Steam Funk Cami

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.

    Love this review….Is the material “nice” or thinnish? (I heard someone say that it could be thin and “cheap”….) Not me!!!! – emjay

      Thanks Mary Jo. The faux leather of the dress is thin but quality. Anything thicker would not make for well-fitted or nicely flowing doll clothes–the thicker the fabric, the bulkier the outfit. I know this from experience, and this is very similar to the faux leathers I have used when designing and making my own doll clothes, and I love that fabric–just right for the tiny pieces and seams necessary in doll clothes. Hope that helps.

    Wonderful pics! This makes me want her even more than the Tonner pics did. Her color tones (skin, hair, eyes, clothes) are my very favorite. How perfect for Steampunk day!
