Steampunk style basically originates from the idea of an alternate history where Newtonian physics never existed.
It takes place in the past where the machines they have are much more advanced than usual for the time period. These are often powered by steam and often don't make real-world sense
Occasionally electricity existed but it is treated as an almost "magical" entity due to no one understanding it

It came from Sci-fi books originally

It is set in the Victorian ages, which is where the main clothing ideas are pulled from (corsets, waistcoats, poofy skirts)

Its actually really difficult to explain XDD
But alot of people like to make costumes based on it, like their own OCs


Oh also airships exist Very Happy
