What is Steam Punk you ask?
It is an aesthetic movement based on the concept that Jules Verne and H.G. Wells were right about the future. Instead of cars and computers, we would have steam engines and air ships. Clothes stay more Victorian without the automotive revolution and mass production. Artisans and "Makers" are heroes. And adventures are entertainment.
In a nutshell, Steampunk is an alternate reality where Victorian meets Science Fiction (i.e. Jules Verne). Petroleum is not the power source, but steam and clockwork is. It is the time on creative invention. Time period is roughly the mid to late 1800's.
Bring the family and celebrate the fantasy, history and ingenuity behind Steampunk at Orange Empire Railway Museum on March 15-16 in Perris, CA. The Iron Horse/Family Steampunk Carnivale pays homage to the Victorian Era, Edwardian science fiction and the Industrial Revolution with a real, live steam-powered locomotive being the perfect backdrop.
