Steampunkin’ it in googles and a bustle!

Steampunk is a combination of Victorian era dress and steam engine type things… brass findings, goggles, revolvers, and mechanical gadgets. unfortunately, none of my friends are very familiar with it and I had to explain my costume all night.

I’ve been in love with this style since before it knew its name. (LOL, That sounded so indie.) And amazingly enough, was able to pull together a while costume from my closet! Yes, I’m proud.

Steampunk lady!

    I thought it was meant to be a sort of alternate history where in the victorian era we stuck with steam technology and developed that instead of going down the electricity/digital route?
