What is Steampunk Fashion?

I have become infatuated with Steampunk fashion. The definition from Wikipedia. My summary: Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy that came into prominence in the 1980s-1990s. The term denotes works set in a world where steam power is used, mostly 19th century Victorian Era, but with prominent elements of fictional technological inventions.

Here are some photos of some dapper Steampunkers:

So as you can see, there are several influences coming into play here: Victorian, Gothic, Punk, Mechanical and Futuristic

Petticoats, Gears, Velvet, Corsets, Metal, Lace...such a juxtoposition of materials.

If this fashion is calling to you, there are thousands of vintage and retro items online. These are all from http://www.etsy.com/ and all under $25!
