#AdamsOnGlee wearing #SteampunkGoggles & the #Gleeks are Excited
I am not going to admit that I am a Glee fan. Nope… because that would be disrespectful to all the hardcore fans out here, the true fangirls and fanboys (like my son Nathan and his partner Alex). But I can say I am a budding fangirl, apparently called baby Gleek. I love musicals, (yes Nathan you get it from mom, not just the gay gene) and I knew once I started watching this I would be hooked, big time. I have been watching it this season and have been going nuts because I wanted to see this next episode so bad… but it took a pause and I lost focus. They left us all hanging and ………..
Then, I got lost, and was engrossed in clients, steampunk goggles, zombie hunting, graphic design etc. etc… etc.. and BAM what shows up across my #GleeSeason5 column in my Hootesuite (hey, don’t judge me, I have a #TheWalkingDead too!). So yes, I am a #Gleek now, I can admit it!
So this Tweet pops up…
And I have to admit, Oh shit… Adam Lambert…….. on Glee, and he is wearing some kick-ass Steampunk Goggles! And I had just found this Amazing photoshoot on him a few months back, because he is quite gorgeous. So, you combine Glee, Adam Lambert and you get a baby Gleek excited! I love Adam, he reminds me of my childhood (ok and early adulthood too) crush on english glam star Adam Ant. He has a style that says “in your face”, and a presence that makes you melt …and..
Look at his face! It kind of says it all, and who is he in Glee???
Hello, I think my mild case of excitement was raised even higher when I found out the goggles sported around his neck were also from the same company who made the ones I am currently sporting constantly around my own neck these days was enough to let me squeal a tiny bit. I am a baby Gleek, I squealed!
And yes I am pretty dang excited, maybe not as much as Kurt was though!
I am going to disagree with here though Kurt… why not name the band..
Listen to the Lady Gaga song he sings and then check out what is coming up tonight!

Adam and Steampunk, not something new!
He is not new to Steampunk. The dedicated fan-art of him sporting goggles and other garb is everywhere. Mainly inspired because of his Glam tour. Adam got together with one of his favorite designers, Skin.Graft.Designs and had them create a fusion between future, past.. tribal and glam. Throw in a bit of Adam Ant, Ziggy Stardust (he does call himself Starchild in the show), a few boas and leather chaps and bam! We have Adam’s own version of Steampunk, the version many are claiming is going to take over Fashion Week 2014! It already is having a huge hit with designers everywhere, not just these Indie labels! Check out labelnetwork.com’s article on the line and the couture coming out of it.
My question though, if it is becoming mainstream, can it still be called Steampunk?
Or should we just call it …
Whatever it will become, Adam definitely does exactly what you are suppose to do! Creating his own, using new and old influences! Steampunk is about creation and experimentation!

Special Cabin Goddess get’s Steampunk’d
This is a sponsored post! I opened my mail up and saw that I had been invited to participate in Triberr’s campaign for SteamPunkGoggles.com. Considering my obsession since reading 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the fact I am obsessed just a wee bit (literature, Graphic novels, LARP, Cos-play, formal teas, webisodes, ideology… Cons.. ya obsession) I jumped in with both feet! You know me, if I have a box to play in I go for the gusto and never do anything halfway.
Some of the images used for my photo montage in photography & art are creative common licensed images from deviantART.com unless otherwise noted. The term Steampunk’d was adopted from our Pinterest Board for this campaign, L.A. Story’s, Stevie Wilson, I am stealing it because it is exactly how I feel this week, in a most epic way.
