Time Turner

After seeing this picture:

I really want one of these, though I fear it may be rather cheesy. I didn't have a clue where it was from when I saw it. Perhaps that is just a particularly fine photograph?
Certainly there is nothing Steampunk about Harry Potter but I like the time-travel aspect of this piece.

You can probably either make your own or find one on eBay cheaper. Its a nice little piece, not exactly steampunk... But go with what you feel like its all about astethics.

Re: Time Turner
It may not be steampunk on its own, but if combined with the right outfit and all, it will add more to the ensemble than subtract. As though it will chameleon into steampunk around more steampunk.

i've got a rather cheap plastic one that i've been planning to spice up with a better chain and some additional jewels. it seems like, at least from a time travel perspective, that it might be a cute (and cross-genre!) addition to a costume.

If it's from the Noble Catalogue, it's at least a decent piece. I have several pieces of jewelry from them, and I've only been dissappointed once.

Seconding this, except the disappointing piece was the Timeturner http://www.noblecollection.com/catalog/product.cfm?id=NN7017&catid=21 :( The metal that holds the glass in place broke after a few months. There's no way of repairing it without somehow soldering the hourglass back into place.

I have to say, if they made it in Sterling, I'd buy it, "steamy enough" or not. =D

They do!

Oh no, thats really lovely. Such a shame it's harry potter related. That just crushed my soul slightly!

That's rather how I felt too.

Oh, I don't know, Mad-Eye Moody always looked a little steampunk to me in the movie... A lot of the sets and magic devices were a lot more steampunk in the movies, actually. (The books always gave me a more colorful, acid-trip sort of feeling.)

I agree!

I have one of those from when I was in my HP phase. It's very pretty! Worth the money, imo.

Got one for Christmas for my daughter- it's a nice little piece, and I'd say it was worth it (Got it from Noble House).

i think it just steamy enough to be a costume i'd love one:3.

How is it any less steampunky than an astrolabe or any other piece of jewelry that incorporates outdated technology? Just because it's from Harry Potter?
I thought Dumbledore's office looked like a haven of steampunky gadgets and oldtimey treasures among the magical items.
I have one and I wear it all the time with neo-victorian outfits and receive nothing but compliments on it :)

I have one and I love it. I always get compliments on it even from people that have no idea what it is.

I disagree--at least if you consider the aesthetic they try to pull off in the (horrible) movies. The costumes are nice at least, even if they screw up the characters. Most of the adults who aren't professors wear really eclectic and semi-Victorian outfits. The fact that they have magic instead of electricity etc I guess is supposed to suggest that they never "modernized" which gives them the same sort of feel as steampunk. I think I'm thinking about this way too hard, lol.
