In The Bleak Midwinter: Steampunk Winter Whimsical

There’s no feeling like the one I get on a certain kind of still winter night. Snowflakes falling silently, fresh snow on the ground that has not yet mingled with footprints. All of these things hold a certain type of magic. There probably isn’t one word that can describe this, but words like ethereal and whimsical do a fairly good job. There’s a juxtaposition of the cold you feel physically, with a certain warmth emotionally. The lightness and delicateness of the falling snowflakes against a certain, pressing weight that falls over a place in winter.

Being a lover of both fashion and the culture of the Victorian era, I love steampunk style. Steampunk is a style that draws influence from Victorian clothing and machinery, as well as some futuristic elements. It makes for a whimsical pairing, and calls to mind beloved stories like Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

Much like enchanting snowy nights, there are contrasting elements in steampunk style. The heavy fabrics in the clothing, the weighty metals used in steampunk accessories, there’s a Gothic sense to it all. Yet there is an ethereal sensibility to it as well. A lightness of heart, a presence of a bygone time as well as one that is only fantasy.

With this look I hope to show you a little glimpse of this magic.
