I was at Party City looking over the Halloween stuff, and they have a steampunk hat.
It's adorned with some gears and plumbing, along with two "circuit boards" which look like a few transistor radio parts tied to a piece of cardboard along with some USB connectors, and painted gold.

Toward the back, there's a 7 pin tube with all the markings removed. It looks similar to a 6AQ5, but there are some holes in the plate, so it may be a video pentode.
I didn't buy it, but if I did, that tube would have the heater glowing!

Some company probably goes to hamfests and buys up the leftovers.

I'll buy that, but not the hat! (I'm a poet and I do know it!)
