What is Steampunk?

Perhaps one might consider it a “Ministry of Peculiar Occurences that Extend Beyond our Usual Fare.  
Steampunk is an inspired movement of creativity and imagination. With a backdrop of either Victorian England or America’s Wild West at hand, modern technologies are re-imagined and realized as elaborate works of art, fashion, and mechanics. If Jules Verne or H.G. Wells were writing their science fiction today, it would be considered “steampunk.”  
Over the years, steampunk has evolved into more than just a sub-genre of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Steampunk now extends into fashionengineeringmusic, and for some, a lifestyle
With the Victorian British Empire or American Wild West as the backdrop, steampunk projects are a challenge of making something elegant out of random bits and bobs. 
Picture MacGyver or The A-Team in the 1800’s.  Consider Dick Van Dyke’s Caractacus Potts and his creations in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,
or the ingenious contraptions from Artimus Gordon’s laboratory in the television show The Wild, Wild West.
What others see as junk or scrap parts, steampunk artists transform it into something new and expressive, be it an original creation or a modification of a modern convenience.
