Cyberpunk and Steampunk are frequently mistakenly associated with each other. Whereas they actually have an influence on the other person and share like-minded lovers, Steampunk is actually an totally separate movement. Of the two, Steampunk is more authoritarian in characteristics and representative of a world that passes itself off as utopia; when in reality, is reigned over under strict regulations by the powers that be.

That being said…
Steampunk costumes as a fashion fad seem like just what they represent – a cutting-edge yet underdeveloped style similar of something out of a Jules Verne or HG Wells science hype novel. Imagine a combination of contemporary Goth and futuristic Goth rolled into one! The look is not objectionable, and in truth is kind of cool looking and brings on an edge! Picture Edward cullen Scissorhands meets Elvira Mistress of the dark suits Xena the Warrior Princess or queen meets Mr holmes and dr watson. Sort of.
Bits and pieces
Several of the more usual device involved in Steampunk attire is as follows:
Spats; outdated albeit with a funky Steampunk style
Fingerless gloves, leather of course
Buckles, buckles, and more buckles… everywhere!
Machinist eye protection, I don’t really know what they’re riding but apparently they need eye protection
Very long old English coat with tails, top hat or bowler (cane optional)
A great altogether different look for Steampunk clothing for a male is of a Victorian driver:
Pouch belt; this appears like something one might carry ammunition in, which gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘road rage’
White beautiful shirt (with ammo… )
Brown suede jacket with fur collar and ‘badge’ of sorts
Yet another look males, the ‘Studly Gentleman’:
Bowler hat, monocle, handlebar moustache
Grey clothing with braided decorations, precious metal buttons each and every braid-end (reminiscent of municipal war jacket decorative style)
Now for the women:
Bathing suits that are frilly yet somehow manage to convey a rough and tough exterior
Little clothing with lots of ruffles and sequined studs giving out the same aura
And, you guessed it, machinist glasses
Very small little bowler hat frizzy hair pinned to the top of her head, Janis Joplin-esque round tinted eyeglasses
Leather choker with fastened gold brooch, leather devices worn diagonally from glenohumeral joint down to waist (ammunition belt style)
A little brown short vest over a tight short dark dress, and kick bottom, high heeled boots to die for!
Various bobbles, trinkets, badges, pocket designer watches, brooches, chains studded leather arm and wrist groups and as such provide as Steampunk jewelryand accessories
