Steampunk is a word used to describe an artistic and cultural movement that revolves around machinery powered via steam, pipes, and gears rather than by electricity. This aesthetic seamlessly blurs the line between retro and futuristic through imaginative and ornately designed clothing and machinery. While some of the most prominent elements of the look are goggles, gears, and guns, the only true limit to this mechanized aesthetic is your imagination!
Renko Usami and Maribel Hearn (from Touhou Project) look as though they’re ready to explore the ins and outs of the steampunk-inspired world they find themselves in.
