Ok what is Steam Punk?
This is as brief and as compact a description you can give people that have no clue what steampunk is. Perhaps the most recent mainstream point of reference would be the episode “Punked” from ABC’s popular crime drama, Castle (seen above, with Nathan Fillion featuring an armoured forearm creation from Brute Force Studios).Depending on which resource you reference, be it the Wikipedia entry or Steampunk.com, you will find a variety of answers and interpretations to this creative movement that has been growing in popularity, but also capturing mainstream curiosity.
A Few More Details, if you please…
Steampunk is an inspired movement of creativity and imagination. With a backdrop of either Victorian England or America’s Wild West at hand, modern technologies are re-imagined and realized as elaborate works of art, fashion, and mechanics. If Jules Verne or H.G. Wells were writing their science fiction today, it would be considered “steampunk.”
