Steampunk: A modern take on steam power period fashion, Steampunk mixes fashion reminiscent of the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras with science fiction-esque accessories. It's where old world charm meets new school hip. Call it NeoVictorian. Call it Jane Austen meets H.G. Wells. Just don't call it conventional.
