Soul of Steampunk: Collision Between the Past and the Future
Compared with victorian style and punk fashion, steampunk looks a bit weirder because it could hardly be defined by a special era or an unique historical event. You can say it is a mixture of different genres but it also stands out alone as an individual genre, which is adored by many people and fans. Someone gave the definition about steampunk as follows: it is a form of science fiction which imagines us living in the past age like victorian era but there exist people who masters many ahead-of-time technologies and skills who looks far beyond the age.
Many people believe that steampunk comes from Jule Verne’s science fiction novel, which seems quite appropriate as the inventions and ideas in that novel is truly far beyond Jule Verne’s age. A typical men’s look of steampunk style is some guy in victorian dress but adorned with some sort of special scientific inventions like goggles or other weird objects. Weird but fascinating, isn’t it?
