Spotlight on STEAMPUNK.

STEAMPUNK is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s.[1] Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them; in other words, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, art, etc


I am fascinated by the aesthetics of this idea of Steampunk... 
The people out there creating this stuff are amazingly creative.  They are making everything from computers to jewellery using materials that fit in with this very industrial, victorian idea.  


I would definitely wear this :)

I especially love the jewellery...

There is even Steampunk Art! 
I love it!

The intricacies of these pieces are truly stunning! 
The ideals may not be up everyones ally but you have to appreciate the craftsmanship...I personally am loving this whole trend :)
