I hope this is right forum.. But anyway: I was looking around and saw no topics about Steampunk lifestyle(which I'm a....newbie in I guess you can say) and decided to make one and discuss Steampunk in general.

FAQ:

What is Steampunk?: The way I see it is its 19th century or Victorian times science fiction. Basically what if the indrstrial revolution never died and steam and clockwork were the only sources known to man? Or what if electricity was never discovered? That sorta thing.

What is Steampunk Lifestyle?: As far as I know(feel free to add or correct me) its where people dress up in period(19th century or 1800s) clothing and pretend to be their alter egos form a realm filled with adventure pseudo science and steamed power gizmos. They are also DYI(Do It Yourself) artists but not all of them, that make Steampunk themed outfits/jewelry/props that look like they belonged in Victorian or Wild Western times.

Where This come form?: I do not recall the exact date but the actual term "Steampunk" was coined in either 1800s or early 1900s and a writer wrote to a literary magazine about what to call a new genre of Science Fiction, that included Jules Vernes and H.G Wells and said "Something like Steampunk perhaps?" It was not until the 1990s that Steampunk became a lifestyle. In recent years it became a growing thing some speculate due to dependence of electricity.

I think you can't wear steampunk out in public
without over-doing it, as my boyfriend said.

Steampunk is lovely. <3
I'm fairly certain there's a steampunk thread somewhere in the Real Life Fashion and Style forum, but it deals mostly with the fashion. Nice to see that there are more people out there who are interested in more than just the neat clothes.
I'll probably make a longer post in this thread in the morning, I'm too tired to type coherently at this point in time. xp

I really wanted to discuss the lifestyle which deeply interests me. As long as I can remember the retro technology and the noble setting always interested me.

Well I did intend to ask on tips on making a Steampunk themed av but the lack of a general discussion topic prompted me to be concerned lol.

But there's a good chance, aside from listening to it on Youtube, we won't be hearing it much since the person that wrote it is no longer with the band.

I like some steampunk stuff and only in black, not the usual brown. I like the occasional steampunk accessory, not a whole steampunk outfit.
