Steampunk Softies
8 Scientifically Minded Dolls from a Past that Never Was
Offers a charmingly raffish cast of characters, ranging from the sinister Doctor to the adventurous Aviatrix. All share key steampunk characteristics – they’re firmly rooted in a past that never quite existed, and they have the accessories and accoutrements that make the steampunk genre such a delight for enthusiasts. Despite meticulous detailings, all the Softies are simple enough for even a sewing novice to make, with clear step-by-step instructions for every character. And many have dual roles to add a little practicality to their punk existence – the Lady makes an excellent paperweight, for example, while the Illusionist’s cloak doubles as a screen cleaner.
