Steampunk costumes reflect the true sense of steampunk subgenre – a subgenre originated from the combination of alternate history, Science fiction and fantasy. The basic nature of steampunk is inspired from Victorian era of Britain and Wild West of USA. Either fantasy or science fiction of these two regions is highlighted by steampunks. The imagined scientific technologies include analog computers, mechanical computes and lighter airship even lighter than air. Philip Pullman and Scott Westerfeld were contemporary authors who had mentioned about fictional machines in their work.

Steampunk clothing is all about futuristic innovative ideas of Victorian era with the same level of powered technology as steam engine has and for the final touch punk element is there, a word for rebellious nature. Some people just carry themselves as master of machine and some as fictional characters of Victorian era but I love to portray my individuality, with the nuance of rebellious side of me.

Captain of the Skies is my all time favorite steampunk dress. It reflects a bit of my rebellious side and induces a sense of power.

Like me if you want to have your own collection of punk Victorian costumes haunt them offline or online stores. Today myriad of punk clothing are in market with flavor of innovative designs and striking appearance, proving true to the basics of steampunk theme. If you are still unable in choosing right costume, no need to worry. Take inspiration from Hollywood movies based on punk gene. Sherlock Holmes, The league of Extraordinary Gentleman, Wild Wild West and Harry Potter (series) are the movies succeeded in manifestation of punk style.

There are other punk rage movies also but who can forget the character of Will Smith in Wild Wild West on backdrop of nineties.

If your heart goes for steampunk clothing, you need to check out the dresses of actors in movies stated above. Internet is easiest way of browsing for punk dresses. Search your favorite costume atleast on 3 to 4 websites for best deal however don’t compromise with the quality of fabric for the sake of money. I know how an ill fitted costume makes you feel helpless while attending events. Punk fashion is not a kind of low comprehension skill instead for the fans of steampunk clothing it is a way of exploiting imagination and intelligence to find a constructive idea. The influence of Lolita fashion, neo-Victorianism and romantic Goth subculture can be seen on punk sub-culture. You will experience a bit Lolita fashion in innovatively designed steampunk corsets and floor length skirts.

Victorian black or brown corset, bustle skirt and Victorian dress and boots in black or ivory color are one combination that makes an ideal steampunk costume. If you are invited in evening party and thinking of wearing a steampunk dress but ran out of time for ordering a punk dress or don’t have that much of amount then use your own creativity to make steampunk dress that you already have into a completely new and stunning outfit. Afterall steampunk is associated with creativity. Apply your imagination and be a part of aristocracy.
