Blast from the Past: Steampunk

February 21, 2012

I have a fascination with Steampunk items. Maybe it was influence from anime or games but I don’t know when I started to take a liking.

What is Steampunk anyway?

In three short words: Victorian science fiction, where Victorian references to a time period and an aesthetic: the industrialized 19th century.

To me, it’s more than brass, gears and watchparts. I regard each piece as art. Take a look at some pieces that I like:

Steampunk Locket
Steampunk Barrette
Steampunk Harry Potter Time Turner Necklace
Cool Steampunk Goggles
Steampunk Pocketwatch
Steampunk Gun

There are also earrings, bracelets, masks, shoes, dresses – you name it! The dresses have corsets and can be confused with gothic clothing at times. I’m not aware of Steampunk music or literature though. Anyhow, no matter how ‘vintage’ Steampunk looks, it’s definitely beautiful 🙂


Thinking of a Steampunk-inspired cosplay.. lol
