Steampunk

Steampunk can refer to a number of things: a fashion, a lifestyle, art, music, or other media. It is a sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy that is influenced by the Victorian era. The steampunk style is also influenced by work by Mark Twain, Mary Shelley, and Jules Verne. Basically, steampunk fashion is Victorian era inspired clothing with mechanical enhancements, such as goggles, gadgets, ray guns, and airships. Good examples of steampunk media are the Alexia Tarabotti novels by Gail Carriger, and Disney's film Atlantis: The Lost Empire. The video game Final Fantasy XII has steampunk elements.
