What is Steampunk? Steampunk simply embodies a time and a place. The time... the late 19th century, the place... a steam powered world, where air travel by fantastical airships and submarines is as common as traveling by car, train, or boat It's a place where national boundaries and interests are vastly different than our own version of history, where the elegant and refined are as likely to get pulled into a grand adventure, as the workers, ruffians, and lower classes. The idea of space travel is not so far fetched; lost civilizations are found and lost again. Anything is possible, and science can be twisted to meet ones own ends. Visually speaking, there are many references to use for the creation of a Steampunk costume and character. The following are a small sample of classic movies that have inspired Steampunk; Sherlock Holmes, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, Around the World in 80 Days, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Steamboy, Van Helsing, Wild Wild West, and the Golden Compass... You get the picture. Remember you can come as Doyle's Steampunk version of Professor Moriarty or “Lost Worlds” Edward Challenger or as someone from the pages of history or literature. The sky's the limit. Use your imagination and have fun.
