There has been so much geeky news the past week I have fought to get Second Geekhood up in time to cover at least some of it in a timely manner. Unfortunately, this local sad news comes at a mere three days old for Clockwork Couture, the local steampunk clothier located in Burbank, CA.
There is some confusing info in the flurry of posts on their Facebook page, but what is clear is that they are closing their doors by at least the end of this month. Few things are worse than hearing your favorite store closing except a death in the “family” of fandom – be it a friend or a well-known and beloved icon one grew up with.
If you want to help, there is a gofundme campaign going on right now to help keep them afloat. It was originally to help pay the rent to the end of May, but an update 14 hours ago said they have enough for May and the goal now is to keep it going through June. We will keep you posted as we get more news in the next few days/weeks.
