Steampunk inspiration and resources

Where to Find “Steam Era” Military Uniform Images…

You may remember that during the month of February FWtGT celebrated all types of makers, and I gave you some digital resources like the New York Public Library. I have a great example today of a way to use digital collections like that one. Military cosplay is common in the world of Steampunk, which makes perfect sense given all the airship captains and officers fighting in India during the 1800’s. So if you are looking for some reference material, look no farther than the NYPL! I included just a sampling below, but there must be at least two dozen lithographs of uniforms from all over the world in the 1890’s. Enjoy!

Have you found any great stuff using the resources I recommended? Tell me about it in the comments!
