It is the Inventor who uses their talent and imagination to create the marvels of the steampunk world. Ceaseless tinkering, designing and occasionally blowing things up – the Inventor is a quintessential steampunk archetype.
The steampunk movement is built on Victorian science fiction. As such, steampunk fashion uses the Victorian and Edwardian eras as a basis and builds from there. One steampunk blogger advised “dress Victorian and then add”. It’s the additions – gears and gadgets - that make steampunk so fun. This pattern includes both Steampunk Boots, as well as Spats for your doll.
