What is Steampunk?

Steampunk is the creative blending of the Victorian era and the Steam Age, often accurately described as Victorian meets Science Fiction.

Steampunk embodies a whimsical, inventive and adventurous spirit and is often set in an alternative universe, usually 19th century Britain or America’s “Wild West."

Influences include Jules Verne, Sherlock Holmes, Robert Fulton (the inventor of the steam engine), James T. West and Artemis Gordon (the latter two played by Robert Conrad & Ross Martin, respectively, in the late 1960s T.V. series “The Wild Wild West.”)

Steampunk is more than a fashion style (although that is a good place to start). It is also a lifestyle, a creative celebration of art and machinery with a pride in craftsmanship and attention to detail generally not seen since the early 1900s.
