Steampunk is certainly counter-culture and that's seen nowhere quite as well as in the clothing. Women's Steampunk clothing, in particular, is hard to grasp at first blush. It is inspired by, if not taken directly from, Victorian styles and modes of dress. The dresses are beautiful, flattering and modest. The modesty is probably one of the things I love the most about these dresses (though the beautiful fabrics help, too) and I find it sadly amusing that a full length dress and a modest neckline are considered to be revolutionary.
|As with most outfits, the accessories truly make this one special.|
|It's the velvet that makes this dress for me. I just want to go and touch it.|
|It's not just the ladies who are getting into the act. Don't worry gents, we'll get to you next week!|
|This beautiful design is for a wedding dress. I love that it's not all white!|
|Somebody once told me that Steampunk is what happens when Goths discover the color brown.|
Well, if that's the case, I love the way they use a new color!
