Science fiction fun in the modern world
This September, come to the Steampunk Festival and indulge in 19th century science fiction fun in the modern world.

Steampunk Festival, National Railway Museum, Port Adelaide (İpaula mcmanus)


Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that fuses Victorian futuristic fashion with the industrialism of steam powered machinery. It's an eclectic mixture of top hats and waistcoats, corsets and show dresses. The costumes are artistically blended with industrial steel and over engineered goggles - Steampunk fashion is part costume play, part science fiction and part non-specific whatnot-ery.
