Steampunk Costumes: The Heat is On!

Posted on June 21, 2016 by halloweencostumes

Steampunk has been around for so long and it’s popularity has not faded ever since. The science fiction of steampunk is based on an alternate history of the Victorian setting which has been romanticized in many books and movies. If the story includes wild inventions that features steam powered machinery, then is it probably steampunk themed. Some of these include advanced technology but with the aesthetic and feel of a 19th century machinery. The gadgets may look and function like an old machine, the capabilities it possess goes beyond the technologies we have today. For example, you see a movie that features an old looking vehicle with many gears and a steam pipe but despite it’s ancient appearance, it can hover and travel at a speed of a bullet. So basically, steampunk is a retro take on futuristic technology. But machinery is not the only distinguishing factor to know that something is steampunk, fashion will also tell you.

Just as these steampunk themed gadgets have a specific look, so does people from the greatest era that never was — steampunk. For some who are not well familiar with steampunk, they usually get an advice of dressing Victorian and then add accessories. What will make it scream “steampunk”? Goggles. No steampunk fashion is complete without goggles. The goggles are like a trademark to the steampunk fashion. But don’t think you are limited to that because steampunk fashion can be versatile too when it comes to style. Steampunk fashion takes the looks of 19th century fashion and adding the feel of punk, contemporary street fashion, goth, vampire, ruffles and more. The idea of Lolita fashion is also related to steampunk only it inclines towards expressing youthful girlishness. Aside from the earlier mentioned goggles, there are also other accessories that can complete a steampunk look. A headpiece is also important and it doesn’t just include a normal top hat. Different hats can be worn and are usually accessorized with clocks, gears, chains, feathers and more.
