Steampunk clothing and accessories are inspired by Victorian style steam-powered machinery. They feature cogs, pistons and vintage looking objects and use lots of black, brown and gold or brass colors. Steampunk costumes are fun to put together since you can buy sets of Steampunk gears and sew them onto any clothing that you like. For women a popular Steampunk item is a corset and for men a hat is often worn. Welder style goggles and large Steampunk guns are also often added to the outfit.
