What is steampunk?
Steampunk is a speculative genre which blends the fantasy of science fiction with the aesthetics of the Victorian period and modern culture.
Put simply, steampunk is a Victorian vision of the future that never was!
It celebrates the nostalgia for a romantic and alternative past that never happened, characterised by technologies and inventions as people in the 19th century might have imagined them before the Industrial Revolution.
Think steam powered airships, mechanical clockwork gadgets and everyday items handmade with loving attention to detail.
At the heart of the steampunk movement is the fashion – a mashup of traditional Victorian period dress, goth glamour and accessorised with top hats, mechanical timepieces and retro futuristic objects.
Steampunk Christmas! Why?
At ChristmasTimeUK we’re proud of our local heritage and Lincolnshire roots.
Every year in August the city of Lincoln plays host to the Asylum Steampunk Festival, the largest and longest running festival of its kind, attracting thousands of people dressed in their finest steampunk attire for a weekend of art, literature, music and comedy.
As a Christmas decoration specialist we’re always on the hunt for fresh ideas and inspiration for new decoration themes which we think our customers will love.
When we visited the steampunk festival this year it gave us the idea for the theme, and thanks to our talented team of designers we turned it into reality, transforming Leeds Corn Exchange with the first ever steampunk Christmas display which received an overwhelmingly positive response from the public.
Furthermore, steampunk embodies everything we stand for as a company. It’s creative, extremely visual and celebrates the best of craftsmanship.
