Steampunk ~ it's all the rage!

As of last year, I had never heard the term Steampunk. But then after watching two seasons of Warehouse 13, I got on board with the cleverly cool genre that is popping up all over these days.  Here are some fun examples of Steampunk mixed with another fascination of mine ~ Taxidermy. According to Wiki ~ Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fictionalternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s. Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy.
