Contributory Info: Steampunk
Steampunk.com defines steampunk as “first and foremost a literary genre, or least a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy that includes social or technological aspects of the 19th century (the steam) usually with some deconstruction of, reimagining of, or rebellion against parts of it (the punk).
“For example,” the website continues, “[steampunk novels] take place in the Victorian era but include advanced machines based on 19th century technology (e.g. The Difference Engine by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling).”
Steampunk fashion can be described as Victorian era clothing augmented by steam-powered technology such as mechanical hats and clockwork monocles, with antique brass, etched wood, and copper as primary materials.
