circus-esque Harlequin outfit creation
When the Boffin first cast my eye about to discover more about steampunk that may lie outside my bunker blast door in Cornwall, it was a posting by Rob Clement on his 'abeautifulpalegreen' blog page that 1st nudged me in the right direction.
I promised myself then I would return to record his creative work in my laboratory blog notes.
abeautifulpalegreen is a relatively new business based in Saltash, Cornwall teetering close to the border with Devon, & the city of Plymouth. It is still in Cornwall where Rob Clement makes his bespoke clothing. His creative leanings reflect inspiration from & towards Circus swing, steampunk, and burlesque.

creations from abeautifulpalegreen
Now I've tried willing boffin buttons back onto my coats solely by mind control & not succeeded, whereas Rob is clearly multi skill levels well above being more than a little handy with a needle & thread. Like many skilled craft, trade & artists associated with the steampunk sub-culture genre, Rob has his own Etsy shop.
Handcrafting & individual skill being very much a feature of steampunk with many artisans & craft persons creating one off bespoke items, often as a result of personal Commissions. Rob of a 'beautifulpalegreen' also welcomes commissions.
He is also part of a small but beautifully formed collective of other creative persons referred to as the 'Rapscallions'. When creative people get together, encourage & nurture other creative people it is always a good thing.
