Association of Steampunk and Renaissance Trends
Renaissance and Steampunk – these are the two trends, which are widely popular in the recent times.
These trends are different from each other, but there is something, which associates them. Perhaps, this is the reason why the steampunk weekends are celebrated in some of the renaissance festivals.
The first association we find in the steampunk. It is a known fact that the steampunk is the combination of a number of trends. It is based on the Victorian era science fiction, but the influence of the other trends can also be witnessed on it. The renaissance trend is one of most popular, which provide stuff to steampunk.
On the other hand, the similarity of the renaissance and steampunk trends is quite obvious, and both were flourished in Europe after the gap of several years. So, these two trends have some similarities, which are known by the clothing lovers.
Moreover, a new fictional genre has also been fantasized based on the lines of the steampunk. It is known as clockpunk. As steampunk is based on the Victorian era energy sources, the clockpunk provides the glimpses of the renaissance age fictions. In the steampunk fiction, we find the futuristic technologies running through the steampunk. Similarly, the clockpunk fiction offers the mechanical energy and gun power. Interestingly, many of the films have both steampunk and clockpunk fiction. So, we can also find the mix of renaissance and Victorian clothing based on this film.
In addition, one can also try to make the combination of steampunk and renaissance costumes. For instance, you can wear the renaissance shirts with steampunk skirts or trousers and so on. This type of combination proves to be perfect in the themed events such as the renaissance festivals and pirate festivals. Both these trends are widely popular in the western world in the recent times.
