The Alameda Point Fashion Faire is always themed, and this season’s theme was Steam Punk. Steam Punk is a
subgenre of science fiction and fantasy featuring advanced machines and other technology based on steampower of the 19th century and taking place in a recognizable historical period or a fantasy world (dictionary.com)To put it in a frame of reference gives a visual representation of the genere would be film, movies like,  The Golden CompassVan HelsingHellboy, and a personal favorite The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.  These all happened to be movies I really liked both from a story point of view and visually, so I guess I was a fan of Steampunk and didn’t even know it. Some fans of the subgenere dress in a Victorian meets Tech style of clothing, including some of the vendors. 


There was even an entire room dedicated to the awesome style, which featured primarily accessories but some of the clothing in the form of corset and hats in the other rooms would work well to complete a look.  I have to say I had the most fun in this room. 


WANT! ( nothing more to say) from Steampunk Jewelry Co. & Castle Walls 
Steampunk Jewelry Co. and Castle Walls had the best "gate way" to steam punk pricing (these were so fun too)
These cameo pieces were probably the most expensive items and rightfully so ( so beautiful) from Steampunk Mercantile
Awesome medals meet clocks from Col. James con Siegfried's Steamy Bits & Pieces
