What is Steampunk?

Steampunk is a subculture of Gothic Victorian style that became popular in the 1960's. With similarities to sci-fi, imaginary Steampunk designs are usually based around clockwork engineering. 

The Steampunk fashion became popular in nerd culture, with it's mash up of sci-fi, victorian era and cogs and horror. The influence of the style can be seen in media like Treasure PlanetAetheric Mechanics, and in the apocalyptic landscape of Mad Max: Fury Road.

Steam punk conventions have begun to appear around the U.K, as well as being noticeable at the mainstream nerd conventions. As the style becomes more popular, you can stock up on Steam Punk goodies in our cosplay accesories here
