Making nerdy cool usually requires three things: 1) Self-confidence, 2) A healthy sense of irony, and 3) the football captain taking a bet and proving to everyone at prom that you're super hot! Giving you a fourth option, Old Junkyard Boutique.
The brainchild of a dude obsessed with steampunk -- a sci-fi sub-genre fixated on Victorianesque models of a steam-powered future -- OJB assembles old toys, used gears, pipe fittings, and other assorted bits & pieces into one-of-a-kind past-meets-future accessories that look like stuff Doc Brown would've tinkered with in the Old West when he got tired of tinkering with Mary Steenburgen...so never. Likely to net the most frequent use're a series 6oz flasks, including a bronze-colored number embellished with a series of interlocking gears and old-timey keys, and a gold-hued piece studded with Western steez like a cattle skull, an Indian head nickel, and a lone star, a dangerous choice, as you know he always comes with Barf. Proto-violence comes in the form of 30-plus toy guns like a fully functional six-dart nerf revolver with an iron finish and steam release valves; a scope'd pistol with a skull 'n crossbones holster; and a weathered gold joint that blares "Fire, Fire" when you pull the trigger, so it both looks like it's out of a movie and can get you quickly out of one.
For those looking to accessorize, there're loads of ornate pocket watches, and bug-like goggles with tiny magnifying lenses dangling in front of tinted lenses, though if these're the glasses the football captain has to remove to make you hot, you're totally going to prom with the foreign kid.
