Brickspace Dictionary: Steampunk

Steampunk (n.) (Steam·punk)
Steampunk is the name given to a genre of MOCs, comics, and other items that fall into the category that can be described generally as 'Neo-Victorian'. Neo-Victorian is an alternate history in which the technological workings of the Victorian era are applied to the technologies of the modern day, or even the future. This mainly means taking things like spaceships, trains, hot-air balloons or mechas and adding a Victorian style to them: so transposing a brown-and-dark gray colour scheme, with pumps and chimneys and pipes and grilles and pistons and clockwork greeblies. The Steampunk theme has become very popular amongst MOCers.

Steampunk has also affected the movie industry. Films such as The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen  are based on a Steampunk theme.
