It's the sort of thing that some people like to wear as a fashion. Other people like to wear ink under their skin and metal through it, others like being draped in famous-names... equally questionable.

There is no point,
they just look awesome.
I agree.
We've had various waves in mainstream and counter-cultural movements that use elements of history or fantasy, steampunk is just another kind of fantasy, taking its influences from people like William Gibson and Alan Moore. No-one believes its real, but its a style.
