Steampunk Shopping Day in Second Life!

Second Life provides for a platform for creative expression that cannot be compared or really described.  In addition to creative ability, in order to be successful in Second Life one must have a certain level of technical skill and ability.
Most store owner also design their own merchandise so in addition to their technical and creative skills they must also be able to manage a store or site in Second Life, or have a level of business acumen. If their store is themed they must also have knowledge of that the theme that they chose to promote in their store..Steampunk is one of those themes that is very popular in Second Life that also requires creativity and knowledge of the theme.
What I have included below is a photo essay of some of my favorite shops and sites in Second Life that sell Steampunk themed clothing and other things such as gadget and furniture that all have a Steampunk theme.
One of my favorite Second Life merchants is Black Opal.  Not only is their clothing beautiful and elegant it also seems to tell a story as you can see from the photos and videos on their site.
