What is your favourite thing about steampunk?
My favourite thing about steampunk? That's a difficult question to answer really but I think because I love the romance and fantasy of it all while combining so many elements from the Victorian and Arts & Crafts periods. My favourite setting would be the quintessential men's parlour with its dark, rich colours and deep stained woodwork...the overstuffed chairs and shelves filled with old leather-bound books...lots of whimsical gadgetry on every surface and the aroma of a good pipe.
I have grown up watching movies with elements of steampunk in them but for the longest time didn't know really what it was, just knew I was fascinated by it all.
