Steampunk fashion for vintage nostalgia

I was surfing Polyvore and came across this interesting genre of fashion – Steampunk Fashion. It’s whimsical, romantic, nostalgic as well as historic with some styles that follow the fantasy world of Edwardian and Victorian time plus elements of science fiction and fantasy with a bit of Lolita and a bit of anime all rolled in one. Here are some sets I like and secretly wish I can put on!

If you love corsets and petticoats, you’ll love this for sure. It’s not something I can carry off but it’s a great eye feast for sure! Let’s say this is a prelude to Alice In Wonderland!

  1. Steampunk is gaining popularity in the USA now and I love it for its fantasy element. But you need plenty of attitude to wear it! :)

    Oh… I love Steampunk. Lip service sells steam punk clothes under the brand steam machine. I managed to get a top and bottom from them, and I must agree with Raintree. You need the attitude to wear them because here in singapore, people are gonna stare at you.

    And brown lips! Specially got a brown color lipstick just for the outfit.

  3. I adore Steampunk! I recently attended a Steampunk themed concert to this band: http://www.abneypark.com/

    Our outfits aren’t nearly as glamourous as those pictures, but it was our first time trying it. :)http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v380/Seraphina312/steamgilrs.png

      Wow, love the outfits! Not over the top like others I’ve seen. Is that you with the face blank out?

  4. Elaine says:

    I adore vintage/funky clothing!

  5. I am so tempted to buy. I have always love vintage. =)

      Vintage is cool but some pieces can be trashy looking too…

      Btw, sent you an email last week. Did you have a chance to look at it?

  6. Glad you like the outfits! There were some really wonderful, over the top ones at the concert, but we still got compliments and had a lot of fun!

    My friend is the one with the face blacked out. I didn’t know if she wanted her face on the internet, so I just blacked it just in case!

    The one on the right with the dark hair is me. :) I don’t look my best here, lol. It was a long day getting there and I was also supposed to be the “guy” of our pair.

  7. Fabulous finds…I love steampunk, vintage and fashion!
