I went to SteamCon V in Seattle last weekend and decided to share some of the highlights. If you’re not aware of what Steampunk is, it can be hard to define. But I’ll give you the Wikipedia version if it and allow the photos to say the rest.
“Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery,especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era orAmerican “Wild West”, in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has regained mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power.”
Yeah, it’s a little confusing. But with its rise in popularity it is likely that you’ve seen steampunk in movies, clothes and jewelry without even realizing it.
