Steampunk, anybody?

Any UGers into the old Steampunk thing? If so, which parts? The fashion? The fiction? The music?

Do you own any Steampunk gear? Post, people! ^_^

I've always been a big fan of the art; just the whole style of it.

I still want an Elder Scrolls meets Fallout meets Steampunk type RPG.

Not really.

I have some steampunk goggles that I bought for the workshop because they were less likely to steam up.

They're not very good though.

I guess there's a fair bit that I like, but I'd never wear it.

The art is cool. Never read any kind of fanfic about it.

I like the look of stuff from the industrial revolution, and I like the look of stuff modeled after it.

But it's never more than

"oh that looks pretty cool"

I like the fashion, I think it's pretty cool. I don't think I'd ever wear it though unless it's for Halloween. I do own a corset though so maybe I can dress it up.

For the fashion part, I only have one pair of goggles and a couple of pocket watches. I need to get more gear >.<

I do, however, have a training Thespian friend who intends to make a Steampunk version of 'Phantom Of The Opera', which will be amazing...

I'm more into cyberpunk, in regards of literature, fashion and movies. I don't really like all that nu-old-skool kind of steam thing.

man i can just feel it coming, ive already seen traces of it in design in various products and it's "cool" and "retrochic" enough that it's gonna catch on like wildfire. Give it a year or two, but i promise you there will be steampunk all over the place soon enough

Yes, mainly Steampunk-themed games or TV shows. Also, there's a few decent Steampunk webcomics.

The music?

Yes, to a degree. Check out http://shop.vernianprocess.com/album/behold-the-machine

The album used to be free, but now it costs $10.

I think some of it is cool, like steampunk computer cases and keyboards and things (although just plain wooden keyboards and computer cases are nicer. The novels are generally awful, though.
