         2012 Steampunk Showcase & Historical Blog

As you might as well know, Steampunk has made a HUGE come back in the last decade. There are several groups, celebrations, gatherings & expositions dedicated to and for the love of Steampunk. Millions all over the world create, wear & pay homage to Steampunk! Not only is it the NEW wave of fashion, it was also popular in the 1980's! TONS of artisans from around the World have incoorperated Steampunk into thier yearly creativity and you would wonder why! It has appeared in Sci-Fi, Fantasy & even Historical works of art ranging from the 1900's fashion (example: Sissy Queen of Germany & Hungary) to modern contempory movies & books. To begin I must include my mothers fantasy art included at zazzle in our Fantasy Section! 

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s.[1] Steampunk involves a setting where steam power is still widely used—usually Victorian era Britain or "Wild West"-era United States—that incorporates elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology, or futuristic innovations as Victorians might have envisioned them, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, art, etc. This technology includes such fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or the contemporary authors Philip Pullman, Scott Westerfeld and China Mieville. Other examples of steampunk contain alternative history-style presentations of such technology as lighter-than-air airships, analog computers, or such digital mechanical computers as Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace's Analytical engine. Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by individual artisans into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical "steampunk" style, and a number of visual and musical artists have been described as steampunk.

This month I have constructed Zazzle Designers/Artists that pay homage to Steampunk in thier creative careers. All candidates have been hand picked for this display and the only theme is just GOOD artistic use of Steampunk and execution of what Steampunk looks and stands for. Hats off, or might I say Hats "ON" to these AWESOME artists!
