However, the works of China Miéville and similar authors are sometimes referred to as belonging to the "New Weird" rather than steampunk. Steampunkforge.com has a slightly different perspective on how the phenomenon of steampunk came into being.

Indeed, with different starting assumptions, it might be possible to have a proto steampunk world as far back as 1 AD, when Hero of Alexandria was experimenting with low pressure steam and atmospheric engines. I have been wondering, can a Steampunk society(Steampunk as being powered by mainly by steam, but that doesn't mean other types of energy cannot exist, just that it isn't as popular) be possible in our universe/timeline?

Personally my experience with Steampunk involves some anime (Steamboy and Howl's Moving Castle come to mind), the movie Wild Wild West, seeing photos of people dressed up, and events like the annual Adelaide Steampunk Ball/LARP thingy. Plus there's cool stuff like that computer decked out in steampunk aesthetics including old-timey typewriter keyboard stuff.

As a body of work, Victorian fashion and culture is very common. Protagonists are often of the upper classes, and mad scientists are ubiquitous, whether they are the heroes or the villains of the piece.

Steampunk fashion consists of clothing, hairstyling, jewelry, body modification and make-up. The most common historical steampunk settings are the Victorian and Edwardian eras, though some in this "Victorian steampunk" category are set as early as the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and as late as the end of World War I. While most of the original steampunk works had a historical setting,[citation needed] later works often place steampunk elements in a fantasy world with little relation to any specific historic era. Historical steampunk tends to be science fiction that presents an alternate history; it also contains real locales and persons from history with alternative fantasy technology.

Goggles, unlike other accessories that have almost no function linked to them, can at least be noted to have some form of practical usage. Although goggles are a pretty normal steampunk accessory, most of the outfits don’t have them. Most people add them because they think that is what they supposed to do but believe it or not the goggles do serve an important purpose in the outfit.

It’s not that you’ll begin to add more information to draw in the reader, it’s that you’ll naturally expound on the little things that make a story seem real. Again, the more research you put into your story the more tiny but vital details will present themselves to you. It matches the fun gadgetry of sci-fi with the ornate formality of the 19th century for the best of both worlds.

For all of the steampunk fans, the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will be a mandatory movie to watch. It was filmed and released in 1968 and it is a completely unique masterpiece. The movie was released back in 2008 and it is set in underground city Ember. There, humankind has been living for centuries. The city is illuminated by lamps that are powered by a powerful generator.

To add to the steampunk vibe, steampunk goggles are usually made of copper or leather (or an imitation of these materials). Some designs also feature spikes – for a nice post-apocalyptic feel – or come with magnifying lenses to spice up the look with a touch of sophistication.

For everyday steampunk fashion, just tone it down a bit. Go for a simple Victorian-esque outfit and add some goggles, either around your neck or on your hat/forehead. There are several related styles that have grown from steampunk. The best known is "Dieselpunk", which is set in the 1930s.

Who created Steampunk?

Steampunk, before it became the full-blown sub-culture it is today, started out as a science-fiction sub-genre in the 1970s. Its fundamental inspirations go all the way back to 19th century Victorian writers, such as Jules Verne (author of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea) and H.G. Wells (author of The Time Machine).

For instance, if your character is an aviator or soldier, you can sew leather strips to the outside of the coat to give the outfit a more protective look. Begin with a regular piece of clothing, and spruce it up in a steampunk style.Reinvent your costume as you go along. Most DIY costumes end up at least a bit differently than the way they were first imagined.

Why is steampunk popular?

Steampunk movies are set in alternative reality, where humankind didn't invent electricity. Most movies feature the 19th century, the British Victorian Era style or Wild West in the United States. As such, steam-powered machines rule the world and they make it spin.

Aviator, motorist and motorcycle goggles were all introduced in the next century. Aviator goggles were also introduced in the early 20th century.

Steampunk feels real because it originates from a truthful place. Authors may reimagine Victorian society, but they do so by combining the benefit of hindsight with the authentic attitudes of the era. These inventions and characters were incredibly influential, and many authors built on the 19th century’s ideas of the future even as that imagined future came and went. Through this process steampunk has a basis both in fact and fiction, a pseudo-historical origin that gives it a tangible claim on legitimacy.

Steampunk uses a lot of visual descriptions, especially when it comes to the machinery and fashion. Oftentimes, a lot of description will go into how a machine works.
