What is Steampunk ?

Steampunk is a sub-culture involving modern/futuristic technology set in an industrialized Victorian time frame, and using the powering technologies of that era, namely steam.

Huh ?!!?

Well, the uncomplicated definition of Steampunk is what happened when Goths discovered the color brown. No, really ! I think steampunk is a lot like Goth, in that it has its own fashion, music, fiction, games, cliques and clubs. It is the meshing of Victorian high fashion with gears, goggles, brass and wood. Picture the Nautilus from Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Futuristic technology presented with gorgeous Victorian style. It is ornate, intricate and filled with movement. It says that items can and should be beautiful as well as useful. That's Steampunk.

This genre is great for decorating your home, as well as a great style for clothing and costumes. I am slowly changing my den and laundry room into this motif and I get so many compliments! People always remark about how unique and different it is. Men especially seem to love it. I have brought together some of the best of steampunk, below, some of the items I have purchased myself and can recommend. Have a look, I know you will find something you will love.

    I think that I just may get involved with the Steampunk movement. The only thing is that I am not going to dress the part. I am going to work on some fiction and if I think it is any good, I'll publish. Thank you for your inspiration, Jade. This is not the first Steampunk lens I have been to, but it is the one that made up my mind to try this.
