A while back I ordered a bunch of pearl gold parts for cheap from a Bricklink seller. I have been wanting to dive into the realm of steampunk again so it was the perfect opportunity to make use of the color.
Much of the inspiration for this comes from 16th and 17th century European medieval suits of armor.
P.S. Check out my little sisters photostream. She just added some new stuff so I'm shamelessly trying to get her some attention. :)
