Steampunk Costumes

Steampunk fashion is one of the most creative and innovative forms of fashion ever to exist. Based on the Victorian era from the 1900s, Steampunk takes influences from the fashion and technology available and forms its own unique style. Steampunk crosses the Victorian time period and gives it a retro futuristic look, incorporating steam and industry to create a genre based on an alternative history. A Neo-Victorian history. One might commonly see a woman dressed in a post-apocalyptic style of clothing. With a dark-brown or rusty burgundy colour billowing full dress with a corset at the top, but also sporting big, strong boots on her feet, and several bits of metal clocks or timepieces shining on her belt or worn as jewelry. Men might be seen looking a bit like old-fashioned aviators, with hats decked out with metal trim, with lots of different era-mixing looks going on at once.

Steampunk is a science fiction fantasy look, and it is gaining momentum, or steam, in the fashion world. Watch for many beautiful Steampunk fashions to show up on runways around the world in the next few years. Here you can find some of the most popular Steampunk Costumes for men and women.

Steampunk Goggles

Popular Steampunk Goggles

Steampunk Goggles give any costume a touch of vintage style. Based on the type of goggles worn by professionals and tradesmen in the Victorian period, you would normally expect welders, pilots or steam engine drivers to have used them. Goggles have become one of the most recognizable pieces of Steampunk attire, with many a costume donning these Retro-futuristic fashion accessories.

Although, within some movements of the Steampunk community they believe goggles should only be worn with specific looks, ones which are based on characters who would have worn them at the time. For example you wouldn’t necessarily have a Victorian lady or gent wearing goggles, they would be better suited to an Inventor, or a pilot of an Airship. This is certainly a valid point the genre is based on a specific time period so therefore, theoretically, should use what was available at the time, but it is also an alternative history which is open to interpretation.

That being said, I believe there are no hard and fast rules for having fun and enjoying yourself, so if you feel your costume needs a pair of goggles, or you just love em so much that you have to have a pair, (and who can blame you) then why not add one of the coolest looking accessories to your costume this year. Some of these goggles are in the style of the 1900s version but with an industrial look, others have been modified to look like some eccentric time-travelling inventors spectacles. A great accessory for giving your Steampunk costume a more authentic look.
