The world of Steampunk Literature and Steampunk Cosplay was born out of visions of a post-apocalyptic, Victorian-era past that never came to be. Drawing inspiration from the classic literary work of H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, and others, the Steampunk Genre is an eccentric and unusual blend of Science Fiction and 19th-century Era aesthetics.
Stories about mechanical time-travel machines, cowboys with mechanical replacement limbs, and steam-powered flying contraptions are just some of the vivid plot devices used in Steampunk film and writing. General audiences have had some exposure to the Steampunk genre, mainly thanks to popular films like 'Wild Wild West and 'Time Machine'. Indeed, Steampunk visual art and aesthetics seek to make the most out of traditional Victorian and Western apparel, combining hues of brown, bronze, copper, and aged gold with steam-powered mechanical accents like laser revolvers, mechanical prosthesis, and aviator-style goggles.
