Origin of Steampunk or Steampunk Fashion

The term was coined in 1987 by K.W. Jeter author of the novel Morlock night. He used the term to describe a genre of speculative fiction in which steam, not electricity, drove technological advancements. Since then it has been used to describe an artistic and cultural movement.

But that doesn’t mean that you add a bunch of gears to anything and label it as Steampunk.

I firmly believe that anything can become steampunk, but not everything is steampunk.

On the other hand Steampunk Fashion tends to mix modern styles along with influence from the Victorian era, such influence can be seen in Corsets, Coats, Steampunk hats and Steampunk Watches.

Steampunk Cosplay is a new trend that we are noticing getting in trend day by day.
