Steampunk Costume Ideas
What is Steampunk?
Over the past few years, steampunk has been gaining a lot of momentum; especially when it comes to costume parties. It is, in a nutshell, a cross between science fiction and alternative universes.
The design of most steampunk costumes can be thought of as the wild west with a whole lot of technological advances; only these advances are generally powered by steam, instead of more advanced creations. Will Smith and Kevin Kline stared in the cult classic Wild Wild West which used a lot of implausible steampunk technology; such as Doctor Loveless' massive mechanical spider.
Additionally, steampunk costumes can also be based on certain aspects of daily life from past eras or sub-cultures, such as the Victorian age or even swachbuckling pirates.
In just about every alternative universe, harsh environments are the norm. Whether this is due to nuclear fallout, or simply a matter of being set in the wild west, you will need a great pair of goggles to protect your eyes from the dust, grime, and sun.
These steampunk goggles features dark tinted lenses and are now available in black, silver or white.
These glasses are not only made for show, however. They comes with 100% UV400 ultra-violet protection.

To round out this amazing costume, however, you will need to add a pair of vampire fangs and a pair of thigh high sheer stocking that come with outstanding opaque black stripe detailing!
