For about $350, you can be the proud owner of this stunning corset (find it here). Head over to Etsy shop MirirArtSteampunk to find this lovely piece and more. The artist creates unique steampunk items, as low as $23 (the corset is the priciest item in the shop). All items are handmade in Italy, so Christmas delivery is highly doubtful this year, but reviewers suggest her items are worth the wait.
I don’t watch HBO’s Game of Thrones. Yes, I know it’s “really great” and “epic” and “one of the best shows to ever grace television screens” or whatever. But the series also features a particular brand of ultra-violence to which I prefer not to expose myself. So I don’t watch the show. I do, however, binge-watch clips on YouTube of scenes that feature the character, Daenerys Targaryen. Why?! Because she’s the frakking Mother of Dragons! That’s why! And because dragons are AMAZING!
