mostly because I don't like wearing corsets that much, and because now all the ones I've made myself don't fit since I've lost weight, which is a *good* thing even if it does cause more work, I've stuck my nose into "dieselpunk" or as I prefer it "dieselpulp", that "would have been could have been" version of the era roughly between 1920 and 1950 or so. I've also found a great old style two-fisted hero in Captain Spectre:http://www.captainspectre.com/ So read it, and support it by joing the Lightning Legion! I also found this forum too: http://www.dieselpunks.org/
For someone who is a fan of the pulp fiction of the time, Indiana Jones, WWII movies, gangsters, etc, I think this may be slightly better fit than steampunk, though that is always great fun too! And I get cool hair, red lipstick and punching Nazis!
