Steampunk Animation

Miyazaki Haya, the well-known Japanese animation director who directed many of the famous animation movies which have been well-received around the world. As a big fan of his works, I found this big shot director has a special interest in steampunk. The movie which earned him a great reputation was “Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind”, was a scientific fiction set in a special post-modern era. The design of the leading characters was quite of the steampunk styles. All the characters indeed go well with the themes, revealing the cruel side of modern technology and the pathetic life of the post-modern world. Another famous animation of Miyazaki Haya is “Howl’s Moving Castle”, in which the grand concept is steampunk style and the moving castle is a typical steampunk design. When you watch that movie, you would find that the moving castle is actually more like a giant robot thing but with a strong sense of machinery. 


Jule Verne: the Father of Steampunk

Although it seems not to be 100 per cent accurate that Jule Verne started steampunk as a genre by his novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”, he is surely a master of science fiction at his own time. His imagination is far beyond his contemporaries and his wild imagination did inspire a lot of artist and fans to create such a new genre.

If you think that steampunk comes out of nowhere then you must be very wrong. In Verne’s work, steampunk has already existed for long. The submarines and those advanced devices and that historic background combined together creating this weird steampunk style, which drove many fans in fantasy about this mysteriously creative genre.
Jule Verne tended to imagine himself to be the leading character of the novel who is always a weirdly scientist having big dreams and huge plans for his own life. He always focuses on inventing weird stuff and dresses himself in a madly scientific way.

Come on, being weird is part of being a steampunk.


Soul of Steampunk: Collision Between the Past and the Future

Compared with victorian style and punk fashion, steampunk looks a bit weirder because it could hardly be defined by a special era or an unique historical event. You can say it is a mixture of different genres but it also stands out alone as an individual genre, which is adored by many people and fans. Someone gave the definition about steampunk as follows: it is a form of science fiction which imagines us living in the past age like victorian era but there exist people who masters many ahead-of-time technologies and skills who looks far beyond the age.

Many people believe that steampunk comes from Jule Verne’s science fiction novel, which seems quite appropriate as the inventions and ideas in that novel is truly far beyond Jule Verne’s age.

The flattering here means covering the body parts you are not confident in. And they are usually hips and thighs. One of the most common mistakes is that an A-line skirt will help to cover hips and thighs. You should be careful, this is only true to some degree. Not all skirts are the same! Full skirt or ball gown is another type of silhouette in steampunk style dresses. It is good to cover up the hips and thighs.
Other than the silhouette, it is also important to take the fabric into consideration. The dress with too hard fabric may not look draped and natural. And the one with too soft fabric may not benefit for the figure.
To sum up, when we have curves or are self-conscious about a specific area, we usually tend to cover it up by wearing something quite loose. So for a gorgeous look, it is wise to choose flattering dresses.
