Steampunk Pin-Up (Not Porn!)

The lovely Kato of Steampunk Couture has gone hardcore. For those who prefer to exercise their imaginations a bit more, Voila! Veronique Chevalier in Gearhearts Steampunk Glamour Revue- click here should do...

A recent kerfuffle unfolded on facebook's Steampunk Revolution group when a discussion was started by Steampunk R &D''s very own Austin Serkin on the subject of Kato's new foray into steampunk porn, which was, ahem, examined in detail. (Well, figuratively, not literally, since her website is fee-based & Monsieur S was not inclined to pay for the opportunity to get literal with Ms. K's newest online enterprise, Steamgirl).

As the subject of sex is wont to do, controversy was invoked, and despite the plethora of verbiage, no consensus was reached. However, I've no doubt that Kato's most devoted fans (and those who are less-imaginative) will be pleased to support her efforts.

For the more imaginative, (as well as admirers of "skinny chicks"), who prefer their damsels slightly more-attired for purposes of fantasy, the news is good indeed! Notorious steampunk chanteuse/comedian/MC-ess/authoress/personality/model, etc. Veronique Chevalier graces the cover, as well as being featured in a full-color pictorial AND an exclusive interview within the covers of Issue # 6 of Gearhearts Steampunk Glamour Revue.

The magazine, released by comic book publisher Antarctic Press, has a cover price of $4.99 & is available at comic retailers, or on the AC website, OR personalized/autographed copies may be ordered directly from The MAD-emoiselle One Herself by relaying a private message to her via her "Officious Facebook Fan(g) Page" here.

(So, Gearhearts is not free either, but it's much-less than the monthly fee that Kato's charging to subscribe to her Steamgirl site.)

And, finally, for those who are curious about the Kato-Does-Porn thread on Steampunk Revolution, check it out here.
