Fashion set makers, please notice: Fashion sets are allowed here, but only sets which are really creative, artistic and a bit strange...for example steampunk, cyberpunk, dystopian, subculture...everything that is weird and not the fashion we see every day on the streets. Sorry but i delete every fashion set that is too "everyday". You have your own groups for that, ne? :-)
 
Cabinets of curiosities in history:
Cabinets of curiosities (also known as Wunderkammer, Cabinets of Wonder, or wonder-rooms) were encyclopedic collections of types of objects whose categorical boundaries were, in Renaissance Europe, yet to be defined. Modern science would categorize the objects included as belonging to natural history (sometimes faked), geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art (including cabinet paintings) and antiquities.
