Steampunk Costumes and Accessories

One of the latest crazes to hit the world of fancy dress, Steampunk is a sub-genre of speculative fiction which is usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting.  Rather than simply confuse, let’s name some of the notable example of the Steampunk genre and we’re sure you’ll understand where Steampunk costumes come from.  Films like; The Wild Wild West, Van Helsing, Hellboy and The Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow are all classic examples of the fusion of the Victorian industrial movement with Science Fiction.  One writer aptly summed it up as being best described by the slogan "What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner."  So whether you’re looking for a Steampunk costume or simply some cool costume accessories to add to your collection, Karnival Costumes is the place to be and with our buyers always finding new products from around the world so our stocks and selection are being updated constantly.
