Steampunk – Dieselpunk with PanicSona

Intro

 

I’ve been wanting to do some Steampunk for a while but after watching Iron Sky I added Dieselpunk to my wish list. PanicSona contacted me and said she was interested in doing something similar so I asked Amalsia if she would like to join me in the studio. Combining PanicSona costumes with my props we had more then enough stuff to shoot both styles.

After experimenting with these genres a bit I’m really excited about doing more of shoots like this in the future.

Steampunk

 

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. Therefore, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or American “Wild West”, in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has regained mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. Steampunk perhaps most recognizably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era’s perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art.The word “steampunk” was invented around 1987 as a jocular reference to some of the novels of Tim Powers, James P. Blaylock, and K. W. Jeter. When Gibson and Sterling entered the subgenre with their collaborative novel The Difference Engine the term was being used earnestly. Examples include The Time Machine, Wild Wild West and Sherlock Holmes
