Today was a very good crafty day. It was so nice and I felt empowered! So I spent the whole day on a project. It is quite steampunk inspired.
Steampunk is a genre of Science Fiction that fuses elements of Victorian culture and technology, with elements of modern society. It is experessed in many different mediums like novels, fashion, art, gagetry, etc.
The fiction usually takes place in a world with an alternative history where steam power is still widely used. Common elements of Steampunk style are Victorian or Wild West fashions, with dashes of fantastic clockwork gears and other retro-futuristic pieces of flair.
