Steampunk fashion lives!

Steampunk fashion is the fusion of neo-futurism and Victorian age costume. It’s a fascinating fashion statement that has come to spotlight in the recent years. What makes it very exciting is that it comes with no limits and definitely no strict rules.

You can wear a Victorian costume, accessories, and couple it with trampoline jumping shoes – and you’re good to go! Every steam punk fan is free to mix and match steampunk costumes, accessories, and even footwear.

If you’re fascinated with the steampunk revolution and want to try this bizarre fashion trend, be sure to read this six essential steampunk fashion tips!

  1. Steampunk fashion is simply turning steampunk literature into real-world. Any clothing you find in steampunk literature is perfect!
  2. You’ll never go wrong with Victorian attire. Being the first people to utilize the steam technology as a part of their daily life, it’s not surprising to find steampunk literature being set during their era. The whole of the steampunk literature is strongly inspired by the Victorian world. So, if you’re trying to look steampunkish, go Victorian!
  3. Steampunk fashion is all about providing entertainment to its wearer, delight to its viewer, and fascination to the senses. If your steampunk get it up is living up to these characters, then you’re wearing the right costumes. Don’t be afraid about your outfit just because you think you’re not being “too steampunk.”

Don’t think that there are strict accessories and fashion collections (like goggles) that can create that punkish status look, if these accessories don’t fit your look, you can dump them. In the same way, if you think an accessory can glam up your look, wear it. There isn’t anything wrong wearing a pair of trampoline jumping shoes to complete your attire. Take a look at how these boots look like at this site.

  1. You’re free to choose colors. A lot of people equate steampunk fashion with the dark colors like black, brown, and gray. But the truth is that steampunk can be of any color. You can even wear flashy neon colors and still be punkish! Every color can be relevant to steampunk since the fashion embodies an advanced technology with complicated machine-made patterns and vibrant colors.
  2. If you’re someone who likes to mix and match different fashion styles, steampunk fashion can fit well with these genres. Think of Pulp Adventure, Medieval, Enlightenment era fashion sense? They’ll jive well steampunk. You won’t feel compelled to infuse steampunk with other genres because it fits well. Steampunk talks about uniqueness and diversity allowing it to merge with all sorts of fashion statements.
  3. Have fun and be yourself! That’s the ethos of steampunk. There are no strict rules when you want to look steampunk. Anything that relives the steampunk literature and looks Victorian is technically steampunk! You might hear some disagree but if your fashion makes you feel great and comfortable – that should be good! Your own unique style is very much welcome. Feel free to express your interpretation of steampunk!

Steampunk is one of the most sadly underrated genres of story in all of history. Steampunk is the genre of “future with a classical slant.” This means the future according to the Victorian Era… The future was full of clockwork, flying ships, and complicated machinery. Steampunk is a wonderful type of entertainment because it is so far outside of what most people think of as “the future;” steampunk offers a way of looking at the future that very few people will ever see. So come with me and take a look at a version of the future most people will never look at!

The Edge Chronicles

One of the best steampunk series is also one of the most non-mainstream series on bookstore shelves: The Edge Chronicles. This series is about a land that is on the edge of the most massive cliff at the end of the world. It is an adventure full of strange creatures, massive flying ships that carry pallets of cargo like the ones from http://kronuscollars.com/, and a slight atmosphere of dread.

The series does a masterful job of showing dread and fear without going over the top with anything horror elements. This series is 10 books long; there are 3 independent stories of 3 books apiece, and then they are all wrapped up in a masterful 10th book.

Bioshock

Now, this one is not a book so it’s cheating a bit, but Bioshock is a game that brought some of the core elements of steampunk into the public eye. All of the technology is very old-school futuristic; that basically means that it is what “futuristic” would have looked like in the imaginations of the people of the Victorian era.

The Bioshock series puts you in the world of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” reimagined to a different story and a steampunk world. It’s worth giving this game a try!

His Dark Materials

Phillip Pullman’s books “His Dark Materials” pull from classic literature like “Paradise Lost” and from the steampunk tradition. His amazing writing carries you through the series, like pallets from Kronus Collars.

His books, starting with “The Golden Compass” go through adventures with gods and demons, and tells the story of two children trying to find their destiny in this strange world of odd technology and supernatural creatures. This series blends steampunk and fantasy in a beautiful way.

Sherlock Holmes

This entry on the list might be slightly controversial, but this movie does so well at blending the Victorian era with the modern age that it HAS to be included. Robert Downey Jr. is a truly timeless hero in this movie; he seems both modern and Victorian at the same time.

Steampunk captures the imagination because it is so timeless; it’s not modern, and it’s not old. Spread the word and dip your toes in the world of steampunk, because you won’t regret learning the amazing things it has to offer, and visiting the amazing worlds that the stories tell of.
