I like to share other individual definitions of Steampunk. Remember … Steampunk is still an evolving genre and not set in stone.
: space and time travel, steam, Victorian sensibilities, and various other diverse rudiments melded into anachronistic combinations
: a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy literature emphasizing steam-powered and clockwork technology
: a past built from known history and what might have been to create a world that never was
Steampunk—as a genre, aesthetic, fashion, lifestyle— is difficult to define. Perhaps this is because unlike other terms, it can be any and all of those listed items at once. It’s recognized by the popular image of top hats and goggles, Victorian dress accessorized with practicality (or impracticality just as often). But it is much more than this. Steampunk is a realm of explorers, artists, airship pilots, scientists (mad and sane), tinkers, librarians, dreamers…anything you can imagine.
