As I was browsing Clockwork Couture the other night I came across a beautiful corset:

Clockwork Couture's price for this outfit, however, staggers me. It's $60 more than what I paid for mine. I understand that they have to make a profit and I probably directly ordered from the supplier, but really. It's a mass-produced piece- it doesn't cost that much per corset to make it. Sure, Clockwork Couture also has to pay for a website to advertise their goods, and the benefit of going to a website like theirs is so you don't have to search the web for hours looking for steampunk clothes- they've done the footwork for you and should be paid extra for it. But $84 for a corset that cost me $22 on eBay?! I consider that to be a rip-off.
I officially take back this post I wrote last July raving about Clockwork Couture's clothing being cheap. Now that this item has been outrageously priced I have doubts on their other merchandise being such good deals as well.
