The steampunk set has been delayed by our house move, but at last it is here:

An Adventurer
An Assassin
An Airman
An Adventuress

Maybe I am just being an ol' fuddy-duddy, but is not the young lady a little scantily clad for steampunk, a Victorian setting?
I know that the Victorian morés were more often than not contradictory, but outlandish, immodest clothing as she is wearing would be condemned on all sides.

Maybe, but my take on Steampunk was that it was a bit more outlandish than pure victorian, so i had the chance to use a few models that wouldn't work in a victorian setting!

I'd say being an Adventuress, she probably needs a little more flexibility and maneuverability when she's engaged in her business. No doubt, the short skirt includes secured extensions that can be 'dropped' at a moments notice to cover her embarrassment in polite company!

Well, her outfit would fit right in at a New Orleans bawdy house. But I think riding breeches would be be more practical/protective. Just the idea that a woman might be wearing pants (men's clothing) was almost enough to cause a scandal....lol But I suppose it depends how much attitude you want in your steampunk. Space 1889 would be more conservative I think... and some others would look like burlesque dancers with guns. Of course the guns should be a little more modern, revolvers and repeating rifles....
