Steam Punk Culture Introduction
If you are interested in Steam punk clothing fashion and i think you will be also interested in learning more about its culture. I will simply introduce its culture for you and you can have a read if you are interested in this topic.
What is Steam Punk? Most of the people will want to know its definition. Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction. Steampunk can be defined as an alternate history made possible by the inclusion of fantastic inventions created out of the Victorian culture. This is a study of the origins of Steampunk including the art, culture and fashion. Steam Punk takes elements from the Victorian or Edwardian time period and are combined with science fiction type inventions and machines that are built from the same elements.
About its history: Steampunk gained it's greatest importance during the 1980s and 1990s coexisting with the rise of Gothic and Punk culture. Sometimes these various cultures were, and still are, combined as a form of individualism that separates itself from mainstream culture. Almost all of the societal elements were formed well before Steampunk was defined but what is considered Steampunk culture is how these different Victorian era components are mixed with modern cultural influences.
About the Steam Punk fashion: People that adopt Steampunk fashion are not, normally, dressing the same as people did in the 19th century. It is is possible to do so and still be considered Steampunk since the fashion look is so dated. Victorian fashion is usually added to modern, outlandish, punk fashion for individual expression. There are people who have adopted Steampunk lifestyles, similar to the Gothic or Cyberpunk lifestyles, and define themselves by the fashion, art, and culture.
About the future of the Steam Punk: Modern society has evolved to the point of acceptance of various sub cultures. There is no reason that sub cultural societies will continue to exist and become integrated into what we will call "culture" in the future. Steampunk culture will coexist along with other sub cultures and whatever may be considered "normal" for the foreseeable future. Steampunk fashion, art, music, and inventions should evolve but will still retain the familiar attributes we call Steampunk.
