OFFICIAL WINNER: David J Foxington
I received a package in the mail today that had me doing a little happy dance in circles 'round my kitchen. My steampunk harness has arrived! I'd been puttering around on the internet getting all sorts of ideas for steampunk "get-ups" and discovered I really liked the look of mixing up your outfit with some leather. Of course, you can get belts everywhere, what I really wanted was a leather harness, and not fake leather, the real deal. Something that would last through years of conferences and everyday wear.
Two years back, when I still lived in Victoria I came across Rad Juli Custom Leather. They had an awesome booth at the Steam Expo with genuine leather cuffs and messenger bags. I'd looked over the stand, drooled a little over the smell of real leather, cried a little that I was too cheap to buy any, and moved on. But later, when I was looking for a leather harness I couldn't really find one I thought was perfect, and it occurred to me that I could have it made.
So I ordered one from Rad Juli, who made it exactly to my specifications, and did an absolutely awesome job of it! I cannot even explain how much I love it! I'm so excited to wear it that I'm trying to dream up some kind of function I can go to in order to pair it up with all my other steampunk wear. Street fair? Wedding? Funeral...? Okay, maybe not.
Now that I've ranted about how much I love it, it's your turn. We had a contest a few weeks ago, and the crazy person that won the steampunk cuff that Rad Juli donated didn't claim the prize! So now is your chance to dress yourself in steampunk leather! This genuine leather cuff is top quality craftsmenship, looks great on a guy or girl and you can win it by just commenting below! Just tell me you want it (Gimmie!) and you're in the draw!
