Steampunk: an Explanation Part 3

Every so often, I throw out the term “steampunk” to my parents. I’m so used to the term that I expect others to know what it means as well, and no matter my explanation, my parents never fully understand what it is. That’s why I started Steampunk: An Explanation for my Parents, a three-part series outlining the basics of the steampunk genre.

Steampunk fashion is quite popular. Also, I would totally wear this to class.

Dear Mom and Dad,

If you are still stumped on the nature of steampunk, then I would recommend Google. There are a plethora of articles that can better detail the nature of steampunk with more accuracy than I can — although my own concept of steampunk is very general and not very specific, which is what you are probably looking for when you’re looking for an explanation on steampunk.

I hope you enjoyed this little blog-series just for you!
