My Facebook art project plan :)


SteamPunk is a mix of Art and Fashion, I love the concept because it is different, and you really can't go wrong in mixing it up with that style.

SteamPunk style is basically creating clothing from the Victorian era with bits of machinary gears and other techological pieces attached to them. They are also made up of a lot of leather like material.

SteamPunk is under many genre names, such as sci-fi, fantasy and speculative fiction tht came into practice during the 1980's and early 1990's. Work of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as victorians may have envisioned them, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural, art, etc. You can find this kind of technology in fictional work done by H.G. Wells and Jules Verne.
