Steampunk festival goers ‘punking pop culture’, making cosplay accessible | Features | ABC Australia

At first glance, steampunk might look like a celebration of the 19th century England but dig a bit deeper and it’s anything but.

Even though steampunks are styled in top hats, coat tails, corsets and aviator goggles from the Victorian era they certainly don’t share those sensibilities.

Instead, they seek to combine steam technology, mechanical engineering and beautiful fashion with sustainable practices and inclusive attitudes.

According to one professional steampunk, “It’s taking the all the good parts of the Victorian era and punking the bad parts, it’s actually quite beautiful in that way.”

Besides punking the archaic elements of the Victorian area, steampunk also turns traditional cosplay often associated with youthful, pop culture on its head.

It’s all about original characters, rejecting fast-fashion, and being able to tinker and upcycle.
