What is Steampunk?


Steampunk originally started as a sub-genre of science fiction, but it has gained such popularity that it is now considered a genre of it's own. In fact, some people treat it as more than a genre, they live it as a lifestyle.

Featuring 10th century steam powered machinery, Steampunk marries the harshness of mechanism with the soft, lusciousness of Victorian era apparel and decor. It is often set either in an alternative history or in a fantasy world which uses old fashion modes of power (like steam) to operate fantastical furturistic gadgets, weapons and machinery.
