Feb 13, 2015 Steampunk To quote The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences: "Steampunk is an inspired movement of creativity and imagination. With a backdrop of either Victorian England or America’s Wild West at hand, modern technologies are re-imagined and realized as elaborate works of art, fashion, and mechanics. If Jules Verne or H.G. Wells were writing their science fiction today it would be considered “Steampunk”. " Like all fashions “Steampunk” can of course be adapted to suit your own style and your way of life. As much I would like to wear a metal and leather sleeve with heavy brass ornaments it would prove quite unpractical in daily life! So in my attempt to make my own style of Steampunk for today (I will be more adventurous the next time...) I have put together an outfit with fishnets, Victorian style lace ups, tweed trousersand a vintage waistcoat decorated with plenty of pearls. I can hear the Steampunks shouting at me and maybe it is blasphemy but I have been inspired and that is at the end of the day what fashion is all about.
