Things I love Thursday- Steampunk Edition

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s.[1] Steampunk involves a setting where steam power is still widely used—usually Victorian era Britain—that incorporates elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, art, etc. This technology may include such fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or more recently Philip Pullman and China Mieville. - Wikipedia

  5. These are some great images! I draw inspiration from a lot of different sources, and these pictures definitely provide a new formspring for ideas. Have you seen The Book of Eli? It's a terrific movie, and it's definitely got some steam punk influence in its costume and set design.

  6. Alyssa- You SHOULD do a steampunk photoshoot, I can just picture all the gorgeous things you would come up with. That would be awesome!

    Jessica Marie- I'm so glad these prove inspirational for you! I have seen Book of Eli and despite it's less than stellar reviews, I really enjoyed it- I love that apocalyptic steampunk aesthetic!
