The SteamTeam 'Steamy Wonderland' Contest Entries

We occasionally have internal team contests, and now and again we open voting to the public. This is one of those times!
Our team contest themes are chosen by the winner of the previous contest. Our last contest was Seam & Steam, a combination of metal and cloth. MadArtJewelry was our last contest winner, with her Sweet Absinthe Oblivion Steampunk Necklace, so she decided on the theme for this one... to quote her idea-

Since there's a lot of interest in Alice in Wonderland just now, I think the next contest should be something like "Steampunk in Wonderland" or "Alice in Steampunkland". This should provide a contest that any maker can participate in since there would be no materials specified. Criteria could be based on how well the 2 are interwoven.
And that's just what we did! We gave our members 6 weeks to come up with something awesome combining the curiosity of Alice in Wonderland with the innovation of SteamPunk. We had 11 members enter finished items on time, and we're asking YOU the public to vote on our winner.
Because we like to share, the SteamTeam also decided to do a giveaway along with the voting for our current contest! For more information about the Giveaway, please scroll to the bottom of the post!Vote Now!

such wonderful entries! what a difficult coice it was, but I think, the caterpillar really spoke to me in a way that screamed alice the way it should be.

I loved the Cheshire Cat Belt Buckle (and so did someone else apparently, looks like it sold!) I think it has a good balance between steampunk and Alice and Wonderland NeoVictorianism.

I voted for the Cheshire Cat shirt because I love the design and the colour and I would wear it.

Neato :)
I voted for the belt buckle, because it is a very creative way to equally incorporate both steampunk and Alice in Wonderland.

Great giveaway! I hope I win, because I'd love to add to my steampunk costume ;D

I voted for the necklace by Professor Maelstromme. It's everything I want my steampunk to be, and the first piece that jumped out at me as something I wanted to buy.
