a commercial fancy dress company would not take the risk of producing a Steampunk range.
