Steam Funk Cami’s delivery was perfectly timed to coincide with International Steampunk Day, which falls annually on June 14! How appropo, considering this Cami’s vibe and fashion provide a unique, modern twist to the traditional Steampunk look. From the first look at her while still in the box, we can see her neo-Victorian/industrialist-influenced look:
Steam Funk Cami is a LE of 300 with a retail price of $169.99. Her lily skin tone is appropriate for the look and time period which inspired her fashion, since a porcelain-like complexion was highly sought and praised. This Cami comes with a brown center-part wig with youthful bangs, a look Cami has sported previously. Her inset acrylic eyes are the most remarkable shade of aqua (I know the Tonner site says her eyes are green), a true deep blue-green that drew me in immediately. And, yes, her eyes are perfectly set and even.
Steam Funk Cami’s outfit is the first such outfit for Cami: a mixture of vintage and modern that is just so right for Cami’s persona. The dress is a dark brown faux leather with long sleeves, high neck, asymmetrical skirt, and gold studs that mimic military-style buttons. Brown faux leather arm gauntlets add a touch of tough-girl attitude to the ensemble. If any boots in history were meant for walking, they are Steam Funk Cami’s dark brown faux suede thigh-high boots! WOW! These boots give sweet Cami a pseudo-superhero vibe!
An air of mystery is added by Cami’s eye patch, covering one lovely aqua eye.
Steam Funk Cami is a gorgeous doll with a fun and–well–funky ensemble, beautiful acrylic eyes, and a slight hint of mystery and toughness added in for a twist. She is still the same young, sweet Cami with whom I fell in love on January 31, 2010–but like people, Cami, too, should show the other facets of her personality and life with each release.
