Today I read a post which went viral enough to have the Huffington Post pick it up and you’ll find a mess of news articles and syndicated stories on what started on January 16th with:

I’ve been #Steampunk’d – books, art, fashion, games & more (part 1 of 4)

I was asked what I thought the Steampunk culture was all about earlier this week… I had to think because it is about many things, but if I were to nail it down to a short and sweet thing.. it would be steampunk is about creation, invention and experimenting with specific styles…


For the next three weeks I am going to be having spotlights, articles, editorials and commentaries centered around Steampunk. Much of my focus in sub-cultures has been centered around the garb (clothing), food and photography. Be it Steampunk, cyberpunk and medieval reinactment (SCA). I have always been fascinated with the ideology of “punk” defining a sub-culture. Being partnered to an actual Punk musician has allowed for a much broader learning base than just dress up, eat and be merry. Steampunk itself for me was an easy win. I already was in love with the literature. Plus, I can admit I like pretties, and there are a few pretties I am especially fond of. Hats, corsets and eye-wear (on top of my flip-flop obsession, my sunglasses and other eye-wear collection is something to behold)…

Guess what are the top three things in a steampunks steamer trunk?
