Steampunk and Historical Accuracy

Bwah ha ha ha ha.

There is a movement afoot among some members of the RL steampunk community to demand historical accuracy in costuming. I think I've made my opinion of that idea fairly clear above. You'll hear me comment approvingly on SL clothing designers who lean towards Victorian/Edwardian accurate shapes and details, but you'll nevver hear me complain about the ones that don't.

As one friend said, "I'm sorry, is my cog corset ruining your steam fantasy?"
