Steampunk means so many things to so many people. To me, it's a chance to imagine Oscar Wilde in the Wilde West coming along with me in a dirigible and taking tea on the steam powered rail. It's punk, in it's anti Empirical, airship pirate, high flying, science driven, cog wielding, Tesla loving, non conformist attitude. It's when you imagine yourself as Capt. Nemo or Sherlock Holmes solving a case using both alchemical potions and the DNA helix mixed together my a Swami from India and his African love goddess. Yes.. My steampunk is all about imagination and letting it run wild in a world where we are told to conform and to fit in and to buy the next IPAD and never ever remake or reinvent the wheel.

leather is the material of the era..This means gears intricately performing 
over top, overly larger, strong bizarre looking, Real Steam mutant vehicles,
