(from Steampunk motif of brass goggles)

- Late adopter of a scene who commonly gets credit for exemplying it through the use of a single, high-concept visual symbol, ie, brass goggles, anatomical corsets.
Characterized by simultaneous need to be identified with, and deep resentment of, the innovators of the trend they emulate. Self-image dependent on imaginary placement in percieved hierarchy of originality.
Often deliberately and defensively ignorant about true roots of their chosen aesthetic scene; more often just unaware.

Not to be confused with Babelfish Travelers.

Predessors include Drugstore Cowboy, Parking-Lot DeadHead and "Camp" Follower.
"Man, I haven't seen so many skeleton corsets since my sister's sorority went to the '07 Decembrist's show. Goggle-polishers for days.
