Yesterday I forgot to add photos of the merchandise I purchased at the Steampunk Empire Symposium. I apologize for the confusion- the past week has been hectic with family crisis and other such distractions.
The first item I purchased was a gift for Scott- a lighter shaped like a derringer, sold by Matt Winkelman of Artistic Intentions. Neither Scott nor I smoke, so I was deliberately trying to light up for my smoking friends whenever we went outside for their ciggy breaks just to get the proper use out of this item.
The second item are a pair of orange-colored lenses from Got-Steam? I really wanted the blue ones but felt that I looked a little too much like John Lennon rather than a steampunker with them on. I made the right choice:

These were all wonderful purchases, with the latter two being excellent additions to my collection of steampunk accessories.
